I Commend Mike Inel for animating it. Oh, and Ticklemnstr, While it is Mike's work, this isn't his Newgrounds account, he doesn't have one.

don't steal from people, prick

this flash was made by mikeinel from deviantart

I thought that this was one of the best flashes in the world. I added it to my faves

Taking credit for other people's work is really mean. I mean, it's one thing to really admire someone's work and to even be jealous by what they are able to make up using creativity, but taking what belongs to them and just sticking a new name is completely unnaceptable. Did taking someone's hard work make you any better of a video maker? Does anyone respect you now? Any admirers? NO! You just tainted your name by doing such a horrible thing. We all know the truth about this, so please take it down. You know as well as everyone else, that a lot of hard work went into that video, so it's hurtful to the person who made the video to see it reposted someone else AND being claimed as original. If you liked it so much, be like the rest of us and support it. Watch it a million times over and spam the comment box at YouTube with your feelings of it, whatever. Do you want everyone to keep insulting you, I think not. Do the right thing, since you're not fooling anyone.

(By the way, thanks. >_> I had to go make an account on this site just to say all that to you.)

YOU NO GOOD THIEF! I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW I MADE AN ACCOUNT ON THIS WEBSITE JUST SO I COULD YELL AT YOU! THIS IS NOT YOUR WORK! NOR IS IT IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM YOURS! TAKE IT DOWN BECAUSE YOU ALREADY HAVE A BUNCH OF COMMENTS LIKE THESE AND WILL PROBABLY GET EVEN MORE! YOU KIND OF PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK! WHAT "SOMETHING I PUT TOGETHER'? PUT TOGETHER MY ~~~! F- YOU!

You really need to take this down. If not, this hate mail will continue to come. And not to mention you can get banned for stealing someone else's work. And trust it's their work. I have seen it before. You can't claim this is yours when the artist has this on youtube and their gallery/

This video (THAT MIKEINEL, NOT YOU) made is an amazing work that no one, especially you, could ever get away with stealing. You must be the stupidist person on the face of the planet to think you could get away with this.
Be a pal and go die in a hole. You shame the Internet and all those who use it. (Which is virtually everyone. Which means everyone now hates you. Congratulations.)

hey mann stealing someone elses work is just plain stupid...
If YOURE the REAL owner then tell me what program you used, how long it took you, whats the REAL title of the movie?! WOW your soooo stupid to even say its your own work...-___- it shames me to see that there are actual ppl like you who would even do such a horrible thing. someone put their hard work and effort into this project so they can give it to someone or show the public. not to be stolen...wow your just....

you know what, youre not even worth it to be called a name...

Mikeinel worked hard on this. >.<

ASSWIPES LIKE YOU ARE ARE ONLY GOOD FOR ONE THING. TARGET PRACTICE!
GIVE UP NOW THE ENTIRE NET IS AGENST YOU. JUST ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG, TAKE DOWN THE VIDEO AND YOU MIGHT SAVE A FRACTION OF YOUR DIGNITY AND REPUTATION INTACT! THERE ARE PLENTY OF HACKERS THAT COULD AND WOULD FRAG YOUR HARD DRIVE IN AN INSTINT! DON'T PISS OFF THE WRONG PEOPLE ASSHOLE!

You do realize this submission will only be deleted because its uploaded by you, not the original artist...

Wow, and you dared defending yourself as the rightful owner...

I pity you fool

You say you didnt steal this? what an obvious lie. obviously mikeinel from devart made this. his piece is amazing yet you try to take credit for it on another site? you thought u could get away w/ it but oh no. you were so wrong. mikeinel has many supporters and we will not sit around and watch thiefs like you roam around the internet, more or less the world, stealing people's works.

don't you dare steal ever again. have a nice day. NOT.

Obvious Troll is obvious

you really thought you could steal from someone like Mikeinel?dumbass.

All we can enjoy is flaming you, and marveling on how low someone can go, on how stupid someone can be to steal from an artist like Mikeinel.
This is HIS work, got it? HIS "Draw with Me"!!
Art-thief!
You bring shame to the world, dont ever call yourself and artist ever again.

This flash is as great as you are a piece of shit for stealing it. Kinda funny how you deny stealing it though at the end the credits stating who made it flashes by and who it was really dedicated to. I guess you forgot to take that out before posting it as yours huh, dipshit? Not to mention the art work in this is on his and his girlfriend DA accounts and the video of this was posted on YouTube before this was posted here, though you already know that since that's where you got the footage! Go to hell!!
BLAMED= 0
And P.S. to everyone else: the original name of this video is "Draw With Me". Complement the REAL creator, not this bitch.

THEIF!!!!!!!!!!!

this is NOT YOURS AT ALL!

Get a Life! make something of your own instead of stealing others works!

you are lower then the scum at the bottom of the ocean!

you should die because you stole this from mikeinel, i mean seriously, do you want to be hated forever? then SUBMIT YOUR OWN CRAP THAT YOU ACTUALLY MADE! and the title of this animation is "draw with me" not, so far but so close,

This is stolen. The original animation was "Come Draw With Me" by Mikeinel and can be viewed on Youtube.

Seriously, just give up already. There's no point in continuing to pretend it's yours when we all know it isn't.

You going to get in trouble.

http://www.youtube.com/user/mikeinel
You did indeed steal this. Come on man, I'm sure that you have artistic talent of your own, but to steal the work of others is just lower than low...I hope that you can fess up to this, and admit that you stole it...
Unless your just trolling DA, in which case, bravo, but the joke is over when people take offense. I suggest if you don't want your reputation (what little i'm sure you had) ruined, its time to take this down...
You even got the original artists attention, games over...
http://mikeinel.deviantart.com/journa l/24149419/

This was made by Mikeinel at DeviantArt. Feel the shame dude.

ok ONE, the quality is WORSE then the actual one. 2. I watched this guy on DA and Youtube and I saw when he FIRST submitted it, long before you ripped this. 3. Die DIE DIE!

you know newgrounds says not to comment offensive and mean reviews, but you know what, you didnt even make this so I HOPE YOU CAN TRY HARDER TO MAKE A VIDEO THAT ROCKS AS HARD AS MIKEINELL. hows that for being helpful!! hope karma kicks you in the . for being a.

whoop blop doo shlop bop

Just delete your account. you're not worth the time.

hey idiot stealing things is done by criminals and low lifes and your both steal from a great artist clearly you have no talent and will never get one

take it down idiot before it's too late fuck face now die

erm, it's actually called "draw with me" not "so far but so close" this is also Mike Inel's art your taking, try not to do this again, so plz take it down, or write in the comments, "i did not draw this, but i like it, and i'm only trying to make it much more famous, this belongs to XXXXXXXX, etc."

Please do not steal what others have spent months of dedicated effort, hard work, creativity and imagination to create.

If someone complimented you on this work, would you genuinely feel good about yourself? Would you honestly be proud of yourself? For what? Your ability to take what is others and present as your own?

What's sad about this whole incident is that no one is falling for it. You don't even get the empty victory of receiving compliments you don't deserve. Instead, everyone is pointing you out as a thief.

Instead of embarrassing yourself, why not spend time improving your own skills and creating your own masterpieces? You won't have to steal things in a desperate quest for false recognition, because you'll be earning true recognition with your own work.

Please drop this pointless, painfully obvious facade and remove this work. It doesn't belong to you. You did not create it. You know it very well and we know it very well. So what is the point of continuing to paint yourself the fool?

Just remove it and we can all move on.

Thanks.

FUCKING RETARD!

Stolen. not only did you make yourself a big target to flamers haters and trolls , you should be ashamed to even post this and claim this animation yours! This is also Crime and could cause you trouble . I hope you get banned for such nonsense!

http://mikeinel.deviantart.com/ OWNS THIS FLASH!
Dear god, how stupid do you think we are?!
Wait to steal this flash! You just taint artists, and made no effort to even remove the freaking video, becaese looks like you're caught to me!
MikeInel Made ALL THIS EFFORT in this flash, then you waltz by all happy-go-lucky and take the video! How could you?
Pack lots of baggage, cause you're booked for one big freaking GUILT TRIP.
-Yachiru-San, Sango998 of DeviantArt

You're a moron for taking a masterpiece from a pretty well known artist.
You're a bigger moron for stating it is yours.
Plus you cut off where it says its Mike Inel's work ._.

Can't tell if you're a troll or a fool.

You are a shame! xD
if you need a life, ask for a cent to buy it please!!!...don't bother others who work hard.
[oh, this must be rated -10...well...I acually think it must be as low as you...but thats impossible xD! HAHAHAHAHA!]

NOT HIS WORK! MIKE INEL EVEN HAS A PRODUCTION PROCESS AND YOU JUST CLAIM IT'S YOUR WORK?!? you are SOOOO going down. you picked the wrooooong artist to steal from buddy.

i think its low that you think you can get away with stealing from someone as great as mikeinel! you are going to get banned from newgrounds if i can help it! you have no idea how many angry users are going to assault you for stealing something thats very important to the original artist! blam blam blam blam blam is all your going to get!

Everyone knows you stole it. Stop acting like it's yours. You would never "lower yourself" and steal? Really now? Here's the thing; I know you want to be popular and all that crap- WHATEVER! Make your own damn art! Stop taking all that time and effort that another amaing artist put into this and say it's yours. It is SO incrediby rude and selfish of you. I don't know how stealing something makes you feel good....OMFG I hate people who do this. I really want to push you into a pool and then taze you.

Oh- and you can't spell for shit, jackass.

YOUR A FREAKIN THEIF, MIKE INEL MADE THIS, GO TO HIS FREKAIN DEVIANTART AND YOU'LL KNOW IT'S NOT YOU WHO MADE THIS. AND DUN GO EMO EITHER, CUZ IF YOU DO, YOU ARE PLAIN STUPID. SHOW SOME REAL ART MADE BY YOU. AS FOR MIKE INEL GO HERE: http://www.mikeinel.com . i hope an administrator sees this and put this down you loser!

You STOLE THIS from MIKEINEL!
Someone needs to take this down and ban this user!
This is CLEARLY NOT YOURS.
Search "Draw With Me" and MikeInel, and you'll find out it's really stolen!

Thx u for making this a bad for me, this isn't yours and you say it is and plus thats not even the whole thing. We really wish you would take this down, Mike Inel isn't really happy to see that someone stole his stuff

HOW DARE YOU STOLE THIS WONDERFUL FLASH!! YOu suck @ss!!

Why would you stoop so low just to get fame. This work obviously does not belong to you. This video belongs to Mikeinel. The original is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvjZ6V kLuCM

People like you make me sick. Please take it down before the watchers of the original creator start to riot.

Great flash. But I must say, it looked even better by the original artist, whom I actually know, not personally but I DO know him. Dude, seriously. Why ya gotta steal dude? Why?

Someone PLEASE take this guy down!!! Mike Inel's beatiful art shouldn't be plagurised, and that goes for anyones!... I find this a disgraceful and offensive act, and hope that someone in charge here at NG will read the posts showing this submission as theiving, and take it down.

Can't believe there is people like you, that's why we all live in a corrupt world.

I thought this was great when I saw it the first time by the guy who actually made this.

I can't believe that you would take this and claim it as your own. Not cool.

Well it seams you JUST lowered yourself and disgraced the TRUE artist who made this. You're nothing but an art thief! What els have you stolen of true artists and claimed it's yours?? People who are going to give him a 10 or say it's awesome, don't. He stole this video from the true artist Mike Inel. Go to youtube and type in "Draw with Me" and you will see the TRUE artist of this beautiful video.

I'm reporting art theft.

http://mikeinel.deviantart.com/galler y/ that thing originally come from that guy! don't claim that video to be your own!

Wow, way to be a thief.

yea this is great i loved it..... but its not yours this is mikeinels...

This is one of the best flash videos i've ever seen! The animations were smooth. The story kept me wanting more. This was Brilliant! Keep up the good work.

you make me lose my english words the only thing i can say is thats a great all in all style i seen in a long time make more of it and you bekomm one of the great artists

god work man

I really enjoyed this piece! This was very saddening, but also fun with good humor, and touching. :)
And the Animation was well drawn! Very Great!
The song went well with the plot.
The part where he told her that her chest wasn't that big was pretty funny XD

Good Job on this Piece!

This is a beautiful piece of Flash already one of my favorites!!!

Its BEAUTYFUL and sad...
really good job. Wonderful drawing and good story. keep it up =)
10/10 5/5

Sweet GOD!! That was amazing! Beautiful graphix, great anime style...and da story, just perfect! Man I love your work :D

not so bad

This is one of the best animations i ever seen on newgrounds, congratulations! i really like it!. Keep the good work.

Sleek! Although a bit choppy, the animation was very good. Really now, was that her hand in the box?

I dont see the point, i guess. theres a mirror and then a blackhole then a mirror, and this happens to that in this place and blah blah..im sure alot of people will like this (probablya0 but i hated it, sorry.

It is very nice drawn and the message here is very clear, in my opinion anyway. The music is not bad, helps build emotion up. All in all a very nice made video! Don't stop with the video, i'm already waiting for the next one!

I was expecting something far less impressive, but this was pretty darn cool. While I'm definitely no artist or animator, I thought you did a fine job with the art. Story-wise, I found it pretty simple and sweet, not necessarily mind-blowing, but not generic at all either. Song selection wasn't bad either, but the moments of silence didn't quite work for me.

I really LOVE this movie...
its sad and very touching..

nice drawing, nice animation..

I want to see more of this!

That was really cool, good job, guy. You got a 5 from me, u deserved it. I watched it twice to see the animation of thier faces.
