I would like some feedback on the art direction for my new short I'm working on "Magnetic Death." It is a 3d animation, and yes, it is cell shaded.

"Magnetic Death" Test

Thank you both for the kind words. I poured my heart and soul into this animation, and I'm glad at least a couple of people liked it.

looks nice so far, and I personally really like cell shading. The walk could use more fluidity though, as it looks very robotic right now. keep it up.

Thank you for the feedback, yea it is just a walk cycle, no emotion or personality right now but it is just a test. As long as you like the art style everythings cool

Alright well, since everyone's already given you an ego boost, I'll go ahead and be a dick ;o
It looks good, but it doesn't feel very.... dynamic.
The motion of the camera feels very linear and clunky, I don't know if it's what you're going for, but it feels kind of boring to me.

hahah. Thanks for the feedback dude, yea it's just a test, the first time I rendered out my character with the landscape. I just wanted to see how it looked overall, wasn't trying to be too dramatic with the camera movements.
