Hello there! I know this is kind of heartbreaking but this is the first part of an animated gif I want to draw... the second part should be brighter (this little girl will be welcomed to school by a caring teacher)
I am a solitary man
Who gets nervous when too many souls
Shroud my own shadow. I hold my breath
hanging on until they exit my personal space
So I may reclaim this private estate for one.
I have dark thoughts.
Sometimes, I think about doing things.
But I would never actually do anything.
Everyone has dark thoughts.
This took some time and I thank everyone for support and reasouces. I just wanted to see this come to life its been stuck in my head for dayz.
Lost in a dark secret world of pride, vanity and villainy, Dorian locked up his soul where no one could see it. Godlike in beauty and youth, the Victorian Adonis preyed on the naïve affections of others, though he himself felt little to nothing. Yet all was not perfect for this ageless, exquisite creature. For even deities are inclined to melancholy, jealousy, doubt and regret. Wasted time made him hard and cold in life and only through death did he find himself again.
-State your superhero name and power.
-I am the Empathiser, and my power is to feel your pain.
-I’m …not in pain.. at the moment…
-Oh, not just physical pain, although you maybe shouldn’t have had that burrito for lunch. I feel how difficult this interviewing process is for you. It’s quite a responsibility, but I feel sure you can do it!
-Thanks! How does your power help defeat evil?
-What a great question! I told you you could do a great job here! Now to answer your question: you would be surprised how many villains just need a little bit of reassurance, some validation, to know that they have been heard. Their evil-doing is usually a cry for attention; I give them a safe space in which to vocalise their hurt......and then the hero can quite easily defeat them.
-Sounds ideal! So, how come you are available at the moment?
-I understand. You are reluctant to commit to hiring me until you know the circumstances surrounding my previous job.
-Well, maybe you could tell me some more about that job?
-I worked with Vortex…
-Ah Vortex! Now there’s a hero! He’s been pretty quiet lately.
-Well, after we worked together for a while, he found that he no longer felt the need to prove himself, and was able to successfully work out his issues regarding his father. He has retired from being a superhero to take over his father’s alpaca farm.
-Um. How interesting. And previous to Vortex?
-I worked with Vengeance?
-Ah yes! Another superhero who has been quiet of late…
-Well, I helped her see that her real issue was fear of rejection, stemming from her disrupted childhood. Once she resolved those issues, she no longer felt the need for vengeance.
-Wait a minute…
-Uh-oh. I’m sensing you are concerned that I am actually a supervillain, removing so many superheroes from circulation. What an interesting hypothesis, you are really knocking this interview out of the park!
-….Thanks. I think we’ll get back to you.
- I understand. You fear being the rejector. But you can overcome this fear!
- We won’t be hiring you, Empathiser.
- I knew you could do it. Kudos to you!
Cats have found the passage to parallel Universes. Just like the Demon's in our closet, and the Monster's under our bed.

RE: THE NUMBER TWO
Okay so I just uploaded these all as one video so I will do a timecode to make it easier for REmixers. Mainly the ones at the end was my original take, but I was practicing my editing skills (on these I messed around with time remapping) and added a few sound effects.
FONT = League Gothic
00:00 = RE: THE NUMBER TWO (TEXT);
00:08 = SAME AS ABOVE BUT W/O TEXT;
00:15 - 00:17 - BLANK GREEN FRAME;
00:18= BRB TEXT;
00:23 = SAME AS ABOVE BUT W/O TEXT;
00:31 = RE: THE #2;
00:37 = RE: THE NUMBER TWO (TEXT) W/ BLINKING SOUND FX;
00: 45 = SAME AS ABOVE BUT W/O TEXT AND SOUND;
00: 53 = BRB TEXT AND BLINKING EYES SOUND FX;
01:02 = SAME AS ABOVE BUT W/O TEXT AND SOUND;
01:09 = BLINKING EYES SOUND FX AND #2 TEXT;
01:16 = SAME AS ABOVE BUT W/O FOUND FX AND TEXT; AND
01:23 - END = RANDOM #2 FLIPS WITH BLINKING EYES SOUND FX.
ZIP FILE ATTACHED = (large frames/psd layers/25fps original resource video)
p.s. My stop motion program doesn't give me an option of exporting at 24fps so I have to use the 25fps instead. For this version, I made a loop after I exported, played around with time remapping and exported in another program at 24FPS.
