:OvercomeYourself: by Ugghhzilla :OvercomeYourself: by Ugghhzilla
...an idea I had a while back that I finally knocked together.

Pretty much an excuse to try out the transition but based on the idea that to achieve anything you have to overcome one major obstacle yourself.

Any suggestions for improvements or a less poncy title appreciated

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-12-21
Sometimes an emote comes along with not only beautiful coloring, perfect timing and wonderfully executed expressions, but with an actual moral lesson that gets you right where you live. :OvercomeYourself: by =Ugghhzilla is just such an emote. While you're contemplating yourself, be sure to check out the rest of =Ugghhzilla's magnificent gallery as well. ( Featured by livius )

As I clicked on this deviation, I watched it and wondered how on earth this could be made into a loop. When it suddenly zoomed out into another emoticon it caught me off guard! The creator has imagined something that is very true for everyone, and something that we all take for granted. I love the uniqueness of it, and the impact makes the viewer remember the main problem we all face, is ourselves. Its very original. Usually when one thinks of over coming themselves, they think of overcoming fears, or emotions, but this gives a very basic and visual aspect to the whole concept which gives it a deeper meaning.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
