Where did you get rig and the model of the man?

The main thing I would fix is your composition, you're breaking the 180 rule. First shot the dog is on the left and the man is on the right, then you cut and they switch places, and then back again. Once you establish where your characters are on screen, you want to keep them more of less in the same spot, so its not jarring to the audience when you cut. Hope this helps

Thanks Kyle,

I will work on my composition. I will keep the dog on the left and the man on the right. I will try to find a more neutral camera angle to emphasize both the canine movements and the human movements. I will also stretch out some of the ending key frames. I think that it is going a bit too fast at the end.

Thanks for your comment. Feed back like this is what makes an Animators like me better at my medium. So, thank you very much for your constructive criticism and a boosting reminder of the do's and don'ts of Animation.

Thanks,
Jen "J-Way" Hathaway :)

I got the rig of the man at the 11 Second Club website... I think that he is also on creativecrash.com, but I am not 100% sure on that. But, yeah... I got him on the 11 Second Club site.


ALSO... here are my new playblasts... All I have to do is curves!!! Hopefully I can manipulate them AFAP (as fast as possible). :buttrock:
