very nice animation tests. There are several things I like to compliment you on.

First I really like how you added secondary motion to different parts on his body. It really adds in more of the effect. Also the constant movement to show weight is really well done and acurate.

Your character is very good and simple which works very well in this case. Nice colors and interesting

Your animation is good and interesting because of his small legs and geting a tall character to walk in short steps like that is tough sometimes. Points for you.

I look forward to watching more of this animation if you are creating a short sometime in the future.

Good luck

Thats some damned fine animation. My only suggestion would be to maybe give him a bit of breath. Since its such a big chested character I think that would really add to his life. Very well done and I agree with scottiedoo, you made him really live already with that secondary animation and constant movement.

i'm a fan of Pixar and must admit u got a touch that really looks like them...

cool tests. You have some nice fluid motion in them
There are 2 things I think you could improve tho. When he stands on 1 leg, the anticipation in his torso is too much for such a small movement. Also, when he jumps on the pipe, his initial impact feels too weak. His spacing as he falls to the pipe is either to linear or it actually slows down before he hits( my player wont let me see it frame by frame). Make sure yur f-curves are steep leading into the impact and itll look cooler.

Hi all!!,and thanks for all coments and critics,Im working hard for the shortfilm,I just designe backgrounds...bye!!Chong good observation.

yeah, for the most part your animation really very good. though I think you might over-exaggerate your anticipation and after-actions. just a bit. looks really good, though.

Wow. Very nice... Only thing that really caught my eye other than what's mentioned is that his arms feel too stiff in the first walk. With a determined expression like that I would expect them to be used in the walk a bit more, maybe a little more bent so as to assist with the movement.
Looking forward to the animation :)

Hi all!!,and thanks for the coments and critics,makes me happy!!:) ,but I like more for anoting in my skeetchbook.

Nice work. The only things that I would mention are that perhaps he is a bit too 'twinny' in the jump, i'd suggest a bit more offset across the axis. Also, perhaps there's a bit too much followthrough in him, he seems like he has very loose muscles, all of the time, instead of loose/tight/loose, etc...
And, perhaps lean him back a bit more on the slide.

Loved it all....I really did;)
