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

Absolutely Brilliant!

It is ver rare that we see an animation of this quality. Everything is smooth, crisp, and consistent. I can basically guarantee that this will be on the front page and in the top fifty. Excellent work my friend. I hope you continue this story!

Awesome

Just simply awesome, was detailed had cool effects, good background music, etc. Also high resolution. My only problem is that the framerate didn't seem all that high. Could have used maybe 1/4th or so more frames. Also some sound effects might have been cool, although I really don't know whether that would have actually improved it. Probably one of the greatest flashes on newgrounds.

Katan

I think it is fair to give a star rating in the top eight

Sufficiently detailed drawings
added with a very good illustration of music ...

only
why choose the Aztecs as the basis for the story ...

why not something that is not there ...
something new that we need more ...

But I gave you 10 stars
