Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 199 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

Play is an animated short about a Forest Dude and his buddy, who happens to be a bird. While having just the most joyous time for the both of them, the bird is dramatically hurt! For a term project in my DMT Course in college we had to basically make some type of "Media" project in any shape, like 3D animation, a website, graphic design, movie. I decided to mix After Effects with Photoshop and Flash and see what I could do. The project that I made is kind of a Bitey of Brackenwood remix, I was definitely influenced by that, and a desire to paint lots of green plant stuff.


I think I'm going to actually try to do some work in ToonBoom now too, it seems sweet.

This is gorgerous! :'( I can see the Brackenwood and Phillips inspiration. But your own style shines through a lot. Such beautiful and smooth animation!! River, keep doing such great work, please.

Your message is so pure, goosebumps when the tears fell
Realism/correct physics in the action of the humanbeing is quite messy though.

this should be a video game!!!

im not sure why though...

Its really cool!

And awesome!
