sexy sexy bicycle said it all
This left me feeling good.
You didn't have a whole lot of sound- You had the airship passing by nicely though. The music was good. If you wrote it yourself it was great- If it's from a video game it's good. The surprising thing was how well it fit though, the music I mean. If I were to guess I'd say it was an "underwater level" sound. But you were able to blend it well with the environment. But, I would strongly recommend continuing the midi soundtrack. But, use original stuff.
I love the Oak Sage itself... It's eerie and very cozy at the same time. Hard to describe.
Your backgrounds are very well done. Your animation is a little-- clunky. Soften it up a tad. Use a bit more detail in actions. I noticed a hand changing from a reach to a grabbed position instantly. But, it's all very well done though.
As for plot and story... Well, there is none... yet. I know you're building to it, but this left me high and dry. Okay he found some "magic pebbles." Big whoop. You ended it abruptly too. You built up to a dramatic punch and then ended it. If you had at least let the sage go into the house or knock on the door and ended it it would have been a tad more acceptable.
Past that... Ship shape. Look forward to more.
3/5 6/10. No more dramtic drop-offs.
