nice animation

Isadora Morales Chaves:

Nice, natural acting. Sweet.


Fantastic job m8! Glad you kept it simple!

Holly Johnson:

The movement for "we're gonna kill you" is spot on

Fernando Incetta:

Awesome. Lots of character, really expressive. Great job.

Mike Schanbacher:

Nice work!

Iqtidar Ali Siddiqui:

good work !

Jason Wellings:

Really nice work. Definitely top ten. All of the subtle weight shifting and movement of the feet is done very well. I wish you'd at least added a second character for him to talk to but his animation is very good.

He freezes up a little too much on "play dead" and I would have liked to see something a little more interesting for the "gonna kill you" and "dead" poses, but the animation itself is technically very good. Definitely looks like you used some good video reference.

Great work :)

Michael McKnight:

Animation and lip syncing is very well done. Only problem is that based on the movements, it was clearly intended to have two characters in the same scene, when there's only one here.

Daniel Calvert:

Good job on the sync movements! It can be tough getting it just right. The animation it self is very smooth. I also like the facial expressions he makes. Keep up the good work!

Anaïs Mirliaz:

I think the beginning and the end look pretty natural ! The part where he mimes what the other's do look a bit weaker to me, probably because the beginning was really, really good !

Jessica "Jess" Jerome:

really nice

Imon Branch:

background need a little work

William Harrison:

Finespline crew!!! Great work Ben if only there was time to render and get it looking all nice and shiny like last times challenge; but awesome animation rendered or unrendered.
