whoa, front paged! HI NEWGROUNDS! :D



well, here's the culmination of about 10 days of on and off animating. It's my entry for NATA's novice round, which theme is "The Elephant in the Room."

You might be a bit confused as to how I arrived at this take on the theme. Well, early on I realized that a lot of the contestants were going to go literal routes, and a lot of the contestants were going to go figurative routes. I kind of decided to take things a bit of a different route, to back things up, simplify the phrase a bit more:

"Big thing in a small place."

Bugs are small, very much so, but some are much bigger than others. So I took a bug that represents the epitome of small, the ant, and pitted against one of the biggest I could think of, conveniently named the elephant beetle.

Anyway, hope you guy's enjoy it. Don't forget to check out that KickStarter page at the end (it's gonna be an awesome series if they come up with the funding!).


I enjoyed this. Good job :D

Once again, awesome animation that is thwarted by horrible (I mean, ungodly) voice volume levels. They are sporadic and have no fluid consistency.

While editing you really have to put an effort into fixing them. That is the only thing that cost you .5 of a star- otherwise this is sheer win.

Yeah, I've gotten a few reviews about that. I'll make sure to focus on it. Thanks for your contribution!

Nice :3 I like animations like this, simple, funny, not THAT much swearing, just cute, funny, down right originality! *faves*

JerrodStorm responds:

Thanks! I avoid curse words, but I'm not opposed to using replacements occassionally.

The mantis is all: 0_0

I laughed so hard, my brain exploded! XD
