Hi lovely people!

First time poster here.

Currently a couple weeks into an animation assignment and would love some helpful feedback to my progress so far.

I'm taking a sound clip Tim Curry narrated for an audiobook (Lemony Snickets) and paying homage to his character from Rocky Horror, Frank n Furter.

My main issue I'm really struggling with at the moment is just getting the lipsync tight and readable.

Thanks for taking the time!

In shot 001, the arm swing is ok, but by about 3 seconds, the arm slows down a lot, and is bent for a few frames, then straightens out at the end. That 'slowing' is really killing the exaggerated timing and feeling of the action. Nice style over all.

In shot 002, the kid is holding the lipstick(?) right where the guy's leg is once he appears in the background. That's making a weak silhouette. Just need to tweak the composition slightly so the characters are a bit more separated.
