In the middle of the desert, there is no water for miles in all directions, except for a fortress oasis named Green Acres. The owner of this gated plot of land will stop at nothing to protect his water supply, and he has an arsenal of weapons to do it. It's going to take one very lucky tortoise to slip past his defenses.

Very Quality 3 Dimensional Animation Mr Turnip.
But personally would love to see some more of your 2D animations, I really like them alot!!
Glad to see you still producing great work.

Thanks man! I'd love to do another 2D animation, but I'm a rather slow 2D animator. Maybe someday.

A very well made animation indeed. The 3D animation was top notch and fluid and didn't feel clunky at all, as well as the sounds feeling very real and mixing in with the animation itself. You did a very good job on this and should feel proud of it. I enjoyed it very much and found the concept pretty interesting. Overall a very well made animation with no flaws in it; except I can say for a fact that when the owner shot the bug, I don't think there would have been any remains of it for him to throw away, but its not a big thing so good job.
