First suggestion: switch this movie category to Experimental, this will help you to get less "low scores" because Informative is actually fitted to tutorials and didactic videos more than showcases... we had the same problem on our Le Cronache [Pre-Alpha] trailer.

Overall yours is a good work but... about the models I would try to smooth them, too "squared" for my taste, and I may suggest you to work a bit more on the bones influence area (around knees and elbows will give also a wider/more natural bending radius)... then there's that glitch occurring to the girl's shirt texture, though I can't help you in that since we never used textures.

Hope this will help you through, and best of luck for your career in 3D CGi.

Deeply remembers those toons from my childhood, and I'm sure to remember Claw as a Pirate Captain from a 1999 platform game... very neat animations and nice story.

A good job, considering the deadlines too!

The machine remembers me from that cartoon, Ferngully...

HowardWimshurst responds:

Thanks dude! I never heard of Ferngully! Just looked it up and I can totally see what you mean haha. Interesting that lots of comparisons have also been made between Ferngully and James Cameron's Avatar. I was actually mostly inspired by a particular episode of Thunderbirds when it came to the machine. There was an early episode where this gigantic logging machine loses control and goes on a destructive path through Brazil. I always like my animations to be set in an interesting location, so I based it around that

This is a good 3D... up to the standards, indeed.

It's very luminous, and that gives a strong "cartoon" feeling, and the meshes are neat (though the kid is quite off proportion, and I don't really "understand" the figures marching towards the end) but the animations still feels a bit stiff: some movements ends too abruptly.

The water reflection effect at the beginning is a masterwork, but the sharp line between water and earth draw the attention... music is great.

Overall a nice work,

Thanks for the in-depth review :)

The figures marching scene is part of a dream/fantasy scenario that the boy has. It reflects the boy's imagination. The stiffness is on purpose :)

The water scene is inspired by a real pond especially the colors and the little leaves floating on top of it. I am glad that you like it.

You can listen more to her music but sadly she deleted her soundcloud.

Well, apart our own, doesn't happen to see much other 3D animations around here...

The spider seems quite detailed, but the background really take backward in CGI evolution, and my main concern is the "humanoid": both the model and its animations are completely off the level, not counting the camera movements... you'll need some major work to get up to the standards, but looks neat as a starting point.

Good luck,

Well, if this is your first (or second) official animation I feel you've a lot of potential.

Nice animation, though... colorful.

Nice animation.
It was funny... and it got a message inside too.

See you around, and good luck!

Remembers me of the cut-scenes of those old games like Lands of Lore...

The cat model is quite off the level of the environment and its animations are really simple but... nice work in overall.
