Aaaaaaand this is finally finished! Or at least, as finished as I can get it at this point. I wanted to use After Effects to make it pop, but I'm cool with it like this.

Gawd, I started this about a year ago now. Put it off for a while before finally coming back to it. I did promise I'd finish this one though - not just for you guys, but for myself as well. It's rare that I actually finish my own animation projects (ask ANY of my friends) and even more rare that I finish anything White Shadow related, so this serves as a dual achievement for me.

This is over a year old now, so I know most of the flaws with it, but I'll have it up for critique anyways.

So then, on to the next animation project :D

EDIT:
Here's the version with sound that :iconmortalfate: and Sakasa J. were awesome enough to do for me!

Huh, never critiqued an animation before. I'll give it a shot.

When I first saw this, I was amazed at how smooth the animation was. Like the old 2D animation methods of Walt disney :) The lighting was great, always from the fridge's direction.

There was no sound, but it was made up with the character's body language. The little girl, all innocent, and the white cat, she was obviously very annoyed ;P

Now for the final scene. I thought it was great, especially Tabitha's running. It just read "FLEEE!! :noes: " while the white cat definetly moved like she had a purpose!

I can tell you put alot of hard work into this, and it seems to be paying off ;P A well done animation! A simple plot, but just amazingly done!
What do you think?

Whoa. A very nice animation you have here! I must say.

Their body languages and gestures make up for the lack of sound. Must've taken you awhile to get them right ^^;

Not sure what else is there to spot because it's perfect, from an animator's point of view anyway. Probably a bit longer? *shot* I know it's about two girls and a sandwich but I guess its because I'm used to seeing more introducing before cutting to the chase like for example, the girl is in bed but can't sleep and is hungry so she gets up to eat? Something like that, because that helps establishing a plot if you know what I mean.

But I know this isn't something that you've been dedicated to but just as something to work on on the side away from work. I know that I wouldn't be able to work on something like this. lol

One thing I loved the best is when the screen jitters just as they zip past the camera, adds that sense of speed when they run past. Even though its only a minor detail, it helps create a better interpretation of what kind of movement they're doing. Love it!!
