The Nine Lives of Claw Pilot The Nine Lives of Claw Pilot

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Glad to see this come together after a successful Kickstarter campaign! The final style isn't what I expected from the initial vis dev, but it's still nice to see a proof of concept teaser. Also neat that Jim Cummings was the voice of Naz-T!

Classy

This had me thinking 'Tex Avery' and 'Chuck Jones' from beginning to end. Pacing, timing, and monologue.. all superb. I really hope to see more.



Arthur's Pie Trouble Arthur's Pie Trouble

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Awesome

I really enjoyed the character designs and animation. It's refreshing to find some quality flash submissions now and then. Can't help but notice some Phillips-inspired qualities, which is actually a great thing to emulate. (but I'm sure you've read that before)
Well done. I can't wait to see what more you have brewing.

Only requiring use of the Spacebar to play is great.

Fun puzzles and engaging. Well done!

Not bad

In the main tutorial, you could have made a few transitional animations to make following certain instructional segments just that much easier.

One petty thing I'm suggesting for sound tracks for animations is selecting 'sync-steaming'. For little loops where sound is secondary, yeah, 'event' works just fine..

I liked how you showed the shapes you use as the base for assembling a character or object. Aware of basic shapes for complex forms is a start to believable dimension and epic animation.

Color remnants, pixelation, and hard erasures

Why are there color remnants near the corner of the arm and bikini bottom? And the bikini itself has whirling pixelation like it was filtered and saved as a .gif optimized for the web at 60%
And the hair looks like a wig.. The colors don't match the rest of the picture. It's like a bad render on a bad sci-fi movie made for television.
The body also looks a bit 'glued' at the ribcage from two different poses because of the protruding shapes the lower half is emphasizing. I think it's because you didn't illustrate a pinch in the back it looks weird.

The bikini bottom area also has really REALLY hard erasure marks. Surface reminds me of those craters you make in the Worms Armageddon series, all those 'u's and such.

It just looks like you doctored up a good painting you might have done with photoshop filters and effects. You don't need to blur your overall picture (which is what I see), let the painterly lines show through, that's what makes paintings awesome.

You've improved quite a bit from your last pictures, I'm anxious to see what you'll do next =)
