    Spent more time on it to make it looks better.

    This is an excellent first pass ejaaaaaaack but do you notice a little bit of weirdness?

    Here are some pointers to help you out...

    Vertical bounce:
    This one is pretty good but try reducing the timing a little (maybe 2 or 3 frames). Exaggerate everything more now that you have S&S. Make the tight spacing tighter and the big spacing bigger, once the stretch kicks in try to add speed. Oh and aim for the same spacing on the way up as the way down (it’s close).

    Arcing bounce:
    This one gets a little weird because of the spacing and the stretch. Aim for the same things as above but also keep the stretch inline with the path of action. Especially on the first contact frame and take off frame. Draw your motion paths and aim the top of the ball back from the direction it came from.
    Then when the ball slows down you have to be a lot more subtle with the amount of stretch.

    Sometimes it takes time for your brain to see this stuff. But keep doing what you’re doing and it will see it in no time.

    Keep it up.

    the lasts bounces of the arcing part could be stretched further, It looks like you tried to make it fit in the screen. Otherwise it looks good to me. :)
