Hi there!!
This is my last animation before to start Animation mentor...
It's an acting and is a little bit boring but I need to practise acting and polishing...I have a many problems because I don't see anything more for touch!
All kind of feedback are welcome!

That;s not bad.

At animation mentor they'd probably warn you off the pointing stuff.

But I'm noticing a lot of sitting down characters in dialog tests lately, which doesn't really test body mechanics much.

At AnimationMentor they'll take you thru body mechanics, starting with bouncing ball. Pay attention to all of it and try to get each one perfect!

He blinks too late between "Educated guess" and "My money."

He needs to blink before he begins the next sentence. His brain has switched gears slightly, and his eyes blink before speaking.

After that, I'm not sure he needs to blink anymore. His head doesn't move too much and he's speaking a complete thought. You can always have the eyes half lidded etc. but an actual blink is unnecessary.

His eyes dart from his hand, to camera, to hand, to camera. I think it's too much.

Your eyebrows flicker too much. In general I think your eyes need fewer poses, but they need to be stronger poses.

For the actual lip sync, I think the "M" shape for "My" is too exaggerated (making the jaw movement really fast when it goes wide.) Other then that, it's actually pretty tight.

I like the changes you made, but you obscured the face :(

You need to make sure your hand gestures (if you insist on using them) don't get in the way of the face. We watch the eyes of an actor when they speak, and his hand covers them right when he's explaining something important.

Lower the hand gesture and keep it away from his face. It only needs to be a little fursther down to not obscure the face.

The eyebrows are much better and simpler - good job!

One more thing: your new pose has a problem. The foot needs to be in a better spot so that it doesn't overlap the leg (shape wise). It needs to be further away so it makes a nice silhouette.

I know it's not animation, but you don't want anything to distract form the eyes and mouth!

I think the thing that bothers me is the way the right arm is moving with a life of its own rather than as part of his body. His torso and shoulder aren't really leading the motion.

It's a small thing, it would have to be small since he's leaning on that wall, but once i noticed it bothered me.
