Spectator Entry: [link]

*hysterical breathing and faints*

Okay, where do I start?

This round is versus :icontousebothsyllables: who is an awesome artist and friend. I wanted to give it my all this round, and focused more on the interaction between Kila and Nicholas than just pointless fighting. So it's not action-packed, but you can tell I had good fun working on this. (There are easter eggs hidden throughout the animation and comics. I can't remember them all since it took me so long to make. Some are in plain sight, others are hidden and are usually just stupid comments xD).

Sadly, I had planned a pretty big Easter egg. It was that Nicholas would call Kila a rat, and they would exchange similar dialogue to that of Great Mouse Detective. (You know, the one where Bartholomew calls Rattigan a rat during his song), but I didn't have time for it (or a few other scenes)--heck, one of the comic sections is in black and white!

I never thought I'd ever finish this. I have never been so grateful for extensions I think in my life. I started it ASAP, and I was going to be able to finish it a week before the original deadline...then crap happened. No joke, it was internship month, my cat died, working on other animations for class, Calculus, life, etc. I seriously can't believe all this happened in during the making of this round, especially the second thing, it feels like it's been forever, but I'll change the topic before I start getting all mopey again. Other than that, I had fun making this. I had stopped working on it, and continued it two weeks ago (so there's a change in style sometimes. My style changes with my mood :shrug: ) At least I don't think it's entirely bad. Don't think this is a pity-rant, NO WAY MAN, I'm just sharing one of life's many adventures.

Also, I'm sorry if some audio suddenly starts appearing where it shouldn't. I have NO idea what happened to it, but the audio began being mixed up. I placed them all in symbols to control their activation, but sometimes they get a little mischievous.

Anyway, hope you all like it. Feel free to drop by some suggestions. I'll upload a better cover art later, but I'm tired of seeing this file, I'm going to go work on my own things.

...or this week's comic pages...didn't have a chance to make them. ._.

Before I forget, I am so grateful for both :icontousebothsyllables: and :iconwalker-j: for providing the voices of the characters. Walker really can handle my voice nagging, and will do as many takes as possible while Lani (that's what I call her) helped me make something that is competing against her. You guys are so awesome, thank you, thank you! ;v;

Ooooh, you're competing against Lani? That's so awesome! 8D
I bet you two had loads of fun with this. ^^
Very nice job on your entry. Hooray for seeing Kila animated (and awesomely voiced by Lani herself) and for using FLCL music for the running-away scene. :XD:

Goodness, you did a lot of work D: kudos to you, especially in light of all that you had to go through. I really liked the voices (not so much the quality at times, but I understand the complications where that's concerned |D). It's funny how Nicholas only winds up in fights because he says or does something out of some trivial oversight XD

ONE THING I must critique for your own good is TIMING. well, let me reword that...

PACING.

everything was awesome but the pacing. Which was only a little off. In the animated parts I mean. I just felt like they went waaaaay fast between individual actions and scene changes. Perhaps not so much in scenes where there is a lot of standstill, but definitely between scenes of motion. And at times it conflicts with the voice acting I think.
I'm not sure how to go about improving though <XD I would just watch a lot of cartoons and try to imitate their pacing, or improve on theirs if I thought something was too fast. Honestly this entry was still awesome, so yeah.

That said... ELO, yes. <3

Thanks! Yeah, Nick is just oblivious of his idiocy.

I thought the same thing, but the problem was that since the audio was screwy for some weird reason, working on the frames would only make some things worse at some points. I tried then editing the audio with After Effects, and I couldn't figure it out...so I thought "screw it, I'll leave it like that". : |

YES!

Heck yea! :D I'm an U-P fan. xD I want to learn animation, so when I saw that he did his OCT rounds in Flash, I was inspired immediately. :iconofcourseplz:

OuO you are? Who is your fav character from his animations. (not directly characters from him)

But i mostly like Chimbley and climber |D;

It inspires me so much >:U

I pretty much winged it. I read as many tutorials as I could and watched videos, but practice is the best thing I can suggest. I can link you up with some of the ones that really helped me (plus some books, if you're interested :3)

'v' Yes! I like how U-P interpreted Chimbley, but the way the creator made the live action video made me like the character more. xD Other than that, I like the 3 OC's here's shown so far. Huitzi is hilarious, and I like Karl too, but some people kind of ruined the character for me. :\

And I am so sorry to hear what you've been through D: Incredible that you were still able to do such an amazing job!!

I'm afraid my entry will need to be a written one... so you can basically enjoy your victory. So sorry I couldn't do more- I will probably make a comic out of it after the round ends just for you :P

Oh my gosh, the faces Nicholas makes are great! xD I was so worried you weren't going to get this in on time, and i'm sorry for everything that happened. But i'm really happy you got it in and i'm just as jealous as ever over your awesome flash and comic skills!

Seeing Gabe in there was such a treat, but i've got to say I think my favorite parts were Kila's voice and the faces Nic makes~ He's such a cuite. Anyways, congrats on getting it in and good luck this round!
