A short animation about.... well not even I know what it's about. It's intended to be cute and sweet with a little twist of that special something else.
Special thanks to Marcorocco for the inspiration for the character and adorable voice as well as Stephen Charlton for helping with some of the coding.
Comments and criticisms are most welcome. Enjoy!

Just to clear some things up:
Yes, it is a short animation but so what?
Yes, it is meant to be lighthearted (and "pointless")
Yes, it is supposed to be funny and cute

No, Marco does not have down syndrome
No, it doesn't have a plot but why should it?
No, Marco is not retarded.

Why does it have to make sense? Can't it just be open to interpretation or the viewers' perception? Take it for what it is, a short and simple animated short.

Thanks for all comments and criticism, all feedback has been noted for future submissions. Animations need not only an artist, but an audience as well. So I thank you all for watching!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

very nice short

interesting dialougue. Nice echo effect, it really set the tone for the "voice over guy." the only thing that really bugged me was that the pencil dissapears into marcos hand when he's done drawing.
But very funny, and it doesn't overstay its welcome.
good job.

Great job.

I think you have a great deal of potential there. You can draw and animate at a high level. The voice and sound quality is great as well.

But the point of the flash and what you use all these skills for is most certainly false. Perhaps if you don't feel it, you could make a co-flash with one of the more famous artists. Have a try with Tomamoto(I think he's in every friggin flash!) or if you want to do something crazy or humourous, I'd try my luck with Egoraptor =) or TheSwain.
Possibilities are endless. You just picked the wrong way and are kind of lost.
