Jiarui Zhang:

The animation is good, but it doesn’t seem to match her tone

Amir Graydon Al-Khafaji:

I like the body movements a lot, but face needs more exaggeration. Her face movements do not hold the same intensity as the audio. Also at times the lip sync feels off and loses some syllables but over all good job.

Allison Cheng:

I like how your animation looks very smooth and realistic. Personally, I would suggest exaggerating her poses and emotions a bit to improve how it fits with the audio. Amazing job!


I really like your scene dressing and background! It really nailed the story you were looking for - I would however suggest spending a bit more time on the expressiveness of your character, they are mostly stiff and unreactive, even though the audio implies a lot of emotion. Great start though!
