Make me believe your characters ar real.
as an animation student I can see that alot of work has gone into this. But as far as the movement is concerned "the key points of animation" its not fluid enough to land you a good job as an animator. as an illustrator you kick ass, but your movement seems to be the same way in alot of your scenes... start off, and then ending in the last pose without any indication of slowing down. They just STOP suddenly. I did enjoy your showreel and you've got some skill up your sleeve, I'd like to see more but there is definitly room for improvement.
whether you've seen it or not, give the movie "The Iron Giant" a watch. Brad Bird knows how to animate like a god in man shoes. theres some good inspiriational scenes in there for an animator.
thanks for the detailed response! I'll try to work on the continuous fluidity of my characters for next time (eh, not really sure the real term for it, haha).
That was the shit, wow. :D
The animation in this... wow. Just wow. I'm keepin' my eye on you, and looking forward to more.
Very Well Done
This was a fine example of flash use. I dont get why people would even give you a score less than 10 (maybe 9 for honesty) but there isnt suppose to be a plot, or character design, or anything else, its just your best cutscenes and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Keep at it, and hopefully you can piece together a real story with the rough ideas you have in your head :)
Great body work.
For your body work, did you just do the pose maniacs 30 second drawings every day like it said? Or is there more to it than just that?
iiiii used toooo
not so much any more
you've also got to be willing to teach yourself new things, and change when things don't work out
