I'm very sorry for the filesize but I think it's going to be well worth the wait!

This project of mine took about three weeks, I believe. I've been getting a few friends all hyped up about it on my Newgrounds' blog, too so I really hope they soon watch this and enjoy every second of it. This is an experimental flash proving that I can actually animate and make pretty patterns. Please don't think this is going to be completely like one of those random frame by frame animations you get on Newgrounds because it isn't. Yes, it's mainly done by frame by frame animation but it's not just a bunch of lines dancing around looking pretty.

I didn't have many ideas for this so some ideas I did as I went along, some ideas I got from my own personal frustration and one idea was from a Muse CD cover. If you don't know who Muse are, I'm sure I won't be the only one to tell you that you live under a rock.

I really enjoyed making this flash so when I'm filled with tonnes of ideas and I don't know what kind of flash I want to do, I'll try doing another experimental one like this. Anyways, I really do hope you enjoy this animation. Please leave a review for I love to read and respond to them! :D

Love it. It reminds me of prikedelik's work.

Would write a review...

but am busy having a seizure.

Mechabloby responds:

I'm okay with this.

I loved the whole thing, but....

The part with the tuning forks, or strange cacti (Cactuses? w/e.) with a shifting background was my favorite part. Excellently done, and it gave me the sense of a real smorgasboard of ideas, styles, and concepts. Love it.

Mechabloby responds:

Lol that was inspired by the Muse album cover "Origin Of Symmetry".

I'm glad you enjoyed this :)


I liked it though all of it flowed seemingly perfectly and the variety of things worked well, some was very strange and the music was also yet I liked it. The end was a bit unexpected and loud though : (

Mechabloby responds:

Sorry about the volume of it but I'm glad you liked everything else, though. :)


I like experimental flash movies and what you've done is, obviously, in this category, so naturally I recommend it to the "Experimental" collection.
That's really interesting 'cause you got a very nice use of flash and it's clearly pleasant to watch. But it's not simply awesome. I was waiting for something unexpected, and it just happens (for me) at the end (great end! ^^)
It's a bit too short, there's not enough pure fbf in my opinion.
Anyway, nice work, hope to see more from you! (and check my stuff if you want ;) )

Mechabloby responds:

This was just a first experimental flash I've done so it's obvious my future stuff will be so much better. :P

Thanks for the supportive review and I'll try to check out your stuff when I'm not as busy. :)
