This was a project I've been working on for about a year and a half. I'm happy to finally be able to share the final product. The goals of this work were to improve my ability to make backgrounds--because if you know me (or have seen any of my past works/excuses) --they aren't my strongest suit. :3

So what I tried to do was make a mellow episode of a series that mostly only had over-the-top action scenes. This would give me grounds to strengthen an ability to make something beautiful to look at, as well as fun to watch.

***To put the story simply: Ilu would love to be a conductor when she grows up. Likewise, her friends would love to be great artists, dancers, and even skilled musicians. But the daily mechanical grind of their lives don't really lead to any real chances to find that love they're searching for. By the end of the animation, neither Ilu nor any of her friends reach their goals--but based on Ilu's passion, they all get a bit closer somehow. And that was the kind of animation I wanted to make. ***

What you see here is what I'm honored to share with you.

(I'd love supportive comments just as much as the next guy, but if you have something critical to add, please--PLEASE--do so too. Thought-rich comments appreciated above all else.)

Thanks you very much for the Daily 1st, Newgrounds community.
Woot for the FrontPage, NG Staff! I appreciate this so much. :3

8 for animation and 1 for story

Skaijo responds:

Basic premise of the story is in the comments section. It's none too difficult to interpret though--it's just slice of life.

Wow that was awesome, normally i don't like anything with tweens in it, but youve done it so well and mixed it with fbf i just loved it! Great animation, wicked song, not sure i totally got the story, but i still really enjoyed it! 10/10 5/5

Skaijo responds:

My goal is to use all the different kinds of animation styles all at the same time fluently and cohesively. I think that's the best way to grow in this kind of hobby.

much smoother

I love unmei! And most of your animation was much smoother, however there's still a lot of room for improvement, but the jerky nature of integrating real life photos with animation makes most flaws unnoticeable. Very nice work, keep it coming!
