The fantastic geological formations that litter the surface of the desert planet Ouroboros are not its only natural wonder. Many diverse life forms dwell amongst the towering hoodoos, sweeping arches, and massive cliffs. Unbeknownst to each individual creature, his or her existence is only a small part of a perpetual and interconnected cycle. Geometric impossibilities and anomalous laws of physics present themselves at the most unexpected moments. Great multitudes wage brutal battles over frivolous differences. Motile beings transform into sessile plants, death gives way to life and the cycle begins again.

Sorry I haven't posted in so long. I started this in February but animated 80% of it over the past month. I hope you enjoy it and thanks for watching!

VillainousTurtleSLC responds:

Thanks. I boosted the volume a bit by normalizing it after you commented. Certainly there is a lot of subtle detail in the sound and it can be best heard by listening on quality headphones.

Loved it

Loved it, I could soo see this as a loop that never ends.

Loved the animation Morphing, and well sound effects were umm... sound effects.. lol yea.. ill choose that one.

VillainousTurtleSLC responds:

It originally was a loop that never ended but I decided that lacked impact and became tiresome. Perhaps I could put that in as an egg or something. Thank you for watching!
