Disclaimer: I do not own Happy tree friends. It belongs to Mondo Media and its characters are also owned by Mondomedia. Also, Sweet lullaby are owned and are copyrights of :iconalice2080: and :iconshivita: and that all credit referring to sweet lullaby should go to them.

When Shivita gives me the green light for creating a Sweet Lullaby animation (i asked), I started to think: This is probably gonna be one very difficult animation. So before i start tackling the real one, i instead created this little animation for reviewing purposes, i guess...

This animation marks a many firsts for me. First animation to use music, first to use extensive amount of side body views and smooth transitions, first to be based on a fanfic, and first to be completed in under 1 week.

I have to say, i'm kinda... disappointed with the end results. Lots of flaws here and there, and many lags. I have to blame this to time factor. Ya see, i can only use this flash capable computer for 3 days so i got this completed in 2.5 days... Results??? Not so good, it looks kinda... unpolished. My apologies for the creators and audiences if this is subpar.

Oh. And i forget a few inaccuracies in the clip. It is based on page 5,6,7 from the comic. Flaws include me using conifers instead of decideous trees, wrong facing direction, and many others. Once again, i owe an apology.

Oh well, i just hope you'll enjoy this just as i enjoy creating it. Comments, Reviews, Critiques and Jeers are most welcome!!! I need to improve on my animating skills.

Music is from the game Praetorians.

Ah, here is the link for the full orchestra animation!

*Shrugs* I will proudly admit it mate, I'm not a good animator. But it would be good mister, if you could specify which and what part that I'm terrible at, so that i can improve and strive to be a better one :)

What's the big deal you just can't animate well just because your not prepared.
You should just animate like Zolarc3005, nothing's right or wrong you should just animate like he does

Hmmm... When you're starting to compare, of course we could have a little discussion here... I would like to ask you this before proceeding: Do you know the 5 aspects of animation? It is best to evaluate if you have knowledge in this matter. If you don't, please kindly allow me to explain it to you.

By the way, this animation you're commenting at is already 1 year ago, thus irrelevant to my kind of animations right now.

Hehehehehe! Its no problem actually. I got it memorised and applied in my new animations. Just to show you that I'm actually prepared for this kind of task :)

Here are the 5 aspects

1. Graphics: The mainstreeam audience knows about this. The easiest to get right, graphics refers to the aesthetics of animation. Now as you've mentioned Zolrac a few times before, I'll use his animations as a benchmark here: His graphics are excellent, very excellent.

2. Entity Dynamics: This is the most important part of animation: smooth movements with dynamics applied in the animation. To get this, you must be good with natural movements as well as relying less on camera tricks. Characters have to always keep themselves on the move. Back to Zolrac, this is Zolrac's main weakness: Lack of fluidity, with overwhelmingly static characters instead.

3. Plot: A good animation must have a good plot, a story that actually links everything and able to tell something. Zolrac's plot? Just typical, stereotypical military HTFs...

4. Character Personality: Funny? Coward? Curious? Neurotic? Characters have to have a personality lest they will be only a useless empty shell that only appears and go without leaving an impression.. Now as for Zolrac's, can you specify Fang's personality? Sai's personality? Not at all... They're just... Characters...

5. Link: Everything must be linked together: Fitting music, fitting background, fitting theme, etc. What is a story with awesome characters, with a great plot if they have no interconnection with each other? C'mon, what is war without the fanfare or the heroic music? Not Linkin Park!!! No link at all...

Here's a link to my newest HTF episode which explains all 5 aspects [link] . This one too from :iconpedro992: [link]
