Kingbastard told me once how he would have loved his music to be animated in a sort of style like David Firth's. I didn't really want to be unoriginal and do complete Fat-Pie rip-off, so I decided I'd try something new and came up with this weird video. As you may notice, this was made using only black and white colors. It's been in the making faaar too long, which was very unnecessary. But hey, atleast it is finished now!
End 2005: I started working on this project. Not being home a lot I couldn't spend much time on it. I stopped working on it for a long time somewhere in 2006. The parts I animated in this period of time were from the beginning up to the trafficjam.

Early 2007: I got back to work on it but stopped the production quite soon. I animated from the trafficjam up to the part where he's about to get out of the car.

Early 2008: You can clearly see that I've gotten better at this point. I animated from the part where he gets out of the car, up to the part where he stops climbing. I would have finished it this year if I hadn't lost my flash when my computer crashed.

Early 2009: Happy news; an online friend happened to have the latest shockwave file of my flash. I continued from the part where he started running. All the way up to the end. This flash has taken waaaay too long to make. It's ridiculous! I could have gone through the trouble to revise my earlier work on this animation but I just love how you can see my animationskills improve over all of those years.

Extra thanks go out to Cyberdevil, he sent me a whole bunch of old Kingbastard songs some months ago =D



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Quite enjoyable

I liked how you paired scene changes with the changes within the music. SImple and yet lots of detail. I liked the mix of still shots along with the animation. Good job.

Cool, thanks!

Another awesome piece of abstract work. It's great to see some more work that's not based around a storyline or a song. Oh, except this is a song, um... you know what I mean. it's an abstract piece of work that is mostly well drawn and sounds great.

If you plan to make another take some advice.
1. do not take as long to make this one.
2. Do another song like this guys, it would be great to see some additional work surrounding this music.

Whirlguy responds:

I certainly don't plan to make another movie as long as this, haha. And I agree, people should animate to KB more often (:

Artistically done.

I enjoyed the mass use of lines for both shading and to add to that weird effect. The realistic perspective switches looked amazing, especially with the unrealistic monochrome and shading.

To fix: Don't have the character sing the song. It makes it sound cheesy. Also, add subtitles; I probably wasn't the only one who couldn't hear what was being said.

Whirlguy responds:

Aww, but Weeksy likes that part :P
