This was my final project for my 2D animation principles class. The theme was cowboys/and or indians. We were each given 1 month to compose an animation. I decided to go in a different approach instead of the traditional cliché's. I can't really tell you how I came up with this concept, it just sort of found it's way into flash. Much like my prior work, it doesn't necessarily make sense or have a definite meaning. I can tell you, the little turquoise lizard's name is Icarus. He can transform into a huge flying machine when threatened. His kind live on earth and are surviving the best they can, for they face extinction.

Special thanks to my 2D animation principles teacher, Wattana Khommarath

I hope you all enjoy, and I greatly appreciate feedback. Always room for improvement!

Nice Work!

Great job. I loved the Robot animation and the sound effects.

Pretty...er ok

It looked awesome and sorta' funny, but way to short.

Great short

Well, it doesn't really have much of a plot, but I found one. The animation is pretty cool, with what looks like shape manipulation, so for a basic looking technique, you've come up with on every good little piece.

The transforming robot that you brought in to start with just looks mal-adjusted to the surroundings. It was just nicely karmic that he died in a shower of spare parts at the end of the piece.

I love the little Lizard (was that what was being called Icarus?) and the way that it appeared to change into a second robot, before being involved in a high speed RTA, then walking away nonchalantly. Perhaps the combat could have been more intense and given a better view to the movements, similar to those used in the Transformers films. If this is what you do, please remember that you are not Michael Bay, so less explosions = more fun.
