Ahhh, this is quite adorable!! So kyooot~

It’s a very good transition of scenes I feel, and overall it does its job wonderfully! There are some places where I can see improvement though:

1) Like <img class="avatar" width="50" height="50" src="a.deviantart.net/avatars/b/e/b…" alt=":iconbearrah:" title="Bearrah" /> said, looks like we need a little ‘anticipation” before the fox lowers its head to lick the fish. This is part of the “acting” an animator has to do, or at least, that’s how I think of it! Try to imagine that the character is an actor in a stage play. In order to make the audience “notice” the fish at the same time the fox does, the fox needs to act like it notices it—a pause to look down, adding a head twitch, etc. The longer and more drawn out the “anticipation” is can tell us a lot—it can also add in humor if the fox turns to the viewer to licks its chops in anticipation of the lick itself!

You get some anticipation already as it regards the fish just before licking it, so some of the action is already there~

2) When foxes move, their chests and rear ends bounce with the movement like all canines. The walk here is a bit stiff because we’re missing this “bounce”.

This is a walk in perspective, but it has the “bounce” I mean: darkmanethewerewolf.deviantart…

There’s also some in this one (I heavily referenced the Animator’s Survival Kit for this though, haha): arapersonica.deviantart.com/ar…

Besides those things though, the ear follow-through and the lick—all of the rest is awesome! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> Keep on going, I’m excited to see more!
