(*is21yearsoldnow*) But it's all coming back to me. Maybe it's just like riding a bike. Keep up the awesome work. :]

IM getting the beach ball with the word play. I have clicked on the beachball, on the word. I had to manually start it instead of just clicking play. i read on an earlier comment they had the same thing
And by the way I did end up watching it and it was really good. Needs work on the voice acting a tad though....
Hmm that's kind of odd..maybe a browser issue? I'm not sure what else to tell you :\ If it comes up again then I'll see if I can't figure out the problem, but I'm glad you did get to see it in the end!
Hey there, I was just looking through my mssages and saw this in my inbox (because I watch Flanimate). I never usually check out the vids but this one caught my eye.
Your art (esp. in the comic) is nice and clean, and I love the precise lines.
I felt that much of the dialogue could be scripted out and replaced by action, or sufficient body language. Let the audience figure out what is happening, then it's your duty to make your comic/flash flow clearly and cleanly.
I know that it's a Pokemon battle, and trainers have to dish out commands. Imo, I think what makes the best entry is when participants focus on the character development instead of the pokemon battle. You had a lot of character interaction at the beginning, which is good, it could've been better if it were 'shown not told'. It's a hard task, but it brings so much more to the plate.
I also suggest making your comics colored to match the Flash clip (or make the Flash clip greyscale to match the comic)--it just keeps things consistent.
But I do love the animated text "sfx"-- what a great idea! Just don't put too much in one page, because it distracts from the comic itself.
That's my long two cents (I've never written such a long review before). And if I come off as arrogant, I do apologize--it's hard to articulte the proper emotion through the internet--but I assure you that I only want to see the best progress from you.
Woo this is a long one! Good god, I'm gonna try and hit all the topics you mentioned but if I miss some I hope you can forgive me;;;
One thing I should definitely mention now is that the majority of the flashes I complete and submit are done on a deadline that I tend fail to pay attention to and thus I fail to give myself enough time to create something incredible worthwhile.
As I mentioned in my artist's comments, there are stale scenes (MANY) stale scenes in this submission, as my deadline for this contest sorta caught up with me.
The color comic suggestion I wholeheartedly agree with you on, but once again, I was on a deadline that didn't allow me the time to do such things. The SFX animation bulkening up the page did worry me a bit too, I did try to downplay it in some scenes or just make the words small, but then it would fail to have the effect I wanted. It's hard to notice, but even popular manga/comics have these SFX CLUTTERED on their pages. Just a matter of placing I suppose, but then again, this was my first time doing something like this so I can only learn by doing!
Thanks again for you 2 cents! It's very much appreciated man really! ' v ' b
Wow, this was really cool. It was really worth watching and reading it. I really liked the plot and the idea about commanding the Pokemon with dancing. Geat job, I'll be rooting for you. Good luck for this round! <3
