'Automaton Quest'



Four prototype automatons were chosen for the unusual mission of retrieving an elusive floppy disk, one which contains the last recipe for lasagna in the galaxy.

Ran out of time before being able to make an animated short; but a little 'jammed' poster-esque gif will have to do :D

wow nice

So this was really a good piece, I love the "ROBOT-DAY-THEME" as for improvment maybe you could ad even more animation into this, So this was a nice submission into the portal, You know, I think this is a nice and creative piece, I like the simplicity in this aswell as the detail that you presented, The design itself is intriguing and brings a style of its very own, and even seducing in its own unique way. I think this is creative for blending the styles of art and design, there is a lot here This really captures the aspect of this piece It is very subtle but apparent at the idea and concept of this entry, A very acurate idea and design.

Heeey you can always count on Butzbo to deliver these trippy loops! :D Smooth but full of life, and atmospheric too with that dimlit green... some things (like the red cog, and the dogs tail) seem to jump a bit between the loop, not to mention how the ground hacks a bit, though unless you really start thinking about those things they're not so noticable! Wonder if you'll be making something for this year too? That one day's closing in. :) Good stuff.


This animation is really cute. Reminds me of working with flash 8. Only reason I didn't rate higher, the Robot Day logo isn't animated very smoothly. Granted, I know, fizzling electricity and sparks are hard to animate and have look pretty.

Butzbo responds:

Thanks ADR!, I agree, with some more perspective on the world of 2d animated effects, there can be so much more going on on an effect like that one. Also, now that you mention it, even if I use a newer version, I still think Flash 8 included most of what I use anyway!

The colors and the shapes are very cool.
