So today's hour-long animation challenge was "Knife". My mind took a second, but I recalled the catchphrase "You call that a knife?" from the Crocodile Dundee movie. Comparing a normal knife to a larger Australian knife. Having to one-up the concept, I decided to include other fictional characters with ever-increasing sword sizes. Figured it'd be something I could have fun with, but I misremembered sword sizes of various characters. Cloud Strife had to come second, but his 6 - 8 foot long sword dwarfs most other 'big swords' from popular media I could think to include. Originally was going to include a Gundam with a sword, but theirs are energy and I've only seen clips of Gundam Wing anyway, so that wouldn't make sense. Thankfully Voltron has a normal enough looking sword, so he made the joke work. Also I could get away with just drawing the feet to make it still recognizable. I suck at drawing mech suits.
Oh, and the time? 5 HOURS. UGH. I need to simplify these ideas, damnit!
