The long overdue follow-up to my last submission:
.:The Dream:.

For site resrtictions, I had to optimize this file down to under 5MB, for the higher resolution version of this animation, go to:

This piece is actually the opening title sequence for a full 30 minute short, featuring The Go-Man. Rest assured, the wheels are already in motion and there will be more submissions soon... and you won't have to wait another 3 years for it!

:: EDIT ::
3 Years has gone by and I do apologize for those who have eagerly awaited another animation. The story itself is still something very close to me, but life being what it is and circumstances being what they are, I have found myself at a point where I work on the story in a different capacity, right now... in writing. I hope you have enjoyed watching this animation and I hope you continue to enjoy it as much as I have making it. And when the next animation arises, I hope you will enjoy it then as well.

Thank you for your support,

Great animation. This seems to have all the classic comicbook hero qualities: good guy who could be a badass against a growing team of super criminals. And, of course, what's a super hero going to do if he can't leap from rooftop to rooftop? I would like to see some of the powers of both sides in some intense battle scene.

... Your general animation style is very unnerving, you mix extremely high quality animation and drawings with significantly lower stuff, as well as mixing completely different styles of drawings (there was some hand drawn stuff there that looked very strange) and it's specially weird to see 3D buildings mixed in with 2D animation in the manner that's done in this cartoon (reminds me a lot of the 90's Spiderman cartoon). It's not necessarily a bad thing, but, as I said before, it's unnerving.
The animation "frame rate" also seems to change during the clip, sometimes "100% smooth", other times "Speed Racer smooth", which also leads to a very different style than average. But, truth be told, all-in-all that was very, very good, rivaling with some of the best flash animation out there.
For the rest, the general sound quality was high (good voice acting + music, though some effects would have been nice, albeit unnecessary in a introduction), the flow was also good, but the premise and story seemed a bit, well, clich... On second thoughts, I can't really judge the story and premise since this is a small clip and it just wouldn't be fair. =]
So, in conclusion, nicely done, that very good stuff, even though I did find it somewhat unnerving.
