You can watch it on newgrounds: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/594240



This is the first animation I considered good enough to submit to the Newgrounds portal.

As an aside, I was quite surprised that this forum is an active place! Here I thought sprite animation was dead and no one was going to bring it back if I didn't, but hey! maybe I'm wrong! Anyway enjoy the movie it is good you will like it.

I was pleasently surprised!! from the looks of it, besides the sprites, you drew everything yourself? Damn. now that's good. you used a few DBZ sounds, people will rape you for that, but damn, very nice. Very smooth. I really enjoyed watching it. you sir are very talented. I even laughed at a few things "hardest head on earth." I couldn't help but laugh XD. this so should have won something.

great job.

I can't believe how entertaining this was. You've got a lot of promise dude, customly drawn backgrounds, super smooth animating, original sprite fights (none of the cliche's like sonic, mario, etc.).

I honestly can't wait to see what you do next!

Thank you for the kind words, all. I actually consider the mouse-drawn background to be a flaw in this movie. Since it doesn't break or get burnt or anything, don't you think it would have looked better all pixelated? But I didn't make it that way because, basically, I can't.

I found this very nice and well put together. the animation was very smooth, and the fact that you drew this was outstanding. Although some parts could use some effects, such as some sword attacks you did and punching, but besides that, it was very great. The sound effects were put to good use, too. The only thing that irritated me were the DBZ sounds but still they were used for good purposes of the animation. Overall, really great.

Or ban you for being an idiot.
This was pretty enjoyable though. Gave me a good solid chuckle.
Only thing that bothered me was some of the effects. i liked them, but some looked a little strange.
Very nice job though.

Hmmm very amusing. I'll give it 8,5/10. I was very good except i was hoping to see more camera movement and angles. But don't mind about it. It's still very good piece of animation.

Very manly indeed! 8D

I'm extremely impressed by the animation. I'm honestly stunned by how fluent it is, considering that you are using rather limited NES FF sprites.

My personal favorite thing about this is the little details that you incorporated in the animation, such as the subtle movements of the sword the Warrior was holding. It just makes the characters more alive! I also really liked how the Warrior climbed the tree. It makes me giggle every time. x3

Good use of squash and stretch, nice effect with the sword swinging, and good physics too! The humor and friendship-on-the-side story was definitely the icing on the cake! The pacing was alright, but sometimes I thought that it dragged out a bit too long (but that's just me). Yea, the hand-drawn stuff does seem awkward with the sprites sometimes, but it works!

Overall, great job! I can't wait to see more of your work!

It's really good and refreshing to see some creative people messing around with sprites again, I thought there was only a few folks left who were doing that but fortunately it seems I was wrong.

Yeah, there we go with that again.
Allow me to defend for a minute this attitude. Let's take the phrase "You actually didn't waste my time." One can passively-aggressively and indirectly say that the tone of this sentence is inappropriate for whatever reason, but aside from trivialities like that, it is quite a sensible thing to say. The prior probability of someone who has never posted anything before actually making something watchable is so low as to almost not be worth considering. So it is entirely sensible to be surprised when it happens, even though it is going to happen multiple times. In the same way, you can't expect any individual person to win the lottery, you can expect that *someone* who plays the lottery will, even if it won't be Mortimer Q. Snodgrass, whom you met earlier and tried to convince not to buy the lottery (and this was the only time something like this happened). It's the same way: most animations will be bad / wastes of time, so it's surprising when any given individual one isn't, even though you expect that eventually one will not be a waste of time. The main difference is that it's a smaller scale.

Now, how about, "I thought there was only a few folks left who were doing that but fortunately it seems I was wrong."? Again, if the problem is the tone, then whatever. But I myself gave the same denotational sentiment in the OP of this thread: I was surprised that there's an active community of sprite animators. Why should the active community of sprite animators not be surprised that someone outside it is doing decent sprite animation?
