That tips and tricks article is great. The thing that sucks is that I've been "learning" animation for the past 10 years now, the first 6 years were all self taught before I started at the academy. That was reading books and basically learning stuff on my own. Nothing on character animation. It was like I had a whole new track to learn when I started here. So, at a stupid ass time, I think in some ways my batteries are wanting to run low when I need them to be going right now. But it was still a great article.

The animation however, it felt floaty and slow to me. And the girl just seems to stand still at friat. Is this final? On top of that, I felt ripped off, (no, I don't think the animator directly ripped me off), but I had a similar idea for Mohammed's class last year. Which, had I not taken, I might have some more work under my belt at the moment.

Some of it is a bit floaty, yes, but it's a fully finished short. More than what most people have to offer.
