For a first time animation this wasn't bad at all! The movements could use a little smoothing out but the characters themselves looked nice. The background music went along with story nicely as well, it really set the somber mood. Keep practicing and keep up the good work
Do me a favor and look up an animated short called alight on Youtube
it shouldnt be hard to find
this gave me a flashback to that video IMMEDIATELY
nice work here but it's a bit rough is all
( if you need ideas and inspiration for what to make and animate why not get inspiration from other animations and creators, see what ahd how the do things and think to yourself for a bit on what sounds intereting to try ok ? )
Alight did actually inspire me! :D
Also there was a comic about fireboy and watergirl i think it was named Hold Close.
I really wanted to animate those picture and here i am now. ^_^
Great. If this is your first submitted flash it showed you have patients, the best skill in my book. Maybe next time have what this has(good music, good and touching vibe) with dailogue and or a direct story. This is still up there skill wise even without these things.
I can really tell it's your first animation but I still all around still enjoy it, all you can do is get better my dude :)
