If I'm allowed to be nitpicky:
-animation of waterfall could be few nanoseconds faster
-characters do not move after stopped which is painfully unnatural (though when they move, it's a poetry)
-sway of trees and bushes could be more smooth (grass movement is perfect)
...and yes I am totally aware that this is a "work in progress" therefore I'm sure you'll make it even more jaw dropping in the end
I honestly love direction You've picked, and was sold at the very moment Josh said that You're pursuing the quality of IWD art. If You are still by whatever reason worried that it is not good enough to compete with IWD look/feeling, then don't, because -bloody hell- it outstands even my nostalgia-spoiled recollections of it! And common, How better could it get?!
You just made me sure that giving you more money than I honestly should back then (given my situation) turned out to be an excellent idea :D
Thank You Obsidian!
