This is the story of Katan, a little aztec critter who works as a stonemason on huge pyramid projects. He's an eager, talented employee who beleives strongly in what the project stands for, putting in endless overtime to get things done.

When a less committed, self-serving employee hatches a plan to steal the soul jewel of the temple, the mysterious crystal skull, Katan finds himself under blame and attack from the very monument he helped to create.

I started making this toon November 2008 and finally exported it in January 2010.
Various delays, injuries, graduations and jobs made it hard to focus on for a lot of the time- but it is fairly safe to say that it took a year to make... Which also accounts for the style changes and quality progression evident throughout the four mins of play time ;)

Thanks for watching- and thanks again to Newgrounds for letting me upload such large movie files

Here's my view...

Awesome. View on characters:
Blue - Unlucky at first, but resourceful.
Red - Greedy, and probably dead by the time I type this.
Spirit - ... good judgement, spirit!
Animation - Great job! Design, awesome. Story, awesome.
Overall - 15/10

Fantastic

I only got shown your animation today, by an 11 year old boy! Just had a look at your earlier stuff. What a great improvement. Especially with regards to the timing. I'm assuming you studied classical animation in this time? Really professional stuff!

Excellent, but really?

I loved this animation, but South American indigenous societies having wheels? Heresy! The fact they built such massive societies without the wheel is too cool to ignore. :P That said, I do so love this animation and have watched it many times.
