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.

Man, animation...

Love your style, always will. The characters are really great, fitting the parts they were playing really well. I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll do with them.

me too... I hope it's good... :3

Crazy & Different, in a good way

This would be an easy 11+ when tripping on acid or x.

TheBoogley responds:

yet I just see it as a cool thing for kids to watch...
...on drugs of course :)

It was a well spent 45 seconds

very nice, very smooth. the lines moved fluently without any unwanted jerks or tweaks. I didn't quite give it a ten. Your characters didn't have any fills, which wasn't a bad thing, but some of them overlapped, slightly. Not a huge deal b/c the work on a whole was entertaining and well crafted.

Good job:)

TheBoogley responds:

I was going to fill them in but then with them overlapping each other parts of the animation would be blocked by the character in front, and I didn't want to shrink them and spread them out more. I quite liked the effect, but I certainly see your point.
cheers mate. :)

That was awesome! Where did you get the idea for the creature with the exploding (?) head? It looks a bit like a pie...or vomit.

TheBoogley responds:

I was just drawing stuff and that's what came out, kind of a cloudy head thing...
