Hi. This is my first submission to Newgrounds, so bare with me if you will.
This flash was first created in 2004, then neglected. As of May 2005, though, I decided to pick it up again, and complete it. This includes finishing the other half and recoloring all elements, just to name a few.
The entire work is frame by frame animation, and lasts a little more than a minute. There's references to Kirby games all over, in the music, title, character choice, and a really obvious one at the replay screen. Fellow Kirby zealots may find that appealing. =)
That should cover everything, I hope you enjoy it!
Edit: Oy, it appears I have a bit of explaining to do. Here goes...
First animation: No, this isn't the first animation I've ever made, just the first one I ever submitted. It would be a little awkward otherwise, wouldn't you say?
Music choice: Well, for the original theme, it actually is a remix of the Miniboss music from Kirby 64. With the spacy feel, I thought it was fitting. The alternate music is also from Kirby, and since I actually liked that one more, I added it on as a choice so that you'd have a say in which song you wanted to hear.
Sound Effects: Very sorry. I didn't realize it would make all the difference. I just avoided them because I thought they'd clash, plus I didn't know where to get any quality sounds.
Length/Plot: To be completely honest, this movie's a bit longer than was planned. You see, I draw up everything on a storyboard of sorts before actually animating it. Though the ending seems rushed, it's actually supposed to get less detailed as the battle goes on. It was intended to be a short little cartoon like that of a teaser. That's why there's no plot, either. It just sorta happens for no reason (and yes, even I think it's a bit confusing). I suppose it does help to have a bit of background knowledge of Kirby, though. I never really expected to submit this here, so I didn't consider that. After all, this was a project I started a year ago. Who knows what I was thinking then. =D Anyway, I don't usually stray from the original concept, no matter how old it is.
Again, I apologize for the tardiness, but I hope I cleared some things up, that is, if anyone reads this.
Is it strange for me to use my commentary in this way?
