Mario RPG: Rawest Forest

EDIT: To all billion of you upset about the volume of the character "voices" compared to the actual song, send your complaints to the original creator of the song. I simply animated to the MP3 I had, and couldn't alter it in any way. There's nothing I could've done to change it, sorry.

This was a little idea I came up with practically on a whim last Sunday. I finished the whole thing in a little under a week, and I think it turned out pretty well. Back in 2004, a dude by the name of Martin Hagwell, also known as "Märta" made a song out of the BGM from the "Forest Maze" level from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. Just recently, he remixed the song he created into a full-fledged professional sounding song, titled "Rawest Forest". After finding the song by chance last weekend thanks to a YouTube video, I took a listen, and got the idea for this movie. Mario RPG is one of my absolute favorite games of ALL time, and I know it inside and out. Those who know the game as well as I do will catch all of the references scattered throughout the animation. I also used this as a test to try out some new little tricks with animation. The good majority of the movie is frame-by-frame, and yes, I know the drawings're a little crappy (I don't have a tabley, unfortunately), but I enjoyed working on it throughout my last full week of High School (YAY), and it doubled as the final for my animation class, so that's even better! Anyway, hope you enjoy it for what it is. I certainly had a ball.


Not bad...

I still remember this hame by heart. I can still name all the frog coins in the first three areas xD
The vid was done well for hand drawing...but times here and there, the music drowned out the voices.
Still, you did well with this.

P.S. Geno rules!

Cool... but I couldn't understand almost all of it

Like I said, It was cool, but I had to listen to it three times before I could start to understand it. If you ever have the time, and it is not too much trouble, could you put subtitles in?

Who can forget that game?

It was an easy game really, compared to other RPG's like FF or other back in the day. I really liked the artwork because it was original. So overall it was pretty sweet listening to it. =)

Ho-Lee CRap

That is amazing

Super Mario Rpg was such a great game and to have it relived in a song is amazing, and though you dont have the greatest drawings, they're still pretty good and the animation flows quite smoothly with the song

I salute you

Well I enjoyed it ^_^

Ok that was pretty kool but the graphics did u draw those it looks like it must have took a while WAY TOO GO MAN
