Hey Guys,

the first time.

Hey Xenoz,

Good work man. I enjoyed that demo reel a lot. I love the design of the characters and objects, they really fit with a overall design theme. Keep up the good work and you'll be going far soon.

I really wanted to dislike this reel as soon as the credits started to appear, as the whole matrix/computer loading thing is so tired. But actually you've got a lot of talent. Please re-think the presentation though, the wiggly lines around the edge of frame were distracting and pointless, as was the typing credits, so slow I almost turned off ;) - the actual work was not bad at all for one year of learning 3D, stronger on the modelling than the animation, but a good start, can see you finding work fairly easily, you obviously have a decent all-round toolset.

Thanks Mizzimere, Glad ya like it! :)

Now matmoss, is it really that annoying? Well, I'm sorry if it is, This is my first showreel, I hope the next one will improve a lot, and don't worry there'll be no more loading / wiggly lines effects as you have pointed out here! :)

Actually, I'm more into Special FX, but some say I'm better with animation, now you said I'm stronger on the modeling. Hmm, maybe I'll just continue learning them all untill I got the answer myself. :bounce:

Anyway, Thanks for the Critique!

Maybe I was exaggerating a little for dramatic effect :)
Nothing wrong with learning a broad range of skills, makes you more suitable for smaller studios as you can wear lots of hats...
