Venus Celestial Power, Make Up!
Here's an animated video that I finished months ago, but didn't get around to post until now.
I consider it really pretty, and I put a lot of hard work into this, only to put all the pieces together and realize that this is not what I wanted at all. This looks nothing like anime transformations I look up to, even though it's pretty interesting at its own. At the same time, I can't "fix it" by adding or deleting some scenes, I can only redo it completely to get what I want, starting with the entire concept, or maybe even with the music. But that will probably take another couple of months at best.
Posting something you aren't satisfied with feels weird, but it's also the first step towards admitting that the work has been done and has not been done in vain, it's just that I didn't initially realize the concept was wrong.
I'm not saying it's bad though. Watch it! It's pretty!
