Hi,

I made this in dedication to a girl that I love and to the whole world as well. I want people to know that Valentine's Day is about showing your sincerity in love and it's fine if you have or had failed in relationship, it does not mean the end of the world.

But know that humans can be fragile at times, sometimes we tend to back down because we are fear of losing, fear of the unknown or anything. But if you took a step forward, you will at least gain something.

Last but not least, Happy Valentine's Day everyone.

P/S:
This is a rough animation which has not been refined yet due to last minute work. But I'd like this to be shared on the very day, so I had used some other way around and redefining its art direction. I will find some time to refine and repost it under this same title. I hope you could show your support in its content.

Another remark I would like to add, the quotes I got for this animation were picked by me from the net. They maybe cliches, powerful or left unnoticed, but nothing beats the sincerity of one's heart. This animation can be categorized as expressionist animation. I hope it gives as variety in NG.

Yours sincerely,
einstei

Err...

I couldn't enjoy it. I'm sorry, man. I was really trying, but I couldn't.

The artwork was fantastic, though. Despite being black and white (which I assume to be intentional), the proportions were very well done, and I'm grateful that you didn't turn it into an anime style (at least too much). There was too much detail to be shown, and you really pulled through on that. I also loved the little film grain you put over it.

The music was both cliche and unappealing. While it was a better selection than most other candidates, I found myself annoyed by it. Not only that, but there were no voices or sound effects. A voice to go along with it would have given it a very human element.

Lastly is the concept. While it was a valiant effort, it failed. Your comments on it summed up a few of the quotes pretty well: Cliche. While you say nothing can beat the sincerity of one's heart, I would think of sincerity best defined through phrases you wrote yourself. The canned lines were really bad.

Overall, the graphics were very good, but I found everything else to be lacking. I'd suggest you leave these side distractions and piece together Gen X: Chapter 2.

This video reminds me of my own failure in love. The guy was a sophmore and I was a senior. We were great friends, but I was afraid that he would reject me and that our relationship would be damaged by that. Also, I knew that once I graduated, we would probably never see eachother again.

So I let him slip away, and I shall regret it for the rest of my life. Every time I think about him, I feel the hole in my heart, and wonder when or even if, I'll find a replacement.
