Edit: Wow, thanks for the front page everyone :)

The first of a 10 part series set to the music of RushJet1's E.P "Out There" which when completed will hopefully be a complete short film. Made entirely without the pixel tool, this is my first ever attempt at pixel animation. I never realised just how much of a time consuming process pixel animation was until i undertook this project. Tells the tale of Astro, a young squid summoned to war after a fellow squids ship crashes into a city, id leave a real commentary but id like the film to tell the story itself. More to come.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Love it

Just one question to the author,

This made me feel like I was playing old skool Mega Man, any connection to that and this creation?

I felt like it was original music, but so similar.

Either way wonderful job mate!

Awesome use of the pixel tool, animation FPS was pretty high from what I could tell, which made it look even cooler. Nice work all around!

Smooth animation with the pixel tool is something anyone can admire, srsly.
