I was cleaning things on my desktop and I stumbled upon an old project that I did the beginning of Junior Year for my Basic Software Class (so about 2 semesters ago?). All these memories came back to me.

In this class we had to learn how to use all sorts of programs, but unfortunately it was more of 'i hope you can teach yourself and afford the programs and ima toss you off into the deep end' kind of class.

I couldn't buy Flash and had no fucking clue what I was doing and spent half the time on youtube and different sites to teach myself how to use the damn thing. ^^; haha

It was around Finals and I was also having horrible roommate problems and spiraling into a deep depression. I suffered/struggled emotionally and academically. I never slept or ate. My life was hell.

I put my heart into this first digital animation inspired by homesickness and mori girl Japanese subculture. A girl is simply just preparing some tea with her dog (based on my dog who actually wears the Cone of Shame).:D

It's simple, but I drew in more than 900 frames. I was so sleep deprived I forgot to draw in some important things. Overall I'm proud of what I managed to accomplish. It's also a reminder that I survived hell and that I created something lighthearted and hopeful during that time. :) Sorry for the rant, but I just wanted to share the deeper back story of this.:D I hope you enjoy! :heart:

It's very nice, It must have been hard do all those elements of the animation and scripts, but the result is smooths and with you cute style (and tender music) is a very beautiful effect.

(What I most likke was the dog, when he raise his head to wacth the teapot, I was feared that he jumped on it D: ) (If it were my kitty instead, she would have done it, the poor one is cute but such full also XD)

Thank you so much! I'm happy you enjoyed it. :D It was a little difficult, but I tried to make it work. haha

I remember after I presented it in class for critique, one guy said "It doesn't have color. I don't like it." He meant it as a joke, but I wanted to punch him in the face. XD
