Hi people, it's been a long time i didn't post! Now i'm working for Electronic Arts Montreal like character animator, thank you people who gave me lot of feedback on my past fighting animation! :thumbsup:

Suprise suprise, once again great work. Maybe on the tip toe hold he is off balance (a bit too far back?) but that is it. Mine goes dark after 17 seconds so I don't know if there is more after that.
Once you add the facial expressions this will be really good.

Thank you man :thumbsup: , indeed, after 17 seconds there is nothing cause i'm thinking about the end lol! and of course i'll try to add facial expression(my first time) to add more quality to this.

Looking excellent man! It might be easier to give more detailed crits if I could frame through, but the only things that stand out to me are:

Like marble said, on the toe stand his weight isn't over him, he would fall backwards.

At the same spot, I think the overlap on the fingers is too much.

I know he's a robot, but it seems like when he repeats/mirrors actions, they're exactly the same. Like the steps in the beginning for instance could use some subtle differences, maybe not moving the exact same amount or the hands don't close on one of the steps or whatever. It's being nitpicky, but it might add that extra little somethin' somethin'.

Everything else looks great - fun, appealing animation! Hope that helps. Looking forward to the facial stuff.
