Finally completed this animation. Wow I can't believe this 1 min and 44 sec animation took so long to make. I literally did all animation, sound design, and music. This is a huge change from my previous work. Thank you for watching this animation everyone and hope you'll like it.
All animation and music is done by me (KhanhCPham).
This was done for my 2D Animation class midterm last year. This was strictly speaking an After Effects assignment, and though most of it is just individual frames imported from PhotoShop, I did need a lot of After Effects skills to sew it together.
Frames were "hand drawn" in Photoshop CS5.5 using a Wacom Intuos3 tablet and brought into After Effects CS5.5, except for the carnosaur which was a puppet with pieces drawn in Photoshop and rigged in After Effects. Sounds are from freesound.org.
The original storyboards started at primordial soup and ended at a pair of cockatiels, but after I realized this was a MIDTERM project and not a TERM project I had to cut out acts 1 and 3. O.o Animation takes... a while....
I didn't really do much paleontology research for this but I used to be into dinosaurs like ten years ago and this is based on what I remember.
There are mistakes all over the place and I didn't have time to properly synch the sound or add touches like eye blinks during the walk cycles, but I do like the way it looks overall. I also would've liked the running up the tree bit to be a new cycle, but there wasn't time to do it.
I was so glad when this was done! And there are bits of it I really, really like, like the running dino animation (after our hero gets startled by the carnosaur).
EDIT: Holy cow a DD?! Wow, thank you so much ^kingmancheng! I'm delighted by everyone's enjoyment of this little short. :3
Well, here is the animation I was telling everyone about. It's surreal like my other animations, I chose to do no storyboards and at least pretend these characters have nothing to do with the original characters I made. here are the two songs you can listen to: Deatham: [link] Oiana: [link]
you thought it was the bad ending...but it was only the beginning.
yes, i actually made a kenji "instafeels", although in this case it is a mock trailer for a fictional sequel to KS, with Kenji as the culprit! after animating this i threw it into aftereffects to do some cool effects on it. i hope you like it!
to view it in better quality & higher definition up to 1080p, check it out on youtube, and look out for animated gifs from this animation at my tumblr within the next week!

Well guys, I did it! I got this out before I had to leave on Sunday! I told you I would! I am proud of me!
All gloating aside though, I must say that I can relate to how Fluttershy feels in this video... Because this is the last animation I will be able to post for a while... For those of you who don't know, I am in the US Navy, and every year, I go on some kind of deployment. This year, I will get to visit Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia, The Philippines, and a few others I can't remember the name of. While I am excited as always, I will also really miss you guys... You Bronies are some of the nicest people I have ever met!! you are kind, excepting, loving, and forgiving in a world full of bitter, hateful, and sad people... If I could ask one thing of you while I'm gone, it would be this: PLEASE DON'T FIZZLE OUT!!! Seriously, I need you guys... The World needs you!!
