So far, I *really* like it. Love the concept! Poses look great so far. The blocking is still in really rough, early stages, so it's hard to say much, yet. It's kind of like critiquing a figure drawing when there's still only 2 lines drawn.

Thought maybe Malcolm might be stretching his left hand out a little late, on "code name" about 3 seconds in. Move that a few frames earlier maybe? Extreme on "pose". On second thought, looking at it over and over, it's perfect the way it is so far.

Not seeing anything else yet that feels off. You're doing great so far! Can't wait to see how this progresses! Already looks like it's going to be one of the better entries this month.

Curious where did you get the critter rig from? He is really appealing! *want*. lol.

Thank you for your kind words!!

I actually bought the Foxy Scout rig from Kiel Figgins, he makes fantastic rigs. Including a free Deadpool one! I highly recommend his rigs!

LloydHallam:

Thank you much for the source! Been looking at Kiel Figgins' site and you're right. He's got lots of really appealing rigs. I've put Foxy Scout on my "to buy" list, next to Joel3D's Kayla.

Can't wait to see your WIP 2. smile

Good stuff mate. The only thing I don't like is the acting choice on "he's got a code name". How he point's at the listener (on second 3) after pointing at the creature. Maybe if you rotated the arm a bit more towards the character's right to make it look more like a "he's got a codename. what the heck!" gesture, would look better. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for all your kind words and feedback. I'd like to keep you all posted weekly, so while there's a ton more that's needed before I'd be satisfied to show a new WIP, here's my second one regardless.

Hi guys! Third work in progress, it's starting to look how I want it too now!

Gonna work on the secondary animation and push some of the poses a little further before I start on lip sync. Any other feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: June 2017 WIP - It's cool to have a code name!

here is a few notes i can provide.

when he lifts the fox, the shoulder falls with even spacing, this is the opposite of what should happen. when he lifts the fox the shoulder should raise, and stay raised through out the entire motion, until he throws him.

lessen the shoulder jump after code name, that should be way more subtle and the main motion of the sound should be with the head.

on hes got a code name tha body moves very quickly but the neck and head stays frozen, you should have some follow through and overlapping action here, have the head overlap when the upper bod comes to a stop.

after code name and the sound his entire body and head is frozen, no movement at all, keep him alive, even with a slight shift - also the hand is dropping down very evenly and slowly, no real human lowers a hand like this.... it's actually taken effort to lower it like that, he would just relax his hand far quicker.

on 10 seconds when he says it's cool to have a code name, he looks angry, he should not look angry with the shot you have done, work with the facial expression and eye brows so his demeanor reads better

good luck
