Great staging, poses.......keep it up..

Danny Rings:

well drawn but its so very stiff

ben malberg:

The drawings are nice. I like your style. I would focus on the timing/spacing and arcs of the movement. (for example f98-f140) It's a bit choppy. I like the globe spin, and your creative idea at the end. Respectable effort.

Dylan MacBurnie:

I'd love to see more in-betweens, because this looks like it could be really great. I'm sure it was a simple lack of time though, 2D animation is tough.

Jess Giaquinto:

Good story, nice animation. The mass of the character should be more consistent from frame to frame. His head increased and decreased in size several times before he changed position in relation to the camera.

David Krein:

Best 2D one I've seen in 100+ vids so far, so nicely done, and the most polished I've seen. Some odd head pops here and there, but the scene was used very effectively.

Joyce Makker:

Really cool style, really love it. Too bad you're not maintaining the volume of the head throughout the animation, it was bothering me while I was watching it, it distracted my attention.

Sandra Tapia:

Very nice lip sync. I love the style.

Tobias Fuhr:

i really like it. GREAT

roy cobn:
