Holidays - Michaels Sunday Update

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to get your thoughts on the continued progress that I have made.

*I've refined the mouth and the corners... still need to work on the shapes.
*Added in Shoulder movements.
*Reduced the head move during the kiss.
*Continued to refine the facial animation.

Let me know your thoughts and feedback about these notes and where it's going.



  1. Hi Michael, looking good. A couple of things to clarify:
    - he blinks right on the kiss, almost as if he anticipates it. Might be better to take out this blink and just do the expression change.
    - Try growing into happy expression after kiss over a longer time. Feels a little sharp.
    - Once in the happy attitude his pupils feel fixed in space. Let them move around a little, not focusing on anything.
    - Waitress needs to pull back from the kiss before heading screen right. Looks like she's moving right through him.
    - brow shape is a little complicated after kiss. Let them be simple upward curves, no tension over nose.
    - Mouth looks really small during smile. Pull the screen right corner much further towards hand.

    Keep going!

  2. Thank you for your time and your notes! I'll see you on Wednesday if I don't post again by then.

    Have a great weekend :)

  3. Looks awesome, man. I think, he should not blink yet till right after he got kissed, then smile happy.

    have a good one.
