View Full Version : Please critique Jack in the box Animation

Hello everyone,

A day ago I have posted this animation:

in the "Finished Work: 3D and Animation" forum. I would appreciate you to critique every single aspect of it. Mostly I am interested in critique of the textures and the total look.

The Animation was done with Maya, Photoshop and AE as college assignment. Here is a direct link:

Thank you.

pieces seem to fall un-naturally. the recoil on the winding is good.

texture looks good, except it seems blocky - maybe its just from the compression. Lighting makes it kindof flat. maybe add some dramatic spotlights with contrasting shadows. two in front and one in back.
