this was a project at college. you had to choose what your were making. it can be anything. animation digital art. pretty much anything.

i know some parts are bit weird. and chareter movenmt is not great. but they move.

and is my frist time working with bone tool in flash. so as a artist i am happy to see my animation move. it took ages to find the right song more or less. some day i hope that i could make a real cool song for this. as there is a story for this to also getting the right size for this is a pain in neck

I think the reason why the artworks look "weird" is the way you paint them: the point is to show the volumes (like cel-shading), not to put some shadows near the edges. Think where is the light and where should be the shadows. Like in the cherry tree, shadows on the paper are both left and right (and none on the tree which make it flat). On akari, the front leg should make a large shadow on the back leg.
Well good luck, I give advices but I'm poor at drawing ^^
