So here's a craptastic version of my animation, The Darkening Sky. Following in its predocessor's (Rain [link] ) footsteps, tDS won both the Academy Award for Best Picture... jk haha

Skills USA Spring 2007
"The Darkening Sky" -Best in State(1st Place) in 3D Animation at State
"The Darkening Sky" -Best in Show in 3D Animation at District 4


While I recieved tons of praise from family and friends, I know this animation has many flaws that I agree* and don't fully agree with.
1) In some places, 2D and 3D just don't mix.
2) I should of stayed with the single voice (my dad's voice).*
3) I spent way too much time modeling my dragon instead of spacing it out and making other things awesome before my deadline.*
4) Some scenes aren't animated and should be.
5) The baby is too cartoon-y.*
6) Some scenes are full 2D and even animated 2D.
7) The dragon flies too slow in the beginning.*

If anyone has any comments feel free, but I prefer if I can get some more critique cause some of my judges at the contest were quite stupid...

"You need to show her mate dead."
Thank you for not watching my animation!

@02:14This is so similar to the story I had thought up for my Character, Zafforon, except the knights killed his wife and two of his children. But he reacted in much the same way. I'm impressed with your animation skills. Very good job!

@02:14That's cool. It's not explained in the animation, but the dragon-slayers that pursued her were actually a mutated race of humans that had been enhanced by the blood of dragons they've slain. They are quite addicted to their blood and chased Arenael to the edge of the continent where she lost them as she swam the seas with orca whales as one herself (she's a shape-shifter). During that time, she was pregnant and when the time came for her to lay her eggs, she still could not go back to the mainland. She laid them on a blizzard cursed island. While she was ok, the eggs were not adapted to the freezing temperatures. Most did not hatch, though two did. One died in the effort of hatching, the other died after 2 days. :(

@02:14wow. See my dragons have no mythical or magical qalities. Everything about them is biologically possible in our world. No fire breathing or shapeshifting. Although they are bullet proof due to their scales being so dense, but if you get under the scales their skin is just as sensitive as human flesh.

@02:14Well, in my world, it isn't because their powers are mythical or magical. They have been a species that has survived for eons and thus reached the pinnacle of their evolution long ago. Their "powers" is their ability to manipulate matter with thought. Kind of like alchemy using the mind as the tool.
