A short animation about two knights and their lives in a world above the clouds. This episode took extra long to finish because I tried pushing myself to do things I never did before, I hope it was worth the wait. :)

An interesting style of animation. I do enjoy how the story may be told without a single word being uttered by any of the characters.



well done love the backgrounds



The animation here is great, but not only that: the music carries this episode as well. Great job all around.



Great to see this is still going. havent seen any since episode 3, and im glad to see that the animation quality has improved VASTLY. almost every animation is very well done, very fluid, and none look awkward. the only one i could find issue with was the tree shadow while the main NIte was lying down, it seems to just be a simple 2 frame animation of the shadow shifting from 1 spot to another. granted, its a small thing so not really important, but you may want to stick to at least 5 unique frames, to avoid it looking like the image is simply "jumping" from place to place.

sound and music choices as well as application were very well done as well, and this time i actually understand whats going on, and even understood before i could read the scroll, so kudos on properly conveying a story without words.

overall, im quite happy to see that you have stuck with it, and in only a few instances youve jumped massively in the quality of your work. i think ill follow you and see what comes next. ill also have to check here more often now, as i seem to be selected every month now for the monthly "best of's" and believe there might be something actually worth seeing here on NG again.

honestly, this far outdoes 90% of the meme spouting copy/paste "my version of this character from this game/show" garbage that has infested this site for the past 6 or so years. you have revived my hope that there are non cancerous creators still uploading to NG.

Thank you very much :)
You're absolutely right about the shadow animation but I actually animated that last and the project was taking way longer than it should have so it was either a 3 frame animation or me losing my mind haha - But I'll definitely work on that

And yeah, definitely do stick with Newgrounds, some big animation guys upload here from time to time and I probably wouldn't be making animations if it wasn't for Newgrounds :)


I haven't seen the others yet but I will watch now- this was so good!
