Gift of Ages is an animation I made in about a week and a half for my church's Christmas program.

Ah, there's so much to say about this one, but I somehow feel that explaining it will make it weaker. I should hope that the piece is strong enough to stand on its own without my having to prop it up with words.

And so for some of you I might have ruined Christmas. But to everyone else, I hope you've enjoyed this presentation and that it brings new meaning to the secular symbols we see annually.

Programs used: Flash 8, openCanvas, 3D Studio Max, and Sound Forge. All 3D work was done by my brother Brian (thanks!), and the music is Chopin's Etude in E major Op.10 No.3, as heard in the OST for Fullmetal Alchemist.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

yes lytzhadow you are right

mostly about the fact that christian religion did "steal" a lot of ideas from other religions and cultures to do just that, but this flash i think deserves at least a whole 9 "beacuase" (axeman13) the entire idea behind this flash is original and very good.

P.S. "Dot Dot Dot" is a hilarious flash and will explain "beacuase"


Rated 5 / 5 stars

great work

I agree with lytzhadow that charismas along with other holidays is stolen and were joined together into the religion to help convert christens Nicholas Claus was a German saint if I remember right as well as a pagan. This animation was great a must watch and very intimate for its reason. However like lytzhadow I will most likely be wrote off as useless cause on Newgrounds if you do not just agree for an animation all the viewers will criticize you, but that comes with the territory of the teens who are the peer of this site. congratz 10/10 from a fellow Christian, not that I disagree I simply know truth.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This was amazing!

I really hope one day you will come back to NewGrounds and be an animator here again...

I'll be waiting till' that day, you are STILL one of the most skilled animators in this whole website! All your animations are beautiful and have earned 10/10 each time!

PS. Don't listen to lytzhadow, he pretty much just said that your animation deserves a '7' because you're christian. He's an idiot don't listen to him.
