    Once I develop some more I might challenge Captain Disillusion with some Anti-hero based Theme idea taunts ^^
    Puzzle and challenging potential just popped.. Mr. MisIllusion. (TBA). I might be a bit of a wordsmith, with.. tools in the form of google, which turn out to be OP when you use it sneakily. But first.. to learn some more about artwork &.. video stuff. ALL research material to me currently :D

      No No No... Stop motion is not better than CGI... Nothing beats having having a physical presence on screen. Sure use puppets and stop motion then clean it up with computers, but full on CG? Never. Just look at the Star Wars prequals... Just look at Jurassic Park, widely regarded as the movie to start the whole CGI thing. But in the whole film less there's than 15 minutes of CGI. And that's why it still holds up to this day and looks better than any of the newer ones.

          Don't worry! From the height the floppy fell and when you take in consideration its weight, it didn't break. It's actually fine
