A sort of spiritiual sequel to The String, which can be viewed here. /portal/view/550484

It's an allegory of sorts, but I've decided to leave it's interpretation more up to the viewers this time around instead of imposing my own explanation onto it. I hope you enjoy.

Feel free to check out my other art as well.

I didn't even realize this made the front page. I was wondering why this was getting so much attention all of the sudden. Thanks a lot guys.

I like this style of animation. The colors, the textured flicker effect, the decision to not use black borders on everything, etc. Did you draw everything in Flash? I'd love to see a source file or tutorial with this kind of animation and drawing. Do you know of any?

Yeah I did everything in Flash. The flickering effect was used by taking a large texture and chopping it up 4 different ways, then looping that over top of everything.

Without any direction, without any meaning..... and at the end, what does it worth.

Hah, I wish you guys were here the day I posted it. The score has jumped like 8 points in one day. Glad to see it's getting some late love.

You are a great animator!

I also love your illustration style. If you make more videos like this I would be so happy and rate them all 5/5 and 10/10, like I did on this one. Keep up the good work!

As soon as i saw your art on your art page i knew your style would work well in an animation and i was right! Really cool looking! This deserves a way higher score dont pay attension to the currentscore- just know you're very talented!

gopherguy responds:

Thanks. I honestly thought this would do a bit better than it did too, but I'm still happy with the front page my last one received, so I don't mind so much. Plus, there's always next time.
