@00:19this was my favorite moment, of this whole thing, with a close second being a neck-and-neck between the appearance of the Pear and the Quail.

Absolutely well-done, sir :icontotallyawesomeplz:

@01:58Well, perhaps not seeing as I got a positive response from people who used to be in this kind of situation.
And it was made specifically for that audience from the initial concept, the reason it's on dA is to share it as an art piece.

This is my animation from my third year at uni, created nearly a year ago
(took me a long time to get the courage)

My second module of the year (this isn't my final animation) required us to create an applied animation - an animation with a purpose rather than to entertain.

I chose bullying as a topic, but instead of bullying amongst teens and such, I chose to do it for the under sixes.

I hope the concept is strong and the message is clear.

If you are going to critique my animation, please note that I will no longer be able to work on this animation, but I am open to any suggestions you have for the future.

I am currently reworking my graduate animation without the time restraints so that will be much better than the one I handed in.

With the reaction to my book for my graduate animation, I am planning a book for Pudge's Problem.

Any questions, feel free to ask!

@03:16I love the message, and I'll admit I wish I'd realized that I could talk to people before, or found someone to talk things out with I was comfortable with. I'm sure your message has caused at least one person to seek help after contemplating whether or not to talk about things with someone. Much love and adoration in the video, and I hope your brother keeps open and isn't picked on any longer.

@03:16It's lovely work, I do adore the childrens book style. This would make a great childrens book.

However, talking doesn't help. I was bullied and when I talked it didn't stop the bullies. People standing up for me didn't stop the bullies. Standing up for myself didn't stop the bullies. What will stop the bullies is to STOP THE BULLIES

Sorry, the topic of bullying has opened some very angry wounds

Wow, that's pretty much what my little brother's problems are. He recently lost his best friend because his friend didn't want to play with him any more.
Then he found himself another little mixed-race friend who also gets excluded. It's bizarre, it's really odd and totally unfair!

That's so sweet. I'm so glad he's not on his lonesome any more!

I did latch onto the other mixed-race looking (Her parents were both black but appeared lighter, and so did she) girl there after a while and we're still friends today :D

Although I felt bad, I can't imagine what my parents went through, being a black and white couple from back in the day.
But what more can I say? 20 years married, 30 years together this year.
