So looking forward to this
The style for the characters is very similiar to Van Harkan's Halo animation but that still doesn't discourage me from the fact that a lot of the scenes along with the character detail, props and settings look impressive enough.
Basing it on the perspective of the marines is a nice change from all the Halo animations which focus too much on the Spartans and their successors (and I'm one to talk lol). I'm eager to see how this pans out and hope it'll encourage more people to think outside the box when it comes to making Halo animations.
Okay while I have a lot of repsect for you, I have to say that this trend that everyone seems to be taking up, just doesn't make sense to me. If it was about trying to tell stories with the use of really simple characters and focussing more on vocal talent then that I can understand. But I just don't understand why people are throwing ten scores at this and every other animation like this.
But then again I have no right to tell people how or what they should vote on, so I'm gonna leave it at that.
Porch monkey for life (I'm taking it back)
I love the movies of Kevin Smith and this reminded me of how good the material from his movies is. You did a good job with the lip synching and I liked the expressions you used for the characters (even though I would have preferred to have seen animated versions of Dante and Randal).
Also I would say that I am in agreement with omegared in that you should try to write and animate you own material (although I'm one to talk since I haven't done anything original yet).
If I may ask one question though, did you do this as a test or just for shits n giggles? (I haven't checked your other flash at this point in time)
Overall good job and keep at it and hopefully you'll make something that's ten times better.
Oh and Snoogins
It was mostly a test to see if I could make a well made animation with no outlines (vectored) and still have a smooth animation
thanks for the review and Snoogins
