I really like some of the music/visual synching - specially the bit where the dolphin's playing in the water and you fade in/out 3 pics. In face, everything from that point forward was kinda lovely.
One criticism - I found that had you not explained it in your author's comments, I wouldn't have understood the story at all. Also, you make the picture of the frozen dolphin look almost joyful and beautiful, whereas it should surely be a bit more melancholy - perhaps end with the dolphin in a more submissive, sad sorta pose. We anthropomorphise everything, so simply having the head held down, maybe the body a bit more curled would have made us more likely to think 'poor dolphin'.
As mentioned, I really liked some of the scenes you picked, such as the boy/reflection watching the dolphins.
However, the drawings themselves were almost sloppy-looking in some ways. Mainly because of the shapes of the boy/dolphins, which were at times almost atrocious. You kinda need to study the form a bit more if you wanna improve.
Though short, it is a sweet piece that sticks in the mind. Specially after hearing the story, it's a piece I'm unlikely to forget.
Har, i'm glad you liked it. In anycase, just to defend myself, if you think my characters are sloppy, then don't watch my other cartoons. It's my style. If I really wanted, I could make them all anime, or just to piss you off, chibi, but that would be really lame. And the dolphin frozen bit, well, that's all good advice. I'd take the time to go back and change the drawing up a bit, but i'm really too busy working on my next cartoon.
Thanks for the super review!
