Happy New Year, everybody! Well, a bit delayed, but close enough.

I thought I'd put some of the stuff I learned last semester to good use and animate a short all frame-by-frame. No tween abuse today, no sir!

It's an animated introduction to the story of Eddie Raser: A boy who's never dreamed before, but is now stuck in one. When people dream, you see, they really go to this place called Nod. It's a world just as real as ours, though most folks are only half-conscious while there.

I'd like to thank my pal Emma ( [link] ) for providing Penny's voice.

dude. finally got to see it. the animation is SICK smooth.
very well done sir.

only gripe i would make (and its just to make one) is work on your effects. glares, slaps, dirt, dust, smoke, etc.

Not sure. This took a lot longer than I thought it would, and I'm not sure I'm gonna have enough free time next semester to do another.

bad assssss dude

you have gotten so much better! The voiceovers and facial expressions are all awesome! The running animation was a little awkward, but not necessarily poorly done.

Anyway, what have you been up to?

DUDE you're on a really good way to become an excellent animator! :0

I really enjoyed watching this. And that you put a certain sense of humor in the story too, made me chuckle in real life. It makes all your works charming. "Hey there! *accident face slap* " :lol:

But the actions scenes are well done too. Especially the car entrance of the big guy. Really nice! :D

At least its only a piece. Having the whole thing lost would damage one's psyche. xP

I finished John's town finally. Now I'm just going to put Xiades in there before I release the next patch.
