I got it by right click "Save target as..." waiting any seconds donwloaded it through a 5.2ko/s bandwitch.

About the first dance motion (hip moving) : I would slow it down, and move the hip throug the vertical axis. And move the knees relative to the hip orientation.

But really good animation though... The fall is really right done. Are you going to had just a tiny background music/song?

Nicool: I want to thank you for your comments. I think you are right about the hips and Knees in the first movement. Relative to the music I was thinking about Fame or Flash Dance soundtrack.

koroko: Thanks for the notice. Five hundred people and only 3 replies, wow.
Gracias por el aviso tio, esta chungo esto de encontrar un servidor gratuito para poner animaciones. Y si la gente podia comentar aunque sea para decir que no les gusta y es una mierda, es mejor eso que la indiferencia.

Man: Thanks for your comments about the avatar, Futurama rocks!!

The link worked for me. Some critique: First, if this is a work in progress, it's in the wrong section... should be in either critique or focused critique.

Anyway, the animation is pretty good. I think the hand gesture in the beginning where he has his arm outstretched and bends inward needs a better arc. It looks too stiff now. The tiptoe part could be a bit faster, I think. Right now, the speed of it is realistic but I think you could push it for a more snappier, cartoony look, depending on the style you're going for. The jump is what bothered me the most. It seems as if he's lifted up into the air instead of jumping. I think you could push the antitpation pose lower, and currently, he's sticking to the ground upon lifting off. Try taking out a frame or 2 from between the anticipation pose and him in the air. I think the spin could be a bit faster too, to make the fall more impactful.

Just a few suggestions to take as you will... I think it's a pretty strong animation as it is.

neonoodle: Thank you very much for your suggestions, I really appreciate it. This animation is the finish version but when you watch one thing a lot of times you donīt see some mistakes. Thaks again.
