Per Cardell:

Keep on animating. This is a good start!

Ryan D Lowe:

Hi there.
When I was first starting out, no one ever
took the time to say anything on my shots.

I can't give you constructive feedback here,
as your work seems to lack an overall
understanding of the principles of animation.

However, I emplore you to seek out these
books, and began your studies.

"Character Animation Crash Course"-Eric Goldberg
"Acting for Animators"- Revised Edition
"How to Cheat in Maya 2012/2014"-Lutha Roy

There are many more, but these will get you
started. Best of luck on your journey!

Aaron Clement:

A bit linear and robotic. Like the staging and the ending.

Amartya Mukherji:

There is a lot of scope for improvement. Try to figure out the timing after you visualize the acting you want to do, then start animating a shot. Shooting your own video reference would help you a lot.

Richard Clark:

Sorry, but this is in poor taste.

Danny Kneip:

The lip sync is in dire need of additional polishing as some mouth shapes don't work, and the jaw is overworked. The concept is interesting, but extremely phallic in it's entirety - perhaps that was the goal?
