thanx guys! and great C+C too! right on the mark... I am thinking I might finish the entire animation first, then go back and tweak everything. otherwise I might not finish! *gulp*

This is the hardest challenge yet!

... well, I am off to abuse the dreaded "set key" function!

It didnt sinc the way I had it in the animatic I have alot more work to be done in the next week!

Very excellence Hogsward. I am a little confused as to why theres a screaming banana, but the movement, and expressoins on the screaming banana are very nice.

i agree with eagleking... the screams seem a little... underexadurated.

Good job Howard! I do agree though... a little more scream needs to go into the bannana's scream . :bgreen:

Ooh, ikarus... She is screaming because of invasion of privacy.... Men, uhh..... Howard, how's your fridge? Still got hinges left? Love the door slamming and the broom falling, nice touch. Mouth on the banana; not much time left, so for a quick fix maybe shuv a lattice on it (my favorite saying), or maybe a deformer and giggle the lips to the scream. Very nice

Excellent, perhaps focus on the banana a bit as the door opens as you don't quite get the nude shock thing when she screams and I couldn't exactly see what was going on, so the reason for the scream seemed a bit underemphasised. I'd agree she needs to 'scream' a bit more too. I really like the bloke's expression and the way the eggs bob about is priceless. Coming along really nicely, the movements all look very natural and well weighted, cool stuff.

Witchy, you just want to ogle the busty banana. For shame!

However, I must concur that you really don't see the reason for all the screaming (other than the man...I'd fear a painting pear also). She looks to be more "gasping in shock" than "screaming in terror/embarassment."

Can I help it if I lust after topless female fruit?

Actually, don't answer that.
