@00:45This video reminds me so much of how a friend and I can communicate, we can only meet online, never in real life. We RP about things like 2pHetalia and demons and stuff, but I keep saying to myself, I will never be able to meet her, I am they boy, she is the girl, and the glass is our computer screens.

@03:07wow...this is so sad...
It's about a girl and a boy separated by an unbreakable glass.

Story and Animation: *Mikeinel
Music and Sound: Daniel James (HybridTwo: [link])
Inspiration: Someone dear to me before...

Download Music: [link]

It was originally posted on Youtube ([link]) as a gift for a friend before.

Since the original was using a copyrighted music, I commissioned Daniel James (from HybridTwo) a track for this so I can post it here in DA as a film.

In this newer version, I decided to add/improve a few things. They're not so noticeable, but I feel much more contented with them.
There are those that are left unedited, but I feel like it's best to leave it that way.

Very first shot: [link]

Artist Comment:
Thank you everyone for liking it!
Especially the viewers in Youtube for giving it a million views;
People here in DA for giving my pageviews a boost; (And making fanarts too!)
And people in Newground for supporting me to remove stolen posts.
Thank you very much!

I also want to thank `InpuUpUaut for approaching and inviting me to post this video here in DA.

And lastly, of course, a friend back then for giving me the inspiration and push to finish my very first complete animation.

Update: (12/18/2009)
Thank you again, `InpuUpUaut, for having this animation in DD!
And to those who suggested this to be in DD. Thank you all!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-18
Draw with Me :Video: by *Mikeinel I usually try to avoid feature popular deviations to support the 'unknown' deviants but in this time, I have to do it. I invited Mikeinel to submit this video because I thought it was amazing and when I got to the deviation to feature it, it was over 9000 views... I got suggestions for this animation more than 20 times... This deviation have to be a Daily Deviation and today is the day. If you did not saw it yet, you should ^_^ ( Featured by InpuUpUaut )

So the girl cut off her arm for him?
azelsoras Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
So, I'm confused- he broke through the glass; he lost the use of his hand (or lost that hand entirely), but he did break through it. Why, then, were they still separated, despite there now being a way through?
darkebeast Featured By Owner 6 days ago  New member
The wall seems to try to stay where it is. When he broke it, the shards shot back, cutting his arm off and reforming the wall.

that was really cute but what happens to them after that? I want to see more of this? it seams like an incomplete story.
KKobayashi575 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 16, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
I can't believe that an animation, which was only 3 minutes long, was able to move me. Great job! :)

The story and music were very original, so kudos for that! The fluidity of the body movements were also good too. They all compliment and help to express the emotions of happiness, joy, and sadness. The only thing that caught me off guard was the fact that she gave her hand to the boy. The incentive is sweet, yet unusual. (but not in a negative way of course) 

This is the first time I've ever seen your work but after seeing this, I'm very curious to see your other works. Keep up the good work! You have my full support!

D-did she just cut off her arm for him!?! So creepy but sweet.
