Oh, hello there newgrounds, I didn't see you there.
Now that you're here maybe you'd like to have a look at my latest animation.
It's pretty abstract... don't say I didn't warn you.

Over the past year or so I've been working a lot with design principles and elements and wanted to make a stripped back piece with a focus on basic shapes and principles of movement. I found an old book of origami patterns and did some basic planning, then BOOM here we are... My main focus in animating this was using easing in and out and overlapping actions to create a more effective whipping action in the folds. This is entirely frame by frame animation, I don't believe that you can create realistic exaggerations of movement with tweens, though I'd love for someone to prove me wrong because animating it would be much quicker.

I've added a section showing how to fold your own paper crane if you're interested. If you fold 1,000 of these suckers you will achieve enlightenment... and paper cuts.

Very good

Nice animation, the step-by-step thing was perfect. The sound fits perfectly with the animation too.

thanks, that was the main thing that I liked about the music, the beat and tempo were perfect to sync to

Some of the best animation I've ever seen, a level of brilliant on par with Adam Phillips. Doing it completely by frame by frame really pays making a unique style, quirky yet smooth. I usually don't like abstract art but I just found this animation so compelling I found myself blown away. Please continue making amazing animations like this.

thanks mate, that's a pretty great compliment! :D

An interesting idea to strange music. That should be "THE BOOGLEY" defined in the dictionary.

It was really cool, and the step by step instructions were a nice touch as well :)
