the robot that thought it was human
-- first in a series of shorts about a robot that believes it is human, which leads to all sorts of mishaps. i intended it to be humurous and tragic at the same time.
-- episode one sees our troubled machine lost in a desert. can he find water? what will happen if he doesn't? what will happen if he does?

-- yay, daily 2nd place. it was worth the hard work. thanks for the support [and the suggestions]. there will definately be more..



Very artistic.... I just love this. the style the graphics.. everything about is just great.. I cant for more from you man.. keep on making this kind of cartoons I love them..

I will hopfully see some more of your stuff..

Just great. I'm looking forward to more

I've added you as one of my favorites.
Your drawing is great,(I like the way it looks he's holding two telephones in his hands) your animation is great.
The over all idea of the robot that thinks it is human is beautifull.

One thing, try to avoid cliche jokes and violence.

I think the ending would have been better if you had left the ending a bit more understated.
He pores the water on his head and fizzles and falls end. The "bang" end up being noise. There is TONS of noise on NG.


One word, fan-fucking-tastic.

top notch animation

I liked your style, with all the lines flung about the background to suggest shading.

The animation on the robot was pretty damn good and the camera angles were well chosen.

The only real problem was with the joke itself. The joke was pretty obvious and I was quite disappointed that you didn't surprise me at all with anything.

Next time, if you try and think of something a little more obscure, it'd result in a much better movie.

Jokes generally aren't funny when you see them coming.

Still, as I said, the production values were really high so I have high hopes for future episodes. :)

thanks for the review -- there's nothing more useful than constructive criticism.

i did try to get a good balance between the viewer anticipating the joke and there being a little suprise, which i now admit is hard to do.

i'll bear this in mind next time..

it was ok

it was ok, it needs work but well done anyway
