Details and story setting in the product page.

Please support so I can quit one of my gigs and instead do SW animation for you:

(Note: if you visited earlier and saw no file, sorry about that, I'm new to Gumroad and it didn't upload it at first. It's fixed now)

Oh wow - I'm really impressed. I'm no artist but I know there's a lot of work behind this, and its worth the price. I enjoyed it very much, the handheld scene must be one of the best I've ever seen. Thanks!

Did you really don't know about this community before drawing this? I mean, are you not into SW yourself? If not, well it's even more impressive that you created something that hits all the "checkmarks" of this fetish without even knowing about it.

I hope you do more in the future.

Thank you so much for your kind comments, foreverlurk. I'm scared to be putting my art on Gumroad, but your kind words help a lot.

Yes, I want to make more, if it takes off, I'll be able to do more things.

I did a bit of community research for this one. I'm very interested in the story side of things, I wonder if there are any stories that have been produced that could help with inspiration to do more in the Heidi setting.

Also, somebody mentioned there is very little SW material in the world. Which is a bit striking because there are shrinking and mini themes in a lot of movies, animes and even oldie cartoons.

To me, the relationship to someone so small was very intriguing and what made me think it would be a very unique combination of scary/cute

Hello! I recently purchased your video! I enjoyed it but I have suggestions. Don't take my comments too seriously there just suggestions. Honestly, It was overall great but my biggest issue is with the length. I honestly wish it was longer! I want more but I understand why it was shorter. I know how Time-consuming animation is being an "animator"(I use animator loosely.) myself. You might be working for hours on 5 seconds on animation! But you are asking 16$ for the clip! It isn't full 50 seconds of animation either. I understand the reason why and may I suggest making the intro more dynamic? Have you seen a Danganronpa closing scene? It takes a comic-like format and slowly fills up the screen with different poses and minor situations. It makes flat photos seem more dynamic which is something I would believe would help. You could use it as a sort of explanation of how Heidi go herself in the situation. It would decrease the amount of animation needed and you can focus your attention on other scenes. I like how you used sound to explain the situation Heidi found herself in. I believe you could use it alongside some dynamic situations.
What is your goal with these animations? Are you planning on making an animated short? If this is your goal making a patron might be helpful. You can post work in process on it and small animated segments as you get to it. You can even make a little community over there! I hope I didn’t discourage you. I am just a person who wants to see the things I like flourish. Also, I just happen filled with all sorts of ideas not all are useful. Please continue and notify me when you have another animation. I will be keeping an eye out.

If possible give it a rating on Gumroad, because I posted it on the GTS City forum and some haters are giving it 1 star because I wouldn't give it for free "to name a make for myself before I start charging, like everyone else does"

I never knew making art specially crafted for a community that is not being served would be met with such hostility
