@00:05Gotchya. Personally, I think it all can still be done within that time limit, you just need to fudge with the timing on the various parts to make it all work together. The pose on the rearing back with the mallet can be done with no changing of the timing at all. That would just be some changes to the drawings. But as you said, it's onto the next thing and as long as you learn and keep learning then it's all worth while.

This is for a school assignment. The assignment was to make a pencil test animation, containing 50 unique phases and all in 'pose to pose' animating style. We also had to include some form of follow-through and anticipation (of course).

EDIT: The animation was disapproved by my teacher, I need to make a better one. Kinda saw this coming, ah well...

@00:05You have some good fluid motion there. The one thing that stuck out for me that could use improving is all the actions after he pulls out the mallet. This is where it starts to lack a little weight and the anticipation could be a lot greater. When he pulls back the mallet he really should be rearing back instead of being straight up and down. Think of the line of action and where the energy is going. And then when he comes down on the canvas, that should be a faster action. It should start slow but finish really quick to show the weight of the mallet. Also with a quicker finish, it shows a bigger impact. Usually the faster two things come together the greater the impact is. Hope this has been helpful!

@00:05Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, I totally agree with the flaws, and was aware of them while making it. But it needed to be short, about 4 seconds. So unfortunately, I had to sacrifice some of the elements. Maybe I will improve it someday, but seeing the upcoming schedule, I don't think that will happen.
