Now the time has come for my revenge!

You fool! The pen is mightier than the sword!

Yes, but only the paper succumbs to the will of the pen! And I, sir, am no paper! And this, sir, is no sword!

(edit) Do yourself a favor and watch it all the way through before voting.

((edit)) Cool! Daily first! I was worried for a second that this flash wasn't going to make the cut. I didn't think one could win an award without the front page. I glad everyone seemed to like it! I kinda ventured from my safety zone with this one, but from the response I got I'm glad I did! Thanks everyone! Well, back to the drawing board..err..tablet!

(((edit))) Sweet! Front Page!

((((Explanation)))) The difference between the time it takes to animate the stick men v.s. the time it took to animate the bullet. It's like difference between killing someone v.s. working things out. Sure the second option takes longer and is more difficult. But the end result is usually better for everyone.

(FINAL EDIT) I'm glad so many of you liked it! I hear alot of people saying It's inspired them to get animating, truth is, I heard that alot from My NewGrounds. These kinds of comments definitely keep me going. If I can inspire just one person I feel like a success. That's what I love about this place, I have the opportunity to inspire entire groups of people. Now get out there and show the world what you are made of!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I just keep watching and watching!

I absolutely love this movie. There is just something about it that makes me watch it over and over again. I haven't felt this drawn to a movie since Lilium; I've been showing everyone! The level of art you've done here is amazing and the contrast between the stick men and the bullet is amazing. Wonderful!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Oh, Artsy!

Nicely done, the contrast between the stickmen and then the bullet getting filled in to moonlight sonata creates a great effect. This movie also give all of us Newgrounders a good message: More art, less pointless violence. 5/5

This is what this site needs more of, good animation that gets the viewer thinking instead of killing brain cells.

that wall

the whole thing seemed like the process of making an idea

after the initial idea is formed

a wall is struck

and thats to find yours

why is your idea worth it

just because its yours?

no because it has to be everybodys but only you can show it

and you gotta find your own way to show it and once you finally do

it is always always a great sucess if you put enough time into it.

just like Mr.Awesome here
