@03:21I think as long as you are happy with your life and what you are doing, you are doing it right. I sure as hell know how it is to be little on money, or other important things. A lot of respect from me for choosing this difficult path!

If there's a way to support you, tell me. I'm just a student from Germany, so I guess I'd not be able to afford one of your works, but I'd bet that there are other ways to help you :)

I've already shared some excerpts of the above hand drawn animation, but this is the final version with all the frames and with my original music. I drew each frame one by one, there are over 3,000 frames in total.

You can view some frames individually and the sketches and music in progress in this blog post. I made this in a rather minimalist way. It's meant to be some kind of short video clip for the music. It was really time consuming, I hope I can do longer projects in the future.

The video starts with an introduction showing my studio, the lion appears on the computer and walks, walks, walks... the lion transforms itself in strange faces, the faces become a skull, the skull becomes a flower.

So... as i was picking my eyeballs up from off the ground, this reminded me of the project i had to do for class once. But you did it like a pro. I can't believe you drew all that! I thought it was all done in Flash or Photoshop/Illustrator. I loved when you did the subtle color/shading changes. When the room was filled in complete color my head exploded. However i didn't really care for the weird heads and the middle/end. I thought you hit the nail on the head with the idea you where going for and obviously no one else could have done it. The Technique was interesting with the color shading and subtle changes over time that you don't instantly recognize. And as i said before... I had to put my eyes back in my head.
Overall this was a phenomenal piece. Keep up the great work.
What do you think?

Awesome pencils, man!
I cannot fathom the time and effort it took to put this together!
I would love to undertake something like this myself: have all the time and resources at my disposal and just CREATE!
Is it made for some use other than a music video or are you showcasing your myriad skills in one piece?

How long did it take from concept to completion, any idea?

WELL DONE

You are unnatural. Your art, perspective, music, animation, EVERYTHING. You are by far the best artist I have ever come by in my entire life, and I doubt I will find anyone better in a VERY long time.

@03:21You are an amazing artist, Ben, and I want to see more! Unfortunatly, I have already seen all of your submissions to deviantArt, and I sure as hell know that quality needs time. So I am left here, waiting for new releases :|

One question is popping up in my mind, though. You spend a lot of time on art, and your equipment was expensive as well from what I can gather. What do you do for a living? I cannot see you make money with deviantArt, or do you? :)
