Christian Cooper:

Really awesome rendering. The only thing that seemed off too me was the lip sync I felt like there could have been a few more mouth shapes other than that everything looked super awesome. Top 3 for sure.

Ian McCall:

I loooove it! A winner for me

Reg Isaac:

Lovely stuff, great sense of weight and design work. The only thing that lets this down is the Lip sync, If you was to go back into this I'd recommend exaggerating you 'o' mouth shapes like on the 'he wanted to know..' section. At the minute there doesn't seem to be any.

Ivan Mendoza:

Really nice. The lipsync is great except that the "o"s could be more narrow in order to feel like "o"s.

Really like your style and the animation itself is also pretty good.


This looks like it came straight out of an established animated TV show! Awesome job! Top 3 for sure :)
