Why are there sooo many flashes now with the egoraptor "style" of animating. Why does everything need to be a random outburst with veins popping out and random body parts flying in every direction. Is this the only way to make it into the top ten submissions page anymore? It's very sad to see that artists will not come up with their own original work and instead settle for an already proven and safer method of approval. I thought that was what being an artist was - expressing YOURSELF. Not what you think people want. I'm judging any flash with this style from now on pretty harshly just because I think it's a low underhanded way to gain popularity with the seemingly immature group of fans.
It's an old style his jokes get old since you can pretty much plug in any new flash in the exact same context as one prior. Excluding his now older work i.e. original awesome series and metal gear 1. This new material from egoraptor is almost insulting and quite honestly difficult to watch. Why? It's sad seeing someone going oh well instead of coming up with something new I'll just do another of the same thing. An what happens. He practically has a reserved slot in the top ten submission regardless of what he makes. I'm willing to bet he could make a flash of a pile of crap coming out of a persons mouth for 2 minutes and it'll get rave reviews.
That is also another issue - the fans accepting this crap constantly, and then wondering why nobody comes up with anything better anymore. Don't be afraid to speak up in your review and tell them exactly what you think. Nothing will change if it's always accepted. I'm sorry for singling out one individual artist on here especially since your work itself is amazingly well done. I'm just annoyed that nothing else better has been made by you SINCE you found this formula.
So love you Egoraptor, hate your fan club fan base that will flame anybody who rejects the notion that your style can possibly be overused by everyone.
