This was my final project for my 2D animation principles class. The theme was cowboys/and or indians. We were each given 1 month to compose an animation. I decided to go in a different approach instead of the traditional cliché's. I can't really tell you how I came up with this concept, it just sort of found it's way into flash. Much like my prior work, it doesn't necessarily make sense or have a definite meaning. I can tell you, the little turquoise lizard's name is Icarus. He can transform into a huge flying machine when threatened. His kind live on earth and are surviving the best they can, for they face extinction.

Special thanks to my 2D animation principles teacher, Wattana Khommarath

I hope you all enjoy, and I greatly appreciate feedback. Always room for improvement!

-Thanks,

whoa

pretty awkward and short, but it was kinda addictive watching it.

Why does it look like you camera'd it wearing headphones?

(title in work)

Well graphically this was quite impressive. You used the blurring feature of Flash quite expertly to give some perspective to the movie. The animations were smooth, and you had good shading in this throughout. I enjoy how you focused a lot on the lizards, which were the innocent bystander in the movie. It was a cool thing to have some focus on. A bit short if you ask me though. This could have definitely used some more storyline to it.

I enjoyed this.

I quite enjoyed this. A fun little short that didn't drag itself out. The animation was great, visuals were wonderful and the sound effects were top notch.

Good job.

Sound was the only thing holding it back

I feel like this could be a 9 or a 10 but I can't not be true to myself.
If you get some better sounds, the sky would be the limit
