SWEET JESUS IT IS DONE

THIS little idiotic thing is what I've been doing for the past 3 weeks rather than doing any other form of artwork. 8I It's my final for my film class. And I had only 3 weeks to do it, from starting concepts to finishing sound editing. I've legit been working about 2-4 hours every single day on it.

I'm not even sure whether I like how it turned out or not. I know I could have done muchhhhh better if I had been given more time to do it, but I suppose it turned out... satisfactory.

Essentially the idea behind it was deceptive relationships, where it's more based on envy than anything and can only crumble.

If you can't understand wtf is going on, here's the plot lined out more clearly:
Basically a boy meets a forest creature. He takes their friendship to be true, but the creature becomes jealous of the boy and his humanity/self, and thus tries to take it from him. When she fails, she decides that if she can't have it, neither can he (IE snapping the plane). Thanks to the intervention of the creature's father, though, the boy is able to regain his identity and remember to keep it safe.

if I were able to make it longer than 5 minutes I probably could have made it more clear. I'd need more time for that, though. SO MUCH WORK GAH!

FUN, FUN.

okay dangit I need to go rest. ;___; Normal art updates should resume soon!

THANKS FOR BEING PATIENT, MY BEAUTIES. <3

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT

This thing..... This is a masterpiece. AND IT'S ONLY THE STORYBOARD. HOW THE HELL DOES SHE DO THAT??????

I cannot honestly think of anything wrong with this. I love it. I was just like, going through my watchbox, and then I saw this, and I was like, "Oh, I'm gonna watch this". And then I did.

THIS IS AWESOME. The only thing for it to be improved is for it to be an actual short film.

WHICH SHE SHOULD DO. Seriously, I cannot find a single flaw. It's a nice little story that has a 3-act structure, without any dialogue.

Awesome. Simply awesome.

Where to begin? To be honoust I think I've watched it over 5 times and I still enjoy every second of it. Your style and eye for detail and movement made this a pleasure to watch. I already commented that for the biggest + is the music that goes so well with the flow of the video. For this reason I gave you the full score on vision and impact. Offcourse there is always room for improvement, but with the time that was given for this assignment I simply applaud you for creating this little gem.

I have to admit, this was the first time seeing a storyboard like this and I must say it is lovely to watch and easy to follow. (the main reason why I gave 5 stars for this) The reason why I did not gave the full score for technique is because I think the story sometimes felt a bit rushed/going to fast for me. That is perhaps personal, but once again: I am extremely impressed that you managed to create this whole thing in just 3 weeks!

Pleasure to watch, and I hope there will be more of these in the future! :)

Photoshop for the drawings, and the video itself was put together in Windows Movie Maker (since I can't afford a better film editing software at the moment. x))

Wonderfull I really really love it!! =) It's amazing how you did this in 3 weeks with all this detail, colors, lighting, music, editing wow the last one I did, took me a month and a half without all this details..

I loved the story, it's really sweet and so are the characters. Also I love the atmosphere of the film and I think the music really worked with it. I'd very much like to see the animated movie itself =)

I love the expressions you put into the characters, the story was very imaginative and the choice of background music worked very well with the change of emotion throughout the story :heart:
I noticed the Dog Police in a picture frame at one point as well, amazing!

That was really moving, that was very sweet, and explained the true essence of friendships and how they can go terribly wrong, but their is a good thing of everything and everyone.

Wow, Kir. Just amazing. All the work and tears you put into this was totally worth it. Some parts of it were a bit unclear for me, but for the most part I totally got it. I think what I loved most was the atmosphere of this. It's whimsical and yet has a rather creepy tone to it. I felt charmed and yet also felt some shivers down my spine as well. Wonderfully done!

This was so amazing!! I can't believe you did all this by yourself and in only 3 weeks! Beautiful artwork, music, - also really impressed by that you added sound effects too! Simply stunning work
:love:

I also thought the theme was pretty clear- it's a sad bit of realization for kids, but an important lesson in growing up. Just because someone seems cute and innocent doesn't mean the friendship is equally mutual. Very poignant and the music really hits it.
