The Foxes and the Grapes

I created this animation that is based on the Aesop's Fable story 'The Fox and the Grapes'. I made my own version of the story with a few of my own changes. :)

Thank you. :)

Aw, when she reached the grapes I thought they'd get along and eat grapes and maybe hook up and procreate and have a huge family of foxes for potential fable-making future! Being the same opposite-gender species and all, though I guess that's the intentional twist here! Apart from the incredibly bubbly thighs looking a bit weird from the front, it was great though; nicely animated and all.

It was really good!

This is a pretty good version of Aesop's tale or in this case,a 'furrytale'.The colours and designs for backgrounds and the characters brighten up every scene.There's a nice little touch of humor added there,which not only makes the story more interesting,but also gives life to the character as everyone can see that the male fox is obviously not as light on his feet as the female fox(who may be a gymnast) who appears later on.The movements could be more improved,as the characters seem a little stiff when they move(in the scene when the female fox jumped up the tree,her knees look less bent than they should be,maybe because it is from her front view,it just looks a little awkward.)A little backstory could be added to explain where the character is going to in the first place(surely,it can't be just for a tree) and why(for all that trouble sliding down the hill)?Overall,it's entertaining and quite well done,so keep practicing and good luck!

Thanks for the feedback ^^. I included the female fox in the animation to show a contrast between the two foxes and that by putting in enough effort, she got what she wanted, unlike the male fox who gave up too quickly. :)

Not bad. Clunky in areas, but as time goes on and you gain experience I feel you get better at the small stuff.

Nice work on the shifting hair.

Although seriously that main character? A hot blonde flirts with you and you just walk away?

Dude forget the grapes, there is another low-hanging fruit to grab that looks very sweet to me.

Also props for being able to make an attractive female character with-out exaggerated features.

Toby512 responds:

Lol, thanks. :)
