    Welcome to the forums tontonguimu :)

    The Fan films / SciFi3D forum might be more suited place for your animation and for feedback from other animators/filmmakers.

    A few questions though as I am curious about your processes.

    How do you find using Blender and have you had any experience with other 3D modelling/animation programs? Do you specialise in just the animation or do you also work on the modelling, rigging, lighting, texturing and sound design side of the production? If you are using assets made from someone else, as a rule and courtesy, you have to give credit to those that created those elements.

    You are off to a good start with blocking in the performance though the timing needs more refinement to get the motion looking more natural and that will require at least several passes to achieve that. As an animator, sometimes it helps to act out the intended performance, even record yourself doing the actions so that you get a feel of the weight and motion of the character's performance. It does help you pick up on details that you might not realise. There are a few tutorials you may find online that can go more in-depth about this.

    I hope that you'll find the feedback useful with your works :)

    I'm French sorry for my english
    I find Anakin, spaceship and battle droid on TF3DM... it's was just a test movie, so short to make all congratulations (i was testing light on lightsaber, and animate in one week, using kinect with delicode nimate for animate Anakin)
    on my last clip i did
    I only use blender since one year because it's free, and it's a hobby, not my job... can see all my clips on

    and watch my progression
    thank you for advice... so much work to improve, i have not enough time... but i'm improving lightly

    See you
