A few years ago, I wrote a little tune called 'Sad Penguin'. I recently discovered it again, and decided to remake it (in GarageBand). Then I got carried away and decided to make an animation to go with it (although I adapted the tune a bit to fit with the animation). This is it!
Orignally there was a sad ending, but after seeing it so many times (during the animating process) I got really depressed, so I changed it to have this ending. Now I think I went too far the other way, but I can't be bothered to change it again.
I drew each frame in MSPaint (yes, each frame, there's about 1400 of them). Some of the hardest parts are probably the bits you wouldn't notice unless I pointed them out, e.g. the bubbles when he falls into the water. I was trying out an animation technique of colouring him in by scribbling, but doing it for each frame so that it constantly changes. In retrospect it was probably a bad idea, because it doesn't look particularly good and made a lot more work for me! I put it all together in Windows Movie Maker. I got the sound effects from 'Klik and Play' - the same program I used to help make this animation;

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
