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.

This is truly a masterpiece!
I loved it, and watched it probably 7 times in a row!
The animations is at a level beyond smooth. It all just flows so naturally.

Every time watching it I would change which character I focused on, and I could see how flawlessly you matched motion to sound.

I love how each original, and wacky character will just receed into the darkness when their portion is complete. It is interesting to see that every character will remain on screen at all times.

I've never seen anything like this before.
Perfect choice of song for this particular piece of work.

Favorited for sure!!

This was a very impressive animation. What I loved the most was how you made them glow during their periods of activity. Perfect Sync, Perfect song. You really brought the character out of them. I love the bird!

that crazy fella with his little wings flapping around, crazy! :D
