NOTE: This is the full animation! So you don't have to watch part one, it's included in this! Just click the 'play the movie!' button. It's named 'part 2', but it's really the whole thing.

Glenn gives Annie a drawing she likes, winning over her heart. Annie spends the rest of the day trying to coax Glenn into romancing her. All he wants to do is draw, though.

This is the entire animation as it was meant to be seen! It's a whopping 13 minutes long, so don't watch if you don't have that much time to spare. I updated the first half as well, rendering 'part 1' obsolete. So if you haven't seen it already, don't bother, it's included in this. (unless you want to watch it anyway, to see what's different between the two versions or whatever).

Hope you guys enjoyed this, I spent about 9 months-ish working on it (of actual work, anyway), so I hope it pleases! Happy Valentines day!

EDIT: Thanks for the front page!

Art Is Love As Love Is Art. Make Sense? Thought So

I was always one of those people who believed the pen was mightier than the sword. A pen in the wrong hands can create some chaos that can break the heart into itty bitty pieces while the sword can only just stab it until it stops. And so if you really overthink things through (I mean like shooting a fly with a bazooka kind of thinking) you can say that an artist/writer can become the world's deadliest assassins. And that's what I thought about as this flash was loading after getting rid of the first meaning the title could've suggested being the dark naughty critic that I am. But instead I'm introduced to a lovey dovey movie that seemed to lost some of it's lovey as it went along with the typical 'secret admirer' concept.

Through trenching across the various "awws" I just couldn't help but to point out things that just didn't make sense for me besides the obvious. First main problem is the most talked over, the music. In these kinds of chick flicks, one usually suspects to hear songs from love-sick artists like Taylor Swift and/or orchestras that usually make the mood obvious, but the music selection here just really sets itself up an anti-Cupid fortress to me. Where they're moments where a simple violen could've brought tears, instead the BGM makes it eery like a creepy stalker is eyeing someone, kind of like the attention-whoring sun. I'm not really sure if the music was supposed to send off that kind of emotion for unique artistic flair, but overall it really Was that piece of lottery chocolate in the box that turned out to be tooth paste flavored: Expecting sweetness but intstead get a weird though minty surprise.

While in the verge of the creation of my mangina through watching this chick flick, let's talk about other minor things that baffled me in this artsy little world. One thing was the age group. Seriously I couldn't tell how old these kids really were. They looked like high-school students, but the overabundance of crayons really threw me off, unless they were in special ed, as well as the choice of payment used throughout looking like some paperboy's allowance (Unless it was some other currency, please inform me if so). Even if so, I'm really surprised these kids had so much liberty. I don't know about you, but unless they were in some Charlie Brown school, schools nowadays are seriously strict in security. Yet one of the students just skips out of the building, without the use of her Sonic the Hedgehog speed by the way, without a glance while the teacher just sat there all pissed at his job. And who seriously would go out with a boy THAT DENSE? I've heard of the artistic type but cmon! The only way he could've figured any love interest was if he drew it all over her face.

Whew! Now that manperiod is over, allow me to say that the movie itself was a very charming experience for me that reminded of a cross-up of "That Special Someone" and "Boy Meets World". Besides the music, everything from the art and animation, to the Sims-like voice-acting was very well done considering the people involved.
This movie truly does drive the message "A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words". It's just questionable if any of those words could hopefully make a sentence. In this case, the picture blaintly says one thousand times "I Love You"

So screw it, I may be 8 days late and it may make relevance now while losing my manliness, but Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! And for those of you who seem to "lack the romantic potential" (You know who you are), Happy Single Awareness Day!!

So touching. Its understandable that sometimes guys just don't understand when theres a girl who likes him or not. Quite the love comedy you've made Rob. I suppose in this story the moral would be, "Pictures worth a thousand words." Or in this case saying, "I Love You" a thousand times. Haha!
