**Thanks to Tom for the .mp4 upload function! (If you have an error it is on your end, works fine on mine and others :( )

After months of preproduction and even more months of animating, backgrounds, color, effects, and clean up, my senior thesis for the University of the Arts is complete.

A hypernova in a distant galaxy sent a meteor filled with powerful, extremely rare Dark Matter to Earth. Ecilpse Force, consisting of the arrogant, Sun-powered Sol and the intelligent Moon-fueled Luna, must secure the meteorite for safe extracton. However, their mission is quickly interrupted by a shadowy man by the name of Cygnus, who uses black hole powers to absorb energy around him. If he absorbs Dark Matter, nothing on Earth will stand in his way.

Eclipse Force, time to rock!

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I was going to write a review about the lack of story but if it's just for a university senior thesis then it's fine. Great art style, Comedy is good but not exactly TV cartoon style comedy (which is fine). Voice's were good, Overpowered characters does make animating fight scenes a whole lot easier lol

Overall the animation is good but the fact it doesn't have a story and the characters a way too overpowered (if it had a story to explain why the characters are so damn powerful then it would be fine) makes me give the it 3.5 stars
But I would give you 4/5 as an animator :)

That was a power packed, solar flaring, star starring, galactic eclipse of...AWESOMENESS!!! Totally worth the exposure to radiation. I've always looked up to you, since I was 12... I'm taking classes at Tri-c this fall, and this..... this epic animation.... is the reason I want to get a degree in graphic arts illustration and ...bah cartooning and stuff... I've never felt more inspired to improve my skills..... Me and my friends watch your animations almost as if it were a tradition. Chakra-X, you are indeed my only role model when it comes to flash... I'm gonna grab a pack of Sunny D and watch this again!

I sincerely thank you for this. Cartoons on this website inspired me to pursue animation as a hobby, then in college, and now as a career. Keep getting better and making what makes you happy. And even if you make stuff that isn't you favorite at least you are improving. Good luck to you future work and thanks!
