Jinas 1: A New Friend

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Jack, a simple scarecrow, has been protecting the farmlands for as long as he can remember. Spending most of his time sleeping and daydreaming, he is shocked when his crow friend Tony has some big news. There might actually be someone like Jack far away and Tony guarantees it's worth the journey. Accompanied by the old rabbit Roy, the three set off to see if there really is more behind the horizon.

NOTE: the quality button works, but you have to wait till the movie is loaded if you want to toggle it to high quality (press button 2 times). Make sure you have 2GB ram if you watch it at high quality. The quality of the drawings greatly improves though

Some background info:
I know it has been over 2 years since i have submitted anything new. What happened? Well 2 years ago i started this project with great motivation, but somewhere halfway, after 5 months, i completely lost all motivation to draw and animate. This could have been done in 7 months or so but instead i took a 1,5 year break. I really needed it, to get away from it all for a while, to regain inspiration and motivation. I mainly focused on my study and social life and even though i made very little that period, i think i learned alot about art and animation by just watching and reading stuff. I plan to make a few smaller movies before i start working on episode 2 of this thing. This series is meant to have 5 episodes, but i sincerely hope the others won't take me 2 years each also lol. Anyway, Take care

I'm pretty sure I watched the first minute a long time ago, but not on Newgrounds. I won't forget the crow Tony's voice. It's been 13 years since this was posted...

Your scuffed work will live on in our hearts. I hope your life and your work improved.
Take care, AloneInTheDark.

Wow, this was quite epic. It might not amount to that much in the end, but it was still very fun. Even the title "Jinas" is nice. I wish I knew what that meant. The voices were great. Tony is voiced by the guy from the Fernando cartoons.

Well, probably Fernando himself. These are some really odd characters. I like the idea of epic journeys. This one's actually more mundane. Well, none of them are human, but still.

they are gonna regrate taken her with arent they?

glad you back on board. saved you in fave and waited....


In my opinion its quite a nice story, and way better than some toons on TV. CĀ“ant wait for part 2.
