Michael Whitley:

This is amazing, but due to the track suit, you're hiding all the body and trunk movements. You focus so much on facial expression, but no leg movements. You're cutting out so many dynamics.

Sabrina Winkel:

Funny with the talking baby!!!

GokulNath Gajapathy:

arm poses looks symmetry ....like your cloth simulation ...really cool stuff

Craig Portnoy:

the cloth sim looks nice......


Nice cloth simulation


Nice rendered. But the movements in the end are almost the same on both hands, and it repeated 2 times. Unecessary movement, but still an beautiful render

Craig Joseph Massa:

Woah! Awesome! Such attention to detail!

Ramon Arango:

feels really alive and human; the way she looks around. I think there is a bit too much twinning going on with the hands. I would have made her interact with the babycart-thingy to lean on or whatever. Props are a great help to help you find something to do with the hands. right now she feels a bit disconnected from the environment. at 70 I think its a bit of an over the top reaction compared to the reather realistic behaviour afterwards

John Michael Wilyat:

Someone likes dynamics.

Connor Leuck:

I had to frame by frame this to find something to say animation-wise. This is freaking amazing by the way. The fingers and wrist on her left arm don't move in her initial movement. Maybe some drag.

Marcella D.:

I can see this animation on tv. One of the best 3D animation I have seen so far.

Jose Virgil:

impressive render. the action in the animation is a bit confusing. great mechanics.

Lechard P:

This render is blowing my mind right now


fabric simulation doesn't feel right here.


Woah N-Cloth!

Jordan Lewers:

A lot of care was put into this piece, clearly! The scene feels very natural, from the rendering to the animation. The cloth is great overall, though I notice moments where it seems a bit too baggy, specifically frames 74-86. The milk bottle's physics is throwing me off a little as well.

As for camera angles, I would've liked to have seen the mother's reaction to the baby a bit earlier. We first see her only in mid-arm swing; I'd love to have seen her surprise to the question beforehand. I would also suggest switching to a different camera angle for the baby so she isn't facing the viewer directly, like with frames 3 and 31. In spite of all that, I could easily see this in a film! The performances are incredibly nuanced

Nassim Briedj:

waw nice render

Fernando Incetta:

Good job! Great body language and hand gestures. The baby lacks work in comparison, try to make his facial expressions more assymetrical. Congratulations

Iqtidar Ali Siddiqui:

hhmmm amazing in top 3 may be !

Jessica "Jess" Jerome:

render is really nice

Chad Cox:

wow. fluid sim in the bottle AND cloth sim on the mom. touche' my friend, touche'.


Awesome Cloth Sim :) Good animation.

Ariyanto Zulkifli:

Top 5 for me.. very nice and smooth animation there. the performance is awesome. Keep it up. :D

Joaquin Casas:

The same hands movement 3 times =S The rest is awesome.
