Very nice story

This was a good story it has some good depth in it and really drives this animation the animation itself is pretty good and smooth the character work is brilliant and love the use of color here you bring a nice vibe and awsome story to it all so nice job overall on this piece no improvments needed

No improvements needed on this fine animation


I sense... a lot of despair in this animation.

Perhaps it comes from the wish that more time had been allotted to it. It feels like it was unable to fully voice itself.

I wish you the best luck in the future, as I wish myself the same.

Hmmm... can't tell if he's been eaten or just shielded at the end, or maybe he died, and wakes up in a spirit creature's embrace... it's an imaginative and artful journey, even if I don't really understand what it's all about!


What a gorgeous short film. It's sort of difficult to understand the gist of it, but I think it's fluidity and beautiful watercolors make up for it.

the kid's hair gets bigger in every frame, 10 outa 10.
but seriously its pretty surreal, good job
