hey guys so the first of my animation is done minus the voice acting. I figured that as soon as the second installment is complete then I will give both this one and the next one dialog.

ok well this was a real challenge for me. I am just an amateur artist who wants to tell a story and I am glad to finally be doing that.
but I struggled a lot with many aspects while doing this. So any tips or constructive advice on what I can do to make it better is extremely welcoming.

Also a big thank you to Stephanie Young who let me use her music. the link at the end of the animation will take you to the original song.

Xullrae is pint size female Drow/ killing machine belongs to my awesome friend :iconxullraezauviir:
Hazalin the over sized marshmallow/shapeshifter belongs to me.
the bandits belong in jail

p.s. I tried to keep violence at a minimum. let me know if I should put a warning on this cheers kiddies.

Quite an episode. I like your animation and film making. Good luck getting voice actors. I've never had any luck with that. I have to use computer voices for my characters.

thanx buddy.  actually I did get voice actors for this.  I made a mistake and submitted the wrong one.  I was suppose to put the finished one there.  My mistake.  Also you may have some luck getting voice actors if you ask around on da or even Newgrounds.  I can give you the profile page of the ones I use but I commission them so they are not free but there are alot of people who would do it for free aswell.

Can you send me some information on what the going rate is for a voice actor?

Thanks. It is as I guessed too expensive for me to really afford on a regular basis for my productions. I used synthetic voices and these are not the best. I tried to filter my own voice but I can get the program that I bought to do this to work.

well it is good that you can use your own voice.  I hate the sound of my own voice that is why I turn it into a chipmonk sound if I ever use it lol

You have put a lot of creativity into this, I really like the tool that Xullrae used to see the secret inscription in the rock. One thing that makes an intro stand out is having the right amount of drama and creativity to make it interesting. Attention to detail is critical in the beginning parts for sure.

Honestly I thought that the setting needed more frames in the beginning when the camera is panning down to the character. It's seems a bit jumpy. And the reason I mention that is because when the picture is kind of jumpy it tends to take away from the overall quality, and can give the viewer the wrong type of anticipation.

This all I'll mention for now, since I haven't seen all the scenes yet, then I'll try to give you an overall, review. I really think you've got a knack for animation Christine, I can' see it in the different scenes of this flick. Keep up the good work. :)

Hey there Comethius yes you are right, the animation was very jumpy. I think it could be also due to very big and heavy graphics I was using. I am going to make the backgrounds smaller in future by cropping out parts that I don't need.

I know it is late buddy but Merry Christmas and happy new year. I hope that the new year brings you heaps of artistic inspiration and imagination take care :hug:

You see He is by no means a magic user and his clothes aren't magical and they don't transform when he does so I tried to make something that both he and his horsey self might wear. pretty suss I know, but it is the best thing I can come up with for now lol. hee hee. oh and thanx buddy. My friend is very talented. I will no doubt be using her again in future. . . .if she is ok with it lol

This is awesome! You're getting better and better. Also as for the violence thingy, DON'T EVER LET CENSORSHIP GET IN THE WAY! If you want more violence in the flash, then throw a warning up and be done with it. Also if I'm to voice this or any part of it lol you'll have to give me the phonetic of the names lol.

mmmm marshmallow....yummy << >> lol!!!!! so for my own notes, the size ref chart in the beginning....does that mean Black Addel and Hazalin's horse form are the same height? (I'd been wondering in any case lol) and you say you're an amateur but these enthrall me and mesmerize me with the detail and fluidity to them! I think they're amazing hun! :D

littlegoblet Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012
lol thanxies buddy. Yeah Hazalin is just a big softy. I used a model of the one horse for all horses. I hadn't realy thought of it before but I think that real horses are bigger and stronger then Hazalin. hope that helps buddy, but if you do them the same size for the pic you are doing for me that that is perfectly ok too.

and thanx for that big complement at the end means everything to me buddy :hug:

mm I think I can work with that lol...I'll try to make Hazalin's side a slightly smaller horse if I can make it work without looking too "off" lol!!! and yeah Hazalin just seems very huggable lol!!!! Ira's handsome enough certainly but seems a lil impish at times ;P

I mean what I say hun! ;) :hug: I love your art!

I think this is coming along nicely. :giggle: I don't think it needs a violence thing yet. It was shown off screen. But if you show violence like a punch to the face, best to put it on just to be safe. :nod:

I think Hazelin's capture scene was masterfully done! :clap:

The art itself is richly colored and visually lovely. The music of your friend, sets the tone.

I love it so far, don't know any voice actor's though I'm sorry. But I'm sure whoever you will choose will be great. :w00t:

Here to hoping that the second installment will be quicker lol. I got some realy neat voice actors lined up but I still think I need a lower female voice for Xull.
Steff is a great musician. I pick on her the most when looking for music. lol thanx buddy :hug:

gasp lol the galloping horses was so hard to do, but I will admit that doing them side on was tonnes easier then front on. I tried about four times. the last time I said that is it Im done lol glad you like it buddy. Thanks for letting me use your music. Hope I did it justice.
