Hiya guys and gals,
I just finished doing Teaserwork at Starvault and got some fresh new scenes to add to my Showreel. It's a bit big filesize-vise but bare with me becuase it's worth it (I think).
Tell me what you think!

Gah! My stupid provider, shuts on and off....
Well nice to see it working anyhow.. So how was it?

i think i'd like to see more of the anubis character moving around. if it's a modeling reel then the stuff at the end is relevant, but if your prime focus is animation, then you don't really need it as much. it just feels a little bit like a filler at the moment, as almost half of the reel is dedicated to the model of that one character. put him through his paces!
showing off your animation skills doesn't mean that you have to show how well you can rig a character, unless that's what you're aiming for (in which case i'd say there's too much animation in your reel)
looking good, but.

Hehe Your probably Right on the dedication part, how ever it is an Animation/Rigging showreel. So there is about a fifty/fifty there, I however tried to show only some of the parts for the Anubis not all of it.
I thank you for your critique, it was most welcomed.

I'd get rid of the first bit at the beginning of your reel, I dunno what it is, that circle thing on the grey background? just start it with your name on black is fine.
The dice that fall is nice, but I'd cut a few frames at the end of it, it holds for too long. Actually I'd start with the gaming bits right away, much stronger than the dice i think. I'd get rid of anubis walking altogether unless you plan on doing some more work on it. seems too floaty. The rigging portion of him is fine to leave in there I think. i would just redo the video because it seems a little bit too long (like half your reel), you play around with features too much. I'd say do it up again and this time don't play around with the viewports as much (working in the workspace is different than trying to show it off). So just zoom in once, move something, pan, move something, make everything clear instead of pan/zoom/pan back/rotate then move something. The first portion is fine, but then you have some camera movements for nothing. It might take you quite a few tries to get it right but it'll be worth it in the end.
keep at it! good luck!

thanks for the Critique! Yeah the liquid name is kinda a waste, was just using it to time in the music, Should I still remove it?Yeah I where thinking about replacing Anubis with something else I'm working on right now, how ever I also plan to use it to do someother stuff. But yeah I will revise that part closely!
Your right on the Rigging part it's abit too shaky and unfocused, i wasn't really aiming to do anyting in perticular, will retry that part also!
Thanks for the Critique again!
