Isadora Morales Chaves:

Be careful with the eyes, they are moving a bit too much.

Guillaume Gimbert:

It's cool to add squash but go easy on the head^^

Frank Geadah:

Whats wrong with his head? To much squash and stretch on it!


I think you used squash and stretch on the head a little too much.

Tyler Gogan:

Too much squash and stretch on head

Robert Firestone:

Way too much squash and stretch on his head.

Francisco J Ramirez:

the squash and stretch is very distracting. other than that it's nice animation

Alex Mlqd:

careful to your stretch and squach on the head :)

William Harrison:

The body animation is more realistic so the squash and stretch is not very believable on the head. Tone down the squash and stretch and the shot will be much more appealing.

Imon Branch:

the camera is not focus

Ruud Harbers:

What's with the head deformations? (For example f24-f27) It's not needed and it's distracting in my opinion.
