Any comments appreciated.

Wow, fantastic. That fish stuff was pretty cool, and the little skeleton boy, he's really cool! Can we see more of him? What is your plans for him? a Movie? Tell us more.

The gymnast kinda sucked. But in a good way, like how your momma sucks.

Kidding about your momma BTW, She's a nice lady and I wouldn't want to hurt my chances of getting another date with her.

The hateful Chris stuff is neat...I like the "bomb thrown in the car" part

...the chick in the red jumpsuit...her weight shift and center of gravity is way, way off... are also "twinning" her limbs alot...

Twinning? ...yeah, her center of gravity is pretty bad ...Did you think the flips and the "horse" thing sucked too?

Looking forward to seeing your website...when will it be done?

Twinning (unnatural motion symmetry)
Cause: Twinning is when opposite body parts move as exact mirrors of one another. When the left arm motion starts and stops on exactly the same frames as the right arm. This is usually not desired for natural looking animation (although there are certainly times when it is appropriate) This happens when the animator gets lazy and animates multiple body parts simultaneously, or simply copies/mirrors motion from one limb to another & then leaving the resulting twinned motion as is.

Solution: To avoid twinning, after simultaneously animating multiple body parts or copying/mirroring motion, be sure to go in and add keyframe offsets or other naturalistic variations to the movement.

I am glad twinning is an easy problem to fix and will get on it asap along with the center of gravity stuff(not so easy). The animation was rushed and only now realize how evident that is.

Thanks for the critique. I really appreciate the the advice.


...that Jeremy Cantor has a pretty cool website and great animation tips...thanks for that too

Thanks for your positive feedback. I was starting to think I should go back to my old job at Fat Burger.

My age? Too young for cognac and too old for beer...
