1. 'Sprouting Frog Waves'


    from Antonio Villamandos Added 90 2 0

    This Short was originally animated for the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animators 2014 ( www.ngtournament.com ). The "theme" to follow this time was "Through the eyes of a stranger": and my take was to work on creating an odd environment for a certain stranger... Oh well, maybe there's something else!! This was a pretty experimental short in a few things; mostly in the use of colors and sound; Half of the sounds were actually homemade (it features "chiptune-esque" sounds, ambient and animal sounds, vocal sounds and a harmonica makes an appearance too) SO, I hope your ears enjoy hearing the waving spirals contained within this short. Music is "Through the Cavern" by RoflSandwich : ( http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/577410 ) Also, this work contains additional sound effects from www.freesound.org, created by: nicStage - kmoon - daveincamas under the Creative Commons Atribution license.

    • 'Save The Sock'

      This little surreal cartoon was originally made for the Open Round of the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animators 2014 ( www.ngtournament.com ). All participating animators had around 2-3 weeks to make an animation under the theme of "The Most Important Mission". This one was roughly animated within 3 days of work for its original submission. After that, I took an additional day to make some adjustments and sound effects. The "plot" was so absurd that I looked for an old 'ragtime' track -Dill Pickles Rag- (now public domain, phew) to reinforce that, recalling old cartoons. ENJOY.

        A curious automaton wanders through the helix-circuits of his unpredictable magnetic brain. Made originally for the (bi-monthly) Loopdeloop challenge ( www.loopdeloop.org ) , about making an animated loop inspired by the word "TWIST". I tried this relatively complex idea of a twisting 'Moebius-strip-like' path, which took days to make considering the perspective of the rotating robot. The music, this time, was recorded with a harmonica! ENJOY. ---- Un curioso autómata deambula a través de los circuitos helicoidales de su cerebro magnético. Hecho originalmente para el "challenge bi-mensual" de Loopdeloop ( www.loopdeloop.org ) , esta vez con el tema de "TWIST". La música, en esta ocasión fue grabada caseramente con una armónica. ENJOY.

          Photon Frogs! An unusual and confusing leap on "alternative energy". On a relatively unrelated note, frogs can actually see and distinguish photons. ( source www.youtube.com/watch?v=cztocb… ) //Made for the bi-monthly LOOPDELOOP ( www.loopdeloop.org ) Challenge, with the theme of LIGHT. Here I tried to experiment as much as possible with light (and "blending modes" in flash) and a slightly more 'elaborated' camera movement.

              "The quest for an unpredictable sword" This short animation was originally made for the Novice round at the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animators (NATA 2013). Each of the monthly rounds of the tournament had a different theme, and the challenge this time was to pick one (or more) from the four songs presented at the beginning of the round and make an animation based on "expressing the mood" of the track(s). I began working with the track 'Waiting' , which I found really good at building a tense atmosphere. Then I had to make a "second part" including additional tracks to continue from that point. The original animation was submitted around May 2013. This is a small update (Fixing some bits of sound, animation and visual aspects). Music (in order of appearance) Stunkel - Waiting ( http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/528897 ) Koori Kun - Temple of Darkness ( http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/328932 ) Step - The Adventurer ( http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/528993 )
