Hi everyone  this is my first time here.
There's a project that I'm busy with, "Cookie" ;D and I would like your opinion about it  8)

Here is the link

Not bad, just watch your deformation on the penquins skin when animating them.

Well done LIL ZEBOS
 You must have a fairly decent computer, rendering all them penguins, and with shadows as well. My computer would probably have trouble rendering something like this, but that has had its bonuses, forcing me to learn a fair bit about 'chromo-keying'. (green screening then mixing later in post production. Opens up possibilities, worth investigating. I use 'sonic foundry vegas video 4'. Its old, but allows unlimited tracks, which is awesome.)

 All in all the vid you've made is pretty cool.
 A challenge could be to have a few close-ups. (https://s6.postimg.org/y2drxlqch/Winkgrey.gif)
  How do you feel about 'close-ups'?, and perhaps a little 'beak-syncing' as well ?.....
 It took me a while to realise who was singing, a close up early on could possibly improve that. And some closeups of the rest of the penguins  can give a glimpse of some 'individuality' in the crowd.
Great effort so far. Well done.  (https://s6.postimg.org/vid36dwgx/Smile_Blnkgry.gif)

This was a lot of fun to watch, and the animation is nicely synchronised with the soundtrack.  A couple of things I can suggest would be higher-poly penguins or better edge smoothing and some beak-synching as johnar suggested as sometimes it's tricky to know who is singing/rapping which part.  Also, while the choreography of the background penguins is admirably tight it might add a level of realism* if some were just slightly out of sync and if there was some variance in the amount of movement.  In other words, perhaps a mix of 4 or 5 slightly different sequences scattered through the chorus line.

* Possibly a bad choice of word given the theme ;)

 ENSONIQ5 Looks like i was editing my post just as you were posting. My edited post came up 2 seconds, literally, before your post.
 You've added nicely to exactly what i was thinking, about adding some individualism to the dancers.

Very well made. So Pixar-like.
