Good Attitude Animation Test

This is an animation test using some audio I found on animationmeat.com. I've animated this clip before in 2D, but I thought it might be more fun to give the dialogue a shot in 3D four years later. For this clip, Blender and the Eleven rig were used for the animation and video reference was used. Please let me know how you think I can improve.

Re: Good Attitude Animation Test

Not a bad start, but you're getting some unfortunate deformity in the rig around the jaw area - it becomes very clear when you're pushing the rig past its limits because it's not just the chin stretching, it's the whole jaw almost popping out of its constraints. I'm thinking you were going for a smear effect, but you need to either keep them on screen a lot shorter or tone down the deformation a little - probably a mix of both would be good.
Aside from that, the eyes are very static, the pupils don't move at all and their direction makes him look a little unfocused. Keep at it! smile

Using the suggestions I've gotten from here and Reddit, I've made some adjustments to the animation. I've removed the stretching of the jaw and skull and changed the direction of the eyes. The eyes have also been given movement so that they move before any head movement and they also move a little bit at random times just so that they don't look dead. I've added more follow through in the arms and brought up the eyelid only at the end.

Thanks for the tips! I'll be sure to include the things that I'm learning through this critique in my next projects.

Re: Good Attitude Animation Test

I've added this animation to SyncSketch so that I can receive critiques on specific things in the animation.
