Smile Looking for critique - v.short character animation

Hi,

This is just a short character animation. I'd love to hear what you liked about it and what you think can be improved.

vimeo.com/57003434

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.



p.s. Is there a way I can embed the video, or is it only direct links on this forum?

Perhaps you should re-post on youtube? I figure you know, but the link doesn't seem to work. You can refresh the link or try another site. And it's only a WIP right, I don't think it will matter that much for this particular post.

I'd be glad to take a look. Just wanted to reply just to show there are people interested in your project.

@Darced just delete the https:// out of the link

@RustyMuldoon. The animation is looking good! Something you could try and improve is the neck looks broken especially in the 2nd half of the shot.

Ok. Thanks. Try it now.

I wanted to exaggerate his head swinging round, which probably explains the neck. I'll play about with it and see if I can make it more natural. Thanks for your feedback.

Ok so I took a look (Sorry for being dumb :P) Anyway, I took a peek and the animation is real nice. I'm only a novice animator, but I feel like you could exaggerate the head on some poses. When the toon's head head moves back and forward I don't see a lot of recoil. Also I think you can enhance the torso. When he twists forward in the end it looks like it's only rotated on the X-axis. I think there are a few little issues with keys that can be addressed pretty quickly. It's a strong action though.

Like I said I haven't been at this all that long so maybe I'm wrong. Just some possible things to work on. Good luck!
