Hi all.
This is my latest show reel. I have done all the animation (and more on some shots) and then there is some character design at the end. Hope you like it. (

Hi JonasK,

Designs plenty of imagination. Love how you solve the hair in the characters and all the other stuff.
Good work.

Hey Jonas!
What an awsome reel!
Gotto say I loved those bacterials for Verum.
You are amazing!

Good stuff.

Suggestion: Take out the walk cycle at the end, it's your weakest shot. You wanna end your reel with a strong scene because more often than not, that's what sticks in people's mind.

Render those guitar-robots, playblast looks good but since the rest of your reel is all rendered shots, it looks out of place.

The character with the football is nicely done, i would suggest adding more contrast in timing and more force to his kicks.

amazing job. the pirate is my favourite part in it, great character. i also enjoyed the concepts and drawings at the end, gives a nice insight in your overall talent.
