The art is epic and I'm loving this boy! He seems so innocent and this is only the beginning of his adventure ^_^

This was a marvelous piece of work! You've brought in what eels like Gorillaz meets a Boy and His Blob. The use of ambient and some electronica was to add some semblance in your story. A bit of the unknown along with some ease in existence but on the slight edgy path as well. The audio effects used for the dialogue was a bit strung some but it didn't effect too much of the presentation or mood of the story. The style was the real winner and star of this short. The mix between 2-D and pseudo 3-D was a beautifully crafted carrousel of visual display and art! The use of shadow and lighting effects added a flare and taste of hope and despair. Again, I think in great respect that this was a wonderful short that brings about a unique semblance of visual art, beauty and some understanding of an ever changing universe and the deepest darkest vids of the unknown. I'm going to present you a sold 4/5 and a 5/5 in voting power. I hope you craft many more visual artistic pieces in the future my friend. I hope you've enjoyed this review as I have enjoyed your presentation. I hope you have a splendid day!
