Looking pretty good, I wouldn't have the second character point when he asks "do you like me" Just keep what you have with the head and loose the pointing.

Hi KyleG,
Thanks for the crit! I was alittle worried about overacting the characters before! I'll make the change! Thanks :)

I agree with Kyle. That sounds like a defensive question he's asking and the pointing is an offensive gesture. Actually, I would go in the opposite direction. He could recoil a little, turning his head away a little, bringing his shoulders up, pulling the cup back to prepare himself for the answer. These would be very subtle moves.

I love this blocking though. She's spot on, clearly in control of the conversation. Can't wait to see it finished.

Hey Brian,
Good point, I'll make him act more defensive. I was trying to see it the offensive approach could work but I guess the voice does'nt really match haha :) I'll post the clip when its finished. Thanks :)

Its just a blocking, but I'd like to proceed after hearing some thoughts or crits on it! Thanks :)
