For the process of this review, I will be looking at fellow classmate, Zachary Martell. Upon first looking at it without looking into the individual frames in detail, it looks okay. Stilted movements which look like more frames needed to be added into it, but it does look consistent in its animation, It could use some tweening but it is okay.
After looking into each frames individually, there was a lot to take note of in such a short animation loop. The first notable issue is that the first four frames are the exact same, while I know some people who have the exact same issue, I won’t be too harsh on it. But it doesn’t change the fact that this is the first issue right out of the gate. Then on the 5th frame, the arm transition seems very odd, maybe it is because of the stiff movement but it still doesn’t look very good. Then in the 7th frame we see the position is unchanged from the previous frame. Then again in the 9th frame, 11th frame, 13th frame, 15th frame, 17th frame, 19th frame, and 23rd frame. Frame 20 has too much jump in the arms and looks very odd. And finally, the last frame is supposed to set up the first frame, but the position in the left leg is jumbled up and doesn’t ease very well.
Now to end on the lighter side, despite the repetitive frames and frames having too much jump, the jumped frames work well since almost all frames have the same jump and they keep a consistent pattern. However one frame breaks the flow but having too much jump but it still has an overall consistent pattern. And the shoulder movement is completely spot on, never have I found the shoulder have a few hitches but the right kind since the arms move in a way that the shoulder needs to lift it up a bit more. Keep on practicing there.

Because it can cause some to play favourites and others to lash out publicly online. I have no issue with peer reviewing people we know personally in a negative tone, I just don’t like doing it on the internet for everyone to see.
