A 10 second club animation
I've spent about 4 days on it so far
Done using Lightwave and my rigging tools
I feel i need to spend another day on it,
But would like some opinion before i do the final tidy up

Overall not bad, but the thing that sticks out the most is he's doing to many actions all at once empasis on words that resemble the strongest points should be empasized with action the most. I think anyways :)

The new one is much better now that the feet moves around. I all so think you should choose the strongest points and emphasise on them.
Have you triad to videotape your self? i found that helpt me allot.
About the face, it is a god thing you have animated the eyebrows, but donīt worry about the lipsync now, I always do that wen i have gotten the acting down.
All in All i nice pice so fare

Keep up the good work

Hi T4D, nice work

I think you could add half a second or so to the start to lead in better on his exasperation. Also the eyebrow pose from 'here' could hang longer in 'goes' and drop out at 'I'. His head could maybe be better if you tilt it up a bit each time he lifts it and delay the tilt returning down.
The rib section seems fairly static
I think the main weakness is in his mouth, as he gets more stressed its opening and closing
could get more exaggerated or he could do with some expression (discomfort, frown) in his mouth that grows with his emotion
I think he should drop his hands at the end faster.

Hope that's not too straight
Go hard:thumbsup:
