    Hey anakonda, nice submission.

    It's all looking good but here's a couple polishing notes for you.

    -think about the top control moving in an arc or spiral where appropriate. eg - at the start it can swoop around in a spiral before the take off. Hope that makes sense.

    -think about the spacing as the ball is stretching to take off. Is it slowing into the stretch pose when it should be speeding up?

    -make sure all your arcs go all the way to the ground. You have a few of them that arc to the last frame or so, and then travel straight down.

    -How does the ball pop from the ground into the corner of the ledge? You need to animate that. Where is the antic?

    -watch out for pausing in your arcs as he is rotating.

    But looks like you had a blast - well done.

    This one is so much fun!! Great job on giving him 'character' :D there are a few bounces that could be a bit polished (they sometimes hang a bit in the air, I'm sure when you have fresh eyes you will see it), but most of it looks good. And the rolling looks great!! Keep it up :)
