Hi Newgrounds, I've missed you, even though the most of you probably don't know me anymore, perhaps, never have known me.

These past few years, I've been working on animations, although not in Flash format. I entered an art college, and I'm currently in my second year. There, I animate on plain paper with lightboxes and stuff.

Story:

The background of the movie is that the theme park got closed for some reason. An accident happened (the Wiggly Tower broke) and people died. As a closure, the panda (he was a mascotte of the park, and treats the park as his home), wanted to pay a hommage to the deceased. He puts effort into winning the price, treat it like a human and try to spend some quality time with it. In the end, when the day is over, he puts the doll into those chalk lines, one doll for every person who died.

It's really not clear in this movie, but for some reason, I wanted it to be a bit mysterious, as it is something that only I need to understand, and others don't necessarily have to.

Anyway, enough with the reading, go watch the freaking movie.

PS.: I'm too lazy to translate the few sentences that appeared in my movie, if you wonder what "Weifeltoren" means, it means something like "a wiggly tower" in Dutch, a wordplay on the Eiffel Tower.

I really like it but how do you make movies with water color? Render it? 5/5 :)
Nice spookyness, I understand that this was more just for you to know then for me to know but thanks.


DJJ-asshole responds:

Haha, don't look for so complicated techniques, I just did it by hand. Drew it with pencil, coloured it with a brush and scanned it into my computer. It's made with very traditional techniques.

it came in as odd, which i like but as i continued to watch i felt love, reading other comics the plot seemed clear, and i absolutely adored it.

Well that was darned good. I actually liked it, even though I had no idea what was going on, and I think that everyone could pick what they wanted it to mean. I also really enjoyed the art styling. The watercolor-ish stuff was cool and added to the... mood, I guess. Anyway, good work, definitely deserving of 5 stars.


DJJ-asshole responds:

It may sound like an excuse, but apart from the message "a panda in an abandoned park", and "solitude", I don't need anyone to understand more.

I'm happy you liked it, it's reviews like this that keeps me going.

I really liked this. The art work (which looks like a water pain style) is a unique kind of art style. The animation was also a cool and not very often used style. It also had a very creepy feel, which is really awesome. I really like this and I wish to see more of your submitions. :)
