Hey newgrounds! My last submission to this site was in 2008. I have taken my old animations down since, because... well... they were pretty bad. I decided to hone my skills and practice for the next 4 years. I really did not work on any animated projects aside from tests. A few months back I decided it was time to start working on a project I've been wanting to make for years. The prospects of the project were daunting and I needed to make sure it was possible to achieve. This short action sequence was made as a technical test. I'm happy to bring you the product of that test. I know there are a lot of teasers, promos, and whatnot for hopeful series, but I hope this one is different from most. I know it may not make much sense, but there is a plot behind all of this and the pilot is being made right now!
For anybody wondering, this was made using only Flash, After Effects, and Photoshop.

Enough from me, check it out and tell me what you think.

i usually never login or write revieuws.
but this style was amazing.
loved the one eyed bott.

only one downside.
however i really do want to see more of this.
i do not feel really teased..
i had no idea why the bot was crashing and what kind of world he is in.

you pretty much have no idea of anything.
and to realy TEASE.. you should give a little hint.... at least how he got the damage to his spacecraft
or a real small hint why the police bots inmediatly start to fire on him....

just tease me a bit more :D

not bad.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I absolutely loved how the mixed CGI and animation managed to complement one another due to the excelent camera work and the style of animation. The droid is absolutly adorable with the half-shuttered single optic. Maybe it is because I am such a Shockwave fan, haha, but then it would have to be an Autobot Shockwave. I can't wait for the pilot!

That... is some slick style. The combination of CGI and hand-drawn visuals was unusual and could have easily been a flop, but I LOVED it, and that's certaily due at least in part to how well you handled the animation and camerawork. Very impressive; looking forward to more.

That's quite a compliment. Everything fitting together was a concern and one of the bigger challenges of this project. Nice to see that it seemed to work. Thanks!

Between the drawn animations of the robot and the visual effects of explosions... amazing! I want to see more! :)
