    Hi Urby.

    Great work mate.  Here's a couple polishing notes to help push your skills further.


    -When the ball is jumping you want to show the stretch in contact with the ground.  This will show it pushing off the ground.  At the moment, most of the jumps have the most extreme stretch a few frames up from the ground.

    Also on the landing, you want to show the ball stretching before it squashes.  This is how it cushions the impact.

    (you haven't done this on every jump but check for all the ones where you have)

    -on the landing at f151, it looks like the ball is spinning on the ground for 1 frame and then bouncing forward.

    I think you can probably get rid of this frame and try to keep the momentum on the top control flowing. (I hope that makes sense)

    Also there's a couple arcs that are a bit wobbly where you are going from stretched back to the default shape.


    But good stuff.  Look for the places where you have repeated the same issues.  If you can fix it in 1 spot, it's the same solution in the others if you know what I mean.


    Keep up the good work.
