Much better than what I first saw in the WIP forums, the walking on the fat guy still looks a little too robotic.

Bradley Adams:

needs more work on the walk but nice animation anyway

Nicolás Burmester:

Great concept! If you are going to do this kind of animation where your "actors" don't have a easy way to express themselves you need to rely a lot more on the body mechanics and the performance. Take a look at this https://youtu.be/PYzeqTFsXXY?t=25s

Mohan Kumar:

last dialog lip sync is very good, it will be even better if the same lip sync is followed from starting.

David Barrow:

A bit mechanical. Apply some anticipation and ease in and outs.

William Barry Eggington:

Awkward motion .
