WARNING, MASSIVE FLASH FILE :noes:

Click the link below to watch the vid on Youtube!
~ [link] ~

In the spirit of subtlety, I created a piece inspired by one of the biggest things that makes me who I am. I'm a storyteller, and besides plot, the most important thing in a story is its characters. And those characters often take on lives of their own.

I also love to animate and its played a big part in my life over the past five years, so it only seemed appropriate that I use that in this vid.

(And I enjoy Reggae music so the backing track was pretty appropriate as was its title "Do Your Own Thing" which is what Kyler is insistent on doing here)

This piece was also broadcast at the Bang! Short Film Festival in 2010 [link]

He looks like a kid whose parents are trying to get him dressed to go out, to which the kid is refusing to do, then when the kid is fully dressed in an outfit he clearly doesn't like, the parents pat him on the head and tell him they look good dressed like that.

The kid is not happy with this.

This is what I think when I saw your animation.

I'd say that was a very good analogy, yeah. XD

This is so cute! Just a question, but when are you going to continue with "WATSON your mind?"

I haven't stopped working on it. WYM isn't top priority because my original project focus is on Outcast Hero. However, doesn't mean I don't add to the series when I get more ideas. In fact, I'm scripting episode 3 at the moment.

I'll admit it looks like WYM is getting no attention because the flow of related art to my gallery has slowed. I really should fix that. :meow:

Okay! I was just wondering. WYM was the reason why I started watching you.

Yep!

Imported the video into Flash and drew over it - the only downside is I haven't quite figured out how to import video at maximum quality yet... XD;
