The Past // Batman : The Droppings
All in all, as an exercise in animation, I'm very happy. In retrospect, I took on a little too much (in terms of fbf, shading, backgrounds, etc.), while ultimately spending less time refining the actual content. I won't apologize for the fart jokes, that's an issue of taste (or tastelessness), though even those gags weren't pulled off in the best way. I have a hard time explaining the process on this flash, but it basically comes down to "it got away from me, like a fish flailing out of my hands." The more I invested, the more I wanted to shape it, the more it came slipping out of my hands.
That said, I don't think Brock's voice and Kami's art were ill-used, there was a lot of energy and time invested in it, and for those who did enjoy it, they seemed to enjoy it quite it bit. All in all it got some good face-time thanks to Tom and NG and Brock and Ego on YT, and I hope it helped promote the other folks who made this flash possible (Kami, Devastus, and Brock ... not that he needs it :P)
I'm also curious what the traffic stats were on NG, as I tried to siphon some YT viewers into checking it out here for additional Flash-Only additional content. If it proved to boost the numbers even a little, I'm certainly tempted to up the ante on "additional Newgrounds exclusive content".
ALSO, I've been having a great time watching DeathInk draw stuff. Dude, you are so talented.
The Present // Sonic toon
Already well under way, this toon was initially one gag and has already begun to grow like a fungus. I won't be letting this one get out of hand. I'll also be focusing a lot more on the line-art quality. Probably less inbetween frames, but more keyframe poses. Keeping this one simple, so I can focus on a solid product while utilizing the process to really learn.
I'll keep ya'll posted. Long live Newgrounds.
