This was an animation exercise done for one of my classes. The assignment was to animate a character lifting a heavy object and have them toss it. This was a fun step up from previous work, as I got to work with a mre detailed character model of my own creation. This guy was a little tricky to animate, it was hard to keep track of the movement of both his belly scales and his tail. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but if anyone has any criticism or constructive critiques then feel free to let me know.

Wow. This is amazing! From the sense of weight to the animation of the limbs and facial expression, absolutely perfect. Each limb's animation carefully creates the illusion of weight and gravity. When the rock drops, It would be nice to see it hit the ground within the same scene in order to continue to convey that weight, but other than that its a perfect text book example of weight. I should also add that the line work and character design help to make this project very appealing so bravo on that as well. Keep it up! I'm very envious of your talent!

I like the curling and sudden flick of his tail while he's lifting the rock... egg... thing. He looks so relieved when he finally tosses it!

Well the weight is definitely conveyed. I particularly love how you animated his legs. The facial expressions is a great sell!
