It Was Self Defense! (animation) by The-Directors-Cut It Was Self Defense! (animation) by The-Directors-Cut
So here is another older animation I found. Its an evolution of the one here:
the-directors-cut.deviantart.c…

This was supposed to be practice for working on a game. That didn't go well. I can't program. I wish I could. Its fucking confusing to me. If I'm gonna learn, I need help learning or I could have a programmer by my side who wants to work on ideas with me. The former would be preferable, because I am already really busy as it is. 

Oddly, this is the first time in 2 years (up to the point of making this) of animation that I had ever really worked with action. 
Some of you might point to this and say, "hey Director, did you work with action in this?"

Well I would say no. I would say that this is more of a B-Style Horror with violence. If you consider the violence action, then sure. 
Not too long after making this one, I wound up working on this here:
youtu.be/6b0vXYEIh9E

While you're over there watching those animations, why not subscribe so that way you can see more when they are finished. Thats normally where I post My larger finished projects.  

This one has bits of action. Shooting. Running. Punching? Fighting. I found out that action requires tons of patience to work on. I need to extend my patience for sure. Would love to work on some more action later on. Maybe I'll do some action horror, since I will be attempting to do more horror themed things from now on.

There's self defense, and then there's going too far and murdering the guy.

If they are still moving, you self defensed wrong.

You mean murdered wrong, right?  Cause self defense doesn't exactly entail killing the other person.  If it truly was self defense, it would have stopped after breaking the legs.  The destruction of the spine is where it crossed the line, and the broken skull was just cementing this.

Self defense would be "the defense of one's person or interests, especially through the use of physical force, which is permitted in certain cases as an answer to a charge of violent crime."

It doesn't necessarily entail murder, because that's illegal. If he simply defended himself, he could have just hit a key part of the enemy to prevent them from moving, yes, but not going so far as to cause death. While it is a personal belief that the actions of the secondary equine were going too far, I must admit, the animation is very clean, practically professional in complete honesty.

That's not to say you can't kill in self defense, like if someone is trying to kill you for instance, but if you subdue the attacker non lethally first and then keep going afterwards until they're dead, you'd be in the wrong.

I don't know, maybe that's just me.
