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,

hmm

while it was good, it had no story/plot/background (specialy backgound, that would have made it better)

the sound fitted, yet seemed to be fairly abrupt as there were no background sounds to fill the gap...

the animation was good and the design of the characters was pretty good too, admittedly it was a bit too short, eben though 1 month is aa short time, it should hve been enough to squeeze some music in.

overall ill rate this around a 7 as i didnt hate it, but it did starke a chord with me that i didnt agree with.... good effort, i hope you get good marks for it :)

pretty good

your animation skill is good. but not amazed. you could give it cover by applying a good story line. thats one of the tricks animators do when they are not good in something they hide it with something they are good at. you could bring out whats good in you instead of showing your weak points. i couldve give score better if the story line was better and if there were a back music.. ofcourse ive seen in the news that u were in a time limit :).. just think bout what i said earlier and i think ul do great. by the way im not a pro hehehe just a rookie animator.

Too much blur

I think it kinda ruined the animation you used it too much.
Other than that I think it's pretty cool.

Pretty cool

I really liked this for some reason. I thought, before reading your note, That it was a possible reference to the "flying to close to the sun" Icarus. Like we are going to far with technology and it will eventually kill us, or something. You should go with that explanation. lol.
