Hey Matees - been awhile as always since I posted a large project, but here is one that was meant to be a small project that turned into a large one. I originally wanted this drawing and soundtrack to be out on Halloween but welp, you know how that went, it didn’t happen. So ten days later I hope you’re still in costume because here it is.

I cannot remember precisely how long this took me to make, but I think I started it maybe 3 or 4 days before Halloween, so I think this drawing took me over the course of 13 to 14 days to make. The palette I made had 15 colours, but I only ended up using 14 of them. Animation is frames long and believe me, the fire was tricky to do, and so was the refraction of light on the surrounding objects. The “cabin in the woods” [Lol if you get the reference] was probably the most fun thing to draw in this project. I apologize to pixel purist who hate the I used a form of dither for the stars haha.

At first, I was recording myself as I worked on this, but the footage ended up becoming more than movie maker could load in a reasonable time so I had to scrap it. The song itself, I believe uses 7 instruments, and I actually started working on it a month and a half ago, but came back to it recently. Pretty fun to work on.

One thing I do think I could’ve done better that I was just too lazy to redo at that point, was create a bit more variation in the ground level area where I awkwardly line dithered dirt: the stone texture is probably more appealing.

Thanks for reading if you read all of that, and I hope you enjoy the animation :)

brullov (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/11/2017 11:20

Good style. I'd like to play a game with such pa. The atmosphere reminds me the old League of Legends Twisted Treeline map.

[Note so I don't repons to each comment individually because I dont want to spam you guys and I'm unsure if you guys like being notified that I responded to your comment or if you'd rather me reply to them but without notifying you. idk its complicated. I reply to all comments but not in separate message but yeah - I think its psam, but it sucks there no like mass comment feature on this site that would allow me to make a single comment where it will notify all of you with an individual response without have to post multiple messages waiting 30 in between. So anyway without further ado  - here it is, and also Im sorry if some of you do want notifs and my method of commenting aggitates that process in that you will not recves notif of this reply :/ ]

@Jok - Thank you!!!

@Tosych - Thank you dude! I appreciate it 

@Ireenart - Thanxious matee :)

@Harmonica - Thank you! The palette was pretty easy to make haha - and I added the star animation because it looked plain up there imo, so I glad you liekd it dude

@Damian - Thank you dude! at first I was going to upload the drawing without any animation, but I'm glad I changed my mind on that

@TRUEvector - 

@ArcadeHero - Thanks so much buddy! love your art and I look forward to your next pieces

@SilverMantis- I really kinda wanted it to be *real time* fast though. But I supposed a couple notches down wouldn't hurt anything. Me personally - I like the speed :/

@Lucas - Thank you! glad you think so

@Mandrill - Wow! I always get this feeling of being recognized by like a sensei whenver you comment haha, you're so good and have been on this site for like ever - thanks a ton, and I definitely think if I didn't add the god and the stars to the sky, it would look much more plain.

@Theoden - Thank you! that was what I was going for - I wanted it to look `ALIVE` lol

@wonman321 - Thanks! Glad you picked up on it

@I I I I - Thank you! She was fun to draw -- and animate :)

neight.bit (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/11/2017 06:47

I love everything about this

|||| (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 11/11/2017 04:48

I like the 'overlord'  figure in the background of  this lively composition.

wonman321 (Level 6 SWAT) @ 11/11/2017 03:55


Stunning piece! It look so alive

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/11/2017 03:50

Fantastic work, I love how everything is vibrant and alive.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 11/11/2017 03:35

Absolutely stunning piece! The house alone would have been amazing but the creature in the back brings this to another level.

Lucas- (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/11/2017 03:10

Man, you're doing an amazing job

Silver Mantis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/11/2017 02:01

Very awesome! I think if you slowed down the animation just a few frames, it would be perfect. It just appears to be sped up. Your color contrast is wonderful, great job! 

arcadehero (Level 6 GBC) @ 11/11/2017 02:00

Very impressive! Top notch work, buddy c:
