[EDIT -17th November 2005]


This animation was submitted roughly a week ago and today Iíve received a note from DA staff about a violation policy. I wrote back to them stating my respect and acknowledgement on their actions to take the original animation (with song) away. I also thank them for giving me the warning so that in future I wonít be able to do this again. ^_^

Iíve submitted the animation again but this time without the song extracted from the hit anime series Inu Yusha. Over the week after the submission of the original animation Iíve received and overwhelming response from the Sonic/Klonoa/DA community (and favs *chuckle* ^^) on this and I canít thank you guys enough for your positive and helpful feedback and support on it. = ) :hug:

The purpose of this re-submission is for reference only. You need not to comment on it however if you still wish to please donít hesitate. ^_~ :giggle:

I want to treat this as a lesson so that in future I wonít break this specific rule on Ďcopyright use of audio for animationsí again on DA! ^^

Cheers DA team and Sonic/Klonoa/DA community! ^_~ =)

Elson 'Darkspeeds' Wong ~ ^^

[Original message - 08th November 2005]


OMGosh...! For the past two days... Garrgh! This took me like... 2 freakin' full days to do! X_____X;; (short breaks in-between, making dinner, talking to my love on the phone, helping mum with painting, and sleep included... XXXD)

I'm really happy with the results! ^_____^ There is much, much more room for improvement but I needed all the practice I can get! ^__~

This time there are no voices - just pure animation. ;) (However there is a song that many of you may be familiar if you watch a lot of anime. ^_~)

What is the project this time? Well it's Klonoa based and it was made especially for the Klonoa fans at Klonoa Fan Club Message (and some of them are on DA too. ^^). I'll be posting this up shortly on their message board but I would like to share this with you too to show how much I've improved (or more likely deproved... [no such word ne?] *SHOT* XXXXD) from my previous animation.

Thank you all for your feedback on the Sonic and Tails animation. = )

I've received a lot of useful information that can be used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of making and downloading the animation. I'm still in the works of trying to reduce the file size but it's impossible because the quality will be lost! X__X;; I will learn more of file compression with Flash MX after the exams. I think the next animation I'll make will be either one about Shadow and Maria (Shadow & Maria fans = yay! XXXD) or an anime intro of Tails Away! ^____^

Anyway please forgive me for (yet again u_u;;..) reproducing an incredibly large file but I post some tips to make sure you'll be able to see it and see the animation run smoothly.


[DOWNLOAD & ANIMATION PREVIEW ASSISTANCE]


i) Sometimes your computer may not be able to run the animation because you may not have enough RAM or virtual memory to run the graphics. Please don't panic! XD ^^ Try Control Panel in your windows Start bar and select Performance and Maintenance. Adjust your graphic capabilities and performance there before viewing the animation. ^_~

ii) Please make sure you have any programs, that may affect the performance or the running of the animation, closed. The less programs you have running during the screening the more likely the Flash animation will perform at it's peak. ^_~

iii) If none of that works and the current animation is still not loading on this page try the following links:

iv) To affect the speed of the animation right-click on the stage and go to Quality settings. Set from Low to Medium to High to adjust according to your computer speed. ^_~

Alrighty I hope that helps! ^__^ I've managed to perfectly time the music with the running of the animation! It took me extra time to do that! XXXD If the animation slows down then most likely the synchronisation of the song with the animation will be lost. X_X;; So please have an programs closed while viewing! ^__^ Once again please forgive me for the incredibly huge file size but I promise to improve on that in future. ^_~ :hug:

Okay then... Now I MUST begin my studies for my exams! It's only a week away! X_____X;;; LMAO! XXD ^_~

Hey, could you give me advice on this fanwork I'm working on for Klonoa?

What I'm working on is an false animated advertisment for Klonoa Door to Phantomile, on the Playstation. It will be short, about a minute and a half. I just want to start with something small before I get on to something bigger for the franchise. The characters will be drawn in a more westernized, cartoonish style and will be speaking in english. Of course I'll do everything humanly possible to keep Klonoa from sounding like he did in the Wii-make. Finally, I need your advice on something very important: getting permission to post this project. I'm wondering if you got permission to do your work. If so, could you tell me how you got it? I just want reassurance that I won't be sued for copyright infringement. So if you can, please replay very soon, and tell me if you think an fan advertisement would be a good or bad idea (for legal and buisness issues).

Thank you for your time,
SmokingSumSoup

This will probably make a good TV series as long as they don't make it like SonicX.Though the klonoa games aren't popular as most of the sonic the hedgehog series, I personally think klonoa is to good of a game to Suck bad as a anime. If it does become a show it better be good.

Ok.
Number one. That animation. For something done like, hand drawn? Kicks ass.
I've seen stuff that doesnt go anywere close to be as good as this one on the Daily Features for crissake.

Number two. The DeviantArt policy violation thing? Bullshit. Pardon my mothefuckin' french. But that's how it is. I've heard from a LOT of great artists getting treated like shit and having their art taken down or warned because of it. And is good to make the rules being followed, but seriously! Nobody really gives a damn about it, and hell... why not going after the people stealing art, trolling forums, or giving sh*t feedback instead of making the great artists like yourself go throguh this?
Damn.

But yeah, anyway. Thats some kick-ass animation you have here man. Keep it up.

Oops. ^^;

Sorry about this getting deleted and all. Good thing you reposted it, though. It's really a good animation, and the transition from one scene to the next turned out well. Your skill with angles definately came in handy. I think comic skills are probably pretty useful in animation, too. You did an awesome job with this. ^^

Aw...so your previous animation got deleted because you used a song from another source other than your own? Man...that song fit rather well with the animation, too. Ah well, still a good flash.
PS There's a site (sorry if I'm spamming and what-not) known as newgrounds.com . For what I know, they don't care if you use a song from another source; only those who make crappy flash animations, ones that clearly show no work has been done on them, are banned. I warn you, though; it's got a wide variety of characters in there, ranging from the profound to the profane to the perverted.

I really don't understand how this can happen to nearly a third of those who want to watch it! X__X;; Could it be the format of the file that I'm submitting? There is also the possibility that the file is too big. Most likely it's the former case.

Anyway the files I've exported are called swf (Flash Movie) files. Until I figure a way out how to make it standardised (i.e. export into a file that is usable for all platforms) then I'll use that method however for now I've got my university exams to deal with first. XD

To answer your question AlexKun abou what I'm animating - it's a fully animated intro of a fan-made intro of Klonoa anime series. There isn't an official one but it doesn't hurt trying to imitate! X3 ^^ It goes for roughly two minutes less. ^_~

XD Trust me, bro, if you were to be banned a helluva lotta people would be botherin the hell outta the admins asking "WHY!?" *would be one of them *

As for the whole "no songs allowed unless you get permission" I think that rule is kinda lame XD Afterall, people draw fanart all the time and never get in trouble for it, and none of us as ever asked permission to draw copyrighted characters. Perhaps you should just say you did fanart for the song!



Date: Nov 16, 2005, 12:19 PM

You don't always get banned for stuff like that. It depends on what you did wrong, and how severe it was (and sometimes how many times you did it). XD

I accidentally submitted something into the wrong category before, but it was sort of an innocent mistake (it was when they changed the categories awhile ago), I wan't really in alot of trouble. I was just told to be careful next time. I've had friends do the same thing, especially if they were submitting to a category the'd never submitted to before. Such is the case here. You didn't mean to.

Also, they usually ban you right afterward if it was bad enough, I think. And you're not banned, so all is well! =]


Aww thank you two! ^^ :hug: I hope you two didn't mind if I kept your messages for reference on this situation too. ^_~ *chuckle* ^^

Well first off to my sweet angel, thanks for the info. = ) Yes I've gone through that and such with some of the old deviations *pokes at you ^^* However the significant thing was that when I recieved the note from DA staff (and read it) I tried to go back to my frontpage and guess what? I just couldn't! O.O;; LOL! XXD In fact when I hit the reply button to send my feedback to DA staff about my apologies it just didn't happen. X_X;; I wasn't given access for like half an hour. At that point I felt that it really happenned - that I was banned for a couple months or so. ^^;

If that happenned I would have tried to e-mail or call you to talk about it. XXD (It would be a shame if I couldn't even make a comment on DA! ;__; I was planning to comment on all your drawings too! X_X;; XD)

Anyway it appears that I'm not banned for the moment. ^^ I'm happy with that cuz now I can start submitting the next Picnic Heaven. = ) :giggle:

Well once again thanks for looking out for me Bobbi. I'm feeling so happy especially after completing my second exam today! ^__^ I did good on it I think. = ) XX3 My friends and I complimented each other after 2 hours of speed writing those answers! LOL! XXD I'll keep in touch with you on the weekend okay? = ) (via phone... ;)... ~ :heart:...) Love you ~ :smooch: (oh and X-Mas Cream & Cheese pic!!! ^_____^ So cute and charming...! = 3 You're too awesome sweety... ^_~)


Oh and to big sis' Nite-san thank you for your feedback on this. = ) I'm happy that I didn't get banned for posting up something that I didn't believe it would cause quite a devastation. ^^; *chuckle* Even if I did get banned I wouldn't be too upset. = ) I can still work on my stuff and submit later! By then there'll be lots of pages to read on! XX3 *chuckles* Keep up the fatanstic artwork, comments and stuff for me ne? ^_~ *thumbs up*
