*June 2011 Update

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!

Quite deep

It seems like you should have put more animation into this story. It is just more like something that would be better up on a blog or some website about horror stories. Still, I can not blame you because you did manage to throw in some good visuals while telling a story. The best bit of animation is at the end when you see the skeleton through his body. It's not much, but it actually does show that you have artistic talent. The music was also really good in this.

You do know how to create a good atmosphere as it was certainly creepy. As for the story itself, it was fairly good even if it was a bit too typical. The strongest part of it is probably the wording. You know how to talk colorfully and put detail into your work. One thing that I was always taught in writing class was how important it was to show rather than tell.


Amazing and so sad


I loved it, truly poetic!!!


I really liked this.


That was great! I love the poem, you have some real good talent and potential :)
You should make an animation comic for it, that'd be great :)
