Ben Halstead:

This is very ambitious work! Huge respect points for the sheer number of drawings you did. Two main recommendations: Be careful with your volumes, which appear to be morphing / shrinking slowly over time. Did you animate straight through on this? If so, next time start with just a few keyframes to make sure your shapes stay consistent. My second suggestion is that your animal anatomy needs work. Consider taking trips to the zoo to draw the animals, or check out Rhino House (

Nathan Greensmith:

Great style and characters, I like it.

Bruno de Coninck:

The biggest problem for me here is the intentions of your characters. What is the first zebra is doing with his left hooves after the lion said "call him"? Also, I stongly suggest you to try to use reference. It will help you to improve the acting of your characters! Good luck!

Kyle Novak:

looks like you worked hard on the animation, but learning to draw is just as important as learning to animate.

William Allinson:

Totally charming in it's rough approach - loving the focal spotlight too
