Hey everybody. Here's a revision of my class assignment. Please, let me know what you think. I need all the help I get. Thanks.

hey there. you've got him moving way too much between major poses. its almost like you have two or three breakdowns between each one, so nothing reads.

also, you're not slowing into your holds, and your holds aren't long enough either.
prime example, at the start where he looks down at the soap box. that needs to be a bit longer, so that it reads.

i'd say, find the three or four or however many KEY poses are in this clip, and lock those down, then get rid of all the inbetween motion and start again in stepped. your timing still needs to be worked out quite a bit, i think.

keep on truckin'!

Thank you so much for the comments. After starring at this thing for so long I didn't see that stuff. Here's another revision. Havent moved to spline yet, or added any ease in or out. Crits would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Hey everybody. Just about to offset the key and move into spline tangents. Any crits before I do would be great. I just want to streamline this as much as possible before its due in a week.

Much better! A lot of it reads way more clearly.
I would have him come to the pose where he puts his left arm behind his back
and rests it on his right arm a lot faster. he's waving his left arm too much before
he rests it.

Be careful with those spline tangents. Your animation should only need a few. be selective.
great work so far.... keep it up!

Thanks for the crits. I will definitely work on that left arm. I'll be starting the spline tans tomorrow, and will be very selective. Thank you again for the feedback.
