Metamorphosis by ~JyrelRain "It's quite sad, in part, especially when the animal is tricked off the cliff, but has a happy ending, and the wing and flying movements are just brilliant. :aww: I love the storyline, very simple yet effective, and it's really wonderfully animated and the sound effects are awesome, too. I especially love the little touches, like the expressions, and the little thump of the animal's tail when it's fed up." ( Suggested by synconi and Featured by feawen )

I don't understand how something like death could end up being so... maddeningly adorable. That animal.. creature? fluffball was wonderfully designed and the film was very smooth and clear. Wonderful job!

@02:14aww.. he died at the end :sniff: that's so sad, but at least he was able to fly at the end with the butterfly. Nice animation work though!!! It much of took you guys months to animate such a smooth looking film. Did you do this on Maya? *clicking the fav. button like a crazy person while asking question* :)
