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,
Stibby (Cody Brown)

My favorite word...

You know... at first I didn't get where the icarus came in... Mostly because Icarus is my favorite word... Then I read the little Side note... anyway nice animation... and now the Icarus is my favorite animal...

I'm impressed

I wasn't expecting much, but this was really good. The animation was fluid, the sound effects were neat, different, and spot on, and it was a refreshing new concept. It sorta reminds me of those Pixar shorts, and I hope you do more in this style. I think you've got quite a talent.
