Jumpy and needed to be finished - would've been awesome complete, though! Nice idea.

richard a.:

looks great!

Ben LaScala:

Love the context but the character is hard to make out, but the animation is well done.

Patrick Verlangieri:

really good work

the drawing is awesome, the character is cool and the movement is good

The only thing is that it feel's blocked, specially in the begining

Paula Decanini:

Feels like it hits on correct beats, especially at "make important decisions". Polish up the expression in the eyes so emotions read more clearly, but good job!

Adam Roades:

Would have loved to see this cleaned up! Nice gestures and timing!

C. J. Cow:

Great!! You should definitely finish this piece. i love it.

E. Ault:

This will look great once finished, smooth out the frozen keys!


The animation is nice, and I like how the person waits for probably who he's listening to finish talking, but the wait is a little long and hard to understand when you watch it for the first time.

David D:

I really like the way you were headed with this. I'd like to see it when it's complete! Nice movement and the ciggy is a nice touch.

Sofia Pagen:

This is absolutely great! I think some polishing or darkening of the lines could have been used to greater show the animation; and while the first 5 or so 6 seconds add greatly to the entry, the time spent on it could've been used to do some of the incomplete frames that went with the audio. I also feel like eyes went a bit too wide and open at "guy" and gave an odd vibe because the enthusiasm in the audio didn't match with the face, so it was a bit too contrasting with the smile the character does at the end. However, I really love the "stair-like" movement the character does at "You should never make important decisions". It served as a way to give emphasis and imply sort of a break between those words. Great stuff!!!

Amartya Mukherji:

loved it.... There are few awesome 2D entries this month, so the competition is tough.
