i usually hate the Bone based Vector animation.
but you really put a lot of effort into it and it shows!
you really made it work.
however i feel that the shadows are a bit to soft..... more harsh shadows might work to this animations favor given the low lighting in the environment.
i also feel the 2d model could be a bit more detailed.
but those are honestly nitpicks.
overall Excellent job!
I tend to just use gifs for tests.. as to not clutter the movie portal.
But overall your animation needs some work.
Its stiff and clunky... doesnt seem to flow at all.
You seem to rely way too much on your flash tools.
I would really recomend getting ok at animating frame by frame tests before attempting to use these time saveing tools in flash.
Because you clearly seem to be useing those tools as a suplement for actual animation. And you arent really gonna get a good final product like that.
Im not saying never use the tools... just use them only when you need to.
Best of luck to you!
