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

I am glad to say that I really enjoyed this music video and understood it well. I loved the color sceme and the attention to the frames. I wish I could add more, but I am at a lost for anything that I can also add. I just really enjoyed it is all I can say.

Very very well done sir/madam!
Are you going to make an eventual full animation of this?
If not, would I be permitted to? I think it's an amazing idea, and you would get credit, of course.

Thank you! ^^
I do plan on making a full animation of this, even though it won't be for a few years due to college and the fact that I have so many other projects going on at once.
I thank you for the very kind offer, but my friend and I are already planning our attack on finishing it. That is very kind of you though <3
