If that was the case, you would be god-forsaken.

Not a bad animation, by the way.

God Forgot About Me COMPLETE by basakward. Although this is a short piece, it demonstrates a tremendous understanding of classic animation techniques. The characters have a lot of charm and the style once again just screams classics. All in all a fantastic animated short! ( Featured by kingmancheng )

I believe there will be a day when the industry will turn to frame by frame animation once again! So epic people like you will be more recognized! :D

Now to this, well, I'm speechless. This little piece is the true definition of animation, the creation of life. From just this little segment you've dragged your audience into the world of these characters, I love it. Plus the brilliant voice acting adds so much to it. 
You have amazing skill :iconasdfghplz:

I wish I could animate so smoothly! I'm working on an AMV currently but the best I can do is static images with little skips in the movement that match the beat, like three frames for a character to turn around.

Thank you so much for sharing this little piece of heaven. By the way, I think the rooster is super-cute La la la la, it reminded me my grandfather on a certain way.

The animation paired with this audio, it just seems more adorable and dearing than what it's really supposed to be. I suppose with a bi-spectacled(?)bird taking, it helps a bit. Great work.

Simple wonderful. The movement and the color is just so well presented. Both the characters are so well designed that even if the dog has not a spoken word, he still shows such a deep set of expressions. Once more, bravo! This is such a powerful piece that I am happy to have seen it today.

It was a mix.  The BG was done in TVPaint, the animation was done with Plastic Animation Paper, then colored with Toonboom Animate, and the comp was all done in AfterEffects.

That's fucking amazing!

All the little beats here and there, love it. So much character.

It's a shame we never see anything like this released as a full length movie any more. It's all CGI puppets these days which causes the characters to lose their soul if you ask me. Kind of depressing when you look at all the original development drawings and concept art that goes into these things and by the end they all just look the same.

Sorry...rant over.
