i did this one for the Fairy tale challenge. It's a Inca legend, the story of Puente del Inca ( The Bridge of the Inca).

This bridge exists really (look at the reference photo), and has a legend to explain its existence. The story says that long time ago the Inca's prince fell sick. His priests prayed and did everything they could, but nothing happened, So they sent some brave man to a magic manantial, which water would cure the prince.
But they founded a river in there way, so they sited down and tried to find a solution to their problem. Suddenly, the earth tremor and a giant stone, made by the god of sun and the godess of moon, came from the sky and landed over the river, creating that way a bridge.
Obviously, they founded the magic water and the prince was cured

I'm still qith no time for this piece. My idea was to do it as a comic, wuth the story in boxes.... may be after the challenge.
If you find any errors in the text, please let me know.

Cool update. The animation is kinda weird though, only one part  of it moves and looks awkward. I think the comic would be the better route for this :)

I've written the story in the description, and corrected the colours... but i dont see it ....

Without the story its hard to tell whats going on. Give a breif summary?

That is cool!

I find it odd how it changes the frame though,it's annoying if you just want to look at it.
