Daily 2nd? Thank you, it;s an honor! :D

And a weekly second? You guys are spoiling me.

--------

Final Round entry for Albino Black Sheep's Tournament of Flash Artists 2012. The final contestants had only about 3 weeks to complete their entries.

Round theme: "Character Origins"
Challenge: Depict an original, not-designed-before protagonist - or antagonist - who is strongly defined by a strength and a weakness (that aren't the same trait/ability
Opponent this Round: Patrick94

This cartoon is what won me the title of "TOFA 2012 Champion."

For this round, I wanted to do a movie without dialogue. The judges were probably expecting another funny cartoon with lots of dialogue, and I feel that I managed to catch them off-guard.

This isn't the same movie that was turned into ABS; I spent one extra day to add some minor improvements to the movie, bringing the total time spent on this movie (including concept, storyboard, animation, picking music) to 18 days. That also makes this movie a Director's Cut, I guess.

There are fewer and fewer animations that can move you in a pleasant way! This was one of them! The animation was good, like the style and pacing. The music was excellently harmonized with the action and the story was nicely portrayed. For the 4:43 (min/sec) it lasts, this was one short that I enjoyed.
Great job good sir! Thank you! Thank you for enriching not only my imagination with your own, but Newgorunds.com as well! Keep up the awesome work!
Cheers!

Very "Steadfast Tin Soldier". Well done, sir. The only thing that felt a little off was - why did the girl wait until after the paper doll had crawled back to tape up her leg. Couldn't she just have done that to begin with?

Thank you! :D

It was actually supposed to be the mother that finds them. If you look at the hallway shadow, it has her hairstyle (the girl has a ponytail).
