Brace yourself Newgrounds...

I've pooped out a steaming nugget of fresh animation and it runs for a whopping, wait for it, 45 seconds.

I've always been one of those guys who would draw in class all the time, and now it's kind of starting to get out of control. I'm doing it when I go out for dinner, when I'm watching a band, in meetings at work, on the train, when I wake up with an idea in the middle of the night, while riding my bike... well not then but you get the idea.

So I've been drawing all these crazy characters for a while and decided I wanted to see what they'd look like moving around. I didn't want to spend time developing a story or personality for them, so I found a music track with lots of bloopey bleepey sounds and animated them as though they were dancing around and making the sounds with the music, which is National Zombie Attack by Tarteviant.

I believe this is the best animation I've done to date, and at 30 fps (1370 frames) it came to four weeks of hard work to make it, and I might use some of these characters again in a story in the future now that they've developed their own little personalities. Oh yeah, it'll continuously loop back to the start each time the music finishes, so don't sit there all day thinking something new is about to happen...

thrust your pelvis around the room dancing, chuck us a review, and if you like it please submit it to the music video collection.

Very cool

I love the abstract, almost 'tribal' feel the drawing and animation style has. I didn't find the music as pleasing as the animation, but there are only so many songs you could mix with your art like that!

Maybe next time make them play when you click on them, so you can kinda mix your own thing? Just a thought!

I would like to see a movie based on this idea, where a group of ________ wonders around, but each one can only say a certain phrase, so they work togethor to get things done (whatever it is they are doing).

Thanks for the great submit!

I like your thinking... I've seen that sort of thing done well before, maybe I'll try it some time... :)

Short but sweet, this is the type of flash you can watch over and over again yet it will never get old. I love the how you did the coloring of the little characters as they moved, it almost felt interactive. I really liked it :D !

- 1 for length.

TheBoogley responds:

"an almost interactive movie"... I like that :3

t-t-t-t trippyyy.

Thanks for that!

They moved well, I like how each character had a certain bit of time they would represent. All around just cool and trippy.
Well done.
