Hey there everyone, here is a short animation I did.

Thanks a bunch to Harry for the music, I had to give this film in time for a deadline and somehow I was left without a composer the last minute and Harry saved me by composing this awesome music within a day. I owe him half a cookie or something.

The actual animation was completed within a week, story, animatics etc took much much more time due to having trouble with coming up with a decent story. Not 100% happy with it, but I will let you judge this.

Thanks to Adam Phillips for his beautiful fire animation, imitation is the highest form of flattery ;)

EDIT- Wow, frontapage and a bunch of trophies, THANKS NEWGROUNDS!


"Wow I would be cool having that pet"

But poor dragon they didnĀ“t leave him in liberty it had a very good history. Good work!


That was a beautiful flash, with a nice and powerful moral.
Graphics and animation is great, and the music fit perfectly for each scene and event. The story was easily understandable, and well done.
The red color scheme was brilliant as well.

Simply marvelous.

This animation is one of the best I have seen on Newgrounds yet. I loved the style the characters were in, what with the silhouettes and all, I like the way you use only the eyes to portray the emotions of different characters. I've read some of the reviews users have sent in on this, and they say it was too predictable. It was, and it turned out exactly like I wanted the story to end. Props to Harry for the music, it really puncuated the setting, which appeared to be some Baltic city. All in all, a great piece of work. I hope to see more like it in the future. 10/10 5/5

I couldn't possibly come up with any criticism, even if I wanted to. I love your style of animation. I love your art. And I loved the music. It was very quick, but even so, it stirred some emotion. It was nice that you gave it a happy ending, although the two were separated in the end.

Great work. 5/5. 10/10
