Should be a comic and not an animation

The Good: I love your style of art, it's very detailed with the lighting and facial expressions and you take yourself very seriously when you do draw. The story is entertaining and you make sure to keep the speech bubbles up for a little bit because of slow readers like myself.

The Bad: It seems like you copy and pasted the drawings of the characters into the flash scene because there is this nasty looking white pixel boarder around them, especially Lacorse when he first appears and it takes away that detail you put into this. I sort of feel like you shouldn't animate this, but make it a comic, that way you can put up a lot of pages faster than doing all the flash stuff. Then with adding to that, this animation was very short, I felt like it should have kept going for a little bit longer. Then you recycled pages and that really annoyed me. Try using a different face on the characters to show their expressions to each comment or seeing them from a different angle would have been really good and shown some more of your artistic abilities.

Good job but it's not great. Keep working dude.

very good, but needs some work

This was pretty nice, i don't know why everyone is dissin this zillis guy, he makes some pretty good points and to be honest you'll get better much slower when everyone tells you your work is just the best. If i was you i would take into account what he has said cause it's all true. the artwork is really really nice for the most part, you may want to work on your staging a bit though, in the scene where the dude and the girl are talking he kind of is sitting, then standing at the door and sitting again, just confuses a little, and also in the beggining when they bust through the door at first i thought he was confronting the bad dude but was really trying to get away, was a bit confusing with those shots, but sound was put together really well, probably the strongest part of the animation, and even though its not ruined if the faces are a bit uneven, it will become a whole lot easier to animate if your characters are constructed properly, usually with the eyes that kind of thing. but yeah its pretty good, just needs a bit of tweaky here and there, but its captivating. Also as nice as it is to hear that its just awesome, this kind of critisism will probably help you more than anything to improve your skills, just remember your not just an animator or artist, but a story teller too.
much love and hope to see more :)

uneven

Most of the artwork is really appealing and fun to look at. Some of it is uneven.
The speech bubble thing is slowing everything down. Generally speaking I think you should develop a more rapid-fire approach to the speech bubbles - there is very little (in this episode anyway) that could not have been said without any words at all.
Most glaring example being when she conks out and has the "conversation" with whoever that is. We (the audience) don't get any information out of that scene - so why the blah blah. A clock and the sun shining in the window can tell us she's been "zonked out" for a while (10 hours or only 3 - what difference does it really make? It's morning)
I think if you're going to create an animated comic without audible dialog - you should try to tell your story with visuals and only use speech bubbles when absolutely necessary. When you've exauhsted all other possibilities. Your artwork is so nice, it's a shame not to use it to it's greatest potential.
