Noyan Özkan:

that was beautiful

Jon Coppock:

This is a fine piece but a little stiff,

Mahesh Waran:

awesome!! though a subtle movement in the body would
take this to the next level

Sophie Bracmard:

Maybe the shoulder/torso is a bit still. Good animation though.

Amanda Hildisheim:

The head of the animation is lacking of volume. It shrinks and grows. Be careful with that. But over all nice complementary colors for background. And its a great acting analyses of a cat

Aaron Rivera:

Great job! I really like the expressions here, and the movement of the head is great and smooth, with a few snappy movements to bring it all together. Designwise, the cat looks a little too lion-like in the face and neck, so it's a little jarring. The neck also has lots of fur folds, so either that's where all his fat's going or he's been hung by the scruff of the neck for hours. I'd say tone down the neck folds to make it look more natural with the rest of the design. I also think there could've been some slight movement in the rest of the body but as is it's pretty darn solid. The crossing of the front legs and the laying down of the head were both really nice touches that really brought it home. Nice work!

Dan Raigorodsky Bendahan:

that "exactly" is great., maybe you can emphasize a bit with pushing up the head . I love traditional animation!!
