Animator: Ricardo

Description: I imagined a blacksmith making/fixing a sword for a young knight, but the sound is too fast, so I wanted more than 2 arms working on it. I really enjoyed working on this animation, I hope you like it :) cheers.

Experience: student, animator wannabe

Time taken: at least 40 hours

If only I had those arms for cooking. Liked your idea, and pretty well animated!


i really like the idea!

Aaron Rivera:

Wow, excellent job animating all 6 of those arms! Great concept that I can tell you had a lot of fun with. Some of the animation on the kid is stiff, and the shapes of the body could be stronger, especially the sleeves on the kid, but otherwise this is a charming, fun, and well made peice. Good job!

funny :D

Benjamin Berg:

The idea is original, I'll give you that. I would add in some small movement where the characters freeze. Besides that, good job!
