Don't forget that your animation has to fill 10-12 seconds to qualify.

On a side note I think that your animation really is good. I really see gorilla characteristics in your animation.

Yea, I donīt forget abt the time, and about the note on a side, thank you :)

Good start there!

There are two main things that I think need to be worked out right away in your blocking:

First, I was checking some videos, and a gorilla normally has its spine bent backwards, not forwards like your character. Of course, it's also due to the fact that his arms are longer than his legs, which is not the case on your rig, but still you can manage to get it more likely.

Second, pay attention to the movement on the hips, cause it's where you'll get most of the animal's weight. Working on the ups and downs we'll make it a lot less floaty.

Here's a little reference video that I found, so you can see what I'm talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHi3xYS3cOs&feature=related

Keep going!

thank you Anubis for the feedback, .. you know? I was looking for videos also..and in some of them, the gorillas were walking like in mine... and like I didnt want to do it exactly like Splinter (I saw him video after post this..) but it look weird as I did, so Iīm gonna check the video you sent, and check the things.
