Very funny. nice style.
The characters maybe need more the skin to look like clay. Then the would fit perfect in the scenes.

And some sounds would be nice.

Love the look of the scenery. The characters themselves look too 'cg' though, would be nice to see them more stylized, and integrated better with the background. The animation is a little sketchy, I hope you don't mind me being super-critical here, it's a little jerky in places, and for example when the characters run into the bush and then out it doesn't read very well. A scene near the beginning to show the captured soldier would help with the rest of the story - tied up perhaps? And the timing of the editing needs some work... Overall though a very appealing piece, well done!

07 July 2003, 12:13 PM
Realy nice style.
It's great to see people using uncommpon styles. :thumbsup:

As mentioned before, the environment is looking great, the characters a bit too CG.

07 July 2003, 12:41 PM
What a great style! Really refreshing! :beer: I wonder if you could get some kids to narrate over the top, to accentuate the look of the animation? Like:

"A man was tied..." "Soldier" "Yeah, a slodyer was tied up and this nasty man wouldn't let him the slodyer had to run away but the nasty man saw him and ran to catch him again...and then they jumped behind this bush, and then there was this big ROAR! *get the kids to scream here* So they had to run away, but they fell off a cliff, and the soldier grabbed a bit of tree that was sticking out of the cliff and he saved them and they made up and they were friends forever!"

Thanks for all the comment and we really appreaciate it..:thumbsup:

mattmos: Yup, we agree that te animation is a little bit sketchy...and the editing problem that u mention we re already knew that,just dunno how to cut is better (any idea?! ) haha

BladeFX: Hmm...too bout create it more to clay!?

Max Particle: Good suggestion, if we redo or add in maybe will take it as a referrence....thanks

p/s: maybe i will trying to do some "behing the scene" of the charater...then we improve it again...:applause: thanks

07 July 2003, 12:14 PM
lol cool:thumbsup:

great style!

07 July 2003, 02:11 PM
