"You will recieve good news in the mail!"

So mine's about a boy who gets kicked out of the house by his father, and he's not allowed to come back until he gets the mail. So his father abuses him from the porch, throwing stuff at him until he reaches the mailbox. Seeing the mailbox, he opens it up, and mail comes crashing down at his feet.

A chicken and a lizard fall out too. But an envelope hits in him the face. He catches that in his hands. You hear the sound of an ice cream truck and he looks over at it longingly. Ripping open the envelope, its a letter addressed to the owner of the house and it says, "Congratulations, you've won 45 million dollars!" Or some awesome amount.

And the father yells at him from the porch and throws a lawn gnome at him. I'm not sure if the boy gets angry or sad, but he eats the letter, picks up the rest of the mail, and goes back home.

Also, his name is Johann.

I like the concept of the fortune. The only thing that might seem too random is him eating the letter. There should be a reason he eats it. Like maybe he visualizes that it was an ice cream cone as the truck passes and eats in on accident. I dunno. Maybe that's what you were going for.I like your character though. I wanna pinch his cheeks. ^.^

I like it!! I agree the motivations could be a little clearer. Why'd he get kicked out in the first place? That Pixar short "Presto" is sorta similar. The bunny wants the carrot but the magician doesn't give it to him so he seeks revenge. The sketch it awesome!

Well, I was thinking that the father is just mean. Because you see him throwing slippers at him and stuff.

And he points to the mailbox, saying he wants the mail.

I was thinking he'd eat it out of revenge. But it could go any other way.

What if he's eating a sandwich the entire time, and when he sees the sweepstakes letter, he accidentally drips some sauce on there, and then he eats the letter because its so delicious.

Wait, I think he's missing an arm! I know that your last film was about armless people, but maybe that should somehow be included in the story, explained, etc? I do like his colors, dreamy...

I definitely want the one arm to be a non-issue. Unlike the other film, where it played a big part, this one is pretty much just a random thing. It's up to your imagination why he has one arm. Though I will tell you that his father cut it off and made him eat it.
