Hi this is my first Post, I just recently graduated from an animation course in Argentina
I just settle back at home a few months ago I want to get out to foreign country again and Im working in my first characters models.

this project is the water Pot based in my webcomic

short story.- it was just a pot that Tlaloc the aztec water god gave to the aztecs to grow their plants and crops, the problem became alive and had a child like personality and with his head always sprays an unlimited water supply and always flood the city.
I just wanted to make it 3d and simulate his water powers

here is the video with the rigging and with a walk and water animation


Ps.- sorry for my english Im not very good at it.

Wow - what a great character.

I'm not quite sure what to critique with the animation being so stylized, but everything feels a bit too even in the animation. Kind of a general response, but try adjusting your spacing/timing in the walk to get more zing.. appeal.

I don't know much about effects animation, but the spheres work alright - some variety would be good though.. even a simple blend shape to get more of a drop shape and a little small squash and stretch would add to the appeal.

Ohh.. on another look though, I notice the hands are static/dead.. you have great posing in the comic - think about the animation keys like drawings and I think it will really help the action. Rigging some wrists action might help too.
