It's not Megaman related but then I want to post my Original works here too. I thought someone would at least be interested to watch. So enjoy watching! :D

Done last February 2013. This took me a month and a week to do. It's actually a part of my school project. My goal here is to create an Animation promoting Philippine Myths and stories. I wanted to make it look like a preview or a teaser only since my goal is just to promote Phlippine Myths. I made a lot of trial and error here, from the art style to the effects etc. I want to make the art original Filipino style/animation as I could. It took me a week to plan all of this. I first thought of animating the character on Photoshop but due to time pressure, I did the character(boy scout) on Flash and the backgrounds on Photoshop. I don't want this short film to look like Flash Animation though.

I chose "maligno" [pronounced as muh-lig-no] in this short film. To most Filipinos "maligno" is a general term for Filipino mythical creatures. However, I had talked to someone who had a real life experiences of this malignant creature and told me that it's a different entity not a general term. Believe it or not, he had encountered "maligno"when he was still a child while on the forest with his brothers. He told me that it was a shape shifter and evil. It causes harm to people. He even told me that it even caused death to one of his family members. I won't go down to details but the short film was inspired by his story. 

Animating is fine, I'm having fun, but when I'm in the post production process, things got frustrating in exporting videos. A lot of trial and error stuff again but I made it finally. Originally, this short film ends with the gunshot but I added an extra scene wherein the boy scout saw the person who shot the creature so it won't feel like a cliffhanger. Well, I'm happy with the result! I came across a lot of trial and error but yeah! I'm happy with the outcome. It's worth my effort!

Yeah, when I was young but he didn't told me that so I won't leave the house at night. Dad usually tell paranormal stories that had happened when he was young before. He always tell those stories when we're having a meal. It was awesome!

You're a Filipino? I figured you might be, but I didn't want to make any hasty conclusions. That's pretty cool; one of my best friends is from the Philippines as well.

Also, this animation is fantastic. Pretty disturbing despite it's cartoon style, and anyone who can make something like that without (over)using blood and the like has my respect.

OF COURSE we would be interested by your original work! You're a boss anyway, so why not watch/admire EVERYTHING you post? Would be a waste just focusing on the megaman stuff...

Personally, I find the original stuff easier to appreciate. It shows you put more of your own thought into character design and development. Awesome textures and light effects here! :nod:

astig!
I remember the stories about this certain "maligno" that one of it's powers is to trap you on a never ending loop and fail to escape...
but there is a way.. what our grandparents said was that you should take of your shirt and then wear it inside out... and then the loop will end.

The title that you chose, Maligno (the spelling alone) means 'wicked one' in spanish.
