This was different and quite entertaining. The intro reminded me a lot of the ending to Portal 2 where the outside of Aperture Science just looked like a boring shed. Then the rest of the way is a never ending trip back to the start (?).
The art style was the same as always which is good. The penguin itself was quite different along with the fact that Aperture happened to have some axes and AK-47s sitting around read to be used. The rainbow blood from the doppelganger was quite surprising since I was expecting it to simply fade away and out of existence when it got chopped in half by the portals.
As for the story, I thought it was good. I do think however that a few faulty turrets being added in could have made this humorous allowing the penguin to question why GLaDOS sent one that can't shoot. However, I felt disappointed with how the penguin finished off GLaDOS that easily. I would have imagined that she at least slipped up by trying to put a turret by the penguin with the penguin tricking the turret into shooting at GLaDOS to finish her (in reference to that glitch that can be done in the game).
The song itself was really nice to listen to and had an adventure vibe to it. The sounds used were in sync every moment of the way too.
Overall, I thought this was a very interesting change, but I feel that adding in a few more things as I stated above could have made this even more humorous than it already was.
Kind of mixed on this submission. While it is about weed being legal, I failed to see how mushrooms were relevant unless it's a joke?
The animation was nicely done. However I noticed at times that there were moments where the lips and voices were slightly off sync but it's not too noticeable to distract a viewer. I liked the tv border and the brand parody used. Kind of gave a feeling of watching a news report up until the music began and things just got strange from there.
The music seemed pretty fitting and relaxing at the same time. The static and background noises added more to the piece. Lastly, the voices were pretty good, and the lines were funny.
Overall, pretty good.

This was quite funny for a short piece.
The audio was nice. I like how all the voices were clear and there was no background interference. As for the audio being used in the robot began to sing, what was the song called? Also found the mother to be a bit funny yet pushy at the same time with her voice.
The art was great. The only part I would have changed is when Milkshake was walking. Instead of him being that big, he could have been slimmer so his back does not show an excess amount of fat. Unless; however, he is meant to be just a fat teenager/child. Another thing I would have changed is the plate at the ending. Instead of the pancakes looking like they may have had slight mold on them, the saliva coming from his mouth should have been transparent.
The story seemed simple enough to follow: Milkshake woke up a bit late and ended up missing the bus... or did he? I question it given at the end it shows him drooling and having not gotten up from the table at all. Is his mom giving him drugs to sedate him? The part where the robot began to sing was really nice. If you had extra time you should have expanded onto the song a bit and had sing some more.
Overall, the saliva on the pancakes at the end should have been slightly transparent. Really nicely done flash!
Dude thanks for the awesome review.
As for the music, I made it all, and yea I had to cut it short because the project was due like 3 hours after I finished it (not including the guitar audio I did and sound effects)! As far as the art, i'm really trying to improve, and i'm glad you liked it. The walk cycle was seriously about 30 different keyframes and yea, he's supposed to be chubby, but I did notice inconsistencies :/. Again with the ending, it was a bit rushed, but I did attempt to have his saliva transparent and alpha'd.
As for the story, the mom gave him drugs because he is a chubby, ecstatic, imaginative young boy, and sadly, that is what doctors give to people with ADHD rather then channeling it in a different form. Thanks anyway for the review!
This was a masterpiece!!
The animation I must say is flawless. The way Batman licks his own mask as he gets ready to eat Pikachu is just marvelous! Alright but seriously, the animation is much better than the original version. The knife, Pikachu, the carrot, and Batman are all much better in detail. The fork and knife having the odd shape to them seems off. I think sticking to just having a round tip at the bottom than jagged looking would have been much better.
Cutting into the Pikachu it was nice seeing some detail as the skin/fur comes off the Pikachu and Batman even indulges in eating the fur of Pikachu as if it was nothing! The carrot looked better as well. Would have been nice if Pikachu and the carrot both had some steam coming from them if they had been cooked unless the blood from Batman's mouth indicates it is being eaten fresh.
The story here is sad and short. It seems to be the tragic tale of a recently caught and killed Pikachu (most likely by Alfred) being put on a table with a carrot up its ass for Batman to enjoy. Batman then proceeds to lick his mask with some saliva sticking to it. He then proceeds to stick the fork into Pikachu's side and cutting at it with the fork. He then eats the morsel of flesh that he had just cut off from Pikachu.
The music used was great and added some atmosphere to the loop. However I feel more sound should have been used. For instance, Batman licking his mask could have been accompanied with a licking sound. As he cuts into Pikachu, possibly the sound of a knife cutting against something soft. Lastly, for Batman eating, the sound of him chewing on the meat would have been nice.
Overall, improvement parody of the original, nice work. Have fun with future loops and animations!
This has potential to be better.
The animation itself looks nice, the guy could look smoother if you took some time working to sculpt out the face and making it rounder. Same thing can be said for the hair. Spend more time and try to make it look more cartoonish rather than having spikes being there in the back. The kitchen and outside looked fine.
The sound effects used were nice. However, I feel there could have been more sounds such as the guy walking to get the glass of water then the sound of drinking the water. For the outside, you could use some natural outside sounds or a bit of wind.
As for the story, should be a bit longer. Saying this as even though it looks that the spider will eat the lion, it could just as easily be befriending it.
Overall, practice and you'll keep getting better.
thank you for the review
This was kind of interesting to watch.
One of the first things I notice when the animation begins is the one person who has "Insanitarium" written on their forehead. Then the rest seem to be various avatars walking on and off the set as the song plays in the background.
The song itself made this little animation seem a bit off. For one, it doesn't really sound to be a holiday song and two, the sound is in low quality. Was that the only version of the song you were able to find anywhere or did it have to be compressed?
Overall, aside from the song, I don't think anything else can be improved.
Only version of the song that didnt sound like it was coming from an 80s radio. Sorry man.
I found this to be rather strange. However this is improvement to this which is much better. Given that this is a trailer and not a finished product, the sketches of scenes that will appear look promising along with the two odd faces at the end, possibly siblings/friends?
The animation here is seen very little. Aside from the face looking side to side and the two dots moving along a canvas, the rest is very still.
The audio fits the situation building up suspense as one wonders what will appear in the full version.
Overall, good improvement, looks promising.
This is a psyhological one,so many things are in fact very sugestive
I found this lively and entertaining. Sad how after all that time Jigglypuff hasn't found it it isn't due to her being boring, but rather Sing always puts people to sleep due to its effect.
The fact that Jigglypuff suddenly became sadistic after a small rant about today's mainstream music by cutting off their eye lids or gluing them open was very different. It makes one want to capture that Jigglypuff rather than hear it sing. Since as the show and games have gone, if you own it, the Sing effect doesn't effect you anymore.
Overall, another funny parody, excellent work. Only thing of note was the first f in the title looking like it was clipped a bit.
This was pretty good. Seeing as it had to be broken down for various reasons, I'm looking forward to part 9 of this series. Also while watching this I only spotted one error near the end, misspelling better as "beter", aside from that I did not notice anything else needing to be fixed. Great work once again.
No real flow for an abstract flash.
With an abstract art style flash I would hope that you make them smoothly transition from one loop to the next instead of making sudden changes. the two faces interchanging where the closest thing to a smooth transition during the entirety of the flash video.
The animation varied from loop to loop with some looking ot have a decent amount of work in them with others looking like they took as long as five minutes top to draw and put together. The rainbow hand and item along with the two hands and string looked to have the most work with the stringed hands seeming to be where the flash goes back to after showing a different loop.
The music used seemed fitting and abstract. However, could have also used an ambient or house song for this animation rather than a pop sounding piece that you wrote.
Overall, hardly any smooth transitions. Seems to be mostly showing off some loops you have created.
Sorry man,but this was one of my older flash,so I couldn't do a better one.
