Shopping Season by Mad-But-Happy Shopping Season by Mad-But-Happy
[link] Incase the download button dosen't work ;)

I’m free, I’m free! It took a long time, but it’s finally done! This animation was the bane of my existence for 2 school semesters, but I’m very glad I went all the way with it. This project was massive, as I’m sure you can tell... Although I personally see many mistakes, I also see many aspects of my animation that have greatly improved. I learned a lot from this, and I am in college, so… mission accomplished! I submitted it to the student animation/film festival, so hopefully they’ll put it in! I’m graduating, so I would like to see ONE of my animations in the show before I go up to Canada. But I ramble.

Thank you to everyone who has supported along the way! I hope you enjoy the final version!

And now if you'll excuse me, it's 4am. *passes out* :XD:

You had a lot of good things going on there. If I could just make a few suggestions though. I think it could use a little more settle at the end of the actions. Things had the tendency to just stop and you could tell they were holds. It was almost as if I had hit the pause button at times. A little more secondary action (and follow-through) with things like the ears, clothing, etc, would be great to see as well, it will help sell the actions even more and looks a lot more believable like how things really do move. Everything else though was pretty good from what I can gather. You're really close!

There was an ultra-cute necklace that was all dainty with a crystal rose and everything and i saw it, another girl saw it. then we both walked to it, keeping eye contact, then we fast walked, then we jogged and all but ran and my stubby legs were my downfall.

D8 DUDE! This must have taken FOREVER! D8 But all that hard work must have paid off because this is simply mind blowing! Not to mention an absolute joy to watch. :)

I don't know much about animation, but seeing stuff like this always makes me wasn't to try something of my own, even if I know I'll fail.

And the only way you get better at animation is if you do it. Everyone's art will suck 90% of the time, it's the other 10% you have to watch for. ;) lol

This is amazingly well done and I highly respect you for being able to pull off something so complex so well. The smoothness of this felt very strong as well as how dynamic you made your characters. From the expressions to poses, this felt extremely strong and kept me compelled to keep watching. Your audio choices, felt very suiting for this and helped to set the mood correctly.

My only main suggestion is that it felt like there were a few too many pauses or that they could have been shorter between sequences. Then again, I know how difficult it can be to time these things to let the planned animation properly sync with timing.

Great job again! I can't wait to see what else you are capable of doing! It's rare for me to see many traditional animations on this website that are this well done.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it <3 Thank you for the crit, as well ;) That timing is a pain indeed :XD: I will be posting my new animations here in the future, so stop back. :D

And yeah, I don't see much traditional on this site... It makes me sad :(
