@02:03Ahahahah awwwww, thank you! Pfah this is gonna sound ridiculous, but I actually looked up a scene from Fifth Element while working on that parking garage scene... broke up all my seriousness having to re-watch that scene again and again, lmao...

@03:39Ahhhh, thank you so much for the super-kind comment!! I definitely do want to be able to fully render/polish up the whole animation someday, but I need to re-do a lot of the scenes to make them better... mainly that mush in the middle, hahahah!
But gosh, thank you so much! That the concept/story could be touching/emotional to the audience is the greatest praise I could receive! ♥

And ahhhhhhhh but you studied animation!! You know how much work I still need to do with depth and all that... but, gosh, still so glad you liked this, praise from someone who did animation for a while is the highest of all hahahah! ♥

Final project from my Intro to 2D Animation class last semester--yeah, way back in May. Took me that long just to build up the courage/get enough distance from my own embarrassment to put this up here. In a way I'm still kind of proud of it: just seeing what I managed to do in, oh, 6 weeks or so? in a class I "took" just because I wanted to learn animation... but obviously, I bit off way more than I could chew, and realized just how far I still am from becoming anything close to an animator.

Please don't critique this for the animation or concept or composition; I know it's poor, rushed, cheesy and disconcerting. Most of it makes me wince. I know I really, really need to practice depth.
But, well... I guess, I just really wanted to show you this roughest version of the animation I WANTED to make. I did this for my final project because this is what I dreamed of every time I listened to this song. This is Ian's song, and Ian's beginning. I'm not even sure if I want to keep this idea--it's cheesy as hell, I know, but for now it's what I'm running with until I can come up with something better. The concept's gonna stay the same either way, because this has always been a story of the fall. For those of you who've been following Angel Dust (bless you guys, seriously), maybe this'll help illuminate something? I hope it adds a little to the story.

The song is "One Day You Will Teach Me To Let Go Of My Fears," by sleepmakeswaves, used with their permission in this animation. You can listen to the unedited version here, and even download it if you like! Thanks again to this band for letting me use their music; it's the whole reason this animation even exists.


For anyone who spotted the cameos, they are: ~shark-bomb's Tudor, =theblackbutterfly's Obizuth, and of course a Cris from AD. And yes, I did look up Treasure Planet's intro scene a million times, but no, this was not actually inspired by it. This is the beginning to my own story, Angel Dust: [link]

Put together with Photoshop CS5 and Toon Boom Animate Pro. Also available on Vimeo, here

Thank you everyone for the support, you guys are the best!!! ♥
