BEWARE=====> This is a product of amazing music and depression.

4.5MB - about 2 minutes and a half - 3479 frames

This took about a week to do in all, as it's all hand drawn/coffee splashed and scanned in.
I hope you like it.

Music in Flash:
My Window - The Residents


The Feel

The overall aura of this animation was captivating. Your style of art is quite intense, although it may just be my cup of tea as this submission is ranking a staggeringly low 3.5 right now. I really really hope you still get some recognition for this though, because it deserves it.

I wish you the best. From one helplessly depressed mind to another.

Thanks, Haha.

Very nice

I really like this a lot. Like I've said on DA, this reminds me of David Firth in a way.
Definitely keep making these.
This little flash movie thing, whatever you call it, really plays with the emotions, which is good.

you get A+

First i want to say, Excellent choice of music. The Residents will always be one of the best bands San Francisco ever produced. to HELL with all this electropop garbage!

The animation is very fluid, and the look is stylistic and pretty unique. it reminds me of a deathmetal band's logo without the stupid names or the "suck." lol. also, the coffee stained paper backgrounds are a huge textural value-add. a lot of times i don't think people realize that something like that can make a huge difference in the feel and the outcome of the piece. just because you're using Flash doesn't mean it has to look like it came from Flash.

the only thing that i would say needs improvement is his walk cycle. it doesn't really look like he's laying foot to ground. but it's a very good start.

Thanks, I have to fix that. I tried but it just ended up worse.
+ I'm glad you liked my choice of music.


i loved the desolate feel of the movie, the somber music was also great, very cool art work, and i loved the dreng logo, it remindes me of some of the shoegazer black metal logos, (old agalloch, fen). cant wait till i see more
