The Birth of Dragon_Jesus

I made this flash as a homework in animation class. I tried many different drawing technique and tried for the first time my drawing tablet! I also tried different scene transition and added some sound and some script for the play/replay. It was done in under 15hours, last exactly 30sec and end in a blunt way but hey it's only my first real work on flash!

This creature spawned from one of my friend's mind during a party... I drew it as representative as possible to his description, except for it's backpack containing lion as throwing projectile...

This flash is dedicated to Pierre-Luc Lemay

Edit [ I belive there is a probleme with my loading bar, if so please tell me! If it happen, right-click and choose play ]

Edit [ Put the NG simple preloader to fix the starting probleme, should be fine now]

What the fuck?!?!

Man... THAT'S FUCKING Dragon Jesus! Awesone!


Good animation. The animation style definitely has promise. The content is a bit questionable. It may be offensive to some religious groups.

Just a side note: it is believed by some that YHWH in the old testament was actually a great dragon and that the angels (Seraphim and Cherubim etc.) were basically "winged serpents." It is also believed that the angels pictured today were originally thought of during the dark or middle ages (somewhere in that period). If you search I'm sure you can find more info on this topic.

This animation could be seen as a depiction of that. (Jesus = Son of God. God = great dragon. Jesus = son of great dragon.) It can be seen not as hateful, but as a depiction of a different belief.

The name clearly states that it is the birth of "Dragon_Jesus" so anyone who would be offended by Jesus depicted as a dragon was warned before they even watched it.

The rating was on the animation only. It was a bit short, but still good. It was exactly what was expected from the name given to it. It was very good for a first movie.

The-Real-Sabin responds:

That's some nice informations and thanks for the feed back. I never meant to offend anyone, Dragon_Jesus is only a supernatural human-beast lesser deity with lots of super dumb power which spawned due to alchool and lack of sleep.

I could have spent more time perfectionning the animation but I decided to send it to NG as it was when I gave it to my teacher. The animation is exactly 30sec because it was asked in the homework.

And thanks for your fair score, I don't like random 10 poping for no reason, as we all know this ain't worth a 10 = )


This was the most awesome thing I've ever seen! This Pierre-Luc Lemay guy is a mythical creatures genius! Keep up the good work Sabin!


Your pre-loader wasn't working for me, so I had to start it manually. Everything else was meh.


Nice art and concept.... Sequal
