Adam Sirrelle:

You've got some really nice, strong poses, it's just the lip sync that throws it off for me. The jaw in particular is incredibly fast and snappy. It makes it seem too much like a puppet talking.
I'd advise recording yourself miming the lines and using that as reference.

The thing with the jaw is that it hardly ever fully closes, most of that work is done by your lips. This can be quite a hard thing to get your head around. Outloud, say 'Mime' with a strong 'M'. Notice how your teeth never touch.

Andy Cheung:

Liking the eye animation but the body seems a little busy while the character is saying 'tell him!' Mouth feels a little over animated too, sticky IK hands need work. The last part saying óf course i am feels good tho'. So really just the middle part could use tweaking.

William Ramos:

Great gestures, its just a little hard to make out the mouth phrasing especially on "Settle Down". I think maybe because it carries the lazy "S" shape right after it, through the words.

J.K. Riki:

It's nicely animated, it just loses something because the model doesn't fit the voice. If you tweaked a few of the proportions and made it a bit more female I think it might have worked better. The movement is well crafted, though. Good luck with future entries!

Jez:

I'd bet you get a lot of comments about her picking up that photo. A clever idea animating just a hand of Voice 2 but it is hard to animate hands well.
