Exercises are a great way to test what you've learned given certain restraints, while getting feedback from your peers. Plus, they're a lot of fun!

Getting further and further into unknown territory. Let me know your thoughts guys! Thanks! :)

    theluthier haha yeah. My goal was to stay under 15 sec. This went surprisingly quick though. The lip sync itself took maybe 2hrs to go through the entire "ASAP" flow. I imagine the difficulty will go up when I get to the other 2 rigs. :)

    Nice one Phil.

    I didn't notice the lip sync on my first viewing (which is a good sign). But I noticed a couple of the head movements.

    Here’s some thoughts for you...

    -The tiny eye darts are too quick. By that I mean you have too many of them. Double the time that it spends stuck in the one spot before darting to the next, and less darts (hope that makes sense)
    -you can add some translation on the head in the moves.
    -Spiral on the top of the head when you tilt around f35 (I think you know what I mean)

    Lip sync:
    -you can swap the 'n' shape around 52 with a more closed shape. Why? Well think about it as continuing the closing of the 'W' shape in doWn.
    -Magical is a little mooshy. Simplfy it. Try to ignore the 'g' and *try* swapping the 'L' shape with a 'W' (similar reason to before) and see if it looks better.
    -then you could try adding a breakdown shape before going into the final smile.

    But you have done an excellent job with the 2d limitations of this rig. :)
