This animation is about facing your barriers. In what ever you want to achieve. All the things that may hold you back.You have to know your limits or weaknesses, turn around and confront them. In my case it was laziness, lack of motivation and so I represented this as rust, (you get rusty when you don't use your talents).So I tried to confront it by animating more.

This animation helped me break this rust literally too. So whatever it is ; disbelief, lack of confidence, others telling you you cant do it, challenges. If your truly determined you can reach your potential by just confronting these things. Everyones capable of achieving so much in life, but they never think they can. Make use of your talents, your light, your true potential and be determined whatever it may be, all it takes is the determination to sacrifice and give all you have until you reach your goal.

As you improve and get stronger, so will the challenges in front of you get bigger,stronger, but overcoming these bigger challenges is what brings true joy.It is when we grow.

Even if you don't reach your goal exactly. You'll live a life without regrets. I hope you can see this. This was inspired by a famous Poem.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others."

-Marianne Williamson

Hey i just got to say i was starting to become disappointed with the videos being added to new ground but your video did away with that. This video is one of the best animations i have seen in a while the only issue was some of the moments of lag in it idk if that had to do with the editing maybe you could fix it and resubmit.

But anyway great animation, you included aspects from diffident games and anime's and the fighting style was excellent.

thank you very much please keep up the great work and never listen to anyone who puts down stick animation, just because they have a simple look does not mean it is easy to animate i challenge anyone how says its easy to make their own stick video and make it as good as this one.

Dude, what you have just done is something that I can hardly put into words, and I'm normally very good with a lot of the sort; but this flash has got to be one of the most magnificent pieces of epic that I have ever seen, and probably will see for the rest of my unnatural life. I wish that some day I will be able to do even a fraction of what this flash was for me, and when I finally do I will be sure that every bit of inspiration and hope is reflected back onto you in my work.

P.S. This is my first ever review in what has to be years, and by god, you effin deserved it. Keep up the good work, I see a bright future for you, and hell maybe its already come and this is old news. Either way, good luck to you ^_^
