This is my very first "full body" animation. Decided to not animate stickfigures for once.
I did not even make a storyboard for this animation. I just animated as I went on, so there might be some lack of story and meaning in this animation.
Hope you all enjoy, and feel free to criticise.

[edit] Daily 4th! Thanx alot Newgrounds :)

A very refreshing little short. Has an adorable main character, fluid animation, and just tells a simple story. I'm a sucker for that sort of thing, but well done nonetheless

Is it too late to marvel at this one's brilliance? I mean, let's face it: right now on the Front Page of Newgrounds is nothing but parodies and tributes; one satire entrenched in video game marketing, that's about it. "Fluffo" not only embraces the Newground style of original characters and production, it exemplifies it.

In this short by oxob3000, the little creature Fluffo explores a cavern in the arctic filled with wonders and mysteries, but gets the cold shoulder from a shadowy predator. Can he make it out with wits and fur intact?

Now, oxob3000 has made several Stick Figures in the past and the fluidity of the animation for both Fluffo and his enemy--not to mention a few good prop effects--sets itself above most standards and at a low, low file size of 2.9 mb. Very few people I know personally can pull that sort of thing off. Next, the soundtrack and effects are juicy and well-mixed, fitting the mood like leather gloves.

Finally, and this is most important: the action was so quick and concise that the character Fluffo could easily be replicated time and time again, a little adventurer out in a brave new world. The great part about the character is that it doesn't have a trace of the violence that is almost mandatory when referring to a stick movie. Face it: you can't be without it. With characters that are mobile at some level, this decides to take another route: survival. The wilderness crossed with fantastic creatures turns this into a nature program of sorts, like the stuff from National Geographic. Influences like Adam Philips and the Ice Age movie franchise also leave notable marks, though to be certain, this is all oxob3000 flexing his muscles and showcasing another side of him. The rabid cuteness of Fluffo must be the most profound juxtaposition to oxob's back catalog, but without that catalog, there would be no Fluffo.

The influence of Fluid Anims and other stick figure speicalty sites--sites that concentrate less on anatomical detail and emphasize effects and consistent output--have groomed a renaissance man out of oxob3000. "Fluffo" is a step above and beyond the fold--modest at first glance, but striking regardless.

Post-Script: While you're at it, check out Fluffo's Newgrounds-based soundtrack that catches the cartoon's essence perfectly. The musicians are pretty talented!
