Its hard to sleep when your bed is also a komodo dragon.

I totally dig good humor in pixel art. No exeption here!

totally weird

Wow dude, amazing style here. It kind of strikes me as remeniscent of DOTT style animation but much darker and way more atmospheric.  (I like the dragons hat.) Definitely five star material.

Haha, this is fantastic!
I remember how you were just starting to animate, you've made tremendous progress since then. Thumbs up!

No the komodo is perfect as it is. It's almost as if it is hiding under the bed, a boy scared a monster is beneath his bed. The merging is perfect.

i think legs as ...leg would ruin it. thats exactly what you would expect

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/4/2007 02:55
Good idea, but I must say i don't like how komodo was 'merged' with the bed. Maybe it would have been better if it were laying on its back then its legs could be the bedposts etc?
The animation is very good and humorous as always, but the scene itself looks a bit rushed compared to your other work.

It's hypnotic, I stared for a minute just waiting for the next shudder.  Very good job.

Ahh this is excellent! Poor guy is so scared... I suppose he will be extra careful next time when choosing a new bed.

Super nice!!

Nice pixel quality, but the komodo dragon's animation bugs me. It looks like you copied and pasted/moved some pixels above or below. Looks like even it's been automatic animated by a software (of course it's not, but it seems).

The slither, the expression.....just good stuff all around!

KartoonKori (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/1/2007 15:16
Love that little slither he does every so often.Great work!

Lol,  I like this one....

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/1/2007 11:25
That expression on the boy is awesome

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) @ 3/1/2007 09:04
