The Ballad Of A Turret

Made this in 3 days. I hope everyone enjoys! Also, there's an easter egg.

EDIT: And once again, I reach 10th place XD THanks to everyone, and I understand it's not my best animation. I'll put more effort into the next 2 cartoons.

The over all has one or two flaws, but it could be improved easily. I like the general concept, but the animation is choppy, and the flashbacks could have been better, but I can see the artist doing something really great with this start.

You know what?

10. Yeah, the animation could use improvement, and the humor MAY have been improved if you used the actual audio from the g ame (even though I see why doing that voice would make it funny)

But I can see a great effort here.


The movements are a bit choppy, you could of animated some of the flashbacks, and the whole sequence is a bit too long.
But it's a great concept. I hardly know anything about Portal, but i still laughed. The camera shots and art is also pretty good.
I'm not a great animator myself, but if the animating was a bit better here I would of given this a eight or nine.

Trying to be generous...

Should definitely put more time in. Its so much more entertaining when you produce something with the extra man hours in it. Like others say also, there is quite a few "Portal" parodies out there and in order to really make one stick, its has to stick in the mind.

Great Idea

Loved the music and story behind it, but the animation lacks...a lot. Put this to better animation and you might have a winner.
