I have finally finished it! The Guardian is done!

The music is called "Shadows" composed by Lindsey Stirling, be sure to click on the link at the end to check out her other stuff! She's really talented!

Special thanks to RicePirate for giving me advice throughout the process of me making it. I'm sorry if I spammed you with so many dumb questions!

Well anyway, I hope you enjoy! Happy New Year!

EDIT: Thank you so much for daily first and front page! I'm very grateful :]

oh my godness, this is amazing!

it is pure awesomenes distilled into 3 or 4 minutes of flash animation. and the music... brilliant piece. after a friend showed me lindsey he showed me this. i am still convinced that newgrounds is on of the best internet pages of the world. thank you for delivering such an epic piece to the world.

really beautiful

awesome story...i've just one question...the "dark man" has taken that king of sun...and gave it to the guardian... saying "just take it",while he should want it again while next to the cliff?
about the animation,it's really cool,if there is a thing that i would correct it would be the end,when the guardian "launches" himself to the camera...he looks freezed at the end,then the black screen;removing 1 or 2 frames from the end of the animation(just before the black screen) would let my vote become a 11/10 xD

Great work

The only criticism I have for you is there are some tangents when the main character is interacting with the forest light. Besides those small issues of flatness this was a great animation. Did you use a lot of symbols or aim for the more traditional aspect of classical animation?
