DimWitDog; Animation I made. Me and my boyfriends fursona. Blah blah blah.

The music was made by my boyfriend.

Psychopath; Somnolence is a story based around Naomi Zipf [DimWitDog] and her boyfriend Wes Templeman [Nos] whom of which she shares a long distance relationship over the internet; Somnolence details the experience of a relationship over the internet by comparing and/or depicting the experience with astral projection; to depict only a simulation of being together, only to awaken to the harsh reality that they're miles apart.


I installed the preloader, the Youtube link, the keyboard based controls, the links to our accounts, the paypal donate/tip jar buttons, the flash ads and most complex of all, the CFC "quick list" application; a rotary controlled list of works created by the CrapFlashCrew's members and DimWitDog.


Although I had no hand in editing the actual content, I had to tweak and edit multiple cuts of what would eventually be the FLV currently in use in order to optimize the quality to it's absolute greatest lengths without breaching Newgrounds' file size limitations, even to the extent of capturing the original FLV frame by frame with a photo capture option in the software I was using, croping it and creating an all new, fresh FLV from it. The end credit sequence was also edited by extending it and increasing it's proportion levels to match that of the content afore mentioned.

SINcerely yours,

very beautiful!

I watched the video then read the author comment box and all I can say is that it is really well put together. I loved the artwork and the story was very heart touching on a personal level for me considering i was in an online relationship and i know how it feels to just want to be the the other person. I really liked how it was to the point and yet elusive enough to keep me wanting to watch it over and over again. I think this is a very good animation with a very touching story even for how short it is. so over all I'm giving it a 5/5 and a 10/10 because of the fact that it touched me on such a personal level and for the great artwork and the time that was put into it.

but where's the rest of it???

Fantastic art but WAY too short. Your point in being together via astral projection is lost in the lack of length. This was not long enough to grasp the separation nor the "out-of-body" aspect. I totally get what you were trying to do, but I think it could've been done a bit more apparent and with more content. :)

Aside from that, kudos for the intent, and double for the art.

The animation was very well done

Although (without the little introduction in the comments) it is rather confusing, it's very sentimental. Nice, but slightly confusing.
Your portrayal of long distance relationships is very well done.
