As a Graphic Designer myself, I more than get this.
Great art style, great idea, audio was a bit fuzzy in places.
Why thank you Dr Jesus!
Know what? I've never played Dark Souls.
But as an RPG junkie, I completely get this. Fantastic little animation. Loving the upbeat tune and the swagger, that's how I play my RPG's right enough. Good job.

Thank you doctor!
Seriously, I don't think I've ever watched such a short animation quite so many times. I don't know what it is, whether it's the style or the voice acting, but something just pushes my laughter buttons everytime I watch this. I'd love to see more of this kind of insanity. Great job.
You really used flash?
Seriously impressed. Simple storyline, great voice acting, beautifully done, not surprised you got a first for this project. Only reason you get a 9 is that it continuously repeats, but that's a minor issue. Huge amount of talent here. Well done.

You've got talent for animation, but it's difficult to put into words how I feel about this piece of work.
You've classed it as a music video, so storyline doesn't have to figure heavily, and here there's not much more than a dragon flying around. But to me, music videos should be about A) The music, and B) The visuals. I kind of feel the visuals here are a bit rough around the edges, and the music is just the soundtrack from the film. A /good/ film, but since the film was about a dragon, and was animated, I'm not really seeing the point in this, it's just a shortened copy of the film centring on a dragon flying around. You even used the Night fury dragon design, albeit changed the tail and had some unnecessary glowing bits.
It's not a parody, but if it's a music video, I honestly think you could have done better. It's not exactly 'inspired', more so just putting Toothless the dragon into a short flash. Your style says 'amateur' rather than 'stylised', but you did pick something that was already exquisitely animated, and all you've done is make it worse, I'm afraid.
Don't get me wrong. You've got talent, and you can animate, but you need to put that talent towards making your own original content, or if you're going to do more music videos; don't just use all the pre-existing pieces of a film. I'd like to see more of your stuff, but please do not waste your effort on doing a sequel. Hope this doesn't sound too harsh, and can be taken as constructive criticism.
Honestly enjoyed it.
ON THE MOOOOOONAH.
I'm still waiting for the next one, almost 2 years later.
I'm not going to think about-
-this animation very much, because it's honestly pretty mediocre. It's not crap, but it isn't exactly thrumming the depths of relationships and how they sometimes end. If I'm brutally honest, I think if it's your 'personal story', then you should be spending your time trying to get her back instead of sitting at your computer doing the animation, with the faint hope that she'll watch it and see how you feel. The audio is pretty monotonous, I read the description about how you're not the world's greatest voice actor, but if you want to do more animation's I'd suggest putting more emotion into your stuff.
It's neither good nor bad. It just is. Now go do something about it.
Only those with the most succulent livers...
Love it. End Transmission.
Doesn't matter how many times I watch this...
It's always hilarious.
