Please take a look at my ball with tail animation done as part of my assignment at Takshaa academy for the artisits.

Your valuable C&C'c are welcome.

The initial idea was to make make him jump on the bigger ball and roll out of the screen, then the ball alone would come running from left to right then the bigger ball chasses him on to the left of the screen. Since i had a few time constraints i had to finish it up.

Anyways thanks for the comments :)

I hate youtube when it comes to C&C animation because you cant go frame by frame :twisted:

From first glance I would check the arcs on the tail. Secondly, it just hard to judge, I mean overall the animation looks good. But the tail seems kinda stiff, almost as if there is no overlapping at all and it's just being affected by the ball after the fact.

Also, the squash for the last hop should be more pronouced with a little more anticipation to sell the jump.

Just my two cents. Good luck :thumbsup:

Agreed, same here :) any options for the Quicktime upload you could suggest?

Thanks for the comments and your right that i haven't worked on the overlapping actions for this animation :), but will definitely concentrate on all you comments in the next set of works.

Well since you asked :twisted:

I'd get a wordpress blog which is free. There is a plugin available for quicktime posts. You could even zip up the quicktime file and just provide a link via wordpress.
