Hey all, first-time post, so I"m assuming I'm doing this right :D

This is a dialogue piece for a school assignment, so critique the hell out of it! Tear it apart!!!

Garden Gopher (c) Tex Avery
or at least I think so.

Somehow I don't really feel I need the gesture he makes, when he says "from".
I think it could work, if you just kept him in his initial pose, facing away from the other character, and just turned his head, maybe the body following slightly.

Don't know if it would work better, but somehow the gesture he makes, feels kinda forced, like you HAVE to have a gesture in there, and I don't think you need that, in this dialogue.

That's my 2 cent. The animation it self - technically - looks pretty solid.

By the gesture, do you mean his hand movement? or him dropping back into the final pose.. just to be clear.

Initially I had him put his hand on the edge of the gopher hole and push into the last pose, but it became really flat and looked pretty weak.

Thanks for the crit!

Yes, I mean the hand move.
Sorry for being unclear :)
