WARNING: there is some wonky, choppy animation in this. I rushed this quite a bit for my 3D Character final project and it is far, far from my best work. I will probably fix this up later, however, for now, it is what it is.

Some parts are decent and the ending is really tight but for everything good about this, there ten bad aspects of it.  If you comment, please keep in mind this was rushed and is not the best work I could do or am capable of. It was a final I needed to get done quickly and most of the work was spent modeling and rigging MiniNova. I do plan on fixing this but it will be a while until it's up to my standards. I'll probably do one scene over at a time. Anyway, here it is. 

The skeleton thing is attempting to stab the little girl with it's blade but MiniNova stops him and kicks the holy cow out of him.

Modeling, rigs, all art and animation be me and done in 3DS Max 2014

Oh, I wouldn't worry about him, MiniNova has extreme powers that haven't yet been revealed.

That is if he has the right beam technology to defeat him.

MiniNova is hard to beat. He's close to Super man's strength.

Does he have these beams, cuz it's impossible to defeat him without these beams which are his powers:
Wave
Ice
Plasma
Phazon
Dark
Light
Annihilator
Hypermode
Magma
Nova
Lightning
Acid
Venom
Laser
Spiral (Electric)
Spark
Red Phazon

He can become a supernova which would literally obliterate anything.

He doesn't need a beam, he's a supernova basically.

dude, I'm gonna be blunt with you: STOP THIS. STOP THIS RIGHT NOW. remember that poll you did 4, 5 days ago? The one where you asked if you should even bother posting your most recent artwork, since you assumed no one cared?
Remember these guys?: :icontheraddork321: :iconmrmw: :iconnamelessfocks: :iconrockettreverie: :iconkingalcadrios: :iconcrossdress2: :iconrawflower: :icongreen-bullseye:

What those 8 people (+ myself) posted on that poll was not just comment; it meant something: that they were dedicated to not just you, but your artwork as well; so much so that they took time out of their day just to help you get though one of your bad phases. You needed their support then more than ever, and they gave it to you.

Now, I'm not calling myself an expert or anything, but that's dedication right there.

Remember that conversation we had (albeit brief)? I told you that I didn't "plan on leaving you any time soon". By that I meant the only reason I would is if either I left DA, or you did.

Now pause. let that sink in for a sec.

Why did I want to stick by you? So I could help you through your tough times not only then, but from then onward as well. And (although you might think otherwise) I don't plan on breaking that commitment as long as both our pages are still active, and when I make promise like that, I NEVER break it.

Buddy, your a great guy and a fantastic artist on top of that. And I can say for sure that I (and many others) would hate to see a guy like you go to waste.

-Brandon

It isn't going to matter even if I don't because eventually, it's going to happen. I know it. If I lose this place, I lose everything and I won't hesitate to pull the trigger at that point. I don't want to go but it might happen.

What you said hit me like a hammer to the knees. It hurt. I put hours into this and I know it isn't perfect but it's not ny best work and I also said it was rushed. I had a deadline to meet and I couldn't put the time needed I to it to make it work. I wasn't going to even post this here because I was afraid it would be ridiculed and you did just that. I already know what's wrong with it and I never wanted to post it but I did because a friend encouraged it.
Now I feel like a joke because of what you said about it. I worked hard on it and that means nothing to you.

(Sigh) I'm really sorry ,Brandon, it's just me. I'm so sorry I gave you a hard time. I don't know what's wrong with me anymore but I've had enough of it. It's time I started fighting again. I'm not going to let this crap rule me and I'll be fanned if it hurts the people I care about!

Imreally sorry, buddy, you ARE a good friend. You also mean the world to me. You and Sebastian are some of my best friends here and I do mean that. I'm real sorry again. :hug: I hope I didn't upset you. As a symbol of my remorse, pick something, anything. I'll draw it, just for you. :)

Sorry if I'm butting in the conversation, but I want you to know that what I write is always what I think. Never would I think of lying to you, dude, and I'm sure that your other friends thinks that way. We know that you've reached rough paths in yor way for becoming an animator, and no matter how it seems, we ALWAYS have your back. You just need to tell us that you're in need of a friend and we'll be there as soon as we can. I sound cheesy saying this, but it's the truth. And I mean it 100%

I'll admit I was a little shaken by your first reply there, but I'm really glad that we both understand each other now! It's all good!

you REALLY don't have to draw anything for me, but.... well, I've always wanted to see your take on the pokemon "Lucario" (he's EVERYWHERE on the internet, so you've probably heard of him by now ;))

but seriously, thanks a lot fo doing this, man. it really means a lot to me :hug:

I really mean it. :aww: I owe it to you, I did you wrong, Brandon.

I shouldn't have said anything to begin with. I've been so negative since mom died. I was always an optimistic person but when she died, I just.. shut down. I gave up and stopped caring. No more. I HAVE to fight this with all of my might. I haven't been myself but it's time I took the fight to the other guy. 

I want to. I'm honestly not into Pokemon but I'll gladly draw that for you. :) 

No, thank YOU. Thank you for sticking by me, even after I caused you so much grief. You are a real friend.
