This is the best use of animation cycles I've seen in ages. The retro styling, color design, music and story really fit well together. And props on the props -- I know how hard it is to make something look both simple and excellent, and your backgrounds were just superb. Great work!
Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate it! : )
Nice retro look, the the color and drawing style really fit that older style. Reminded me a lot of UPA's stuff or the UPA inspired stuff on Cartoon Network.
But what animation program are you using for this? Because the the pixelated lines on the zoom-ins and close-ups really bothered me, and I'm sure those were intentional, it kinda takes away from the whole retro aesthetic you're going for. The art style you used had a lot of thick lined simplistic drawings with repeating cycles, so a vector animation program like Flash would be perfect for this kind of thing and the linework would never look blurry like it did here.
Thank you for the input.
I used "Tv Paint", and some lines are pixelated because I didn't want to work with super heavy files, so I did 1920:1080 and zoomed in when needed.
I know vector lines are definitely better. : )
Cute! Love the retro stylings. Reminded me a little of some of the animation bits they used to have on Sesame Street when I was young.
Thank you for the input! :)
I love the mix of art styles used here.
obvious Hanna-Barbera influences makes me wanna watch Boomerang again.
Yes, Hanna-Barbera rocks! :) :)
The name seems unhinted both at start and finish, but the animation itself... smooth work. The style reminds me of the early Hanna-Barbera era cartoons, but with the jazzy music it's more like something from the seventies. I like the style, colorful but not too bright, no talking, just good vibes, a story told through the music... nice piece.
Thanks, you are totally spot on! ;)
