I feel like the animation was a little "floaty", as if you had some key poses but no real holds or other poses in between. The lip sync could also use some work as well as his expression: he doesn't seem to be emitting much emotion in my opinion. The animation is not inherently bad, it just doesn't feel finished.

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.

"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 vanilla. Lip sync needs work. Also needs more overlap... moving holds, etc. I like the idea.


Good attempt! Keep working on your animation

Colin Davey:

Needs more body and head movement. Each motion feels detached from the whole. The head and hands move from one space to the next and then just float there.
