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.

This is a really sweet 45 second clip (pity it took me four minutes to realize it was looping). It reminds me of some of Ryan Larkin's psychedelic animations from forty years ago (which are certainly worth a google search for those unfamiliar with them).

I personally think boring but i didn't even look at the people because the bird man thing was so !!!ugly!!!
I was just listening to the music it was pretty good.
Make the people look better or cutter.

TheBoogley responds:

the bird man, ugly? yes. no. maybe.

I personally didnt care for the music but I wont be a jerk and hold that against you ;P

I thought you did very well on the animation, its a classic concept and I think its one you pretty much mastered in this flash.
Only criticism is there needed to be more variety in the sound. You had many different sounds yes, but only 3 of them really played a lot. I would like to have seen more actions from the others.

Good job, and good luck with your future submissions

TheBoogley responds:

Yeah, it would've been better if I pitched my idea to the musician and had custom made sound for the film, but when I started the project it wasn't so ambitious, I was only going to make a little something something to get back into the swing of things after a break. But then it got bigger...
Thanks for the feedback :)
