THANK YOU ALL FOR THE INPUT ON THIS ANIMATION! I have another (not good) animation that needs some desperate critique (lol, not all my animations can be like this one), and I would love any constructive crit on that one - ANYTHING helps, and negative is encouraged :)

Remember - any good input in that video helps me continue with this one ;)

ALSO, I WILL be adding a preloader and make it not loop, but it will have to wait until finals are over in a few weeks. Thank you for the suggestion on that!


This was created for my Advanced Drawing class. I was given the task to simply tell a story. I decided to take it further than just a few images and created the backbone to an animation: a storyboard. That being said, this is the reason the drawings are so simple/messy. I needed to get them all done in only a month, so I only had time to do the sketches. Hopefully in the future it will become a full animation ^^ And yes - this is my first attempt at this :)

Throughout the whole process I learned new things, which can be seen in the images themselves (the quality basically changes from image to image). But the top 3 important things I learned were these:

1. Don't edit a video in one night/for 12 hours straight (even though the sunrise was pretty).
2. If you're going to save your layers, then DON'T FLATTEN THE IMAGE YOU IDIOT!
3. Running sequences need to die.

Over the summer I plan on doing some more storyboards set to the music of Florence and the Machine, specifically "My Boy Builds Coffins".

Time taken: 150 hours (including illustrations not here)
Total frames: 304

Rated 5 / 5 stars

it really shows that no matter what differences someone has that they can love each other and reach each other if they are meant to love each other


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I really loved the drawings a lot, it all looked like painting, very natural, plus I love the song a ton. Story was cute, overall it's pretty beautiful.

But since this is more like a slideshow of pictures or an animatic and not like a finished cartoon, I sadly cannot really give it a high rating. It would be perfect for some place like deviantART though. I would really love this a lot if it was fully animated.

Lotsa talent anyway, though, nice job.
