I just got A:M for Xmas, and this is my first (well ok, second) animation attempt (it is one of the tutorials.)

Comments/crits are welcomed!

Well if your looking for CC then I would make sure no body parts go through other body parts for one :thumbsup: , otherwise for your first its actually really good. Keep it up

Yea, I realized after rendering it that the rabbit's hands did go through his legs....won't take too much to fix though...

WOW...awesome first attempt. I would HATE to show MY first attempt. It's locked in my pc somewhere with a 3-password protection.

Anyway, your second walk can use some more head rotations. Remember that everyone looks where they are going (supposedly), so as the rabbit turns, his head should turn in the direction first. Eyes first, followed by the head, and then rest of the body (which is next, torso or pelvis? Depends on the type of character).

And I think you know that the wrists need to be toned down. And try overlapping the may or may now work.

Good luck!
