This was made for school originally, for my editorial design class. I got to print it and book it like an actual comic book.

I actually had to color it in a really short period of time so its full of mistakes, please forgive me and be kind not to point them up. :heart: I also know its not an actual animation, and that it goes too fast, but I have no time to fix it now.

Based on a short 4-koma I did on valentines day, waffle was born. A short story about Mateo, a student with an image to keep and a secret fondness for plushies.

I went emo about this homework in my journal not too much ago, and people went and gave me words of pure strenght. Thank you guys. This is for you all. You know who you are, and there's a little something for you hidden in here, pay attention! :heart:

Special thanks to ~Lan-Ishikiori , she helped me to ink all the backgrounds and kept me awake those sleepless nights before the deadline. Thankyou~! :heart:

Also thanks for helping me with the translation, the plot holes and all the laughs. Seems I didnt kill you in the end huh? x3. Also he suggested me this category <<; so blame him if you dont find this funny xP

Criticism discouraged as usual.

Story and art by Arechan (with the help of some lovely peeps)
All music and loops from :heart: *hopes its not taken down*
Loader thingy, thanks to ~sergep

Cookies for the one who guesses what book is Mateo reading ^^

I really love your work

one of the reasons I became a member is so that I can make your work my favorite
actually I have watched it a lot of times already
by the way are you still a student because you are saying that it is a project kind of thing because you said it is a deadline

how long did you do it
and what kind of software did you use
and did you use photoshop ???

haha sorry for the many questions I"m really into it sorry !!! :sadness:

I really liked it ssooo much !!!! :love:

please reply !!! thanks so much
more power!!!
Arechan Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2009  Hobbyist
dawww thanks! :hug: how long? I don't exactly remember by now xD; I did it a long time ago! but knowing me it must have taken me a week or two to draw and color, and I "animated" it in one afternoon. I used Photoshop 7 and Flash MX o v o;; x3 don't worry about the questions! thanks for asking! hope it helped! o vo >v< :hug:
