  1. Well, it’s the right time of the year for cherry blossoms…

  2. ah Cass I’m jealous, it’s been uncomfortably long since I’ve been to Japan. ~<3

    • Lovely and peaceful, just what we need in times like this. Thank you for sharing this with us!

    Beautiful animation Paul. Hope you feel up to continuing Wapsi soon . . .

  4. Al Cooper

    Love it but I was waiting for one petal, just one, to stick to her nose 🙂

  5. TomHCinMI

    This is wonderful!

  6. Jason Lund

    That was very peaceful. Thank you

  7. Bilbo

    A very restful animation but I second Al Cooper in hoping for a sticky petal :p

  8. Jay

    And now for your moment of Zen

  9. Alex Rosenheim

    Sublime.

  10. Mark N

    Just beautiful Paul

  11. Gavote

    Beautiful. The art is excellent (as always), the animation smooth and the sound design, wow did you nail the sound!

  12. Cyberspooked

    Very cool. What programs did you use?

    • I used Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere. =)

      • cyberspooked

        Cool. so photoshop for the images, after effects for the graphics and premiere for the editing of the video.

        If you ever get a chance check out No Guns Life anime. They use the unreal graphics engine to generate backgrounds for the hand drawn anime. Personally I am always a fan when technology and art are blended together to make something interesting.

    Pail this is awesome I love it!

  14. txmystic

    Fantastic.

    What a peaceful scene! Castle’s really digging the breeze. Great work, Paul!

    Okay…. I know I’m an audio freak. But didn’t anybody else get hit with the soundtrack issues so hard they couldn’t really enjoy the visual?

    And btw, the visual is nice. Castela could use some more detail around the feets, but the expression, posture, etc are right on, and I love the cherry blossom vista. But…. audio freak. Sorry.

    Birds, with a close echo that indicates they were recorded indoors. Wind that is not actually wind but instead pure modulated white-noise. Which is really obvious to my ear because the rise-and-fall of wind, whether in sighs or gusts, is mediated by actual things it flows around, that give it particular qualities or characteristic patterns. There were none of those things in this wind. It just rose-and-fell randomly. The feeling I got from it was sort of an uncanny-valley effect, from something that sounds almost like, but clearly isn’t, wind.

    Maybe most people feel this when they look at a photoshopped image where you’ve got one subject lit brighter or from a different direction than all the others?

    Anyway… I know I’m something like a freak about audio. I know most people don’t get hit with this kind of thing. But I was reading through the comments and I’m amazed because I thought at least somebody else would hear it.

    • Cool, cool.

      Do you have some animations up we could watch/listen to? Where’s your webcomic?
