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.



quite a trip

wow. remides me of some past expierements with questionable substances. I wish it was longer, but other than that, amazing. Hope to see more. I must admit, I stared at those dancing creatures for about ten minutes, lol. catchy tune!

TheBoogley responds:

after ten minutes they start staring back at you and asking questions in strange dead foreign languages.

Out of sight.

Ok so there are a lot of things you watch, and if you're of the right persuasion you say to yourself
"DAMN..that would probably collapse my brain if i saw that while I was tripping balls." But half that stuff is made in said fashion on purpose.
hahah this one is on a whole nother level.

P.S. it just so happens i accidentally posted this review on "Left 4 Speed" . . shucks.

TheBoogley responds:

so... you must be off your tree to do that, excellent work! :D

That was so fucking awesome.

Seriously, very very creative, I wouldn't mind seeing you add onto it. Like, "Sketchy Friends Legion" or something, heh, don't take ideas from me, they're horrible.


TheBoogley responds:

Sketchy friends with lesions? eugh, ouch {:0


gooooood but i dont just hand out 10s like most people

TheBoogley responds:

okay... fair enough.


this has got to be the trippiest animation I've seen yet, great job syncing with the music, your hard work paid off!!

I'm glad to say I can now thrust my pelvis (long story) yes, this is entertaining to watch and the best thing is it doesn't get old, that's why I love this loop

will you be doing more in the future?

TheBoogley responds:

I hope to make more along these lines, I really enjoyed making this and I've gotten some great feedback on it. Good to hear you've got your thrust back! :D
