Excellent art styles!
I'm afraid I don't have much to add to the wave of positive feedback this animation has already received. My favorite was the fairly odd parents, mainly because the eye and eyebrow movemonts mimicked the show's style so well it felt, if only for a moment, like I was watching the show.
The music was really awesome, too! I know you credited "coova" as the song source, but if you could include the link to the song itself somewhere in the description it would be appreciated. I really like that song...
I don't know what to suggest for your final animation; I feel that many great styles have already been suggested. I would suggest making the character become a robot, similar in style to the robots in "Tarboy".
Another idea, if it hasn't been suggested yet, would be to use a pokemon.
The music was downloaded from the 8bitcollective website, which is now dead. If I could find a link, I would, but I haven't found one yet. Just search "Reformat The Planet by Coova", see what you can find
I loved the animation, and although the story was simplistic, I still liked it. The Bitey-ness of the cartoon comes from the main character, who strongly resembles Bitey. His movement and the environment are different from Bitey; Bitey moves fast and tends to avoid trees, while this character uses them to build momentum, propelling him around. The environment is a little less alien compared to Brackenwood, which is nice, too.
Breaking down the story, the only 'alien' other than the main character was the tree trunk flower. It seems that the main character disrupts the balance of nature, and the alien plant corrects it. I might be poking at something that isn't there, but that's just what I see here.
A very well done cartoon.
That's a cool perspective on it, i never thought about it like that. Good stuff man. Thanks for the great review!
The great and interesting way in which this was directed made this video stand out. I can't stop watching it. The facial expressions are very well made, and the quote at the end, "don't miss a lifetime of happiness for a moment of indulgence" is my new phrase on my userpage. The animation style was very effective and the animation was great. Last, but certainly not least, the content and message was full of meaning. I know many people who smoke; some that are trying to quit and some who aren't. As I write this I've watched this video five times, and I don't intend to stop anytime soon.
"...for a moment of indulgence." Wow I just checked it! It's an honor. It's not easy to quit smoking but remember it only gets harder with time and so do the consequences. Glad you liked the simple animation style and the content (which to me is always more important) Thanks for the great detailed review :)
Best. Easter egg. Ever.
The animation and art were nice, and the song was funny. I see no reason to give this anything less than a 10.
The easter egg alone deserves a 10/10
