'Instant Noodlecinations'

Share Collapse

This is the microscopic story of Grelk, a hungry tower-headed who finally got enough spoons to exchange for a cup of instant atomic noodles, (the ones that are literally 'instant'), hoping for the greatest possible meal on his planet.

/This was a microscopic LOOP made for the 'Loopdeloop's' bi-monthly contest, this time with the theme of "Hallucinations".

Imagine if you could using actionscript randomize the color of that main character so that each time the animation loops it appears like it's actually a different person ready to consume those noodles. :) This was an awesome animation, quick, fluid and just geniusly done. Not very spooky but it is pretty Halloween-befitting. Keep up the great work!


Butzbo responds:

Heh, that's a cool idea, it's also one thing that would certainly make a great reason to keep sticking to flash instead of regular video for more unexpected animations.
Heh, I had it finished around Halloween, but I guess It could've been a bit spookier to fit the theme, hahah.

Animation was... different, not in a bad way. However the foley work here stands out more than the animation does, great work/find in the department. Also, now I want a cup-o-noodle something fierce!

Butzbo responds:

Hah, on this case the sound aspects were some sort of "chiptune"/noodle-sounds mixing experiment, so atleast is great to know it went alright!
I still have to agree; while still relatively 'complex', the visuals could have got a little more going on, considering the 'trippy' theme.

Ah yes the competition for that one was something else!
Are the result out already?

Butzbo responds:

Hah. yes, so many creative perspectives turned into trippy loops!
This one did alright with scores, but he 'main' winner this time was great, one of my favourites!

I know I say this every time, but I love your drawing style...the "liquid" quality of your lines and movements is very unique and I think you utilized your style well here by have a hallucination theme. Excellent work! Made me smile and laugh :)

Butzbo responds:

Thanks Bigfoot, always superb to know :D
