I submitted this for my midterm project for my color class yesterday. They loved it. I was allowed to use any medium I wanted as long as it depicted the interaction of a predetermined color scheme (in my case a tetrad of red, green, blue-violet and yellow-orange). I wanted to create a simple story that could be told in a short time frame with no dialogue. I suppose it took around 20 hours over the course of one week so I'm a little sleep deprived. Let me know if it was worth it.

[Update]

Well shucks, guys. After frequenting this site for the past 11 years I've finally made the top 5. I want to thank everyone for the unanimously supportive feedback and for voting. Granted the cartoon I only had a week to work on makes Daily 4th place. Maybe I'm trying too hard. Anyway stay tuned. I have some projects already planned and/or in progress and I plan on getting that elusive Daily 1st. Just you wait.

[Update]

Now featured on the front page? You guys are spoiling me. I'm stuck indoors because of the hurricane so I'll try to repay the favor by putting a dent in my next project.

Good to hear! I think I'm going to use a more minimalist style in the future.

The art here is simple, but serves its purpose and I get the style you were going for, I do. Though in my opinion, some of the quality of the art really varied - it's most noticeable in the beginning, it looked very simplistic and a bit gritty. The animation is very good and very fluid, I really liked it. Sometimes the movements felt odd, though, mostly with the motion-tweened parts. It's a minor complaint though, and it can easily be fixed by easing your tweens (I would suggest 100-out to 0 or 100-out to 100-in.)

I liked how well the animation complemented the song; I think that's definitely something worth noting. The style complements the song very well. There isn't much to say about the song itself, but I did enjoy it and I felt like it was a good song choice.

4/5

Thanks for the advice! I did ease most of the tweens but I'll keep that in mind in the future. I think the animation could be more fluid in parts. I know that the bar maid in the intro could have used a touch up as well. Glad the song worked. I had it in mind while I was still doing the story boards.

OMGOMG have watched it like 10 times now, so awesome, love music and awesome short story, but a word of advice from a guy who suckes at animation... introduce a whip sound to the story ;)

What is "Black Void"? A group? What kind?

It's just a production name I've used for all of my animations. It's kind of silly since I'm the only person involved but oh well.
