This is my tribute to the composer Eric Whitacre. His music has changed my life, and so, while this is my most beautiful piece, it is really just ornamentation to his music. This will be my last contribution to Newgrounds. Please enjoy.

not bad pretty good animation. and HAcoreRD how stupid do you have to be to tell us what happens? at least tell us of a spoiler alert fucking dumbass.

Drakonais responds:

LOL I'm glad it was good enough to be spoiled.

there's a deep meaning

i don't understand the deep meaning. basically Sarah (the main character's girlfriend) died for whatever reason. In sleep he relived the painful memory of his last convorsation with her. In 1 hand was her necklace. in the other was a tiny knife. He cut his wrists so he could go with her to the great beyond. But I don't exactly see why.

Drakonais responds:

One of many layers of this onion, my friend, although you got deeper than most of Newgrounds.

((( SAD )))

That was a very sad movie, but it was done really well to show all those emotions in it. The animations in this were really nice, and i like how you drew the character in the bed. The sound was really beautiful, and i liked how it went nice with the emotion in this...


Drakonais responds:

There were further things I wanted to do artistically, but I pretty much suck at drawing. It was the music and the concept I was going for.

One of the most moving NG peices I have ever seen...

It's so heartfelt and sad =(

Imagining myself in that story... *sigh* I can feel the pain!

It's beautiful, and brilliant choice of music.


Drakonais responds:

I'm glad it moved you so much, I put a lot of heart into this. Tell your friends about Eric Whitacre, he has CDs and is amazing.

I think it's absolutely beautiful, so I don't understand why this is your last piece of art for Newgrounds.
Might I add that those blue eyes were wonderful.

Drakonais responds:

I just don't have the time or energy at this point in my life to indulge any more of my artistic urges. I'm glad you liked it, though. Oh, and I used the blue eyes in my other submission My Immortal first. You should check it out.
