This Exercise Submission has passed!

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!

Bit of a rough pass, but as far as I can get tonight. Any fresh eyes would be helpful. Thanks folks! :D

    Nice choice in audio Phil.

    It's going great so far.
    I love his default look.

    Here’s some general things I see
    -keep the narrow longer at f19 before going wide on "Things"
    -Get the lips closed on the B’s and M’s and you will need to add some middle top lip movement to some of those as well.
    -The V shape ("Have") is hard with his teeth like that, but get the lower mid lip up higher.
    - add some narrow to the "My" in My name so it isn't static.

    Then in the polishing stage it's all about the spacing on those controls. When do they slow in/out and when do they start the move to the next shape.
    If in doubt, try for smooth curves in the GE and see what that looks like. If they feel like they are always moving non-stop, think of it like a moving hold.
    (I think you know what that means - if not let me know)

    Keep going Phil :)
