"So I got a big gut. Who cares, I'm lethal."

OMG that was funny! :applause:

Very nice animation. Your character was spot on, and I didn't see
anything wrong with the lip sync either.

I hope your going to do more animation.

Hmmm... Can't help feeling this is a really bad idea. You will just be compared to Pixar's work and come up short.

Then there's copyright to be considered, I'm sure Disney wouldn't take too kindly to this.

As for the work the lip synch is pretty rough, doesn't read well, and his chin doesn't move at all when he talks. The poses are not very dynamic, and very floaty inbetween. The soft render quality is quite nice though.

Do yourself a favour and create your own character to work with, it's a big showreel no no to put already animated characters on there, especially when there is no chance of reaching the level of quality that Pixar produces.

Sorry if this comes across as harsh!

Voice sounds a little like Arnold Schwarzeneggar.
The lip sync is pretty bad. it looks like there's only two mouth shapes, open and closed. First, the jaw needs to move, then you've got to bring life to his whole face, especially eyes. The animation of the body is really floaty and unmotivated. Think of a few strong poses and hold on them rather than having his whole body flail around the whole time.

i dont think that is too bad as you describe, but ok, its your opinion, what can i do for the lip sinc, to be more acuarete?

I have to agree with Mattmoss. To animators this character is practically sacred. Really thin ice you are treading on here. I know that was not your intention but how can we NOT compare this to Pixar's version?

It's an unsuccessful work,I think!
