Some of the smoothest animation I've seen in a while, splurging on colorists really help you jam as many frames in as possible and it comes out great, but some scenes could do without and still be just as enjoyable. Aside from the slippery look of the animation, your effects are very well polished but lacking in number. Secondary animations like the axe shaking the counter, bottles being brushed aside as the innkeep grabs the bounty, or little reactions from the characters would make it a lot more grounded and 'real'.

Lmao great build up to the climax.

Fuck! Simply incredible. Amazing work!

Absolutely brilliant! The timing and the animation were just superb! Truly funny stuff.

All my stars are belong to you. I was in a real funk for the past hour or so thanks to my day-job, and this knocked me right out of it! Only critique I've got is the background music at the beginning was a bit louder than I'd have liked. Like I get that taverns are quite noisy, but the music made the dialogue a tad difficult to hear. Otherwise, this was a fun watch!!

Man I'm glad i could bring something to your day! Day jobs are a heck of a pain man I get that. Don't forget to do the things you love!
