Hi ,

A couple things I noticed:


- The animation looks like its skipping and snapping especially in the beginning. Thats due to your curves not being clean. You can go in and remove the unnecessary keys and try to get smoother curves in general.

- The characters are very floaty , you should hold your key poses and vary the timing a little. Everything has even timing right now.


- The blue characters head turn is too slow and looks linear. You should work more on your arcs in general. It looks like you used IK for the arms which makes it look linear. You can switch to FK and get natural arcs.


Hope this helps ,

PS: you should join this months anim session here. It'll be good exercise.
