View Full Version : Character Animation Test Critique- Stranded Alien
02-15-2003, 06:01 AM
Hello fellow animators!
This is a simple animation that took me about a week to finish. Please watch it and let me know what you think about it and let me know if you catch anything that absolutely needs fixing. I'm not into modeling or texturing, I would just like to know what you think about the movement (weight, smoothness etc.)
I think that the animation of the alien needs to be exagerated more in certain areas. When he yawns, I think he should hold it at the end and then let go, picture yourself when you make a really big yawn. When he takes the leap for the coconut, he should kinda slow down and crouch down a little to kinda build up for the leap. Also when he shakes the coconut trea I think you should exagerate it a bit more and make the top flop back and forth alot more. Really make it look like he is shaking it violently. When he throws the coconut, I would, again, exagerate it a lot more, really make him build up and then launch the coconut thourgh the air. When he gets disapointed about losing it I would drop his shoulders down a bit, make him show more emotion. Well I don't mean to be to critical, it looks pretty good so far though, I'm just trying to say that yo should exagerate and add more emotion to the alien. But keep up the good work!
