The detail packed into :shadows: by `darkmoon3636 is truly amazing. Each of shadows is brilliantly created to bring the whole animation to life and lead to a rather amusing ending. Be sure to watch it the whole way through!

holy crap I'm adjusting horribly to the school schedual. :dead: after staying up until 3am and sleeping until 12 all winter break, going back to the wake-up-at-5am school one is hard D: D: D: I keep coming home and sleeping from about 6pm-8pm (yesterday until 10pm, then I couldn't get back to bed) OH GOD I"M TIRED D: D: D:

Well, the "plot" should be obvious, once again it has no point, but I felt like taking my mind off school. It took two days to make, because, like I said, I keep falling asleep. D; -_-,o SPIT BUBBLE TO THE RESCUE!

ya, so there's a candle giving off light (a candle that flickers a whole lot for some reason. IT"S MAGICAL MMKAY? ) and the dude takes the opportunity to make shadows with his hands. I like the fact that the hands are just circles and look nothing like the shape that comes out. Anyways, he makes a monster type-thing, but *LE GASP!* it's magical...or something, and chases him off the screen *INSERT LOOP HERE*

EDIT: Ok...several people have been telling me that the candle looks like a duck/chicken/goose. :confused: the first time I saw one of these comments I thought they were joking, the second time I thought they were making a joke at the first dude. But no, there's been like 6 comments like this. I'm just...not seeing it. Can someone draw a picture or something showing how the candle possible looks like a bird? It's weirding the heck out of me, I just can't visualize it.

Hehe, I love that part about his hands that are still circles regardless of the shadows' shapes.

The candle looks more like a cup(ish) than a bird.

After the first cycle (which ended with me giggling uncontrollably) I watched the second cycle still with a big smirk :D I tried to focus on the candle that's supposed to look like a duck, but I am having a lot of trouble fitting a duck into that shape, really.

Maybe they did not mean a duck seen from the side, but from the front / back or something :P

Anyways, the animation is great and I love the ending :bow:

Congrats on the DD!!

But, the shadows are a little bit off... if you pushed them slightly to the right, thats fix it.

But, making 2d pixels look even vaguely 3d is hard, so good job.
