Very cool! reminds me of 10 years ago, when I ran my first marathon, so some people much older than me passed me during the race, that was fun! haha, nice job Mel!:)

Hi Mel! :D I like the animation very much though the first time I saw it I didn't visually understand that the old man was having a heart attack. the second time I read it well. I think the poses are great and may be a matter of timming? just a some more frames in the pose when he puts the hand in the heart and he's noticing something's going wrong.what do you think? The quick fall is super funny :D. The concept and the movements of the child look great too.

You are just too cool, Mel. It's hilarious how you can put out so much work, and here I am, SLACKER!

I haven't even picked up a pencil in ages. Correction, I picked up a pen last night (I doodled a character for my book-- needed to visualize him). I need to follow your example and draw a little every day. I'll keep you posted.

I think this is great. The contrast is hilarious. The little kid just flows right through while the old guy sorts staggers. Very well done.
