New dialogue shot

Hi guys!
Started a new dialogue shot and I would love some feedback.

Did a bit more work on this shot

great blocking so far!

Two things that stand out to me:

- there isn't any variation in the shape of his eyes. like he's always squinting or eyes half closed. Even on the "T" for twitter when his brows go up, his eyelids do not (which they don't have to but that could be a potential place).

- overall his arm poses seem too over the top or over acting. Especially the last two poses, two much going on too fast it just seems awkward and not natural at all. Unless of course when you smooth it out, it could all come together. At this stage it just looks too all over the place all the time for such a short piece of animation.

- Ok sorry a third thing :P Just his lip sync at "all the time" doesn't seem like it's hitting the words, perhaps it's late? maybe try selecting those mouth keys and dragging them back 2-3 frames to see if that works.

Great stuff so far! It'll be sweet once you're done.

Hi Yasha,

That last clip-- needs more lip closure on tele"V"ision in a "M"onth. ALso when he says "brown" if you swiveled his head where his chin started into an arc and his forehead delayed into the settled head pose I think it would add to something. (Just a thought)

All the best,

Once again all C&C's are welcome
