Too real. Have you tried Blender's grease pencil?

Also, in case this happens to anyone else: a .fla is secretly a zipped folder! Rename it to a .zip and extract it and you can see all the internals. A corrupt file is usually due to there being invalid XML somewhere in a symbol or the timeline. It takes a lot of effort but you can keep moving frames/library items out of the project folder until Flash thinks it can open the project again to narrow down the offending content, and then put the rest back. I salvaged a lot of work on a NATA entry in 2012 that way.

Wow! Ill keep this in mind!! God bless your soul man! :) Ill try it out when I get a chance next time! Also as for the Grease pencil, I have yet to try it. I've been busy on one software for a while I never actually took the opportunity to try it yet. Im open to trying it though.

The animation is really smooth and the detail you put into the shading (e.g. the spots and blemishes on the dinosaurs' skin) adds a lot of depth. Great work!

DarkGosp responds:

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your comment! And it’s cool that there are people who notice these little details. I think they’re really important :D

You got a laugh out of me with this one. I'm getting some great Lonely Island vibes from this. Good stuff!

HarveySeasalt responds:

Thanks dude! They’re definitely heroes of mine so that means alot. Appreciate it

The art had a nice amount of cubism in there, and I don't think I've seen much of that at all in animation before. It's a lot harder to make non-realistic perspective work in animation when you expect things to move in familiar ways. So, idk where anyone thinks they've seen stuff similar to this before. It's good stuff.
Also, I love me some good rihanna lyrics.

This has some really great shape and form and motion going on. Part of the point of art, I think, is to take abstract human concepts and emotions and try to reconstruct them in a different form, and there's no point in limiting that form to concrete, obvious storylines. There are other ways to reconstruct feelings.

Minus 0.5 stars, not enough rings on it

I thought you did a really great job with this! I watched it first from the thing you uploaded to dumping grounds, so there was no description, and I think it presented its message clearly without the need for explanation, so don't worry about that! So you've got an interesting concept going for you, an interesting way of presenting it, really nice art and really good movement (without too high of a frame rate, but honestly I think a higher frame rate would actually take away from the final product in this case.) You've certainly earned your daily feature and a 5/5 from me.

dylan responds:

Thanks, Dave! Glad you liked the art, that nose style I've been using started because I thought the noses you and Francis had been doing were totally awesome.

Now I just gotta do my sarcastic head turn. Wait til you see the idea I have, it's so sarcastic that it's sincere

Hey man, this was really really good! I love the direction you went with this. Keep up the great work!

dylan responds:

I tried to make it sarcastic, but it came out metaphoric. 0/5

I really liked this. The whole concept was great, and it was well executed, and also great job on the score, because that was great too! Best of luck!

Your style is fantastic. Keep it up!

Butzbo responds:

Thank you mister Pahgawk!

Well, that was hilarious. Everything about it was great.

I'm a computer graphics programmer who occasionally still makes art.
