Donaji & the Magical Poncho

Frontpage?! Whoa!
I remember back in 2006 when I joined NG, getting front page seemed like such a distant dream. It's still hard to believe. Thanks everyone who has supported this personal project! It trully means a lot to me!

During winter, the cold wind called Iztlacoliuhqui, who causes havoc with his tempest at the top of the mountains, is feared by everyone but a little fearless girl named Donaji, whose bravery will make their encounter something unavoidable decided by fate.

My latest animation project. Took over a year to finish, between school and this being the first time I work together with voice actors and a musician. It's been a challenging but rewarding experience.
Somehow related to my previous animation: Black Feathers (YouTube)
This story will continue as a webcomic I'm already planning.

Hope you like it!

Wow very nice

Wow what can be said about this fantastic piece that has not already been said it has some nice ideas some good action scenes some nice slow moments a really good story base and the characters are brilliant so very well done I thaught the animation was very smooth and we'll detailed and you did well with it I would love some even more flashy effects on this piece though don't get me wrong it's some solid stuff if you ask me so keep that up for sure

A bit more flashy effects but it was a fantastic piece


You fully deserve your front-page distinction!

That was cute. I like how you did the introductions and the story continues. Well done.

this was great!

En primero lugar, el hecho de ser LATINO! Me encantó! Este contenido no se lo pudo haber hecho de otra manera mas que trabajando organizadamente, si bien la historia no es una locura, pero es genial el concepto y por sobre todo la moraleja que deja, "A veces necesitamos de los demas".
Quizas a ti te parece un logro o el fin de un objetivo, pero ponte a pensar que en algun momento, quiza alguien necesita que le digan esto: A veces necesitamos de los demas, dejar el orgullo de lado y crear una armonia que ayuda a todos!.

Sinceramente te tengo que FELICITAR por: Originalidad, Simbologia (lo tomo como homenaje a nuestra cultura) y animaciones. A partir de este punto creo que ya solo creceras en todas las habilidades que vi en este corto.

Felicidades nuevamente y seguramente estoy con contacto contigo. Quiza podemos hacer algo juntos! Saludos y gracias por compartir!!
