@01:54This really makes me think of when I played cards with my big bro when he got lonely to try and cheer him up XD I also always wore black back then. This is beautiful good job.

@00:35Ah yes it's because those are just darkened pencil lines. I was originally gonna ink it with pen, but it took too long. Maybe it's a good thing I didn't then :P

@02:33Yeah around that part. For some reason, I felt he was already death to begin with, but I never expected looking the same as the person who's about to die. Which I find unique.

NB: Best viewed HD coz otherwise you get this random band at the bottom.

My uni major work!
I can identify most of what is wrong with it: bad plot, bad direction, inconsistent drawing, flat animation, lazy titles... but hey, I finished it, and I've learnt a lot, and I will make better work in the future.

^me pretending to be an optimist

Process outlined somewhere among the ruins of [link]
But basically I did this homemade animation equipment thing (that totally did my back in), scanned in my frames to Photoshop, and put it all together in After Effects. Except for a couple of shots I animated in Flash coz I got lazy. :D

@02:36I did think it was really cute that he..death..whoever he was hugged him like that.
Hugged him...to kill him.
