Wait for it to finish loading, sorry I couldn't put a loading bar here, I'll try to do it when I do another animation.

Special thanks to :icondansyron: for his amazing After Effects tutorial and his extremely helpful advice along the way of me animating this.

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

I absolutely love the game Journey and I'm glad that this is my tribute picture to such an amazing game. I had this idea for an animation with the small cloth pieces going around the character while I was watching a Let's Play of Journey. The way those cloth pieces just twirl around your character seemed to be really mesmerizing to me. Also, this picture doesn't contain spoilers, so no worries there haha.
This is also my 70th deviation! Hooray!

Done in Sai, Photoshop CS3, After Effects CS3, and Adobe Flash CS3.
Song used: Nascence by Austin Wintory from the Journey Soundtrack.
Journey belongs to thatgamecompany

Good grief, the emotional attachment to this game, this just brings all the feels back.

So I have seen a lot of artwork for this incredible game on deviantart, but so far your tribute is the only one to truly express the feel of the game. There was always movement and the ever present breeze, but the sound is an INTEGRAL part of the experience and I think that that's a big part of what's missing with the other artwork I've seen.

This is an amazing representation that truly does the game Journey justice, you should be very proud of it!  X)

this is really cool. Looks really advanced to create and I had no idea you could ad sound to a file in deviant art.

I find this one the most interesting because for one it moves, two it's cute. and.......... it has sound? whoa! i thought i was looking at a gif. haha.

Very nicely done. Something like this i can only begin to figure out how you did it.

It took a bit of understand Flash at first, cause the first time I had done this was with this picture, so there was much trial and error. The great thing about Flash is that not only are the images in Flash more clear than gifs, but you can implement sound into them! I thought "Why not mix the two?" :D
