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

Wow just wow.
Even for a storyboard I find this art (that is what it is. this (in my opinion) is not a flash) nearly impossible to describe much less praise because I cannot put my thoughts into words worthy enough to describe such a masterpiece.
I truly believe in my heart that this does not need praise.
I have not found anything on the same plane as this art.
you know when art is legendary when simply looking at it is enough to instantly clear your mind of any and all thoughts.
If anyone tries to compare to this art to their art they must first understand that it is not possible to compare perfection to anything but itself.
This is as perfect as anything will ever get in my opinion.
The art and music perfectly tie in with each other
Damn your good.
Keep up the great work.
Personally I do not think Five out of Five stars is a rating fit for this art (as perfection can not be described as anything but what it is, perfection.) but since that is how the rating system works (at the moment) I will have to do.

I can and will never be able to say anything more to praise such a masterpiece of such perfection.
