Wow! A Newgrounds animator who can actually draw, and an animation with no fighting, no game or pop-culture references, and no pandering to insider crews! What a concept!
It's kinda thin on story, but that's the only criticism I have and I'm giving it a 10 anyway.. It's still cute and charming, and what it DOESN'T have is just as impressive as what it does: originality. If you work on more complex scripts, I think you'll really have something here. Nice work!
If I could offer any constructive criticism at all, it would be that you handle your character outlines differently than they do in the show, but maybe you meant to do that. You're outlining in black, I assume with the brush tool (which really does look more conventional than what they do in the show -- personally, I like it). In the show, they outline with paths and apply a colored stroke. That gives the lines an uncannily precise look that took some getting used to, but if you want to duplicate the style exactly, that's how you have to handle it. Of course, as I said, it's possible that you DIDN'T want to duplicate the show's style precisely. In either case, good job!
This is in Bad Taste
I laugh at Puppy covered with spooge in "Retarded Animal Babies." I think Salad Fingers rubbing his nipples with thistles is hilarious. But making fun of a man so soon after his death is beyond the pale. Funny drawing don't make something funny. This is sick.
Constructive criticism? Stay away from ridiculing the recently deceased. It's not edgy. It's juvenile, mean-spirited and -- here's a word I don't often use, but I mean it literally -- retarded.
Why? WHAT changes 5 years after he's dead? Nothing.
You didn't know Jobs personally and nothing will become funnier. The guy is dead, but I gaurentee you'll be one of the people who tells a Steve Jobs joke or laughs at one in a few months or a few years. At least I'm not being a hypocrite and saying; "YEAH IT'S FUNNY BUT NOT NOW BECAUSE IT'LL BE FUNNY LATER BUT DON'T LAUGH NOW HYNUCK"
I believe you're the retarded one here, and anyone in your boat. If you can explain why it's not funny now because he JUST DIED, I'd love to hear this. If not, you're a massive hypocrite who gets offended when I lightly poke fun about a guy you didn't ever know. Ever.
I'm Practically Speechless
If I could give this more than a 5/5 and a 10/10, I would. This is the most awesome thing I've ever seen on Newgrounds. Wonderful!
