SirCannabisClock responds:

with my

Yup I do!

It's a very nice picture.

SirCannabisClock responds:


Snow is coming down a lil too fast

and the tree could wobble a bit other then that looks good!

SirCannabisClock responds:

Yeah, maybe the branches. I think the snow falling would be the first on the list though

Simplistic snow for a simplistic tone.

I, for one, prefer the snow this way. Now if you were making some seriously art-intense animation, then maybe the snow wouldn't fit in, but even then it's snow- it's been a few months since I've last seen it snowing, but I'm pretty sure it looks like a small glob of white. Just like yours. Even if there are only like three different frames of it, it still looks fine.

I like the background, I like the virgin snow ground, the grass growing by the tree's roots, and of course, the tree itself. The music fits the mood, even aiding in making the mood, and it's just so gosh-darned serene I just love this submission. If I had a particularly grueling day at work, I can see this as being a pleasant little retreat. I, however, do not have a job, but even the jobless can experience moments where only a snowy tree can remedy.

I'll tell you what, though - damn fine setting for an after-burn locale, where you just wanna sit and look at shit. Damn fine. <3

SirCannabisClock responds:


Overall: Not really an animation

- Looks good
- Appropriate music
- Is little more than an animated picture
- Snow effect needs work

Perhaps if you added a back story to the scene it would boost the rating like in here:

SirCannabisClock responds:

Well thank you for your input sir

I actually couldn't agree more, the snow is definitely off. I feel it moves too fast and goes all over the place. Furthermore, I considered adding a short story but it would of meant adding a character to the picture.
