Good job, congrats ! The creativity here really stands out.
On the logical side, why does he look at himself in the mirror if he can't reflect ;)

Sujit K:

Very nice concept with a proper secondary actions. Best of luck.


This visually looks really good! The characters have some really good body language going on, and I love the detail of not being able to see the character in the mirror. The cartoon-y feel is really nice-- I sure do love me some squash and stretch in my animations!

I think some things you can improve on is the actual lip syncing itself; watching the lips move with the audio, it almost seems like the lips feel a little bit behind. Aaron Blaise has a video that basically explains that when lip syncing, the character's lip movements should be a few frames BEFORE the audio. It's reaaaaally hard to explain in just text, so I would recommend looking up that video! Another thing I think you could work on is the impact of your character's movements, if that makes any sense? I feel like when the character is looking back and forth for the guy who climbed up the ceiling, he seems super excited, like he's looking for a cute puppy instead of wondering where the hell his friend went. I also feel like when the guy pops down from the ceiling, the other guy could be squashed and stretched a liiiiittle bit more? That could just be me nitpicking though. Overall its pretty good, keep up the good work!

Kevan Balmer:

Frames 73-74 I think the knee pops. Dragon Belt seems out of sync. i love how you took away the reflection of the vampire but left his clothing. Nice fluid movements and acting!
