What do you think? ( ) (10,9 mb MOV) Medium Res (12,8 MB MOV) High Res

hey ronnie..... I thought you were doing the ninja short thing, hehe

nice work

good things - I liked the character desing, great little dwarfs :cool: , the lightning effects felt warm and nice, great choice of color to them, great atmosphere :)

bad things - animation could use more work(unless thats the style you guys were going for), but I asume its just a tv-commercial so it aint that important, I think the characters could have been more flexible tho...

all in all for a commercial its great :thumbsup:

Nice work! I like the character drawing style a lot. The lighting effects and general ambience are also very good. Couple of things that caught my eye, the rendering of the lines in the background starts to flicker (assume its a distance/line width/anit-aliasing issue), and the animation could definitely use some work in places, but overall its a really nice commercial, congrats!

Ac0rN: Ninja short, soldier short, everything is on stand by, exept for work... thanks for the nice words on the commercial. The animation is made as stiff as was it cut out in paper, but you're right, they could have been more flexible.

mattmos: Thanks, all the texture/character design is made by Erik Petri, amazing danish drawer.

Thank you very much Matt, it's always nice to get some feedback.

I've downloaded your film. I like the way you got the 2D look to work so well with the 3D world. Going from that rough handdrawn look into the smoother 3D world, I like the way the look of the flat main character changes into volume.

Best regards
