Thanks for Watching.

That was awesome man !, just put a floor line and you have done it !

EDIT : Please work on the physics, its not realistic, but it was awesome...

Try to actually apply the laws of physics into your animations, because people don't usually stay in mid-air in the same spot and slow down to do their flip.
A floor would be pretty nice too, so that you know where his feet are and everything.

As for the basics, it's choppy, stiff, poorly eased, and the physics are off.

You did good, just up the FPS a little bit.

And the back at the ending concerns me. You just broke my precious stickman xD

I needa edit when hes in the "air"

But yeah, gonna practice more tomorrow.

I just got home, and the PC I'm using doesn't have Pivot.

But yeah, I'll practice more on flips, then make a "Wall Pivot"

Thanks for the crits guys.

@ Gyohdon, what do you mean "broke my stickman"??

I think he meant, that you screwed up his default stickman lol XD !!

His back at the end.

It's way too bent =D

Ohh, after watching it a few times, I get what you mean.

Hmm, what should I fix in it?? So I can do it later or tomorrow...

Btw, what do I need mastered to make a "Wall Pivot"??

Depends on what you want in your wall pivot. First you need a wall, but that's not too hard xD

And then practice, running, walking, falling and landing, getting up and fighing while jumping or running.

And if you wanna go real advanced, practice the use of beams and other effects and weapons.

But that may take a while.

btw: Only 14 posts of crap, then my 1000th post. And I'm saving it for something speciall.....

Hmm, ok, so tomorrow I'll go look for tutorials and practice:
Back Flips
Punchs
Running
Fighting
Beams
Effects & Weapons
Cracked Wall
Blood
Falling & Landing
Getting Up
Fighting in Air
Explosions
Special Effect

I don't plan on making this "Wall Pivot" until I'm done mastering these.

So basically 1-2weeks of practicing. I got loads of work to do.

I'll first start on getting better on "Back Flips" tomorrow

Hmm, ok, so tomorrow I'll go look for tutorials and practice:
Back Flips
Punchs
Running These three are almost done

Fighting Learn to kick and learn reactions and you're done

Beams Look into all beam tutorials, which look good, and then try to make a beam. Pretty hard though, I don't even make beams that good. Been here a year though....

Effects & Weapons Effects are blood beams and explosions =P
weapons might be tough though.

Cracked Wall Just need to find a good stk. I think i got for you.

Blood Might be tough. I can make you a stk pack to practice with, but it's always better to make your own.

Falling & Landing Is not so hard

Getting Up Pretty easy too =p

Fighting in Air If you know how to do fight, this will be easy

Explosions This is pretty hard. I might be able to help you a little bit, but I can't do it that good myself.

Special Effect Euhm, you already mentioned those, rite?

Might take a whole month, be prepared to sweat.

In the end, it'll be worth it.

The physics are poor, stayed in the air to long, make him land quicker, more realistic.

Pm me for piv to study.

Hmm, so basically less clips in the air, more "getting ready to flip" and "landing"??

I'll try it out tomorrow.

No offence ren, but, i dint like it much, prob cause i dont care THAT much abt physics, or maybe the physics are rong..? the end was good....
Rabstar
i like urs more, but try not using the default stk on Pivot 3, most ppl dont like it...

Then again flips are hard to get perfect so I would even stick with special effects over flips for now.

Hmm, ok, so tomorrow I'll go look for tutorials and practice:
Back Flips - I made a tut, although the physics are poor on my tut
Punchs - Easy to do jsut take practise. I also made a tut.
Running - think realisticly on Running.
Fighting - again think realisticly. and to make a really good fight, over do the impact.
Beams - Add my msn, i teaches you.
Effects & Weapons - Add my msn, i teaches you.
Cracked Wall - .stks
Blood - either make a blood back or steal some one elses... or, loads of lines errr. Look about DD or Droids for blood tuts, the ones here are poor.
Falling & Landing - Easy, just simple physics.
Getting Up - err...
Fighting in Air - Honestly i dont think there are tuts for this, just take away the ground. and either make them fly, or fall really fast, but hit eachother ect. Remember air force would come into play though
Explosions - Msn me.
Special Effect - msn me

I don't plan on making this "Wall Pivot" until I'm done mastering these.

You need to make a tut on that. that is really good. Although a little too fast i think on either the flip or the start bit. but nice.

I like your avi :Happy:

and I got the idea of a flip from one of those "help" animes you made.

or is it considered stealing in some way??
