It was a short but fairly nice animation. The scenery looked very eerie and mysterious, just as the character who was travelling through it. Many questions shroud the character such as; Who are they? Why are they there? How did they get there?

Then there was a strong symbolism about the butterfly that the character had found as well. Butterflies usually symbolize change or rebirth, so it was interesting that you had used this insect in particular to play as a guide for the character. Other than that, nice work!

I'm glad you're picking up on some of the finer point there. In the planing stage of this animation I ended up with a 50 plus page art/world bible and I will say that the vagabond character has a tragic past and he uses Curiosity in everything he does as a coping mechanism to try and distract from that. So yes I do have a few more stories in mind and also potential characters in mind as well. This is a big world and a lot of thing happen and have happened in it.
