Well, this is it. Roughly a year in the making, this is my beh-bay. It's amazing how time flies just for a measily 2 minutes of frame-by-frame animation. *sniff* I'm so happy. :happycry:

Hope you enjoy this little adventure with Sioux and Tanka!


Flash 8 + After Effects (compositing)

Yeah! It is really really nice! Are you ever going to make animations like that again? (like as in animation movies of that length)
It is very fluid and has really great animation-you did a great job!

Yup, Right now they are not letting anyone graduate with an 2D demo reel but Im gonna try to convince them. I am working on some characters and plan on doing some shorts and see where it goes from there. If not I can always fall back on my 3D modeling and animation but you know it never hurts to try. =:3

Heyyy...! That was really charming. And amazing.

Even more so since you stuck with this project for a WHOLE year. °•° That kind of dedication should be more than enough to get these characters licensed, if you ever wanted (if you haven't already). :nod: :nod:

More than anything else, I was *especially* impressed that you were animating so closely with the Miyazaki track, but still had the mental flexibility and collaborative skills to conjure up a fresh new track for the finale.
