Robert Zhou:

Great interpretation. I would prefer if your animation style were less jerky though. The movements are very sudden with no anticipation or follow through. At 140, I would also prefer you don't put your other character in the shadow. Keep working at it!

Nikolas Diamant:

Backwards s on the Superman symbol

Bruno de Coninck:

Ok, I think you should read Richard Williams' book Animator's Survival Kit : Your missing a few animation principles : moving hold particulary. You should also read about pose to pose animation. I think it could improve your work a lot.

Nathan Greensmith:

I appreciate Batman, but the animation needs quite a bit of refinement and the lip sync needs a lot of work with more mouth shapes, but good effort.

Kyra Toomey:

The second guy watch where's he's staring; he's not looking at anything, not blinking, he has dead eyes. Second, his neck is broken, twice. At the beginning of his pose and then when he splines into the next one. Try doing that in the mirror. If you can't do something neither can your character. Lip sync has much to be desired. Again, have a mirror and copy what you do onto your character. Good luck.

Samidha Kumar:

Keep Practicing :)
