Just pure awesome. Animation, references, the dragons you picked, all straight A+! And you didn't even put in needless adult/gutter humor? Truly a amazing feat on here. Kudos man.
Nice animation but feels like your trying way too hard to be like hotdiggety (the Ren and Stimpy music, extreme faces, actually I think both you guys owe John K. a major royalty check) but without the comedic timing and productions. Maybe if I saw a little more orignality here I'd give higher but I've seen this done better without cumshots from Ren and Stimpy.
lol @ i'm trying too hard to be like hotdiggedydemon. I assume you think so because its a pony parody ending in .MOV. That was the whole point. It's a parody of his crap, among a whole heap of other stuff. If you think I'm copying him JUST from the examples you listed (the R&S music and "extreme faces"), you could replace his name with like any other flash animator's name. Sure, we all owe John K as a major inspiration in terms of animating (and I have said so, many MANY times), but if you're referring to a royalty check in terms of the music, the songs in the R&S soundtrack were all like royalty free and public domain before the show even existed. It's stock music. That's why, again, like every other flash animator uses it.
Dialogue dragged on for quite a bit without many jokes but some pretty cute parts like, "Oh look at that, an hourglass on my rump! Fancy that." Docs reactions and personality definitely my fav part of the video not being much of a MLP fan. Animation is EXCELLENT! Music was ok. Hope you do more, just work in some breaks in the dialogue and I think you have a pretty good series on your hooves-er-hands ^^
Excellent stuff! Really liked the choice of synths used in this track, you've got really good style to your electronic music :)
Great stuff, dude. Loved the massive pads and has a almost haunting feeling to it! Mind if I ask what kind of synths/vst you used for this track?
Thanks for your review!
to answer your question, I used the PolyKB II VST by XilsLab
Great power and emotion in this. Love whatever string program your using along with the brass. Symphobia/Albion Spitfire? You know how to slowly build up drama and crescendo it with oomph! If I had to nitpick for improvement, the high strings in the first minutes felt too clustered in some parts and the choir near the end felt unnecessary imho. Other then that, great piece, made a follower out of me from one listen. =)
Thanks Tequila! Yeah I'm working on trying to separate the sound of the strings and get a better clearer sound. More realistic too, which is proving hard.
And yeah, strings are:
