How many more scenes do you have, Kat? You've really done a lot of work! I have four more scenes that are animated. and yes I've done a lot of work, but... most of what I've been doing for the last year is learning, and reworking scenes that were done.. the real work will come in the next new 20 scenes, attempting new material like a muddy pool, and a stream of water, rain and probably other things I've never tried it's really hard to keep going forward in the animation, :) when I see so much I want to fix. ;) Thanks largento and HomeSlice

Well, your sense of mood has really come a long way, Kat - the lighting is very strong here. I also love the little character acting details - like the drumming the fingers on "but its meaning is concealed." One thing stand out though - the eyes - while you have shapes and expressions, they always stare straight ahead. Once you have all other animation done, go back and add some eye darting, swiveling etc.. nothing too extreme - and your characters will really jump off the screen! Your tenacity is admirable, I can't wait to see what you are up to next!

They need something to do besides just the conversation.

What are they doing at this camp? Cooking? sleeping? Looking for something? There must be something else they need to do besides talk. Testing their bows? Sharpening their arrows? Roasting marshmallows? Something.

I agree there are too many centered eyes. Here's a post I did about not-straight-ahead eyes


Your tenacity is admirable, I can't wait to see what you are up to next!

I'm also eager to see your progress on this.
