"Twiddle Thumb"
1780 KB; 1 minute and 34 seconds
Music from Mahoroba ~Heartful Days~, composed by Anne

This is a promotional clip for my church's winter retreat, themed off of James 1:2-4. I got an eager friend to voice Twiddle the thumb, while I myself did the rest of the talking. The style of this piece is blatantly plagiarized from Mahoroba (from which music and sound effects are also taken). As a side note, I either underestimated this project or overestimated my abilities. It took me two weeks to finish as opposed to my estimated 1 week. All the artwork you see was first drawn in Flash, then traced over and recolored in Fireworks. No real paint or crayons, I'm afraid.

Put all dirty thoughts out of your mind - these things be fingers, no matter what other phallic appearances they may take on.

For all you too lazy to look it up :3

James 1:2-4 2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Once again your animations make me feel happy on the inside :3
(Dont mean to sound corny =P)

That's right, I am a strong advocator of... deviants for grammatically correct comments... or maybe just an advocator for comments in general... such a lack of decent comments... ((which... mine is not exactly...))
I am also an advocator for Derek Zoolander's Center for kids who can't read good, and wanna learn to do other stuff good too. :)
