---EDIT--- Front Page?! Thank You Tom!!!

ps. I apologize for the large file size. The animation was made in After Effects so I had to compress it as much as I could without destroying the quality. The original size is 378MB lol.

This was an animation I made for my Studio Project class in my first year. We were challenged to make something related to our field and I choose to make a cartoon. It was a great learning experience with familiarizing myself with After Effects and importing elements from other programs. I really wanted to expand on the animation but I ran out of time. So here is what I came up with for 2011 Robot Day. Enjoy!

Purpose/Story: 7/10 (very relevant)
Music/Sound: 8/10 (relevant)
Animation/Style: 8/10 (relevant)
Length: 10/10 (not so relevant)
FunFactor: 8/10 (very relevant)

Three different scenes: Dog, bombardment and pink robot.
And they don't make any reference to one another, I mean, why drop bombs? What's up with the dog in the beginning?
Too many questions, no answer...
And the robot friggin dies at the end, without accomplishing anything.
Well, he tried, though.

@Mitch, EpicNorriS, and Talemir

Mitch and EpicNorriS both seem to mis-comprehend the meaning of Talemir's review, and I frankly agree with him. This is a mediocre animation with a good idea. The execution is what could be better. Small things like when the blue robot is walking, and his feet kind of slide back instead of holding where they are like something real would, is important. Plus, there is too much using of the same model, and the entire animation seems 2-Dimentional. Like when the robot uses his rocket-feet, his left foot is DIRECTLY in front of his right foot, and it's just too 2-D. If Plus the FPS is bad, so you didn't really work that out.

Plus, you should never talk down to or demean your viewers, thats how you lose them.

I'm trying to grow out of childish responses from my teen years. I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion and I think all animations will have their fair share of spam or abusive reviews. I choose to ignore hatemail and try to focus on the ones that are constructive and concise. When I see a reviewer trying to make a just point while undermining my work and Newgrounds it is a bit frustrating. I know he was trying to make a couple key points of things I could have worked on but he strayed too far away from them for the review to be received as constructive. I addressed the comments I had a problem with and responded to them. If his true intent was suggestions for improvement then I would have never responded the way I did. I value my viewers and am thankful for anyone who has taken the time to view my work. Thank you for watching and I appreciate your input!

kind of a sad story


Rated 4 / 5 stars


It's just that you don't understand the true meaning of this flash. And the title isn't given just like that as well. Just try to think a bit more.
