I enjoyed the animation, but maybe you can do a little more frame by frame to smooth it out? The legs in the beginning felt awkward, because their motions were a little stiff and robot-like. I feel like framing that out may have been beneficial instead of what you have in there now (I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you just tweened it?) The other parts seem alright, but that close up on the legs is right in the beginning and really caught my eye before I got into the animation.
The art style is pretty well constructed, and I think it turned out pretty solid. The backgrounds are simple enough, but well designed. I think that helps with the still frame images a lot, and is probably the strongest part of the piece. The animation may be simple and repetitive and have a few minor problems, but the designs are solid, and I think that may in part be because the original was mostly design with limited animation. Either way, your choices for backgrounds and foregrounds, as well as the character designs and styles, worked out very well.
I'm also not upset about it being repetitive at all, I've seen the source material I get what you wanted to do with your parody. Not too concerned with the choice to make it so sexual either, there was plenty going on besides that.
Grats on your first front page, I'm watching out for new stuff from you.
My stuff isn't actually tweened but its close enough, all my characters are symboled for each limb and drawn at most angles, but when I animate I still move the symbols by hand. I don't actually use the tween tool. It was my second time doing it this way so I guess I do have a way to go before it looks really good, or rather I should spend more time making sure everything looks right, since the knee thing slipped right past me. I'll keep an eye out on those leg twitches next time haha.
Thank you for the grats and the compliments on my art style, I'm self taught (I bet most people are these days) so it means a lot when someone can appreciate what I'm doing.
It was pretty good.
The art was good, the animation was good, but it looks like you messed up some of the lip sync. The art was clean and looked interesting to the eye, the animation was done well and i enjoyed watching the movements. It was all very fluid except for the lip sync. Your style of drawing mouths is fine, but practice that a bit more and you'll be much more impressive as an animator.
I'm not trying to be mean, I enjoyed it, honestly. I'm just trying to help.
See the comments, dude.
Financial advice. Damnnnnnn
Its not entirely frame by frame. There's quite a few looping movie clips actually. Including the faceless crowd walking. The guy probably shouldn't take that girl back either if she ditched him for a big buff dude. She needs to learn a lesson. Smack her or something.
Overall, the animation was decent I suppose and I watched it and understood what you were going for, but in my opinion the ending felt wrong.
That was quite witty and smart humor. Better than some of your previous works, but I feel you can still improve quite a bit.
Looking forward to more of your animations.
P.S. HTC Evo 4G FTW (Google Phone) :D
Good animation overall.
I don't mean to be critical, but I think your animations would benefit greatly from more action. The santa claus scene seemed to be missing something, and his head bob was unnatural. Several other scenes felt the same way, but I really like your animation overall. I hope you take this as positive reinforcement
I liked it.
5/5 10/10, I love the reused characters from Bytesize
Not nearly as good as your other stuff. This seemed to not have any real jokes, but random nonsense. At least your other parodies have observational humor.
Very psyched for this.
First of all, I noticed alot of harsh reviews by people who don't know about this or are just confused. There are two meat boy games already on NG guys!
As for the animation, it was very simple, yet pretty in its own way. I love the characters, and I lol'd at Dr. Fetus' face when it said nobody loves him. Also Meat Boy and Bandage Girl are a cute couple. I can't wait to play it man
Well at first I was like >:|
But then I lol'd
Thanks, glad I made you laugh!
