Not really that satisfied with it. Was still struggling with drawing techniques and storytelling when i made it. It became an important piece for the rest of my work though



Rated 5 / 5 stars

wow front page stuff

your art is so amazing...i'm impressed at how you were able to really capture the mood of the robot and it's surroundings without actually having him talk, so props to you. i really liked how the robot walks and stuff, more realistic than having him walk like a normal person. the script and story were great too, def a 5 and 10's across

Pretty freaking awesome

That was a cool movie, nice job! Awesome quality, only flaw I saw, or better yet heard was the robot's movement noise, it was sorta annoying, but nothing too bad though. Good work.

Short but Sweet

I would like to say, that the ending turned out well. I am surprised you finished so fast.

The uniqueness and beauty of your intro is awesome.

Your drawings are very unique and although somtimes unrealistic... there is a quality about them that captures the eye.

The audio was good and I commend AlantheBox... nice job.

Like you expressed to me, you expressed in this move: that humanity is weak and meaningless, but how, at the same time, we are all very unique and beautiful. This situation certainly went beyond the control of the charcters. It turned out perfectly and really expressed what you had described before.

The story was executed well, but somehow seemed to not be fully articulated. It was very short and left alot of emotions out. Yes, he was rejected. Yes, he was jelous, was not excepted and the ending did show that robot, or not, not everyone can be who they truly are. Not just a robot can be hurt the way your character was. Anyone can. That is why life is so weak, so helpless, so painful.

However, maybe its just me, but i feel something was missing. Then again, with you, maybe you meant for me to feel that way. lol. Maybe thats the emptyness of life, i am probably looking too far into this.
However, either way, it was amazing. Not because of your good animation, not becuase of the motive or moral, but because of how you took something so simple that everyone in this world has experienced at least once and expressed it in such an emotional, penetrating and unique way.

This is another reason why your one of my favs.

It was not perfect, as much as i wanted it to be, but it was still amazing. You have impressed me. I love you, man (not literally, but you know). Good Work.

I would just like to say that, as much as the ending was obvious, there could have been more of a finish and more of an outcome. It still feels incomplete.

I guess there is a little Robot inside all of us.

Thanks alot for the awesome review Myst. I really like how u are not afraid to tell what u think and feel. Its very informative and rewarding for me as the author.
I know it is not perfect. I could have improven on the visual aspect and the length of the flash if i had more time. But the main goal for me was to basically get the message across and reading from your review, i think i succeeded in that.
Oh and i simply love the conclussion 'there is a little robot inside all of us'. Take care Myst, im honoured to have u as a fan
