John M:

Love it.

Donald Marks:

This is pretty solid. The feet feel a little glued to the ground. Messing with the foot-roll controls will help here, and make the steps more fluid overall. The arm pump on "Kicking in to save you" feels a bit forced. Loved the idea, pretty polished, nice work!

Jamie F:

Nice! Missed the lip sync on 'you did' which was a shame.

Hadas Rosen:

Ooohh!! The attitude of the characters are really coming through! Bravo on that! The squash and stretch is also working :) I rarely see LWS characters look so good haha


Love it! Nicely done :) I think a three quarter camera angle on the last shot would look better though.

talha bin khalid:

V nice, nice idea also, quality animation

Elisabeth Janerka:

Super nice!
On a very subjektive note, I don't feel that the green characters fits the voice.


Great animation! Render turned out really good also!

Gokul Dev:

nice *

Razam Ali:

Animation is nice but lipsync is off

Sean McDermott:

Insane. Totally insane. This is so so so good. I love the Longwinter rigs. You really brought them to life. The ogre's poses are well timed and fit the dialogue really nicely. I love the follow through on the pony tail the most about him. As for the kid, everything about him works well. The eyebrows, hands, and mouth are my favorite pieces for how well they move with the dialogue. Your scene is also set up really nicely. I love that the background is blurred so it wouldn't distract from everything else. Animation-wise, I have trouble finding something to critique. The only thing I noticed is that the ogre has a little bit of an over-bite when he speaks, but that could be completely intentional because it sill works well. Superb piece.

Alvindra Surya Wardana:

Haha love it

Felicia Martin:

Nice job on this animation! The initial walk of the ogre is solid and the jump looks fantastic. I love the small bounce of the character as he lands on the ground from the jump as well as the follow through of his hair. These two motions combined create a sense of weight for your character. I recommend bending at least one of the fingers more when the ogre says created me. Right now, his hands feel very symmetrical and the fingers are in line with each other, so I think adding a little bend in a few fingers would add more texture and realism to this pose/action. I like how Dean's hands come down from his head at different times. This gives a very natural feel to his actions. The very last word ("mind") feels like it gets cutoff at the end, so I suggest extending the scene for a few frames longer to make sure there is a clean cut. Great work!
