30 hours of work for 3 second loop (animated illustration? .-.), but looks pretty good :)
Guys, tell me, if you like it or not, or what to improve.

Maybe I'll use her for something longer...or just in demo reel...


Functions well as a loop

Its really smooth and the blur effect is interesting on a short loop such as this, but i would think when doing an actual project and incorporating something such as this you should definitely rely less on the blur effect as i feel it would detract from any action scenes you might have. Perhaps reserve the effect for particularly quick and powerful motions such as the kick? Otherwise a talented product for 30 hours of work.

Knife training crit.

So much motion blur hard to see the animation. Seems floaty character in the air for ages for the kick. her left arm seems to get huge for a few frames attempt at foreshortening?

youve done an amazing job

this drawing style is simillar to the disney style which is amazing since you did this in 30 hours even if its only 3 seconds because of the complexity of the character and how fluently the character moves

Like a Disney princess...

Who's extremely fuckable!

From an Animator

Hey this is a good test it looks like you got the basic motions and keys but you need to work on the tempo. You need to add some holds and work on the overlapping action. Not so much on the motions of the cloth and her chest but on her movements. Good for a test. Also be careful on the use of the blurs, try to animate the action of the blurs and don't rely on the special effects.
