This was friggin awesome. It's full of imagination and the animation is incredibly smooth. I have no complaints except that I thought the main character's walk cycle was slightly awkward at time. Nitpicking aside, great job! This is front page worthy material for sure.
Big ol' 5. You worked dead hard on this and it was a pleasure to see it through the works, Your animation is superb, fluid and full of life! I can only wish to achieve the charm and character your work oozes someday. You took a huge step up from your last works and combined a whole new bunch of skills to pull this together! the backgrounds and atmosphere and colours are just gorgeous! Really fab how this moves along to the music, the pacing is great! Worth every minute of work, late night and waves of stress you may have undergone ahaha, now go chill and ponder up a new idea for your next big animation, I want more! ;)
No criticisms, this was fantastic in every way.
