Hey Brandon,
That character looks so fun to work with btw...lol anyways....
Love the animation test!
I think my main comment is it's sometimes difficult to see the characters eye direction... Oh, golly now I forget what they were saying during the part I noticed it at... It was mostly when the screen left yellow guy pounded the table I think? That's really the only minor minor note I have.
I love acting choice there at the end before sits down...
Feels like I'm learning just from watching this!
Anyways, super work as always! :D

Awesome work man!! Love ur acting choices!! 1 thing that sticks out to me is when he says " Pound for pound". The hand hitting the table feels like it should be hitting earlier. could be me. Keep up the awesome work!!

Brilliant work Brandon, I really like it. I frame by framed it and love the smear frame you have when the yellow guy slams his hand down. You cant see the distortion at all but you really feel the hit because of it....cool. My only comment is that maybe you could push the pose of the blue guy a bit more when he's listening to the yellow fella ranting. You have some nice "You're talking rubbish mate" disagreeing head shakes there but I dont think the actual posture sells his attitude enough for me.

Dude! awesome! I love it. I love the way your pushing the graphic look and feel of the poses and moves.

I do feel like there could be more stuff done with the yellow guys hands. there is that beat on "your" before Silvester Stallone that i think could use a point of judgment. Like a you're responsible for him point.

Awesome clip though dude! keep it up!

I would just do it differently... the whole thing... every frame. Get to that immediately, please. Not really, though. This is great, Brandon. You're the man. It's too bad the sound of hitting the table on "pound for pound" isn't louder, because it would help to keep his energy level up if he could pound harder on the table at that point. Also, when he stands up suddenly, I'd have the other guy react just a little by pulling back or something. I don't know much, though, so I'd ignore everything I said if I were you... that's what I'd do.

This is really great, I love the drop back onto the chair :)

I've seen these models around a couple of times, can I download them from somewhere?

Thanks so much for the comments! Sandra I am so glad you like this character! It's one that I designed and made, it's not available for public download. I hope you understand. Thanks.

Love it Brandon. Especially like the ending as he falls into the chair. Very nice!

nice deformation on the hand and arm. I also like the subtle rotation and de-rotation when he lifts his fist to the air.
