This is the closest thing to what a group of guy friends would actually say and do. Well done!
And also this came out just about the time I realized I hated musicians who scale way too much.
This is the Newgrounds I know and love. I'm glad that it still has these kinds of silly animations. Well done!
This was pretty well done. There were some twists that I honestly did not see coming. Overall, it was cute, saddening, and charming.
One final thought. This should probably be under M instead of A. A usually means excessive nudity and explicit sexual content. Sure, there was a porno, but we barely saw anything, and Nene was always covered.
~Better choice of sounds.
~Varying art styles coming together.
This was well worth the wait! Congrats on Daily 1st and probably soon to be Front Page! You guys did a phenomenal job!
Thanks Pelo my boi.
I'm glad to see the general consensus is that there are far less annoying sounds this time around. I'm not sure what makes people consider them annoying. That sort of thing never bothers me. I don't even get a shiver from nails on a chalkboard.
Just wow! I must say, this is one heck of an animation here! Fast paced, very funny, unexpected punchlines, very smooth animating...hot dog, man, this is amazing! Great job!
~Very smooth animation.
~Good audio quality.
~A mildly confusing ending (well, the guy at least).
I think this was simple, cute, and funny all at the same time. Short, sweet, to the point...just the way I like it!
And dude, I wish my goldfish could've granted me three wishes!
Amazing Piece of Work
Like other animations, this one stands out because of its gritty style that masks a real world meaning, but it's also quite charming at the same time.
When I first watched this, I missed the meaning completely and actually mistook it for a comedy. However, once the mother pig gave up her child I realized I couldn't have been more wrong.
What makes this animation charming is the way you animate: Pig N (the pig we focus on), the two pigs playing Battleships, the man behind the desk, the quick (and sometimes silly) sound effects, and the very bizarre world they live in. These do good to make the film a little less grim. In fact, when we first see Pig N move around, that's what made me mistake this for a comedy.
In regards to the mother pig giving up her child, I've noticed that people seemed to hate the scene (and of course, those are most of the reviews you respond to). Thinking on it some, I don't think the death of the young one is the worst (read "horrible, horrifying") part of that scene, but rather how quickly she gets over the sorrow and guilt she has so she can get a quick fix. I'm not criticizing you putting it in there, but rather I'm saying you nailed that issue perfectly.
I get that the man behind the desk is supposed to symbolize the drug lords and how he can pull the strings of the pigs, but I don't understand why he wants to eat the pigs. For all I know, it could be a little extra something you put in as a filler, but I doubt that. Could it be showing how drug dealers will kill and dispose of the bodies of those who tried to screw them? (see also the long note on the receipt...holy shit, that was grim)
In the end, this is a great piece with a great meaning.
He eats the pigs because he's a hungry fella. Also, if he's giving the pigs coins it would be plain silly if they paid him with money. No, in this world the drug dealer craves only pork.
At first I thought the story would be about Piconjo, and then I thought it was about a character you completely made up. I was wrong on both ends.
Simply put, the story telling was very well done; we see a different side of Pico, the way his mother cares for them both, and the way Peter idolizes his older brother is very heartwarming. The ending twist was somewhat predictable, but at the same time a good surprise (and quite a good back story to another character on this site). Plus the music complimented the whole thing very well.
My only complaint was Pico's voice. Oney has a great voice, but I personally think he went a little over the top for this. But that's just me.
Overall, I'm glad I watched this, and I congratulate you on a job well done.
~Cute in its own way.
~A little short.
~Sound quality is poor.
Yeah, so what if you're trying to spread the word of God? If people can spread the word against Him, why can't others share their love? Please note, I'm not religious in the slightest, but I find it hypocritical when a person who openly declares one thing gets butthurt when his opponent says the other in a humble way.
Regardless, cute animation, but the sound quality could have been better.
That was amazing! Though the animation style was cartoony, it flowed very well, matched the essence of the song, incredibly smooth, and the lip syncing was virtually perfect.
The right song with the right animation makes a phenomenal Flash. Props.
Glad you enjoyed it!
