Welcome to the "In My Arms Collab." This collaboration was an effort created by Sean Ruediger, as he grouped up his favorite artists from the Aura-Core, and also got help from a few other known artists on Newgrounds.com.

This collab is a beautiful piece, and expresses the more serious side of collabs, rather than 2-hour time trials, or just gibberish. This suppose to show the purpose of bringing out the more serious side of artists on Newgrounds, rather than comedy bits involving Super Mario, or anything of that sort.

Our goal was to complete a piece with one color scheme, and adapt it using various art techniques to apply shade, and texture to our artwork and animation. This challenge was faced by using cross-hatch and other art techniques, which made this collab rather unique in it's own way.

It's a very personal, and heart-filled collaboration, as I created it dedicated to someone dear to me. Mogly has also put his heart and soul into his piece as well. We are inspired to make more meaningful collaborations on the site, and hope to do so sometime in the near future.

Taking about 3 months, this collab has been concluded and faced it's time in the portal. I hope you enjoy the outcome of this. We faced a few problems, which included surgery, pain, and waiting on people to finish their work -- but the outcome is quite beautiful, and I'm proud to work with the artists I have with this collab.

Thank you everyone for taking part in this collab. Thank you the whole crew, but mostly, Thank you the Aura-Core for making this possible; Tarienn for special FX and intro, GatekeeperGirl for her amazing animation skills, as well as Jeinu for his two submissions he entered in this as well, which were beautiful. Also, I can't forget Theo-Art's for his amazing work as well!

It's such an honor to release such a serious piece, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

People who took part;
Andy-Parker, AtomicNoodle, KartuneHustla, Jeinu, Tarienn, Tystarr, Theo-Art, Gate-Keeper-Girl, KartMan, Five-Iron, Mogly, NathanielMilburn and Osuka.

Thank you Winterwind-NS for the intro music as well.

///Thank you for Front Page, and Daily 2nd! :)

ahh

its was nice, the colors and story of it but some of the animation could have been better, or atleast the humas, they had some large mouths like they looked like caveman but i enjoyed the toon, it was pretty good. javascript:submission_controller.GetR eviewController().SaveReview();

Amazing

A collab can never go wrong when you got Aura-Core in the picture :D
Heck the intro itself is awesome, and that goes without a doubt cuz it seems that Tarienn's skills improve every time he designs one.

Jeinu's art and animation was insane as always. Dude I wanna pay you for some flash lessons! :P
Theo and Gate-Keeper-Girl are awesome too (not gonna leave you out) :D

Great work, I'd love to see more.

Looked great, had an strong storyline full of meaning (if that's makes any sense :3 )
it was all in time and in sync.
I hope you feel as though you have succeeded in passing the message on in this flash, because you have :D
Very well done.
