Well im new to this site and to be honest im kinda nervous about the whole process, i usually keep all my animations on my other site on Deviant art. And one of my friends kept hassling me to put them on newgrounds, well i decided to do just that and post all my animations on here! well... not all, just the really good ones, as of now im not really working on animating as school is chewing up all my time, bu i do however have to make two animations for design, so you should all see some brand spanking new animations from me before the end of the year, trust me i'll make them good for you. In the meantime i'll post some of my older animations that i believe are good enough to be up here.

The kind of stuff you can expect from me before the end of the year will be three large scale projects, that's right, i'll be animating only qood quality stAff!
1: A short intro to one of my stories, like a short ad for a movie, it will be fully animated to the start of whisper 2000 by evanescence, it sounds quite epic :P
2: A short intro to a made up game that features students and teachers in a duel for power to rid the evil librarian from her thrown of skulls and dictionaries!
3: A series of short animations that will be in a skit show, hope you all enjoy those :)

there are many more animations i am 'planning' to make, buuuuut they might never see the light of day as im lazy and i usually procrastinate a lot. XD

sounds good

just don't underestimate the importance of good icon, description and stuff when uploading here

a lot of voters tend to judge entries on superficial aspects like that

also, I recommend optimizing as much as possible. It won't help the score, but your submission will receive more views, due to the fact that more people are willing to download a smaller file size.

The art was simple (not necessarily a bad thing), but the animation was pretty smooth

I also recommend sound effects, but make them GOOD; otherwise, it will only hurt your score.

http://www.findsounds.com/ is the best place to find sound effects

http://www.freesound.org/ is pretty nice and has some unusual sounds hard to find elsewhere

http://www.grsites.com/sounds/ is alright, but the selection is limited

Avoid places like sounddogs.com if possible because the sound effects there are low quality, but it also has the largest selection available; so, you may need to look there if the other places don't have anything

Sandwich91 responds:

thanks :) i'll take that into account, i myself have a SFX library on my laptop, but im not sure if they're what you call good quality sound effects, i'll definitely do that to my next animations (the new new ones that is) to help, and i'll try and opomise everything including the icons to bring more people in

oh and the simple art was intentional, the background would have been my fault and i'll accept that, but the characters themselves and the objects they used was intentional in the stereotypes animation, i usually do a much more complex style of animation and i was looking for a change and so i made that animation and made it as cartoony as possible :3 thanks again for the comment
