I kept thinking during the paper flying in the air that it reminded me so much of the tutorial in FX course and was wondering if this was one of the animators in it. Splendid work and I just liked pointing out every bit of each lesson.
First of, the splash was superb and had that nice fluent, transparent hue that was well done. Of course the flying paper was very dynamic and kept a good floating factor as it moved across the sky. The waving action as it was caught on the branch was well done as well. You kept the paper perfectly at the same length and proportion, though I felt like the back side of it moved a bit, but that's me nitpicking for examining the overall effect.
The composition was nice with the lighting and stuff. I really liked how you had him sort of disturb the lighting coming through the tress. It bent perfectly, but maybe there could of been some kind of shadow that I know would of been brief, but once again nitpicking.
Overall the lighting, animation and effects were stunning. Very good work and truly can tell that you put a lot of work into this project and can't wait to see what more the effects course can do for you.
