"I don't think... I'll find the love I want... In this machine..."


This was a project I've been working on for about a year and a half. The goals were to improve my ability to make backgrounds--because if you know me (or have seen any of my past works/excuses) --they aren't my strongest suit. :3

So what I tried to do was make a mellow episode of a series that mostly only had over-the-top action scenes. This would give me grounds to strengthen an ability to make something beautiful to look at, as well as fun to watch.

To put the story simply: Ilu would love to be a conductor when she grows up. Likewise, her friends would love to be great artists, dancers, and even musicians. But the daily mechanical grind of their lives don't really lead to any real chances to find that love their searching for. By the end of the animation, neither Ilu nor any of her friends reach their goals--but based on Ilu's passion, they all get a bit closer somehow. And that was the kind of animation I wanted to make.

What you see here is what I'm honored to share with you.

(I'd love supportive comments just as much as the next guy, but if you have something critical to add, please--PLEASE--do so too. Thought-rich comments appreciated above all else.)

I appreciate that!  It's the project I spent the longest on ever.  Nearly a two years.

Dang, it really paid off, I like how you showed the characters personality through their actions and the music fits so well. Keep up the good work :)

why do they all look alike and have white hair and stuff?

Because they're the same characters pulled from an animation I made way back when I wasn't very familiar with colors or character designs in general. Plus, where I'm from most people look alike.
