William Barry Eggington:

I really like the way you composed this shot.

Ian Alexander Hanson:

I like the overall angle and setup.

Body could use more "working together" in both characters, watch for fast and slow, watch arcs. Also camera is too far away from the main character to really take interest or follow him.


Love the settle on the robot arm. The boy's head movements feel over exaggerated though and could be toned down a bit. The poses read well on the boy though the transitions from pose to pose could be more defined, right now they feel floaty, a few second moving hold would help with that. The Doc character's facial animations are great. His poses work well too, and could also have their transitions smoothed out. I would also tone down his head movements a bit too, otherwise, good job!
