    Ok, you've got the character part done akariaris. But there's just a little polish work to do.

    Here are some notes to push your skills further.
    -Have a look at everytime the top changes direction and think about if it needs to slow into and out of that move. And also if it should arc rather than going in a straight line. So check to see what happening in all the antic moves.
    -Also turn on the motion paths to track the arcs in those first jumps.
    -Think about the momentum on the top of the ball when he jumps forward and then stops. Try to follow through so the top of the ball goes past where he wants to go and then comes back. At the moment he lands and just reacts straight down. (hope you can see what I mean)

    And that is pretty much it. The same errors are appearing in a couple of spots so once you see how to fix it on the first one, apply the same idea to the rest,

    Good work.
