This film was started in March 2010, I worked on it for months, drawing each frame by hand with a non-photo blue pencil and an ink pen. I used Illustrator to vector the frames and then compiled them into Flash CS5, where I colored and shaded them. I have now come to my senior project during my last two quarters in college and can no longer give enough attention to this project. I am currently working on an animated teaser for my graphic novel series VERDACOMB, which is linked to the TOFU project in many deeper ways.

The music was produced by none other than Mr. Murph of Atlanta, GA. Thank you very much sir for letting me use your track.

I hope you all enjoy the short for what it is. My time and energy. Thank you.

Thanks TOM for the front page, I appreciate it.



I've been hanging out to see this, and as usual you didn't disappoint!
I particularly loved the shot of her turning around on the machine and firing the raygun, it was gold! GOLD I TELL YOU!! 8D

Thanks man, i appreciate the enthusiasm hah

Great work

Very detailed and a cool soundtrack. Not too sure what happened story wise. Plus your animation and frame rate need a bit of work.

Overall though very enjoyable.

I liked it!

Very nice, I adore the style and mood setting you have going on here.

The fact that you did it frame by frame is astounding to me, and it shows great commitment and process to your work.

I don't really have anything to complain about, the art direction really fits my taste, the music is surprising yet perfect. And the effort you must've put in is astonishing.

The attention to detail ran through my mind as well, it's quite brilliant.

It'd be great if you were to upload other parts of it, because I'm really interested in the plot and whole background behind it now.

5/5, very enjoyable.

One question: How many frames did it all add up to?

There are more TOFU cartoons in my gallery, under 2009 uploads. The cartoon itself does have some pans and tweens so the amount of frames would be inaccurate, yet the stack of paper in my closet is about half a foot tall so.. that many hahah


a feast to the sight!!! Dude, that was some serious-accurate frame-by-frame work !!! I loved it!!

DAMN! Almost got a new action flash here.

I'm deeply saddened that you won't be finishing this, because my eyes were pretty glued to the screen. It was very animated and had interesting execution. The shading and the line art were a little shaky and inconsistent at times, but the timing made up for it, good music as well. Eh, school comes first though I guess. (stink eye)
