Dude, Fantastic story arc, animation, timing, writing, backgrounds, everything! This is the whole package!
I love the way you framed this different style and format inside your usual aesthetic! Good stuff!
Excellent animation, composition and design! Cheers for 1min looping animations!
It's really interesting to see this next to "And the Birds Flew", and seeing it as what I'd imagine you thought of in your OG newgrounds days as your future masterpiece.
Watching this realist approach is really interesting in animation, and especially with the heavy easing you used. It's tense the entire time, but just keeps slowly rolling forward; all in spite of it's narrative's hum-drum surreality and the shear will power to animate it in the way you did.
It's aesthetic feels akin to a grindstone in every way possible.
Yeah, what a nightmare this thing was to animate. I had a couple of little things between this and "And the Birds Flew", but you're right that this one was definitely the "Ok, time a make my big hand-drawn masterpiece". Yikes!
Wonderful experiment! Using the guidelines as another layer of animated texture, and to emphasize the traditional mechanical theme, was a really nice touch.
This is the kind of thing I get excited about in animation and on newgrounds!
A+ exprementing with physical/digital texture in the composition and audio! You're tone and confidence in the audience's acuity is always appreciated, especialy around here.
Got the best kind of Edmund O'Neill vibes from parts too!
