I believe you have a decent reel. However it seems to lack focus. I would recommend construsting a reel just for modeling and a reel just for animation. And then if you want to incorporate both you should make an animated short.
You should include some fight sequences, if you want to be a serious character animator, those will leave the biggest impression.
Build a model, a sort of crème de la crème (see I speak french too). Make it the best model you've ever made (try to avoid inorganic models), the more you invest, the bigger the return.
Nice work though, I look forward to the next animation.
Oh yeah, and what kind of karate do you do?

hey thanks for the critic. i just wrote a huuuuuuuge paragraph and it got deleted :|. in short wut i wrote was that i am working on a new character now. i'm gonna upload him here. my martial arts background is in philipino martial arts, brazilian jiu jitsu and capoeira basicaly. my dad braught me up on shotokan karate but i never liked it as much as free flowing martial arts.
thanks again for the critic

I love the new character, great modeling and texturing too.
What's the difference between "free flowing martial arts" and shotokan? I've been taking shotokan for years and I never found it to be rigid.

philipino marital arts work on small circular movements in close quarter range. it involves staying lose and being able to move at any angle. they prefer to parry or evade rather than to block. a movement that is stoped should be ablt to rap around wutever is blocking it. but if parried or evaded has to continue on that specific path. Also a lot of the movements in philipino martial arts never stop. When i attack u either counter or keep getting hit and i counter the counter and it keeps going. this is how you are taught from day one. if you have msn add me email@example.com i will send you videos.

That sounds interesting, similar to Kung Fu? The biggest difference i've seen between kung fu and shotokan is that kung fu seems to be more circular and smooth. Shotokan is based more around what will get the job done quickly and simply without thought. I'm biased however, I've been doing it all my life.

shotokan believes that one punch should be enough to finish someone. philipino martial arts says maybe it will, maybe it wont so keep going. keep moving. dont stop no matter what. There is a lot of knife fighting and stick fighting as well. the idea is if you can dogdge a blade then a hand becomes much less threatning and the philipines is infested with knife fights and killings, so it developed as a martial art that uses weapons. Shotokan also dosnt really acknowledge range properly. most fights close punching gaps in under a second. Some go to the gorund some dont, but to believe your gonna be able to stay within one range a whole fight is unrealistic. i've done shotokan (very traditional) my dad trained 17 years serisouly and i find it dosnt compare to philipino martial arts. Kung fu is very different than philipino martial arts. i would say the closest kung fu would be wing chun but dosnt use the same angles. the only styles that are very similar to philipino marital arts are indonesian martial arts aka silat

The idea behind shotokan is if you can block an oncoming technique you can effectively use your training to stop the fight. No one even has to be hurt. Generally if an opponet sees that you are willing to fight back they will not press any further. That's why the first few seconds are so important. Plus if a person is properly trained and knows what they are doing, they will stay within their comfort range and have complete control of the match. Even if grabbed, they would know how to react and use their instint (because that's what shotokan does, it fine-tunes your instincts) to end the fight.
