Disgaea: Episode 3 Disgaea: Episode 3

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Copy and paste, shame...

I think it's very weak how you have just copied and pasted all the drawings from the website - 'Creativeuncut' - You could have at the least redrew the drawings, or even traced. But to just copy and paste it....

Don't get me wrong though I did like the film and I'm a little bit of a fan of Disgaea. But I think you should try drawing them next time..


MaKd responds:

The pictures actually came frm the official art book. Besides, that Creativecut thing your talking about doesn't have every backround and character emotion.

Good, keep at it

This was quite a good claymation, I tend to have a soft spot for claymation, having made a few myself ^_^
I think if you keep doing this you will become very good at it, give it another 2 or so submissions and I feel you could get in the high 3's to low 4 scores.
I would give this a 4/5 but i'm going to give it 5/5 as I feel a few people have reviewed this a bit too harshly.
One qestion - What program did you create this in? It was a bit pixilated, I think you should look into the process of compression more, it can really make or break a stop-motion animation.
Well done, and i hope to see more :)

Renaissance Renaissance

Rated 5 / 5 stars

What more can i say?

No much else I can say that I haven't already said when you posted this on Deviant Art, thought it would be nice to show support here too though :)
So again i'll say - simply amazing work, I really mean it. You've really developed a unique style, especially with your backgrounds.
A Story you might find interesting - When I watched this at college, a friend came over and asked "Bloody hell Alex! Did you make that?" to which is replied "Nope", he gave a sigh of relief and said "Oh I was going to say! Thats a bit too bloody good for something you could ever make!'. Hehe, I just thought you might like to know that ^_^
So Congrats on making something bloody good. I'll look forward to any more projects you wish to make in the future.
Take care.

Man, thank you again Paper_SFX, your opinion means alot to me. I didnt put you in the special thanks for nothing ^^.
By the way, i think its bullshit what your friend said. Im serious, u are much better than me. You only just started animating and you already did amazing stuff. Look at my first movie (short skirt) and compare it to yours.

Again thank you very much for the support and if you ever need help with flash or anything else, you can always ask me

Great start

This was a real nice animation, which is clear you have put lots of effort into. It just gets let down by minor things I think have been already mentioned. - The story (what was given to us) was a bit on the "Oh it's one of those storylines...again" genre ^_^.
Also the walking looked really stiff at times.
But those minor things aside, it is definatly worth a look at.

A trademark AloneInTheDark movie

I really like the colouring and sketchy outines you created for this animation, it gives it a great original touch to it.
I noticed that you seemed to use a few more frame-by-frame techniques in this animation, which is always a bonus.
There were also a few funny moments (even though I don't think I was supposed to laugh!) when the robot/man's head got bent back from having a stone thrown at it. I guess that was just mean to laught at that :).

Overall it was a very nice animation, my only complaint would be about the mechanical noises the robot/man made; I think it maybe shouldn't have been as loud.

I give this a 5/5


AloneInTheDark responds:

Thanks SFX! Indeed there were a few more frame by frame scenes in this one. And some dark humor. I like combining serious stuff with a little humor.
I know the mechanical sounds may be a little bit too loud yes. Perhaps i should have changed that.
Thanks for the great review and take care pal!


The Enemy Within (old) The Enemy Within (old)

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good Animation, but has flaws

I certainly admire the amount of effort you put into making this. Although the story wasn't gripping by any means, and often it was hard to see what was going on, as the sprites were very close to the screen.
The music was very good, you picked some good choices to suit each mood; no voices though!
I didn't like the way you copied how it goes into a view of 3D mario, like that seen in the animation "Mario Reloaded".
Overall this was quite a good animation, but I would have liked it better if you had spent as much time as you did on the animation, working on the story.
4/5

Notebook Love Notebook Love

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I really liked this

This was a pritty cool animation, great little sketches - I especially liked the way you could still see a faint outline of the drawing that was rubbed out, I thought that was a great touch.
Good job 4/5.
Did you create that music yourself by the way?


Solation responds:

Thanks for the review. To answer your question, I did create the music. You can listen to more of it at www.acidplanet.com/jon_gamboa

I liked it

This was a pritty cool animation, although i'm not sure why it was such a big file size? was it all drawn in flash?
Anyway, nice animation, But, i find it annoying when people do the white slash across the screen thing - just seems like an easy way out of animating a fight ;)
I gave this 4/5


jb-cubed3 responds:

Hi Paper_SFX,

Thanks for your score. :)

1) why it was such a big file size? was it all drawn in flash?

It was, but I think because the graphics really outstrech the canvas and there are some quite complex scenes within it is why the size is pretty huge.

2)white slash across the screen thing -just seems like an easy way out of animating a fight ;)

hehe! ;) don't tell anyone!

Amazing

This possibly one of the best flash animations that I have seen on this site, It should have scored alot higher.
