Animator: Sami Ling

Description: The tone of voice makes me think of a stern impatient person speaking down to somebody, that was the main thing i was trying to get across in the characters body language and facial animation.

Experience: Graduate

Time taken: A week (on and off)

Vanessa Gonzalez:

From frames 1-150 his movements seem to big and drastic to fit well with the audio. The voice sounds low and calm and the character is waving his arms too angrily, and if you were to tone that down it would fit better. Frames 150-199 look like they are flowing better with the voice.

Ryan D Lowe:

Hi there.
When I was first starting out, no one ever
took the time to say anything on my shots.

I can't give you constructive feedback here,
as your work seems to lack an overall
understanding of the principles of animation.

However, I emplore you to seek out these
books, and began your studies.

"Character Animation Crash Course"-Eric Goldberg
"Acting for Animators"- Revised Edition
"How to Cheat in Maya 2012/2014"-Lutha Roy

There are many more, but these will get you
started. Best of luck on your journey!

Mike M.:

The exaggerated gestures towards the end don't work.

Aaron Clement:

Silhouette is good. A bit pose to pose and linear. Energy is good.

Amartya Mukherji:

There is a lot of scope for improvement. Try to figure out the timing after you visualize the acting you want to do, then start animating a shot. Shooting your own video reference would help you a lot.

Liviu Boar:

Lip sync doesn't match

Robert Holmen:

The hand gestures don't make sense

Ana Callegari:

Im new in Animation, but one of the things my teacher used to say to me is that we should avoid the twinning with the hands, we tend to move them at the same time, but with animation we have to play with the ease-in and ease-out. And we dont have to emphasize every sentence with a movement. It makes the animation less interesting... hope this advice help you!

Emily Rose Gerich:

Hand animation is so important! When doing your keys, always include the hand poses.

Babul Prasad:

Its looking staged, need a lot improvement
