After a month of hard work, and a month and a half of procrastination, it's finally here!

I tried to do more frame by frame with this one, and planned it a lot more than previous ones, I believe it's my best work, and I'm really proud of it.

It's the longest animation I did, with a little more than six minutes of length!

Also, thanks to everyone who auditioned, animators like me would be nowhere without talented voice actors and supporters!

Shock-Dingo did a great job, you should favorite him. NOW!

I don't know what else I can say, if you have any criticism and questions, you can leave a review or PM me, I'll reply.

Thanks everyone! :)



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I liked the characters, and I felt that the story was well developed, along with the storyboard, camera views, etc. Voice acting was great. My only suggestion is to work on animating the characters consistently well; many scenes were great, but there were a few that didn't have enough facial expression to go with the emotions of the characters, or sufficient body language. Additionally, avoid simply rotating characters without changing their arm and leg position.
Other things to work on: Rex's eyes stayed vertically still, when his upper face was clearly moving, in certain scenes when he talked.
I also felt that some of the backgrounds could have been more detailed, or for the ones that looked fine in detail, seemed a bit sloppily drawn.
Anyways, it was overall a good movie, and I really like the style/appearance of the characters- it has a nice comical feel.

Characters were well developed. Rex even sounded that fat guy from two stupid dogs. Even if the animation wasn't top notch, voice acting was very good and it was very entertaining. Thanks for putting in the effort!

Dinosaurs are one of those magical ingredients that can make anything awesome :D

The art style was very nice to look at and the voice work was excellent.

There was a couple of tweaks to some bits that could have added more to the animation (Maybe adding flames to the dinosaurs where they were in contact with the lava and making the cape more swooshy)

But It'd be a bit rubbish of me to be nit picky because at the end of the day I was entertained for 6 minutes,

(I liked the "BC" gag at the end)

Awesome job dude, I look forward to seeing your next animation.

Absolutely adorable animation here. I liked the liberties you took with the dinosaurs, like adding plates to Rex's back. I always loved the way plates looked on different dinosaurs, I would often add them to dinosaurs I knew didn't have them.
The ending just seemed a little too violent compared to the rest of the animation, I'm sure that was probably the joke, but the Terminator 2 style ending just seemed a little heavy in comparison to the rest of the humor.
Also, was Paul supposed to be a Plateosaurus or some other kind of prosauropod, or was he just some fanciful creation? Either way, he was way too cute.

Steinberg responds:

Hahah, for me, cartoon tyrannosaurus NEEDS plates, that's how I draw them since I was a kid, not sure why, I guess that's just a generic drawing habit.
Funny thing is that I kept forgetting to draw them when I started a new scene.
I felt a little weird about adding human like eyebrows on Rex, but I'm not very good with facial expression so they helped a little.
Paul is just my creation, I don't really know what he is, probably a mix of all the generic dinosaur drawings I saw through my life. He can't be a Plateosaurus though, because then he would be too big to climb over Rex's head.
About the ending, well, I tend not to do swearing and do a clean humor over all, but then I always end up making things violent, bad habit I guess. The animation also built up a lot over my original idea, I guess I lost control, haha.
Well, thanks for reviewing and liking!
