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

Took my breath away

I loved this. Everything about it. It just had a really nice flow to it, and was easy on my eyes, unlike most flash movies I watch. The story was also very creative. The critter were so adorable too. I hope that one day you continue this story. For now, I have something else to watch over and over. :)

Very well done

That was definitely more than I expected. The animations were very smooth and the and it was active enough that it didnt lose my interest. You can definitely tell the effort you put into this flash and it was well worth it. Great job and keep up the great work.

Overall Great

Good animation style, artwork was great, though I did catch one scene that wasnt quite up to snuff, and no audio to comment on except for the mood setting tribal music in the background.

Amazing.

That was epic. It had action, cute characters and GREAT animation! The shading was just perfect. The story was well written and didn't lose me for a second. The only flaw was that the cut-off ear switched sides a bit but that's hard to keep track of, or even to notice so that's nothing to me. I am a big fan of your work and I recognized your style immediately (particularly from Ekkosangen, as I love that Flash). It took over a year, eh? I believe it. Great job and I hope to see even more work from you in the future(squirrel, lol). 10/10 5/5

I hear about the ear a lot, so I'm aware of that =)

My beta viewers missed it, as did I before I first posted the video around.

It occured because I mirrored a couple scenes to ensure the transitions weren't too abrupt.
I decided not to fix it though before posting here. There's something interesting about mistakes... I dunno... more homemade garage-build feel this way...
