Hello there. Hope that my advice can be of help.
Some of their animations are stiff. One pose around 135, for example, showcasing some overlap in the arms would help the torch jabbing down connect, rather than simply contact to contact.
In addition, I find the boy uninteresting. He has very limited motions and I don't understand his facial expressions. He looks completely disinterested in the shot featuring "Who are you?" Why would he ask that if he had no care? He also lacks any reaction to the teacher's strip.
Overall, I enjoyed watching this. Keep up the work.


Nice I love the idea. good stuff.


A great work dannykneip ...imao you do better in 2d than 3d .....At the beginning would be nice the cloths move on the Master (too still) also after doing all moves & poses you could go to more details. Hair this shape you did on both character just asking for follow through & overlapping actions ...cheers
Ps. I only can assume you know that but you have no time for it .

Run, boy, run!

Finally a gag that worked! Props for making me laugh!


This is great! I I love the character designs and your idea for setting. I like your facial expressions and the sand secondary animation.
