Here is my charater animation reel. Click and Sit back to enjoy the show with a warm glass of milk, or Critique the heck out of it with a baseball in hand while smiling politely. I enjoy both.

I saw the baseball catch, and just kept going till I saw them all! Great stuff, I love the troll guy's attitude. So inspiring!

edit: you go to the art academy here man? Im in SF too, I go to the art institute on Market. PM me or something and tell me how it is there.

I say it sraight out - I like the stuff a lot.
very good workout on the details and the sudden actions come fresh.

oh...I actually felt for the lonely sack...

I never thought I'd feel for a lonely sack. It's just a sack! Isn't it? :hmm:

I think I'm gonna treat sacks with more respect from now on. And I surely won't leave a sack all by itself!

What a great animation! :thumbsup:

:eek: Wow!

If you're looking for some real solid critiquing from pro character animators, you might want to consider posting some of these animations at the CG-Char Message boards (assuming that you have not at this point). You won't find a lot of fanboy nonsense, but be prepared for no holds barred critiques, but you WILL learn something.

FLAVOUR FLAVOUR! You've worked real hard on that stuff...amazing work all through. Baseball cap chap's chewing mouth gets my vote...brilliant.:)

hi. i saw this showreel a while ago and i was just wondering if u managed to get a job from it? im interested cos im just about to start a showreel and im just finding out what the industry likes to see.

Thanks guys for all your comments

I'f your going for character animtion, BigBilly, Defintily they want good technical skill, acting, and story. The emotional acting in the characer is always what were shooting for anyway, its the whole reason we learn the techique. Ive found that as long as you put your personal unique character into your characters, they're alway much more alive and real.hope that helps
