Canada is always good for laughs. Has been since we were 12 years old. Though I am sure we never thought this would become our job. I suppose that is why none of us really gave this work our best. None of us ever really thought, telling stories and graphic design could ever amount to anything, Then COMIC-CON was born! I hope one day I will see your works published through them real soon, do you think https://twitter.com/Scope2Mars could help to get your work seen by the world? Do you think he would be interested?

I liked it

So I liked this for the art and different designs they had a very artistic style and showed off some nice detail the animation was not too bad but seems like the animation could be smoother and just flow from a to b much more fluid but that's something to work on other then that this was a really good piece with a nice style overall

Improved animation is needed


GrahamDrawsButts responds:

Great advice! Thanks!
Yeah maybe I need to animate on more frames or get the motion down pat... Hopefully I'll figure it out when I get to working on my next animation!

I been there and done that. I have a job. (it sucks).

Even though I have a job ( where I'm extremely overqualified and payed garbage),
All this that you are describing in this video seems very familiar and hits home.

Its a common problem with people in their 20's (definitely for college graduates) in the US.
Know that you are not a piece of shit and you are not alone in feeling this way.

I like your drawings and designs.

The animation needs more frames or smoothing.
I'd say this is more of an animatic (animated storyboard) than an animation.

The lip sync in the opening scene didn't match up well with the audio you used.

GrahamDrawsButts responds:

I'm definitely going to have to look up some tutorials on lip syncing! XD
Thanks for the feedback!
I hope you find something that pays better soon! :S

all the best,

Or Newgrounds or somthing. :P It'd be the dream!

Entertaining narrative with unnaturally artistic visual storytelling with it. Feels like it doesn't always match what you're saying, or time in at the right place, but they do entertain; intrigue; surprise. The long love letter and conclusive couch session was pretty creative too. Nice work.


GrahamDrawsButts responds:

Yeah I figured my animations would start getting oddball the more I did em. I get bored of repetitive actions really fast, so it was inevitable shit was going to get weird! Big thanks as always for the great review and I'll definitely work on making things match up more between the audio and visuals for the next animation!
(Talking about a crazy ex next XD)

All the best,
