Some team, the guy looks at the dismembered arm with the expression of disinterest "oh geez the old guy bought it".  Though he was a tough old man who actually did damage to the robot with his teeth.  Nice animation.

yes, but if you look very very closely you can see that the guy in purple sheds a quick tear for the old man ;)

Haha! That's great! Love the robot Cyclops, he looks like a menacing steampunk foe, and it takes you by surprise when the old man is able to BITE into his metal shell. Very cool use of background to create a dynamic scene, and the levels of 3d and 2d work well together. Awesome animation! :D

:icondavidsadler:
DavidSadler Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Thankyou very much for that! Our crazy story-board artist was the one who came up with the old man being able to bite through the metal...we thought it was pretty hilarious :) certainly a surprise.

thanks, we did take extra effort to blend the two mediums together.
