YAY. So I've gotten the scoop from the admins on Pandora's Book (and pretty much all my other animations)-- so all of my music-accompanied pieces from here on out are going to be posted silent on DA. Please don't let that stop you from faving or commenting on it here, because I still appreciate your feedback. I'm not a musician, and I'm a broke college student, so I can guarantee you that I will not have the means for obtaining said music license from each and every famous composer out there. :p That's life, folks.

So! If you want to see the complete animation (*soundcoughsound*) please go here:



This was my flash animation final two quarters ago, when I was first learning the flash interface. I had prior experience with toon boom, so that helped. This took about 8 weeks from concept to completion. . .and a few sleepless nights. The characters are 100% traditionally animated in flash--no tweens, no rotoscoping. . . so that's a lot of drawings, as you can imagine. Hella lotta fun, though. I'd say it's worth the extra work to breath a little more life into a character. Grab some popcorn and please enjoy the movie!

What a lovely piece of animation! So simple, but very evocative. Just a girl and her... well, I don't know what her 'beast' is, but it's pretty cool. And kinda cute!

Great work!

Animator-Level-X Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2010
youve put alot of work on the background.
characters doesnt have any shades.. also in the other hand if u give more details to characters itll be time consuming and hard to animate ( as you mentioned u did FBF) but still... with your skill.. if you could put details and all with the character and all to complete an animation.. itll be Awesome ...

im not saying this one is bad hehe dnt get it wrong .. i just love ur work and even this is something i enjoyed alot. even in new grounds :)

Was this used for school or work cause if it is for school you can use music clips free. Not to mention there is a ton of free use music on the net if you search long enough.

xxcullen-freakxx Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
that was so well animated! To the same standard of real actors i think anyway!

DON"T READ THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

srry but this is freakin me out..
Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you
cannot get out. Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortun
