This is a short I made for an animation course I just finished. The object of the assignment was to animate a 30 second short traditionally to a piece of music. I'd heard this awesome composition years ago, but never had a cartoon I thought it would fit until now.

I have to apologize profusely to Waterflame. The ending was a little bit rushed and I forgot to put in his name. His song was a huge part of the inspiration of this project and I couldn't have done it without him. You should seriously check out his work if you haven't already.

Now that was good.
Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!

This is awesome! Cute dragon.

Magnificent. I hope I can learn to be as good as you one day, since I'm also an animator. :)

You really deserve these 5 stars. Hope you make more in the future. Heck, maybe watching you alone will rub off on my work. :D

Whoa, this is all traditional art, not digital?
5 stars! U really deserve this after many weeks of hard work!!
Keep up the good work!!! ^^

Slackman responds:

It's all done traditionally on one layer. Everything was drawn with colored pencil on paper and shot on an old school animation rig!

Thanks for the kind words!

I thought this was very good considering you drew all this by hand under 10 weeks. It's original too well I hope you keep up the good work :)
