It's hardly an animation, I know. But I wanted to try something new since the last animation I did was 3 years ago and super unproffesional, here's a [link] . But still it has 18 frames and took me a LOT of time. Next animation I upload will be better I promise ______________ Sasuke (c) Masashi Kishimoto Art (c) Tanei

What was to be quick side project turned into a beast that took me over 3 months... Three months of forsaking and returning, three months of occasional work suicides and sleepless nights...
In contrast to my previous flash works, this one was supposed to be based on smoothness and simplicity - the charms of internet flash i used to ignore until now.
Unfortunately some scenes in there are far from simple...
Enough nagging. Watch the movie.
(There are quite many people that get confused by the ending. Just to let you know - yes, it's supposed to be the way it is.)
It took some time to squeeze out the alien fairy u hear nabobotic skin jelly like creature, drawed from the depths of the seven seas, holy being capable of psycho luminescence, mutated angel who’s just escaped from containment…have it as u like...it’s all about imagination. That’s what fantasy stands for.

This is my entry for the AOTW#13 Anti-Bullying movement contest organized by fav.me/d78q320
When I stumbled upon this contest's subject, it gave me so much inspiration that I immediately had all the panels being painted in my head - something exceptional since usually, inspiration runs away from me. I guess it happened because I have some personal experience with bullying, so the subject kind of tugged at my heartstrings. Anyways, I thank Brandon (who is the founder of the group) from the bottom of my heart for organizing these contests about such sensitive subjects. I think it's a really great and generous initiative which, I hope, will be echoed widely in the dA community.
This is my first flash comic ever and even though it was difficult to put it together , I didn't die during the process. Something to celebrate! Panels drawn in Paint Tool SAI, blur and texts added in Photoshop, SWF file put together in Adobe Flash CS3.
EDIT : Lot of people said I made that deviation only to hit close to home and thus, to gain popularity. It's NOT true : please remember that I made it for a small contest. I NEVER expected this would be suggested as a DD, I did NOT wanted it to be widespread. It's crappy, poorly done, I made it in a rush and wouldn't even call this "art".
Then, for people saying the comic is overdramatic an unbelievable because I went too far in the situations, for example, with the "knife under the throat" : that scene DID happen to me at school, and I had to go to justice for that. So please, don't say such a thing could never happen.
And now, for people saying the girl is to pretty to be bullied : since when only unattractive people get harassed ? And you know, beauty is a subjective thing : some people will find you good-looking, and some others will think you're ugly as hell and thus, might be bullying you. The girl in the comic is not supposed to look pretty at all, just average. The problem comes from the semi-realism style.
EDIT 2 : I know it kinda looks like Yuumei's work. It's because I had to stick to her Flash Comic template, due to the lack of time since it was a contest with a deadline, and also because Adobe Flash was a real pain to use. I wanted to do it otherwise but couldn't. Then, Yuumei and I appear to have semi-realistic anime styles, so they look similar; the reason could be that both of us were highly influenced by Takeshi Obata's style. But let me clear that once and for all : I am NOT trying to mimic her. I am NOT taking my inspiration from her neither.
Some words about the submission's message itself:
First, the main character may be a girl, but I tried to keep the text gender-neutral enough (except for the parts dealing with appearance) to apply to boys as well, so they can relate too.
Then, I know that not all bullied children become what I call "broken adults". Thanks God, many of them manage to find inner strength as well as support from their families or friends, and eventually succeed in getting out of this crap without lasting scars. But I did this as a tribute, not only to all victims in general (from school scapegoats to those who are being harassed at home or at work), but also and above all for victims who, even once they've grown, simply can't heal their pains and remain consumed by their fears, affected by traumas (what I called "cracks"), and end up with mental illnesses which might last for years. Hence the title, "Broken Adults". Because some of them simply never heal.
So please, don't tell me things like "Yeah u suffered a lot but u can move on by thinking about how life's beautiful and how ur loved by ur family and friends (^.^)". Yes, I know that support from people who appreciate you is a precious help in the healing process when you've been bullied for years. But what about people who don't have a family anymore (because their relatives rejected them or passed away) and can't managed to get any friends even with the greatest effort and lots of kindness? Don't tell me it is impossible to be utterly alone : it IS possible, and I personally know a few examples. And for former victims who are alone and thus, lack love and support even in their adult life, moving on is often nearly impossible and they may drown in self-hatred, depression and suicidal tendencies.
Indeed... How can you enjoy living, when you loathe yourself and are still haunted by your past - when that past is nothing more than a collection of depressing, even traumatizing memories? How can you enjoy living when, having been torn apart, you can't even be comforted by your family or friends since everyone is shunning you? How can you enjoy living with solitude for only company?
I think people don't take enough into consideration the harm bullying can do in the long run. Many persons seem to think that once you become adult, you just have to move on and be happy all of a sudden. But the consequences of a tormented past do not clear with a mere snap of the fingers. You cannot DECIDE to forget everything and start over, it's not that easy : it's a constant struggle that some victims may never win.
