Nice history!! :D
One of your best works yet.
There are just no words for how touched I am with this animation. Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Why did the blue robot die after so much work and loneliness???
Its just not right.
I just loved it when the robot realizes something new :P
That was really funny. Great animations and you also have a great understanding when it comes to expressing yourself without words. Everything was just great!
A shining example
There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't get a 5/10. Everything about this piece was well thought out and artfully rendered. As soon as the "Amigo" title unfolded on the screen I knew exactly what my vote would be.
The backgrounds were subtle yet interesting, your use of color complimented to mood and situation perfectly, and your character wasn't detailed but was inventive and quirky. I would've loved to seen a little more squash and stretch but I can completely understand your reasoning for not using it. I don't like to compare, but Wall-E had the same philosophy about maintaining a rigid character and environment. I loved your ample use of cushioning, especially when the robot moved it's head around. It helped communicate how frail the robot was, especially in the neck. The story was well paced and your transitions were flawless. I felt no lull in the action and was constantly entertained.
A lot can be taken from this short. Those who take the time to think about it can easily pull some kind of message from it, which I respect a lot. I also applaud you for not using any voice overs, words, or bumps. It really speaks volumes about your skill as an animator.
So thank you sir, for providing this diamond in the rough. For those of you who read this review, I have a request. Learn from this man. Watch this flash a few times and try to glean a few things from it. Because this is everything a flash cartoon should be.
