Michael Whitley:

very creative!


nice idea!..

Gaucelm De Villaret:

Original idea and funny interpretation, Although can't help but think this is a bit of a cheap way to go without doing expressions.

Jabir Dz:

Different thought.. but . . Lack of fundamentals


Good idea. But still it needs more improvement.

Marcella D.:

Why is everyone doing the puppet approach of telling a story?


Funny idea, the main character facial animation could be exaggerated a lot more.

Hajar Khakrand:

nice idea

Connor Leuck:

I like that you tried to do the linguistic mouth whispering. I'd keep the right arm on fk though.

Fernando Incetta:

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

Monica Stringer:

okay, an actual logical reason to be talking to a puppet is established, so thank you.
the side talking is very well timed, though there could be some tightening up when the 'daughter' talks
