Clara Myers:

Cool character design. One comment I'd have is the hug comes in too fast. Let the audience anticipate the movement sooner

Jasmine Keith:

Your characters are very nice and you're pretty good at turning them in space but things seem to be a bit jumpy. I think your problem is that you need to almost ignore the facial expressions at first (though you can still plan them) and think more about the body motions. If done right, you can actually sell a lot more of the emotion and action with the body language than the facial expressions. I think you just switched the priority (easy trap to fall into). That being said, your faces are pretty expressive. Keep going!
