Nikolas Diamant:

Actually had me laughing, good job!


nice concept..lol..


good but over-enginered. think subtle movements.

Sam King:

Found the gun bit scary - well animated tho

Nathan Greensmith:

Great poses, good animation. the stretch of her arm at the end looked a bit much. But still Nicely done.

Ben Halstead:

Great animation! The last shot kind of loses the sense of urgency, though. I get the joke, but she suddenly seems so nonchalant about killing herself when just a moment ago she was afraid for her life

Yinan Hui:

Love your idea, haha! The punchline in the end is pretty good !

Bruno de Coninck:

Interesting concept, but I think it could be just a bit over animated. Except that, it is fairly good!

Grace Hii Hui Hui:

Kyle Novak:

almost too much emotion, and the ending was a little unnecessary.

Nassim Briedj:

hahaha good final


My choice for 1st place so far! Nice fluid animation and a solid idea. Well done! Love the end.

Kyra Toomey:

Love the posing.

Martin Strom:

This should be in the top 10. Great job!

Ramon Arango:

hahaha thats an interesting idea ^^. but if she would give up with a weak husband like that it is a little weird that her expression shows: " aww isn't he cute? I think hes not gonna save me. I might as well kill myself. Oh well"
If it were more like: "Oh no. nonono. Theres no way he will save me! But I'm not gonna give these thugs the satisfaction of killing me"
BOOM I think that would be a muh more believable thoughtprocess. This would also change the way the woman acts over the entire scene of course.
Or show at least a little bit of fear or resignation before she kills herself, instead of this nostalgic good ol times look ^^
