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.

Amazing fluid animation. If you keep animating like this, you're going to be really good. The animation here works well without a story and the characters each have their own feel too.

Great work!

Thanks, I hope to keep improving my skills, and I'm waiting for the right story to come along to make something special... :)

I could watch that whole day! Well, actually I watched it loop about 4 times, but still...
The music in the beginning made me think of Kol-Belovs stuff for some reason. The chicken is my favourite, he is creepy as hell I dunno why...

It's well synced and animated, you have a cool style. Also I love how the characters are something of their own, it's like it tells something about them...

So yeah, it'll be interesting to see how the chars develop!

TheBoogley responds:

Yeah, that damn chicken seems like some sort of hannibal lecter character. I thought I was just cranky about how long it took to animate it's slow motions, but lots of people have been creeped out by it!

Love this!

That purple thing is so cute and that blueish purple... bear thing is awesome! I love how you made these creatures move/make the music! Genius! Love the second as well and can't wait for the next one if your making one (please do!).
