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,



i dont really get it

its not the best and i don't get the story 4/10 2/5

Can't Say I Like It

Graphics are really good, and the animation really portrays it through the FBF animation, but I didn't like that the section after the initial embrace used only two frames. It seemed kind of cheap to me. Three or four might have made it look a little bit better, or maybe two that showed the wind blowing the fur back on the characters. On top of that, the shortness of this animation hurts you pretty bad too.

impressive all thigns considered.

frame by frame hand drawn animation is practically a lost art these days. it was well done congrats on the 3rd place it is worth it for the effort placed into it. however it felt very incomplete. part of a good animation is having patience to make a plotted animation with a story. there are plenty of techniques to handle the file size issue instead of releasing it as an flv you can input it frame by fame into adobe flash and it will dramatically reduce the file size. it isnt an easy take it is arduous tedious and time consuming but in the end you come out with a better looking and longer animation. compressing sound is also a good way to optimize the actual file size and that is added separate when doing FbF animations. just eeking by on a limitation doesn't in its self make it impressive. but the work got done. with more practice you can make it work even better. file size is the bane of people who are new to these things. i remember when the file size limit was 4megs. :) good work all in all though.

What the...

It is so short isn't it?I mean,it should have a finish...

one suggestion

The timing is so fast some of the more moving scenes feels abrupt. I know animation with slow progression is a pain in the a**, but too fast and there won't be enough time to allow the viewers to properly digest what they've seen.

Perhaps just this once, extend the flash by 10%, would be perfect.
