@01:52That's unbelievable. When she leaves the colors' gone and time has stopped, and when she's in the tower, everything is back to normal. I say that's good and bad. She can't even leave.

@00:24I hate it when that happens! I used to play a game I couldn't remember the name of and it took me years to find it again, felt really awesome to finally find it! I'm glad this made you happy.

@01:02Oh no! Time has stopped because she's out of the clock tower! This is what happens when a certain person leaves.

CaraKhan Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
heh, yep! they emphasize that the most at ringling, you'll be taking a few life drawing classes, and your first year is all core stuff,
like color, form, perspective, all that good stuff. If you show you're already tackling that, they'll know you're serious :) Good luck!
AlanPerry Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I know what you mean, when you've got someone looking over your shoulder telling you you need to do this and that, it can be hard. But still a great piece, hope to see more!

@01:45What a gem of a movie!
The girl, the city...the clocktower-everything
was done so beautifully!
Fantastic film, although the one thing that I think could have been done better was the music when she stepped out of the clocktower for the first time- I think the stopping of the music was a bit abrupt...
But other than that, bravo!!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-04-19
The Clocktower by ~Arenyth Wow! The images of this movie are so beautiful and joyful! This is a nice concept too. This is a student project of high quality. Nice and smooth animation and creamy lighting like I love them. ( Suggested by nickeatworld and Featured by feawen )
This is brilliant, a story of a girl who wishes to be of the outside world but can't due to circumstance. A masterpiece illustrating the benefit of sacrifice and the belief that we cannot have our cake and eat it too
A bright set of coloring and a gentle tone that sets the way for a pretty much happy ending that leaves us with a fondness for the character
We feel for her and hope that she will one day see those balloons without ever having to spin again.
All in all it was a good piece and beautiful message
What do you think?
