So close yet... so far away! Curious why their heads don't implode in that absolute void of space but: this was quite nice.


and then they both starved to death in the vacuum of space, the end.

That's kinda cute

I thought this cartoon was sweet. Plot might've been pretty redundant with the "this thing wants to go to this thing so they try to go to the thing but then loses hope after few tries but it all goes well in the end and goes to that thing" plot, but I thought it was still cute, mostly when they hug and spin. I think that your usage of skewing should be toned down more because it was often used here and it really bothered me a lot. There's some really good frame by frame parts in this. Wished you used those skills on the skewing/tweened parts. I didn't really like the space ship part where it tweened all over the place. Try redrawing frames of the ship bouncing like jello, kind of like what Studio Gainax/Trigger does in their stuff, since it would have fit your simplistic cartoony art style. I also feel the characters weren't described well or introduced to us. They were just... there. You should've given us more time to in-depth and make us get to know the characters more in the beginning. Props on you for uploading on Newgrounds though. All together, I think this short was cute but sorta two-dimensional and rushed lookin. I believe you can make a better cartoon. You got some talent in ya, bb

Thanks, this was my first short and was pressed for time (As this was part of what I needed to graduate this year). I honestly do agree on the ship part and some "tweening" (I actually didn't do much tweeting, but a lot of editing frame-by-frame, which basically looked like tweening. Kind of lazy I admit), and this criticisms are really helpful for the next short/animation I work on

I am biased but amazing job
