cartoon music video thing!

or whatever you want to call it.

HERE is the link




yes this is what i have been working on among other things. Cartoon for my friend's song album coming out. Tried to do literal interpretations of the lines, since hip hop is a lot of metaphors etc. its kind of NSFW if you are watching from there. I will try to have the censored youtube version up next week sometime after i get the exporting issues taken care of, in the meantime. enjoy the uncensored version. If you are easily offended or whatever then wait patiently for the youtube. you know. gotta keep it kosher or something



here are some stills from the video......................































Animating girls dancing is really difficult. I still want to do a better job. Coloring takes a long time. I'm saving up for a cintiq so i can work 10 times faster and make cartoons faster. Brown rice is cheap and you can eat a lot of it. A good food cost saver. I need to find cool elves to help me color my cartoons.


remember 08 is for cartoons. 08 is coming to an end. lets go out with a bang and i'm not talking suicide buddies! NYUK NYUK!!!


more cartoons on the way. i just gotta work work work on them.





big thanks to all the support. big thanks to CHRIS ALLISON for continued support.


Hopefully the Dummcomics people don't hate me. getting back to comics Asap.

The animation on the black girl towards the end was really nice. Keem em coming.

Kevin Langley said...

Great job David. Nice dance animation especially the quick bit of the juice right near the end. I'm off to watch it again.

Jay D Smith said...

Katie said...

This video is so cool David!! Can I plug it on my blog? Purdy please?

david gemmill said...

jack - thanks buddy!!

kevin - thanks!!!! yeah i put in that dance scene last minute cause i wanted to add more. i am glad it payed off, i regret not doing it longer, but man animating dancing is hard! hahaa. i was standing in front of the mirror trying to study what dance moves look like.

Jay D - thanks!!

Katie - Thanks! yeah you can post it on your blog if you really want to! hahah

Todd Oman said...

Pretty sweet, when the hell did you do all this?

alexis Celic said...

ddddddavidddd sooooo goooooooddd!!! man you work fast.

*daisy said...

Great job!! : D It looks fantastic- some really great animation in there... how long did this take you? I think you did a great job on all the girls and dancing parts... (i totally was wondering if was your music until the end credits too!)

: D

Deemo said...

Great stuff as always. Im no elf, but if you ever need help coloring id help you out.

Billy said...

Very great stuff (but what do you have against nintendo? lol) Can't wait to see more.

Anonymous said...

If you ever get a show this would be the perfect opening sequence. You could develop this into a cartoon variety show showcasing shorts with all your characters, and that purple cup being the mascot.

Heath Kenny said...

thats the funniest thing I've seen for a long time. I'll be sure to watch that again and again. Nice work dude. HK

Marlo Meekins said...

wow that was hilarious!

potato farm girl said...

Holy cow that was amazing! Do you thumbnail your animation out or just kinda wing it? The animation was very spontaneous!

Lion_0 said...

Man that vid is sooo cool. I'm soo glad i got to see the uncensored version and thanks to Todd for showing me your blog. I look forward to seeing what you do next. Shoot i sound like a fanboy....F@#$ it as long as I'm no hater :P

THAT WAS DOPE, BUT I GOTTA WATCH IT 10 MORE TIMES SO I CAN CATCH EVERYTHING, BUT WHAT I DID CATCH THE FIRST TIME AROUND WAS KOOL...

GREAT BALLSACK CAT CAMEO...

Thad said...

I love titties! Nice job!

Looney Moon Cartoons said...

YES!!! That was amazing! You have a real talent for jiggle. Sweet sweet jiggling asses.

Anonymous said...

Us black girls don't have pink nipples... just saying.

Ryan G. said...

That was great bud! Nice dancing with the music! Looked like a lot of work..great job!

Nico said...

DAVID

hilarious!!! that was insanely awesome. And every shot of chicks dancing was brilliantly animated. you get a GOLD STAR my friend

Sean said...

dude, that was awesome! Such a feel good video! Loved tha dancing girls, they were super appealing, wish they were on for longer though! And the dancing juisce at the end was great! Really fun and funny. Great job David!

David Germain said...

Well done, sir. That was super cartoony with no apologies. Don't you DARE censor this thing into some lame PG-13 mess. It's great as is.

david gemmill said...

daisy - thanks!! i think it took me like 3 weeks although i am not sure. it started out pretty ruff, then i added a little more.

deemo - thanks dude!! I would feel bad to let your talent go to waste coloring my petty inbetweens. haha. thats what elves are for i think. haha

billy - thanks! i think the nintendo thing is an inside joke. i actually like mario kart and nba jam for snes.


anonymous - thanks dude!! i am working on getting a show, although i am not sure it would be a variety show. That would be the ideal though.

heath - thanks man!!!


marlo - thanx beb!


brianne (sorry i think i spelled your name wrong) it depends on the scene. sometimes i do straight ahead, although i am pretty lousy draftsmen so it will be kind of wobbly and not 100% solid. then i will go back in the straight ahead animation and fix it up.

other times i will key stuff out. Some of the dances were done straight ahead. the first half, then to make the cycles i basically copy the other half. kind of similar to a walk or run cycle. I hope that makes sense.


lionel - thanks dude! todd tells me you do some pretty crazy drawings. hahaha

albert - thanks man! i am glad you noticed the ballsack cat. hahaha i hope others noticed it too.


thad - thanks!!


looney moon - thanks dude!i try. i actually studied girl dances on youtube. its kind of hard to get it down though without being able to still frame it. it moves so fast.

anonymous - hahahah yes i know. sorry. actually its just economic coloring trying to limit the amount of colors per character to color them faster. so pink lips, pink nipples, pink eyeshadow. etc.


ryan - thanks dude. i did have my work cut out for me! hahaha


nico - thanks buddy! dude i really wish i could have a gold star like the ones in first grade. those were some awesome stickers. shiny luster of success


sean - thanks dude!! i wanted to do more dancing girls but i was trying to get it done faster. hahah and not spend TOOO much time on it cause i have other shit to do (cough dumm comics cough. hahahaha) but thanks dude. I hope i will get to do some more studying/animating of girls in my future projects, cause it is both challenging and fun.

david - thanks! i am gonna try to keep the censoring only to the shit that would incite a flagging on youtube. i.e. make it very minor. hahaah

thanks again everyone for watching.

i am working on more cartoon projects that i will hopefully have done soon... and hopefully you will all enjoy.

:O)

tek! said...

we had to wait so long for it

jack raffin said...

david:
YOU ARE THE FUCKEN MAN!

love the animation, the rhythm, the babes. hilarious. the idea of literal images to metaphors = great. enjoyable. (please, someone tell the name of that tex avery catoon where did the same to 'bop speak'.)

fuck the haters.

from a fan: keep em coming, enjoying every moment, every frame.

again, you the man.

chrisallison said...

just one hit in a long line of multiple hits. man, people are eating up your stuffing when you still got the turkey in the oven, and other tricks down your pants.

you're like the snake charmer, blowing into the pencil and making cartoons come out of the deep dark hole they're hiding in. lead us, cartoon moses. lead us to entertainment.

Michael J. Ruocco said...

Some of the best flash animation I've seen in a long time! Great work, especially on the dancing & girl stuff. Very fluid, bouncy & appealing stuff (besides the boobage, which is always appealing in it's own right). Once again, fantastic job!

aaron said...

wow awesome, and lots of boobs and butts too! hells yes.

Corey said...

COOL !

hahaha! rock on!

Andy said...

Sorry if I'm commenting on things that have already been said! Don't have enough time to read all 33 comments.

Anywho... THE VIDEO WAS THE BEST THING YOU'VE EVER F*@#ING MADE!!!!!!!!!

It must have been really fun to make! Music videos are great because you can do anything you want.. Hahaha. Or so I've observed.

The girls were smoking, and funny!

Each character actually seemed "real"... Like, I could imagine a backstory for each of them hahaha.

Oh yeah, and the last scene (I think it was the last... the bedroom scene with the girls and the drink) was beautiful. The colours, poses, setup... amazing!

You're too awesome.

Ryan Kramer said...

David, that shit was fantastic! Totally fun to watch. We gotta write some rhymes together!!

Mitch L said...

The girls are great!

Nice animation!

Dor Isaac said...

Hi, I enjoyed the video a lot, but I have to wonder why have nudity and intercourse? Could have been just as funny without these bits, and you'd have a wider audience. I know I'm being a censor here, but I'm not coming from the "think of the children" angle. People would be more comfortable viewing the video and sending it to their friends if it didn't have racy content.
The cat with the huge, puffy mouth was really funny, I think more gags and less fucking would have done the video good.
With that out of the way, great job!

Jack, it's Symphony in Slang.

jack raffin said...

right. thanks germain. it was by avery, right?

Kali Fontecchio said...

Everything is so fluid- very cool!

Pedro Vargas said...

Goddamn that was great, David! It was really fun to watch! The way you animate is hilarious! Really awesome job on this, man!! I like the houses smoking joints and the smoke comes out of their chimneys. It's a really good visual!

ivan ives said...

finally! good thing you copyrighted everything :)

Trevour said...

That was flippin' fun, man! Great work, funny drawings and really awesome animation. And lots of colorful goodness. Congrats!!!

Marc Deckter said...

Great work man! Rap lyric metaphors being translated into cartoons is long overdue! "Symphony in Slang" style.

That cartoon was hot like the chick who used to play Punky Brewster.

More! More! More!

Hammerson said...

Holy crap, that was f*ckin' awesome! I saw it already many times and never got tired of it. Great animation and design, also everything's really well integrated with song and rhythm.
You're my hero!!!

James Sutton said...

Finally someone on Newgrounds with some talent...

That rocked hard.

patrick said...

Loved it! What FPS is it?

Nico said...

my juice is now loose

Kenny P. said...

That was so good!!! It was nice to see Ballsack Cat, too!
And, thanks for the thanks at the end! Proud to be a part of it.

James Sutton said...

I watched everything on your Newgrounds profile and loved it.

So tell me more about yourself, Mr.Gemill.

Chris Battle said...

Awesome. You truly are the shit, my friend.

Justin said...

Really smooth animation, especially loved the movements on all the girls! Can't wait to see what awesome stuff you come up with on your new cintiq.
