    Thanks for the feedback Wayne. The stretch spacing issue you mentioned makes sense to me now that I am looking at it again with fresh eyes. I also see what you are saying about the antic.

    Welcome back Kevin! Yay!

    Well done here.  Let me see if I can give you some notes and answer your questions.


    -I think you are correct about the breathing room.  If you want it to feel like he is looking and thinking about that big jump, you can give him more 'thinking' time before that jump.

    Another alternative is less time. You can keep it moving and go straight to the big jump and this will show that this is nothing that he can't handle (if you know what I mean)

    -on f40 it is sticky because of the spacing on the top of the ball.  You are slowing into the stretch on the top of the ball when this should be accelerating all the way through.

    Track the top control from f37-40.  The spacing should be the biggest gap to get to the stretched take off.

    Also check for this same issue on the other jumps.  I won't tell you where I spot it because I'm sure you will be able to see it ;)

    -with the section at f172, you can come back from looking at the edge but then I think you can antic the other way before just going straight into the next pose.  (ie - antic to the right at f181 before going to the antic at f184)

    Hope that makes sense.

    But welcome back!
