this is an impressive drawing...animation...thing. it is pretty breathe taking.

however, there are some things that take the effect away, like the waterfall foam. i can understand that it can be tricky to draw, but in my opinion, you should have made it a little more transparent.

the reflections look more cartoony than everything else. if the rest was drawn in a similar style, it could work.

the biggest take away are the outlines for the building. they don't belong at all, for ruin the tranquility of the scenery.

all in all, its a pretty good thing you have there.

Very nice shading, background, everything but...
Althought the foam effect looks alright, I'd say have less foam on the first waterfall and more frames so the water looks like it's moving slower, also... the front fall kinda just looks like it's wobbling, as opposed to gushing. Not sure how you'd rectify that... I suppose have more "tween" frames.

I see you are asking for a critique! :) But it looks unfinished to me--it's completely lovely, except for the places where you still have hard black lines outlining the buildings. There's so much color depth everywhere else that those areas are pretty glaring.

Awesome! Makes me wish I could do backgrounds like this.

I agree. A few more frames would make this a lot better.

i say add more frames... it doesn't look serene with the water looking like they're gushing...

but wonderful landscape ^_^
