This is an awesome piece, but the lack of frames makes it feel unfinished and a cleaner un hatched line quality would be great.
Excellent character designs and background! The smear frames were a great touch.
Woowzers, great stuff!
I'm in awe!

Nice production values and artwork! Clearly you spend a considerable amount of time working on this, and it shows.
If the whole thing had the fluidity of the first 45 frames, I would say this is easily the strongest one I've seen so far. The first few times I watched it, I didn't notice his gesture with his hand covering his face. I would recommend adding at least 4 or 5 frames of him easing back into that pose before he starts the dialogue, that way it reads better! And when his mouth closes at frame 33, I feel that's a bit too soon. It should close around frame 40 to match the word "Blade".
The second character's gestures are also pretty good, just need a few more frames to give it the same level of fluidity. I think this one is definitely worth going back and polishing! Nice job overall!
