DISCLAIMER: At one point in this short I make a little joke about Machinima, I want to make it clear that, I have no problems with Machinima, I'm a Machinima director. I'm not the greatest animator in the world, but my opinion of SOME of the other Machinima animators is quite low, in fact because of how bad their animations are it INSPIRED me to animate, because if they can do it, anyone can.

Anyway, this is just a little animation about me making more animations. So every cartoon I make is essentially part of a series about me becoming a better animator, and potentially befriending other great animators! This was also a little tribute to every animator mentioned in the video, cause you know, I'm "fighting the best to become the best" sort of deal.

And the song at the end is "The Sunlit Earth," from Shadow of the Colossus.

EDIT: Sometimes when the video loads it might zoom in, just right click and "show all." I have no idea why it's doing this now.

For the whole "Animator God" thing, it's not just a matter of skill, it's also experience, and recognition. Your animations are very good. I've seen a lot of them. But, you haven't been here for as long as say, Egoraptor, or Happy Harry, or Redminus. For many people, it's not a matter of skill, but a matter of how long they have been making flashes. You started, what, a year ago? You have made some good vids, but you're not well known enough. Give it time, and you'll get there

You're animation is recognizable, which is very good if you want to be well known, the genre of flashes is also a big plus. There is nothing wrong with parodies, so you can keep doing that if you want.

Thanks! And I only just started in February lol, I know these things take time, so it's a joke that in the animation I would expect to become their friends only after 4 animations :D And I'm enjoying parodying these games, I have original ideas, but I'm saving those for when my animation skillz get better c:

I've been watching a couple of your animations, and to be honest, I think your pretty damn good.
I'm an animator also, though not a Flash animator, I lean towards traditional hand drawn animating, though I'm not that good at it.
So I completely understand this video in that you want to "beat the best to become the best", and Shadow of the Colossus is not only a great game (one of my favourites Evar!) but it's so suited to the idea of this animation! :
That you set out with nothing but your pen, and you hope to take on these majestic, colossal Behemoths to become a greater one yourself.
Well, I hope that you succeed in this. you seem to have the humour down, which is the main selling points in all these popular animators, your animation is pretty good already, and your aspirations are nice and high too. So good luck!

Hah thanks! For the longest time I just hated how Flash animations look, and I wanted to do traditional hand stuff, but I decided to give it a go and it's something I really enjoy doing now. Thanks again :]

I enjoyed this cartoon although it is not as strong as your other ones.
SN: I think MindChamber just ripped you a new one.
