I just recently have been trying out a basic form of lip-sync I am curious to know if its correct for the viewers most people I show them say its fine but I am not 100% sure.

heres the deal I am using only 8 diferent lips including mouth shut.

5 of them are vogals (A,E,I,O,U) 

2 of them are consunants (one is more tooth and the other tongue) 

shut mouth is M'n'Ms

I have been posting on Deviant Art recently, please check them in my animated gallery in the link >>> http://mikiel.deviantart.com/gallery/2437254 /span>

you can give the feedback here in the blog

With so few frames it will be fine with the character moving more. I notice the old-timers cut back on mouth articulation when character is in motion.

thank you for the feedback, yes I haven't really acted my puppets much, (kind of robot-talkers like this  ) this are just 1st time tests to see if it looks good "lip-wise".

the cut could be disguised in post-edit (but since it was just a test I didn't)
