For the Summer Animation Jam: Round 3. This was a real challenge. Not only was it difficult to create a story based entirely around a set of sound effects, but this is my first time creating a full animation in ToonBoom. Learning how to use a new program in such a small amount of time was intense, but I've learned so much from this experience.
I really tried to prioritize what was most important, especially since I have a tendency to get carried away. I tried to keep things pretty simple and not go too crazy while still making a story that is (hopefully) entertaining. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm proud of what I accomplished with this animation.
Thanks for watching!

Great stuff, especially for someone who just started using ToonBoom...
Kinda jealous >_>
I use Flash tho >_>



I really liked how fluid the animation was and that little character was just adorable!
Really nice work wiith this one!
I especially like the part where the little guy splatted on the eye on the robot.
Priceless.

Why is that most of the character's actions are silent? Example- Character drops a can on the ground- nothing.
Nonetheless, the animation is not bad.


PennilessRagamuffin responds:

This animation was created for the Newgrounds Sound Jam, in which animators were challenged to create an animated short using at least 20 of 30 provided sound effects. Additional sound effects were prohibited, making it a tricky prompt, for sure.
TL;DR I didn't want to be disqualified D:


Wow, great job! The art and animation is good and the sound effects are implemented perfectly! None of them seemed out of place, if I didn't already know, I'd have never guessed the animation was customized around the sounds, and not the other way.
I like the story, that poor tektiti x3 The situation feels intense without going way over the top, which I appreciate.



The wiggle in the leg at the end sums up the level of detail you put into your creation - great job!
