Hi... your last 4 hand poses, maybe you can cut down to 2 hand poses? It seems too much action in a short time. Maybe you can try throwing the hands up at "what possible difference" and another smaller pose at "can i make?"

hope it helps :)

First half looks good , dialogue is aggressive when he is saying "what possible difference can I make" If u keep character there with some settle strong pose instead of going back then It will give strength to character .

I hope this will hlp

When he say i am a slave i would move a bit more the ribcage,

the body looks a bit too much static to my mind

But its probably vert hard to find what to do to a character with a dialogue

otherwise looks really good

its looking good , but i would keep him at the bars un tell the lines" "im a slave" thats the main point an the anguish you want to show, then the last line in anger , also the when he says i may die the facecial pose is not reading all the way looks confused, but over all looking good

Thanks thehive, Neon67,
Its a little late for me to do that (keeping haim at the bars till he says slave), but i think it will work better that ways.
Any ways I will be posting the next update soon.


Thanks

Hey karan! Very nice, I like your first part.
Just your timing at the very begining.. "do you not understand" beat seems abit off. Try looking up before he says "understand" The highest note of that phrase is at "Not" followed by "understand". I have another suggestion for this pose, maybe give him a shiver or clench his hands on the bar, it will make your action stronger. Is abit still now.

At the back, "what possible difference can I make?" the animation dun seem so smooth. I think is because your actions are abit too similar and your timing is not sync well. There are 2 poses of ur hand gesture, i think you can take away the first gesture, straight away go into the 2nd gesture. To be accurate, is the gesture where he say "difference".
Try not to have too many poses in too short a time. Give time for the audience to react to the shot.

Oh ya, one more thing, watch out for his eyes at frame 215. Is all white.

Btw, really looking good. :)

Hi, Nice animation.. I like the energy what u have here..
U have got a nice punch on "I may die .... ". The Hand gesture at " in the arena..." I feel kinda slowing down the energy.. also if u want u can avoid that blink too (may be on fr. 100) I think that will help to keep on the energy.. and ya check the eye direction while going back.. rest all looks good to me... waiting for the next pass... :)

It's looking really good ..timing is superb

when u will start polishing just take care starting small breath...
little camera adjustment will hlp to see hand gesture clearly. I think his hand also playing role to show his energy.



Good luck :thumbsup:
