King Dragonfly ~v1

This is a video clip for an electronica/ambient song, King Dragonfly by Susumu Yokota. On each underground ride the grub turns more into the dragonfly. Its sort of a metaphor for how the world gets smaller as you grow up. I plan on polishing it a bit so constructive feedback is very much appreciated. Otherwise all the elements are there, enjoy!

Well as i say, unique, it is so different to what you normally find on newgrounds, well i think it is. The music almost seemed to have been made for this it worked so well. I just love the style it looks like it was hand drawn, it ihas a strange fluidity with it that i can't quite explain but that all just goes to make it even better


The whole look and style of the piece is beautiful. I loved it. Though, I must admit, I didn't really understand much of what was happening (except that he was slowly turning into a dragonfly) until after I had read a few of the reviews and the prompt. It was really good though. It's almost refreshing to see something completely different among the submissions here. Thanks. (^^)

Very artistic

Not the usual stuff you see on NG. Keep it up, you're doing great!

one way to prove you're an artist

you used your own artwork in this flash and the music is unique, not the same techno/trance remixes in everything else. you are an exceptional illustrator(i saw your site). the dying neuron was not one of my favorites, but considering the span between the animations, you're improving fast


I liked it a lot, but that was clearly not a dragonfly nymph. They start out pretty leggy, and have bizarre extending jaws. a very cool animal, particularly to watch them hunting.
