The Evolving Stick Fight

Please keep in mind there are 2,200 frames of individual drawings of MOVEMENTS-none of them are copied and pasted.

What the animation is about? Hellhound-IX is a ninja stick figure, and I myself am a normal stick figure. There is not much fighting, but there is a lot of chasing. Evolution of my stick figure occurs in the second scene-actually there are no scenes... lol. I tried something ill-logical. I drew a gargantuan background which took up to 3 days~2 hours per day, and made it an object. Then I moved the background to my liking. It wasn't easy because it lagged big time. The backgrounds themselves were up to 15 mb. Once I finished moving my backgrounds around, I moved the stick figures with them while having the backgrounds locked.
I feel I improved my drawings in this one-it can be seen in the trails of the stick figures and other objects.

Reviews Appreciated even if you feel my animation sucked ballz to the wallz lol.
I had fun making it anways.

Special Thanks to Crosswinds for the great music-check out his work!

Yea that is all frame by frame with a mouse. I got this Bamboo now though-I can draw it out instead of hurting my wrist. I wish I knew about it b4 I started the project lol. Thnx for the review. I know the end was very slow. Yes practice makes perfect-that's why i haven't submitted anything lately-because I'm trying many new things thanx to the bamboo.
