Default Finished Centaur Animations - University Project feedback would be great :)

Hey there this is the tread to show off my finished centaur animations, i made a WIP thread for it which can be located here http://www.animationforum.net/forum/...ed=1#post79336 if you want to see how the animation have changed but this is my final year project for university the idea is to combine motion capture and hand animation, id love for you guys to check it out and leave me some feedback, if you could comment on how the animation looks overall, if you think the motion capture and hand animation blends well and generally anything you want to say. thanks for looking and i look forward to seeing what you say. Thanks.

The bow and arrow animation looks great...I think you nailed that one. The falling centaur lacks weight. The walking centaur looks artificial....a centaur should walk like a horse. Your centaur walks more like two guys in a horse suit, I suspect because of the use of a human being for motion capture. Study a horse's walk cycle and try that one again.

My two cents. Keep up the good work!

I also find that the bow and arrow part looks great, the update is better but I find the front legs abit stiff.
