Just a tip, but if you're using blender, go to the characters materials and turn down "Specular." It will make him look less lubed up.

Alex Ang:

When the character pushes the boulder drop the left shoulder and twist the hand placement so the arm is arcing around the head, it's much better staging and could stop the weird angle of the head and neck.

Yonghwan Seok:

Timing could've been better

Richard Adams:

Love the concept. However, the slow, depressed-seeming movements don't really match the tense, energetic music. Having an eager, energetic guy would've worked better.

Ryan Woods:

good keys and posing gets the story across, to get more character out of performance, keep all poses but mess with timing / ease in/out and dont be afraid to speed up some actions, as long as posing keys are strong the audince will read it no problem.

Adrian Petitjean:

Weight problems everywhere. Take some references. The timing is off. Go back to the fundementals

Victor Lemée:

Lack some weight, camera angle are a bit off. Take some reference and watch your arcs

Gabriel Mira de Assumpção Peixoto:

The movement is ok, but could use some adjustment on the speeds.
