lol, that's good stuff;)

single comment: the feet are a bit static, maybe they should groove some more too

hey there

great model design .. however i have to disagree about the animation .. he looks like classic IK animation .. all orgionating from the wrists and the ankles ..

it just looks like it's animated .. not like it's dancing .. remember all moves come from the hips and ripple out .. your moves are on the hips .. then there's a lot of IK wobble .. and then static wrists and ankles doing their own thing

do it with FK arms and it'll look heaps better .. then just clean up the feet

love the model though

really badass! great laugh around the office.

Im no animator so I really cant critique on how you actually went about doing it but id say since he's dancing to some disco, really accentuate his hips (or some appendage) when those bumps hit. It looks like the only thing thats synced up are the cuts.

nice little ani though!!

Character design is great, but the animation looks a little unfinshed. There's a couple places where he just lifts off the ground for no reason. I think this is a great start though. Clean everything up a little and look at your arcing action more in depth. You've got some flat lines of motion in there. Also, watch out for the twinning (remember, twinning isn't always a bad thing but in most cases it's not as dynamic and looks a little lifeless).

I also noticed you have very little overlapping action. When he shifts his weight, not everything should come to rest at the same time (it looks unnatural). The render quality is great! Are you gonna do more of these?

Hope these comments were useful and I didn't come acroos as a jerk.

eeenice :)

only thing to complain about is that the knees seems to move too independently from legs joints(hips)

It would be really amazing if the anim wasn't cut.
Try an only sequence (like the boss dancing post)
For the anim You should watch John Travolta, Saturday night fever
and try to reproduce his dance skill
