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!


You fully deserve your front-page distinction!

Probably the best animation I've ever seen here on NewGrounds , it had a pretty good plot and an amazing message at the end , that we can't do everything by ourselves and we will often need to count on other people for help. On top of that , that we should be brave , and not succum to what other may say or do , either to or around us.

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!!
