I'd used flash to do animations before these but i wanted to experiment with useing the traditional method with acetate cels and the such. It took much longer than it would have on flash but now i actually have something physical to show for it which is quite cool.

So, how did you make this? It's great!
Did you make the animations as AVI, MP4, or MOV files, then import them into Flash?
Anyway, very impressive animations...

It's very cool that you managed to create a newgrounds submission animated using cels.

It's even more impressive that this was posted in 2007.

I'd like to see future attempts at Cel animation on Newgrounds.

Newgrounds has a Video Player now.

Cel animation could play back a lot better at a video.

I'm very impressed that this submission worked within the old technical limitations of Newgrounds.

The Technical limitations have changed.

You can post cel animation as a video here now.

You had a very cool idea.

Thanks. I'd like to post some Bill Plympton style hand drawn cartoons on paper in future too.


who's the hottie doing the backwards roll?

Very cool.

Hey, this is what it's about, right? Traditional animation, nice to see more of this stuff. I have always been fascinated by traditional hand-drawn animation, and you did quite a nice job. You should keep it up. I too focus on traditional hand-drawn animation, and I have a couple on Newgrounds (they're not done on acetate though, I used regular paper and traced with my lightbox, so there are no backrounds or anything). Anyway, you did an excelent job, very stylistic, and well-drawn. You have a lot of tallent. Keep up the good work!

OscarBaldwinStudio responds:

Yeah traditional animation is good but Flash is easier. the next thing i submit will be flash. I watched you're origin of hair. It was funny. Reminded me of the beatle's cartoon style.

This will probably......

...inspire some folk to pursue flash art...which ups the value of this by a lot. Good job bro.
