Inspired by some sketches I made while on a trip to Tokyo :) 

(I hope no one is able to read neither kanji nor hiragana..)

It probably would be a bit better if rain wasn't copypasted, wasn't falling exactly vertically and was a bit faster. Circles on the ground appearing at the same time and staying too long look a bit weird. Through this repetetivity could save a lot of space if this was ingame animation. Also I like it. Yay. YAAAAAAAAAAY. ya.

Don't see Hiragana, just Katakana. Kahihara :P

And the thing on the ground is garble and what looks like Katakana E or the Kanji Kou, which means craft or engineering.

Nice scene though :)

Thank you guys for the critique, I appreciate it greatly! Decided I will get rid off the animation and rather work on static image, will get on that when I find some free time :)

Big fan of the color scheme, the red is very striking, and the details of the electrical wires. I don't think you're doing yourself any favors by animating it though, for the same reasons others have said. The chick is very well drawn and lit.

Nice mood but the rain drops are too repetetive. Some more variation in their speed and length would look better. And the splashes suffer from the same problem. I liked the color choice too.

It'd be super hype if the rain interacted with the character.

a3um: Changed the preview, thanks for pointing out and I am glad you like it :)!

Craftypixel: Wow, I apologize, I didnt know about that! Alright then I take back the statement with 13 colours, thats only true if the rain is considered as 1 colour, thanks for pointing out :)

also, make sure your preview is under 10kb to be displayed on front page. I like the mood

- *68* colors in a single frame. The opacity differences lead to different shades when rendered. If it was simplified , and less effects were used it would be a more appreciated piece. -
