Hey ! You really need to block your poses. Give a rythm to your animation and stay more hold on the IMPORTANT poses, who let us understand your story and feel the intention of the caracters.
The movement is too linear from key to key.
Ryan D Lowe:
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!
James Van Dam:
Get reference footage for what you want to do before animating. Also block in on two's or five's to get the timing down right, then spline. This entire animation feels floaty and blocky all at the same time.
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.
lip sync's off...
A bit linear. Staging is good.
register your key pose..........continusely it was moving.
