Background inspired by Deadlyyucca's artwork, I couldn't find her or other artwork of her on twitter but I'm a fan already.

Does anyone know where can we see more work from her?

I think you've managed to tell an entire story there :] Good job!

thanks for the advice Eishiya, I've done some adjustment on it, how do you think now?

I don't think you even need to do all that to give them more character, changing the timing of the existing frames would be enough! For example, if you hold on the frame where the gun is halfway up, it would make the character look hesitant.. If they move the gun quickly after that, it would show that they're determined to do it anyway, whereas if they move it more slowly and/or also hold the frame immediately before the shot, it would show that they're uncertain to the very end. If they move the gun to their head quickly, and then hesitate at the last moment, that implies a different sort of story, and so on.

omg thank you so much for your comment, I fixed the frames speed so the gun shot has more energy. Also it is a great advise about the character Eishiya, I will make him more character (maybe smoking before taking his own life or showing the fear because he wasn't ready to pull the trigger ) and I will upload the new one tomorrow. You're awesome Eishiya, thank you

A warning on the thumbnail would be helpful for people who aren't comfortable with depictions of suicide.

The environment looks great, as does the blood splatter. The animation on the character feels a bit... characterless? The timing's very even, almost robotic. There's no hesitation (or energy), no weight to the gun, the arm just moves linearly from A to B. I think it would help a lot to make the timing less linear. Everything after the shot looks good, though! Much better sense of weight there.
