New Flash: Funky Turtles

2013-01-24 08:41:27 by Bigfoot3290

Funky Turtles is here!

So, this was my way of getting back into Flash. Lots of experimentation with different art styles and color schemes, and the usual dose of impetuous decisions. I'm feelin' good about this project in the end. Almost forgot how tough Flash was.

Oh and sup, Newgrounds?

Any chance you'll make a collabarate effort with anyone, or perhaps a Flash game?

Bigfoot3290 responds:

i've done a couple of collabs in the past, so yeah i'm open to that. i'm also more interested in making a flash game one day. i have a few ideas floating around, and the market for flash games is continually growing.

Your return won't be a mistake, I will contribute with sprite animations too ^^.

Bigfoot3290 responds:

Cool. Haven't seen too many quality sprite flashes around here in a while.

You really are in the top 5 of my favorite animators. It's really exciting to see that you've returned to Newgrounds.

Looking forward to all of your new projects, and the new animation was fantastic. Had your charm and humor that I've grown fond of. XD

Are you going to still do Sprites? Or solely drawn? A combination?

Bigfoot3290 responds:

Definitely a combo. I'm definitely not the best artist on NG, but for a sprite animator, I can draw pretty well. A lot of people have suggested that I put spriting behind in favor of purely drawn animation, but I honed a lot of my skills as a flash animator by working with sprites, i.e., some of that "charm" you're referring to. I mean, take Funky Turtles for instance: there really isn't a lot of frame-by-frame animation in it, but even so, people watched it and said, "yes, that's a Bigfoot flash." Personality, charm, style...those are the most important elements of any art project, and in flashing it's no different. Even sprites, sticks, and anime, styles that theoretically limit creativity, can be used to great effect to demonstrate your personality simply because you need to reconcile the constraints of each medium in order to create a project that doesn't put people to sleep.

Thanks for the kind words, man. I'll keep at it!

It certainly feels great to see one of my favorite sprite artist return. I've always been a fan of your castle calamity series, and i hope that I, and the rest of the community, can see other additions to it in the future. And, I guess you could say, welcome home.
