The Old Ash Tree

This one is best with your volume up. The words to the narration are below:

My dear father died in a faraway war
Left Mother and I quite without hope
We used our last pennies to leave our fine city
And away to a house on a farm.
And on this farm, on the thorniest edge
Stood an ash tree as old as the earth
With branches so gnarled and twisted and black
That my every bone cried out to climb
"But no! Oh no!" said our funny old neighbor
Wringing her hands like two rags
"Don't you go near it, young Miss Eliza
For her roots are bad all the way down."
I thought it silly but did as she told
Until Mother went missing one eve
So sad had she been that I feared the worst
And went down to the old ash tree
And now here I stand but here there is nothing
Naught but a flowering weed
But the breeze, I could swear, carries upon it
The scent of my mother's perfume
Yes, the wind, I declare, does carry upon it
The scent of my mother's perfume



This short is awesome, only, why did you add images of a bug, a worm and a dead deer? In my opinion, these things kinda spoils all your animation, so there is 7 instead of 10.

Great Job

Really good! It has a really creepy feel to it. 10/10!

I've missed you Katy!

This is what true, untainted, pure art looks like. The animation style in this one looks a little different from your older ones, but variety is nice. And might I add that the whispering voice was intensley(can't spell) creepy? I know the font had to match the look of the drawings, but they were hard on the eyes xD. I've been a fan of your cartoons for years now and I'll always look forward to any new creations. P.S I've already cleared the bookshelf 8D
