After a lifetime of being trapped in different bowls, a goldfish finally finds freedom.
Or: 'Life is pointless, then you die from a stray baseball'.
Made in 2 days for the Sarcastic Animation Jam, with the prompts 'fishbowl' and 'broken window'. I thought up the idea on midday Saturday, animated until about 11pm, then got up the next day and blazed through until I was finished. If I had a little more time I'd work on some more cleanups, lighting effects, and bubble particles, but I'm pretty happy with what I ended up with considering the time constraints.
At least now I have practice speed sketching bowls of different shapes. I've never drawn so many fish bowls in my life. Well, except that one time.
EDIT: Woo, Daily 1st Feature! Thank you benevolent Newgrounds overlords!
EDIT2: Weekly 3rd Place! :D
EDIT3: Won the audience choice award and 1st place for the judges award in the Sarcastic Animation Jam. Needless to say, I'm stoked. Well done to everyone who entered the jam--all of your epic speed animating skills did not go unnoticed.
