Crotchless Chaps Crotchless Chaps

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Let's be honest with ourselves...

I can't bring myself to give this more than a 7/10 right now. The jokes were decent and your art style is quality, however, the pure lack of actual animation turned me off to the whole thing. I never felt like anything was happening, even in the club scene. Had you spent a few more hours drawing just a few more poses and using some different camera angles this could have been awesome.

I will say that for a true short, this style works well. This submission was a tad too long for it, though. Also, some of your jokes would have benefited from a little bit more physical presentation.

I really like your stuff, but I guess what I'm trying to say is you need to work on your pacing and staging before you reach the quality I demand in a 10/10 worthy flash.

Also, :3 , >:( , and 8===D

I demand those extra 3 points.

The Slide The Slide

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Nice...for now

For your first submitted solo project, this wasn't bad at all. I lol'd and had a good time watching it. The animation was done well and you clearly took the time to make things look good.

I don't have sound enabled where I'm sitting right now, so I can't say anything about that.

The problem with this short is that...well, it's too short. I was hoping more would happen, if just a little bit. In my opinion, things like this are better submitted in collections with a menu where the viewer can select from at least five shorts.

Because of the length, I cannot give this more than 3/5 and 7/10. However, I commend you on your talent and patience (fbf is a B and a half). Can't wait for more in the future!

Im sad and sick (not because of you)
so you're trying to tell me that the animation was okay, you laughed and you enjoyed the animation but just because it wasnt long its supposed to have low score ? Okay, no problem, I just didnt thought about animations this way.

The Real Legend 3 The Real Legend 3

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Humor and Nostalgia = tada

^Disregard nonsensical title.

This was animated incredibly well. I'd venture to say you will rival Adam Phillips soon enough. Although some of the voices were a bit off at times, and the humor wasn't always funny enough, this animation not only kicks ass, but makes me want to bust out my N64.

I would suggest working on your lip syncing a tad, but it wasn't a huge problem. The biggest issue I have with this Flash is the writing, which is awkwardly paced and could do with some brushing up.

I can't wait to see your next piece. Props to the actors too, who did a good job despite a few botched lines.

Wow, fantastic! When is it coming to Steam? This game is a perfect arcade hit.

The Scale of the Universe The Scale of the Universe

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Very Nice

great work; blew my mind

Although this interactive piece could benefit from a graphical overhaul, you've developed an interesting mechanic and successfully presented a mystical concept in such a way that it can be easily grasped (as firmly as it can be, at least.)

RetroShoot RetroShoot

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Fun and Action Oriented, but a few flaws

I cannot bring myself to give this game a perfect score, but I can tell you it is worthy of earning more than the standard 2/5 and 5/10 I give most shooters and similar games submitted here simply because they are mostly all clones.

The style was great, though unfortunately a tad too reminiscent of Geometry Wars...but what this game lacks in graphical originality, it makes up for in excitement. I don't even have sound on this computer, and I'm having a blast playing.

A few problems I noticed:

-When the screen flips (nice touch) the text still displays as if the screen had not flipped. I don't know how you built this, but depending on how your code is written/how embedded that text graphic is, this could be easy to mildly irritating to fix. However, I think it would be worth your time considering it's pretty jarring to the senses.

-I can tell you spent some time on the graphics. They look nice when they aren't moving. I take personal offense (not really) to the shape tween you used to animate your enemies. I know you have a formula for making neon-sign looking lines...please take the time to make at least one other different frame for the enemies. I guarantee it will look 10x better than a shape tween.

-Although I see the appeal of auto-shoot, it left me feeling a little out of control. Some usable items would be nice, like a bomb I had to press "A" to use or something.

Other than those specific qualms, I have no problems with this game. In fact, it's pretty fun and easy on the eye. Please bring us more in the near future! I award you 3/5 and 7/10!

P.S. I never reached a boss level because I suck at these games. Is there one?

You're on your way

You obviously have the talent to pick up your guitar skill in the next few months. Keep at it.

This song is pretty cool. Did you write it?

I love you

A few years ago, I burned all of your then current tracks on CDs and listened to them while I was meditating. Now, I do my work to your music. I find it helps me keep a steady pace, almost as if it is the metronome for my work day.

Anyway, enough sappy stuff. You are amazing, sir.

Personal Desk Personal Desk

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Sine you were going for realistic...

I can't give you too many points after you've stated your intention. However, the model itself is quite nice. There isn't a whole lot of detail in this, but there doesn't need to be. You did what there was to be done correctly.

This is lacking the proper materials and lighting, but I'm sure you know that because your robots are more than ten times better.

3D-xelu responds:

hehe.. thanks :P

this was my first render with Vray and i know the lighting suck..

it was for a 2 step chalange... step1 > build a desk step2 > fill it with "items"

aaannddd nobody did the step 2 so i was to lazy to finish it :P

Naga/Protoss hybrid Naga/Protoss hybrid

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Wow, awesome

You really nailed the Protoss armor. The Naga comes out in the body, but you might have added some fins to the head, protruding from the helmet. The light effect on the tail piece is pretty cool, but the rest of the tail sections lack finished detail like the armor has.

Overall, it's a good piece of work. Keep it up.
