Round Yzma! :)

Cristy L. Einung:

This is my favorite! The only problem is that both characters freeze when the other speaks, but the animation is absolutely beautiful.

mevlut kara:

excellent work. beauty.

Marckus Duverger:

Wow!!! This is awesome, super well done.

I noticed the guy in the guy in the back isn't moving much in the beginning, his starting pose is great though & the scene is still amazing!

Howard Cameron:


Murat Sari:

Love the designs of the characters

Amartya Mukherji:

FIRST RANK for me. This is going to top the charts for sure. Really nice. Loved it. I dearly wish to see the finished output.


Woho ... Love the mum character ... cruella + Yzma

Shadrak Guichard-Foster:

I absolutely love this! My only issue is the beat timing when he drops just after "Oh mother". The swing would be nice to see on mother rather than afterwards. Other than that great work!

Samuel Couffe:

Awesome work ! But my girlfriend is in love with your character now. Thank you !

Grace Mojica:

Wooow, love it.

Sarah Johnson:

Awesome! Fantastic characters and acting!

J.K. Riki:

LITTLE bit overacted in places, but hey, that is some world-class 2D right there, so whatever! Wonderful work, I hope you land 1st place for this one!

Brian W.:

Wow, really nice. Exquisite timing, great poses, and just the right amount of overacting. I know you'll get criticism about how static the characters are when they're not speaking, but jeepers, you've got only a month, and you spent your time well by putting the finishing touches on things that matter.

Christopher Scott:

Best i've seen so far

Richard Adams:

One of the best I've seen so far.
