allready looking good - just his mouth looks a bit numb.
perhaps he should open it a bit more at some passages.
although when you look at real people speaking they dont open their mouth too much, but in cg things can and have to be exegerated to look snappy and precise

keep it up

Good start, it's a difficult piece of dialog!
There's a bit in the middle however that just seems to just lose the timing. It starts and ends fine, just when the dialog gets confusing as does the sync, just not with the same timing :)
His head movement is good, maybe a little erratic at the beginnin. The eye movement is great, especially when he looks down the left before moving his head there.
The brow movement is a little lacking compared to the broad movements made in the eyes...

I'd like to see how this progresses, i've never seen a sync to such confused dialog!

hello again. great critiques, thx.

towards the end of this clip it gets a little more snappy, im going to emphasize that a little more throughout and yes it is a confused piece of dialouge tho he really doesnt look that confused. the snappy movement should help with that i think. i think i know where you mean the timing is off ill take a look at that too.

here is an update, i havent taken any of your considerations into effect, i read the replys afterwards, i will most definatly next update tho.
