[Edit] I forgot to credit cornandbeans because I used a sample of {Rose} Remastered in this flash. Yes, I did, it's hard to find, but it is in there. I'll give you 5 points and an e-cookie if you can tell me whereabouts in the flash I sampled the song. Lawl >:D

[Edit 2] Thanks, TomFulp, for the add to the Valentine's Collection. :D
That made me happy.

First off, I'd like to say that this is my first animation that I'm submitting to newgrounds. I'm not terribly good, but I think this is alright, considering the time frame I put this together in. The style and plot is very much inspired by Dan Paladin's PEACETANK animation, but this is nowhere near as good as his. Also, the inspiration for the loveblimp character came from SolusLune's music in the Continue the Song Game collab, which started in the audio forum and is now progressing into an audio/flash collaboration. I had to animate SolusLunes audio, and the "loveblimp" cruised through the background. My part in that collab will be much neater and nicer to lookat than this, but I thought, what the hell, a valentines day animation about a blimp sounds alright. So, a thank you goes out to SolusLunes, Dan Paladin, Rig, SolidElectro (and everyone else from the CTSG collab). I used 3 songs here, "Montagues and Capulets" by Prokofiev (no, he's not from Newgrounds, lol), that's the classical song, Stardust Crazy, by Rig, vocals by Natty Miller, that's the second song used in the animation, and my own song, Last Days of Summer, about a 1 1/2 minute demo not on newgrounds yet (I'll be posting it on February the 29th).
Uhh, I think that's everything, so, I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it passes judgement.

Cheers.

nice

reminds me of a submission called "Peacetank" :p


WritersBlock responds:

I quote myself: "The style and plot is very much inspired by Dan Paladin's PEACETANK animation", so, yeah, I'm glad that worked out. =P

Happy St. Cupid's Day.

for a first flash

this was really good. most peoples first flash is something like a single frame of a sickfigure beating somehting over and over again but this was something else :D
good song too


WritersBlock responds:

lol I did mess around with sticks a while ago, but blimps are so much more original. =P Also, there's much less FBF business. I'll be spending most of my time getting FBF people to run across the screen in my part of the CTSG collab, but the main reaction will probably be like "blimp lolollololololol" even though that took far less time.
Cheers.
Merry Heartmas!

Hehe, awesome dude. Can't wait to see your finished part of the collab. Worked out a transition yet?


WritersBlock responds:

No, I've got to talk to adman and britishmoose, although I think a couple of people would like to see the loveblimp crash into something in britishmoose's part. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out...

Happy valentine's!

Blimp Secks.

For 6 hours of work, you did an amazing job. Kudos.


WritersBlock responds:

It's ok, they're just blimps. ^_^

Cheers. I had no idea whether or not I was going to do this, but it was a lot of fun messing about, putting it all together.

Happy secks day!
