Critique - Bouncing Balls w/character (Joey)

Bounce it to big one:

- 99% done :-) One thing that sticks out is the balls x curve after frame 52. The moment he stops bouncing he slows down too much. It's only the transition from 51 to 53. Your curve must suddenly flatten out. The amount of space it travels until around frame 87 is good.

Heavy Ball:


Character Ball:

- Cool! You got great timing and squash & stretch, nice! Now all you have to find is a good ending to this clip. Right now, the ball has character, which is great, but once the ball gets on top, it just ends. Try to push it! Push it beyond a ball that's trying it's hardest to get up there. Maybe once it's up there, the big block opens his eye and looks up surprised, or angrily.

Btw. My wife just came in and thought it was really good, that it had a lot of character to it. Nice!

And yes, drawing on LCD monitors is fine. I've been doing it for 3 years now at home and at work, and so far I haven't had any problems.

Nice, you're done with your bouncing balls, concentrate on your character assignment. Add a tail, that could be fun!
