NAME: Rhett Wilder
BIRTHDAY: September 5th, 1926 (age 42, Virgo)
OCCUPATION: Ex-Automotive Engineer
HOMETOWN: Bee Cave, Texas

A prequel to Revengineering, which can be seen here: /portal/view/588472

Hired for an Engineer position for Builder's League United, Rhett Wilder believes he is simply designing weapons, until he finds out the hard way that he's been involved in a vicious bait-and-switch that involves him building machines simply to survive.

Of course, one could always go a little mad from such high stakes.

This animation was an extremely quick animation, took only a little longer than Herondance to complete, I'd reckon a good 20-25 hours. Dunno, something about this one just flowed right off my fingers. I decided to make a prequel simply because Revengineering is kind of the odd one out of the bunch, considering that it's more of a conclusion to his career with BLU as opposed to him joining it, like the other two. It's also because Engineer is a totally underrated character.

Song is Ragtime Cat by Parov Stelar. Please be awesome and purchase his music, it's truly incredible.

Now this is WAAAAY better than the first one, not as short as the last 2 and not as long as the first ones. heh, i think this music was the best.
and this one had the best sentry artwork comparing with the others(also i noticed something, every flash you made that envolved TF2 had a sentry gun, just saying)
i think this was the best flash you made so far, it deserves more than 3.49.

oh well. keep up the good work!

Thanks a lot! I've been taking the crits people are giving and experimenting with new techniques.

You're right, and I've had every single class in them as well... except for Pyro. Poor pyro.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing, much better than the first one (Revengineering). I felt that one (Still talking about Revengineering) was unnecessarily long and drawn out, Therefore it lost its flair, but this one was just the right length and was thoughly enjoyable.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

That's one of my references, yup.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

i was specting that the demo cut his hand with a sword
but, as usually, a good animation with good music
but needs more hats, and at least a taunt kill
keep the good work


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great as always.
