Hey Zey, glad to see you're still sticking with this project. What I really suggest that you increase the frame rate. Right now its just too slow, speed up the frame rate, add some more frames and it will look much better.

I like your characters and sets but with the frame rate so low its hard to follow and can be unappealing

Just my personal opinion, good luck

When I first looked at the video I thought is was a costumed actor riding the bike. I realized that's not the case as it played on. Nice sequence. I'm sure it's a challenge to stop motion animate a character riding a bike. My suggestion would be to show Zey peddling as opposed to gliding along. It would be more work but interesting to see this effect. The payoff would be a more authentic replication of an action one would normally associate with riding a bike. Good luck and thanks for posting the animation.

Hi, Charles, Thank you for your comments appreciated! Wow that was cool, you thought Zey was someone in costume!!

With the bicycle i made Zey look like he was pedalling by making his feet go forward and backwards because i can't change the pedals so they actually rotate round!! but i thought i'd make his feet move in some way!!.

As usual i am experimenting and trying thing's out!! :)
