Jed B.:

You really nailed the character.

Isaac Bautista:

With such long tails it would be best if you made them a little more expressive. The blue one just keeps moving it around in the same rhythm, instead you could animate it in a way that expresses more his feelings.

William Barry Eggington:

Weird lighting. I'd almost rather see the GL version if you can't get the lighting right. Not half bad though.

Carolyn Mennecke:

The movement in the background at the end distracts from the character

Jo Anne Tan:

Is the squirrel wagging its tail, or is the tail being blown by strong wind? It seems unnatural and very un-squirrel-like. Also the second shot reveals the "problem" of the story, but the huge apple in the forefront and the old squirrel take up so much screenspace that I don't know what to focus on.
