@00:01haha it's just that i haven't been active on deviant for quite some time now, i actually heard some music that reminded me a lot of Substantia and really had to watch it again :)

and being honest yeah it does seem different watching it again, now i feel like i fully understand the meaning behind it and appreciate the animation work behind it as i'm studying animation myself now.

i'll be sure to visit deviant a lot more often! :D

@03:55I love how the symbolism is clear, and yet open to interpretation at the same time.

It's true - once your heart has broken, little shows of affection simply run off, but as shown with the comet, you aren't hurt as easily either. But there is that one person who can melt your heart and turn you into that drop of life-giving water.

I would like to ask you a question: after 4 years, do you see Substantia any differently? Is there something you saw in it now, that you had not seen the first time?

Feel free to come back any time, as often as you want. You don't need to wait another 4 years. ;)

I have to say this is quite possibly the most beautiful piece of animation I have ever witnessed.
The way the concepts flow so smoothly together like water, the visualizations simply breathtaking, The meaning behind it; simple perfection, the cycle, the death, the life, the love, the beauty. This is truly a masterpiece, and brainchild with the power to hold pure wonder in it's hands.

@05:26Well your very welcome, It was well worth my time, someday I aspire to animate like you do, but I simply don't have the money right now to afford the programs I learned to use in school such as maya and 3Dmax. That and I'm still in college learning how, but still an amateur like me needs work like yours to look up to.

Money is not an excuse. See if there are any free PLE's (Person Learning Edition) of 3ds max and Maya. I'm sure there is one for Maya, don't know about Max.
Another option you have is to take a look at Blender. It's an open-source and free 3D software, and very nice animations have been done with it.
Reply
:iconpickles4les:
Pickles4LES Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2008
Really? I will look into it, I have tried several free programs, such as Kirkathia and Google Sketchup and found them all tiresome, and deficient. But I have heard good things about Blender I just didn't know it was free, and I'm pretty sure both of the student editions for max and maya are both $100+ so I will find a way it just might take a while.

It looks great, its shot great (if you can call it that in 3D heh), its cut great, I love the sound design, and you could write novels about the story.

Fav. for sure.
