For anyone interested in watching more of my recent dark animations and artwork visit my website at:



Collaboration of ideas between me and my mate

The tail of a man who wished for eternal life...with one draw back when under the gaze of the moonlight.

We had been making a few character poems a while back and i felt this one needed to be animated to help show what i was imagining. The character i designed is also in an animation set i made so check that out too www.darkgaruda.deviantart .com

I'm pretty useless when it comes to poetry so my mate did that while i did the rest

You may need to replay this once for reading the poem, and after to see the details i added heh

for the full version of the poem erm i have it somewhere but if you're interested ah whatever...i had to cut some it up so, hope it makes sense and hope you can read it...enjoy!

-Killswitch Engage: 'My Last Serenade'
-Silent Hill - 'Main Theme'
-Silent Hill 2 - 'Stairs of Fire'

I agree with moldboy

This was excellent. I think you could do so much more with this piece. It's twisted and dark, and can shock many if played the right way.

Such potential

Terrific concept, moody music, spectacular artwork, beautifully dark feel, and well-written poetry. But I didn't like it.

You guys really seem to have a good thing going with the poetry/animation mix, which is why I was so disappointed to find that, while the poem was entertaining, the animation itself was nothing more than a well-drawn guy... walking. I think, since you're so good at animation, you should make a real animation. Keep the poem the way it is, and do a full-fledged animated short to match. This really has potential for a darkly beautiful masterpiece. Don't let it go to waste.

You two are talented

I use to write poems myself, so I really enjoyed this one here. Although you cut out some parts of it, the story is told in a very good way. What else could I say - oh, I want to add some of my poetry skills: "From his first step into life till he takes his last breath, a man can never be gifted what his heart wants to have." (thanks for reading ^^) I hope you and your mate are going to produce more stuff like this.

DarkGaruda responds:

hey thanks man. Good lil bit of poetry you got goin too :) You can kind of look at this as a beginning. We're both off to uni but will hopefully be making stuff like this in the mean time.
