Hey man,

That was definitely a fun little reel! I totally loved that black cat character :)...and the motion on him was great!

As for animation...most of it was pretty solid. Here are some suggestions though:

-The courtroom scene, the scene with the talking soda, the scene with the bee standing on the branch and the scene with the elf standing next to the fire need to go. They're hurting your reel.
-The color/contrast scheme in the fruit scene was too washed looks out of place compared to the nice and contrasty tones of the rest of the reel
-Some of the finger motions on some of the characters were a bit too if they were simply jiggling around for no reason (this didn't happen a lot though...maybe only once or twice where it looked awkward)

Other than that....I'm giving this 4 stars since out of all the reels that get posted here, this has been one of the better ones.

Good luck with the job hunt!

i agree with the above. The fruit clip felt like it was 'an oldie' you cramped in there due to the colors, but the animation turned out to be ok.

The cat with the fonts were nice when it came to the cats' movements, but I felt the logo's were a bit crude in appearance and behaviour.

But, I was impressed with the fluicidy of the overall animation in your reel.

Hi... Fox3d, I have seen your work and it's great. Congratulations!!! I think you are a really good, very good animator.

Very nice...

See you in

(I have also posted here "No hay 2 Sin 3" titled: "VFX From Argentina". But I think the title wasn't enought interesting...)

Bye and good luck...

you have an awesome reel thats for sure.
my critiques are to get rid of all the elf scenes comepletely. the court room one is hard to hear, and a little boring compared to the other things in your reel. also, i noticed the movement in the elf isn't as advanced as the movement in all the other characters. he seems stiff and unappealing in comparison.

i agree that the animation is a little bit "bubbly" and jiggles alot, the secondary action is a little on the heavy side. HOWEVER, i actually found it quite pleasing and cute and its almost done in a way that could be pulled off as a stylistic choice. that is just my opinion though, and companies may not like it as much. i really enjoyed your reel. keep up the good work :)

i agree with everything said

good reel, get rid of the elf.

thank you very much!!

I've been thinking to animate in another way, however, I like this style


yeah, regarding to the goblin It takes off the main idea of the reel, that was a production done with low time and we couldn't improve some details

thank you, your opinion is very important for me


in my country this elf was for a tv serie, the time of production for each episode was around two days ,each episode is 4 minutes long, and I was the animator
