UPDATE: Got Daily 2nd Place! Thank you Newgrounds!

Finally, after 5-6 months of continuously interrupted work (which started in summer of 2012 and ended in early January, 2013) because of school work and such, this animation is done. This at first started off simply as an animation for entertaining purpose only under the old name: "Treasure Hunt". But after many thoughts and considerations with my family, I've decided to add something more meaningful that turned out to be great in the end. Again, the animation was done in ToonBoom Animate Pro 2 and then edited and re-rendered in Corel VideoStudio X5 Pro. This is also the first movie that I included nothing but my own original piano compositions.

P/S: I learned the art and animation style from Adam Phillips (chluaid). He's truly inspired me to improve my animating skill.

I'm 5 years late, but wow... I really loved this animation! The music, the artstyle, scenery and flow of the animation was really beautiful. I hope that you continue to animate and keep composing music!

Take care!

So beautiful. Great animation and message. :)

I loved watching it simply because the backgrounds, shots, and music was beautiful. And while the character design was simple, there was definitely some great animation in there too. The plot was pretty simple and didn't really hold my attention, but I loved going along for the ride.

Thank you for your comment. I tried to bring the beauty of nature as much as possible through those techniques.

This gives me a minecraft feeling for some reason. The nice piano music, the colourful and nice ambient, the world.

Thank you for your feedback.

the music and theme of lesson reminds me of the indie game, To the Moon.

well done. So fluid! and simple.

tommykong95 responds:

Thank you, it isn't what I had in mind but To the Moon is a very inspirational game for me.
