  • Very entertaining Animation and good choice of character. Really impressed with the research and documentation. You've brought the character to life with solid actions. Would be nice to see more life in the idles such as subtle alert actions which would sell the performance even more. Really nicely presented and love the overlap on the ears!

  • A shame that a video of the final animations weren't included in the submitted project, but luckily I managed to find them on youtube.

    This is a really great project, the documentation is thorough, the animation is fairly polished, and the presentation is clean, so really good job on that.

    As you highlighted in your documentation, it's somewhat clear you're more focused on CG animation rather than game. Whilst the overall piece shows promising animation skills, the jumping shooting animations work as more of a cinematic sequence than as responsive game play animations.  

    The idle works really well and shows a good amount of character, though I would recommend lightening the amount of  bounce on the ears after returning to his idle state though, it's nice overlapping animation but it's a bit too distracting. Find that balance between artistic license and realism.

    Overall this is a great effort, it's a shame that the jump and attack animations move away from being suitable for a game, but it is still nice animation none the less. Well done!
