Very very nice. I loved the colors and textures. The only thing I'll critique is the monster is kind of hard to see because it's so dark (although that may be a creative choice). And I noticed some skinning issues with the shoulder and bicep. Especially in one shot where you have a medium shot of the woman lifting the staff. Terriffic work though, I can't wait to see the next installment. Keep us updated.

Very nice animation, well modeled with great character movement, while the monster has a great sense of scale.

My only critisim would be where's the rest of it, just as it gets good its gone! :wip:

thx thx a lot for ur encouragements !

indeed i have a problem of skining. In fact i have learned the principles of skinning , combustion and animation in one month (that doesnt make me an animator). I have been working at night for one month and two weeks. This video is my first anim and i hope the second will be better.
