So I was going for more of the scary aspect of this year's contest, which I think came out pretty well. I know that "This is Halloween" has been done many times before, but I tried to take a semi-different approach to this song.

Last year I was invited to do a collaboration to this song for the NG contest but it never ended up being finished. I started over from scratch keeping some basic concepts from my parts and ending up putting all this together in the past 2 weeks, although in those 2 weeks I put as much effort into this as if it would've taken me 2 months on my usual animating schedule.

This is the first real animation I have made in quite sometime (not including a poor 2-day attempt at Pico Day) so I hope that you enjoy this!

Write a review! Ill reply to every single review written.

I liked how the your drawing made the song scarier and more freaky

I realy love the halloween song from nightmare before christmas, and you were realy able to recapture the feeling from it and to create a version of your own.
Nice animation also, good job!

Very very nice.

But seriously... wtf are tender lumplings?

Are they like pumpkin pastries? ima look it up hold on...

"Tender lumplings refers back to Oingo Boingo, the band of the composer and singing voice of Jack, Danny Elfman. The Oingo Boingo Song is found on the CD "Boingo," and is also a relic from the days of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo."

found that on that easter egg website. o well couldnt really depict that anyway!

Nice music syncing even though i was expecting more of a shock factor with like a screamer at the end but this was very well done.

DerajN responds:

hah yeah I actually looked up tender lumplings as well...and its really just made up by Danny Elfman so it really doesnt mean anything, so I thought it'd be funny to put that in there =P ...thanks for the research though

DerajN responds:
