Restless [New Soundtrack]

♫ Music Video ♫: https://youtu.be/qCkMQye9kR8 . Been awhile as always since I posted a large project, but here is one that was meant to be a small project that turned into a large one [Oh one thing if you @ Pixilart, I will unfollow you if I’m not already – PLEASE do not @ Pixilart on my art, it is an irrational pet peeve of mine but I hate it]. I originally wanted this drawing and soundtrack to be out on Halloween but welp, you know how that went, it didn’t happen. So ten days later I hope you’re still in costume because here it is. I cannot remember precisely how long this took me to make, but I think I started it maybe 3 or 4 days before Halloween, so I think this drawing took me over the course of 13 to 14 days to make. The palette I made had 15 colours, but I only ended up using 14 of them. Animation is frames long and believe me, the fire was tricky to do, and so was the refraction of light on the surrounding objects. The “cabin in the woods” [Lol if you get the reference] was probably the most fun thing to draw in this project. I apologize to pixel purist who hate the I used a form of dither for the stars haha. At first, I was recording myself as I worked on this, but the footage ended up becoming more than movie maker could load in a reasonable time so I had to scrap it. The song itself, I believe uses 7 instruments, and I actually started working on it a month and a half ago, but came back to it recently. Pretty fun to work on. One thing I do think I could’ve done better that I was just too lazy to redo at that point, was create a bit more variation in the ground level area where I awkwardly line dithered dirt: the stone texture is probably more appealing.

Thanks for reading if you read all of that, and I hope you enjoy the animation :)

Sometimes that's the best way to draw. Either way though, it looks great! ^-^

Omg Sorry for not seeing this - Thank you a ton Bluemask - the cabin was actually the first thing I drew in this - and tbh I had no set idea in my mind for how it'd look - I just went with the flow on it haha

Well dang diddly ding dong I'm surprised I didn't see this before! The colors are fabulous (as always). I think my favorite parts of this drawing are the stars and the cabin. A very nice drawing to look at, Fleja! Love it as always ^-^

Haha - untrue. My art makes no statement about anyone else except myself. It doesnt make anyone look bad or good, your path for art is yours alone: dont see this and get discouraged, that's not what i draw for. Work on improving your own style and getting better at what you enjoy making :)

m y C O M M E N t G O t D E ll E T. Well i said the only solution from there would be to add more individual frames, but you already spent so much hard work on it, it's not worth complaining about anymore.

doesnt work like that. and I myself am ok with the 50ms speed. I accept criticism, but i do maintain my preferences. In this case it is a matter of preference, not what is artisticly incorrect: opinion

Alternate frames between 50 and 100 ms - it looks relatively smooth.

yeah, but 100ms looks bad on this. 50ms looks good on this when the resolution is smaller - check pixeljoint. but on here since the pixels are so large and stretched it does look annoying to some. On here Id need a speed between 50ms, and 100ms, but such a speed does not exist - so I picked the lesser of the two evils and there you have it

wait i meant 3 50ms frames to get 150ms frames

wheeze im so o r r y d ude i didn't see that comment. When I try to get the right speeds, I just duplicate the frames and do some math or something. Like get 5 10ms frames to get 50ms frames, but it get super cluttered after a while.
