Michael Whitley:

The beginning sequence seems unnatural to me. Also you should work on the proportions between the characters. (also the lip sync for the daughter) I really liked the closing portion from frame 126 on (movement wise)

Gaucelm De Villaret:

Feels very odd. It can have its charm, although the "mother" overacting like a Disney vilainess could be better used with a different imagery/context.


whats the message?

Karl Bernhardt:

lip sync is way off, and the facial expressions of the mother are also. The body movement is great though, I really like the detail you put into the body, it definitely pays off. i'd love to see this again if you add in expression and correct the lip sync

Steve Schwartz:

Wow, the mothers actions are way over the top compared to the audio. Tone it down, especially the hand movements.

Marcella D.:

Who puts alcohol in their cearl? Either way, this is not bad.


The animation itself isn't bad, but it feels very, very busy. There's just too many too big motions going on at once and it's not all that clear why the mother comes off as so menacing.

Fernando Incetta:

Good idea overall, try to rely less on the automated splines and work more on your pose-to-pose. Good luck.

Keely Imai:

The mom is sufficiently creepy to warrant the reaction from the girl... hahaha. Good job on conveying that!
