New toon

2015-01-24 09:00:39 by RoastedStix

I made a new toon. It's kinda long but not really that long you can click on this link to watch it here on NG. I haven't put it up on Youtube yet though.

So here's something about this cartoon, I started working on it on I think March or April 2014 so this took almost a span of one year to make which is why I literally didn't make anything at all last year. I had a lot of setbacks; I was kind of in a bad point in my life and I was really too busy from school to work on this for a couple of months so it got even more delayed. I also tried actually putting effort into making the backgrounds, so I used Photoshop and SAI to further edit my backgrounds this time. The animation was still tweened, but I put in a lot of frame by frame stuff in this thing and I had to animate a lot of stuff that I never even done before.

Alright, I'm gonna be a hipster faggot and review my own cartoon. This cartoon was supposed to be longer but I had to cut out a lot of parts and even then I still think the pacing is a bit odd in this one. Also, storywise, I kinda did what I had in mind and it kinda captures the essence of what I orignally planned this to be, but I think it's still not the same as how I envisioned it, but regardless I think this one's alright.

Since I've always used pure tweened animation, making this one was kinda challenging. I also have never animated an animal before ( I think? )  so that was kinda hard. I still have a lot to learn about frame by frame, but I'll get there eventually.

One of the things that I've had trouble multiple times when I make a cartoon is sound effects. I literally just used to just drag and drop shit onto the timeline and then I'm done. This time around I tried to create and look for higher quality sounds, more variations of sounds, edit the sounds to make them fit better and even record my own sounds. I think I did kinda well this time, but I noticed a lot of the sounds I used sounded kinda similar and they kinda sound repetitie at times, so I probably should work on that. I also tried to make the music for this myself but turns out I couldn't do it, so I just used royalty free music closest to the one I wanted, but it still kinda sounded weird and it kinda doesn't fit quite right. I did the stupid glockenspiel parts though. That music during the dog chase scene though, if I find better music for that, I'll probably change it because it just doesn't fit quite well... or not.


Here's a funny thing, trying to upload this was hell. Since the flash version of this is 30 MBs so I couldnt upload it as a flash movie, I had to upload a video file. So here's why I like uploading a .swf file; If there are any errors, I could easily edit it in flash and since the file size isn't that big, it's easy to upload. So because I'm a fucking idiot, I converted it to a video file before looking for errors and turns out there were errors and so I had to convert it again which takes about 20 minutes or something. So this file is around 177 MB, and since my internet is crap and Newgrounds STILL doesn't have a progress bar, I couldn't tell if the upload died or it just wasn't done. So after it uploaded after 1 hour, I watched the cartoon and turns out there was a BIG error at a point and I don't know how I didn't see it before, so I had to do it all again and holy shit. I'm pretty sure there's still a mistake in this one, but I'm too lazy to correct it.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it.
