The seed has been planted
I like it. Except for a few points in a very few places that could have been removed or smoothed out (I'm talking about the line vectors here), the artwork looks great. Nice character designs. Ripper looks great and I even like the (later to be introduced) cutesy character. I would highly recommend using stream (instead of event) sounds. I know you don't want frames dropped, but it will look better overall if the lips match regardless of what computer you are viewing it on. The jpeg backgrounds work quite nicely with the figures. Out of curiosity, what frame rate are you using? This was an introductory episode which have the tendency to be a tad boring at times (I understand), but I can definitely feel that this will only get better and it is pretty damn nice already. Nudity in episode 3, eh? I think we know which episode you will get the best votes on. I'll be back for more.
