hey guys I just want to show off one of my projects I'm currently working on titled the history of Belgium. It's not completed yet but I'm making it in the most refined and perfect video I can.

That video is great!
I watched it and the effort shown is fantastic.

Good work, I subscribed to your channel.

Also, That “Belgium meets Congo again” video was funny.

Can’t wait to hear you explain Belgiums Colonial history particularly the Congo!
And Katanga!
:D

I liked it.

I was thinking of the graphic language used by Military History Visualized and by the Philosophy videos produced by School of Life. The amount of labor needed must be considerable. In the School of Life videos which I am thinking of animations using collage like images are used. I like them because they are like animated dada collage.

How long did it take you to make the visual side of your video?

Thank you for the nice comments. It'll take a long time before we move to Congo in the timeline, let stand, the Belgian independence. I estimate that if I completed the series I would end up with a 20 minute video. To think of the timeline in the current video ends in 1432.

It takes a long time to draw in Inkscape though. Also not all images are drawn by hand. The first image at the beginning for example was a real photo edited with a special tool. It took me about 15 hours to make this video in 1 week time. In paint drawing would've been easier.

School of life has the most amazing animation there is. I don't think I can compete with such quality

Frankly I didn't think people would actually like the congo video. Haha thanks

I thought that first image was good, as were the rest. If using your "special tool" is quicker than hand drawing images, that would offer an efficient way towards a unified style.

At one point in your video you refer to the H.R.E. meaning the Holy Roman Empire, presumably. Many Warlight players will know what that is, but many young -and not so young- people will not have any notion of what that is.
