I like the character and setup. I wish I could see around that big mug though because it's blocking his performance. The glasses (and the rig controllers) are making it difficult for me to see his eyes. The body mechanics needs work on timing/spacing, although it looks like you have a good start. I like your idea of using a globe as the sphere.

Brent Forrest:

Well the visible rig is a distraction and his elbows go a bit wacky with IK. Overall pretty floaty but a good attempt. 5/10

Vin Liew:

Not polished,need some strong key poses and hold them.

Sandra Tapia:

I like the concept and nice lip sync.

Joyce Makker:

Next time you playblast, turn off the controls. I think you need to go back to the basics, before animating a full scene.

David Krein:

I wonder where he's looking? Somehow I feel like I know exactly :D Had to watch a few times to get motions because they eye controllers just kept distracting me. Otherwise decent however could really use some subtlety in the hand motions and a look at some of the pose landings.
