Raptor Dance! Now silhoutted. Class this week will be spent doing cleanup. I LOVE how this came out, SO much. Minus the wobbly frames here and there, which are part of the cleanup thing for tuesday. No sound because internet and copyrights and etc. The version I'm handing in will have the sound added outside flash for the sake of quality and flat out accompanament, since it's timed and all. Edited with cleaner fills

I'm sorry but when Sonya is asking Dawn why Diego is so afraid... the animated part of him zipping by around the round pen made me laugh... I had to keep it in there lol.
Anywho its finally here! *round of applause*... Took a whole year to plan, figure out, and actually get done... flash animation is hard to work with .
There are of course some stuff I need to clean up some more... and re do even... but at this point in time I think it is finished enough to post.
What originally delayed it for so long... I had to cut out scenes or add some more in because of the deadline I planned for it was too short for some of the stuff I wanted to fit in there... what you see here is actually two pages in my sketch book for the interactive comic.
Anywho I hope you all enjoy the first part of it . Now that I have figured out how to do the sort of thing I wanted to do hopefully the next part comes a lot more quickly.
Notes: The reason why the art is more simpler is because flash 8 can't handle a big file with a lot of gradients or details in each frame. I have a very powerful computer so that just gives you an idea how complex flash 8 is with coding.
I used references on the red truck (partly because I don't know how to draw cars lol). But as for the trailer that was out of sheer memory of my own horse trailer (it actually looks exactly like my horse trailer at home lol ).
You got questions about this (comic wise or flash 8) I got answers so don't be afraid to ask .
Since Yumiko and Hakumeimon were one of the last ones to get to Whamon in the first preliminary round, they wanted to be one of the first teams to set examples to all the other challengers. Hakumeimon already is great at speed, she needs a lot of help in Defense and HP.
See her train as her tamer encourages her in the background!
I added Koromon and Botamon like I was suppose to, and then I enlarged the Green Gym, added a couple of signs and some more digital effects. I started from scratch and just built it up!
I added Jijimon like I was suppose to now. I still kept Koromon and Botamon because they are just simply so cute! It kind of seems that Jijimon is trolling for some reason! LOL
Ragnarok Wisdom (my RO-related webcomic) has reached 300 comics, and is also five years old as of this date. I figured that such an occasion deserved more than the usual faire I've done in past anniversaries, and this is the result.
You'll notice that this is the first anniversary comic that breaks tradition if you've been following RW; for one ... neither me or Sun Wukong appear in this. At all.
Actually I would have added parts for the both of us if I had the time, but even the best attempts at clearing a path for work on RW failed to give me much free time (I wound up having only maybe a week's worth freed up).
This deviation is also up on trial at Newgrounds. I don't know if we're allowed to crosslink, but if you guys want to cast your vote for this--whatever it is--you can find it here. [link]
Hope you guys enjoy it!
One of the missing scenes has been added. That means 20~30 extra seconds on the movie's overall length.
