This is the sequel to LittleFoot. If you haven't seen it, this movie will make very little sense ;)
I originally intended the littleFoot sequel to be a movie called 'Waterlollies' of around 6-7 min. I emailed a hero of mine, legendary Pogues whistle player Spider Stacy (the main influence on my own musical tastes) to ask if he would create an intro theme tune of 20-30 seconds that I could use at the start of every Brackenwood episode. He agreed, but he went better than that. He got some mates together and created this amazing 3 min song that kicks arse.

When I listened to the tune for the first time, all I could see in my mind was Bitey rocketing over the Brackenwood landscape. So I decided to create a standalone movie that was basically a music video for this song.

You won't find a story here, just a 3min action sequence that follows on directly from littleFoot.

"Waterlollies" is my next Brackenwood installment which will be finished sometime in March 2007. Check out my site for some preview screenshots.

I also wanna thank all of Newgrounds admin, staff and members for your support of my work. Couldn't keep doing this without ya.

OMFG, OMFG, I´m a fan of Bitey since it first appearance in "Prowlies at the River"

Altrough I tought that "Yuyu" was gonna be a dark and cynical sequel, the result was incredible.

I'm really marveled and please with the universe you creating (and is still creating, probabily) and to imagine that what I saw was just a glimpse of the whole thing.

Make more, I want to know this world in a deeper sense. =)

Breath-taking... beautiful...

'Yu' have a true flair for original ideas and sucessfully create a magical world in which interesting creatures dwell. Your artwork is creatively drawn, and the actual animation improves with each short you release - a mean feat considering that your skills were superior to begin with...
Bitey is a loveable rogue that bullies others yet ultimately gets his come-uppance. Your character design is fantastic; it reminds me of Miyazaki - it holds aesthetic quality yet oozes a certain 'truth'.
Unlike other contributors, you do not have to rely on blood, guns and gore, (not that they are necessarily bad things) in order to make your flash animation appealing. The 'Brackenwood' stories are incredibly watchable, not only for their artistic merit, but also for the simplistic yet immersive tales they tell.
My only quibble would be to ass more sound effects, but in saying that I think I am just trying to find fault - often sound effects are over used in flash... the music is great though!
Excellent work; if you have not already broken into the entertainments arts and earnt a fortune, I have a feeling you will do soon.

Raising the bar on Newgrounds


Wow...just wow...

Everytime I see something new from you, I'm always amazed at the quality of work that you present. Everytime, your stuff keeps getting better and better.

The Brackenwood series is an incredible piece of animation, probably the finest there is on newgrounds. You are one of a handful of people who set the bar on what can be done with Flash. I am looking forward to the say that this series shows up on a DVD.

This is the kind of stuff Cartoon Network on Nicktoons should be showing. Good show Adam and best of luck with the next toon.
