Movements were off, and if there was a giant block, I think the stick would react to it, instead of standing still, also work on the blood, it is a liquid that was a solid.

I know, jesus man. I didn't want to make this completely elaborate and amazing. The guy was standing still because he's like "Wth?" what is he going to do? Run? Then it wouldn't make up the concept i was trying to portray.

well you posted it here so we'll comment it serious =)
As darkness-darkness said, blood needs a lot of work. Try zooming in at 400 or 800% and use the like the 2nd thinnest brush and then make the blood. Also, the blood should stick at the giant block when it hits the guy and there should be some splatters at the hit =).
Next, big block needs anticipation (i know, sounds weird^^). You should get him a bit away from the guy and then hit the guy with speed (atm there is no real action-motion-power in it). If the guy gets dismembered, blood at the dismembered limbs should be added (+splatters at dismember!).
Well, if the big block hits the guy harder and sooner, the guy hasn't a chance to run away so it looks more realistic, too =). Well yeah and maybe make the edges of the big block a little thinner, looks a bit weird imo.

=) well and if you do some halfassed animation please don't post it here cause we know you can do better and feel a bit winded up ^^

bored or not, it's still your animation. other wise you wouldnt post it here if you'd keep denying all comments bout your animation.

the physics were off and blood was awful. i think there are some more good blood tuts in the tutorial? you should read those

umm.. work on everything and remember the body should fall after his limbs get cut off. Wait, the limbs shouldn't have come off either >_>

EDIT: And **** you man, learn to accept criticism or gtfo.

Spaz, why are you going to post your animations here if you're just going to make excuses about everything everyone says about it or insult them by saying they couldn't make anything better? Honestly, if you don't like what people say about your animations, then don't post it where everyone can see/comment on them. It's not even like their being rude about it.

You are a disgrace to my name.

Spazz, would you PLEASE stop ****ing saying about my name and yours? I already explained this, I come with this name EVERYWHERE, I can't help it not knowing there was another Spazz. Relax, for ****s sakes. Spazz does not equal Spazmodan.

Dude you are such a douche, if you post your animation, your gonna get critisizm.

if you don't try dont post, all we were doing was helping your noob ass when you didn't deserve it.

And don't try to cuss that much to sound tuff, it makes you sound like an un-educated fag.

Criticism helps, so don't try and disprove it. It gives you a bad name, and is just faggy. If I were you I'd appreciate criticism. And about you and Spazz's names, you're acting like he got pissed about it, he barely mentioned it. And you ARE a disgrace, to a fucking lot of things.

Please stop being an idiot. Idiots belong here, however youre one of those special idiots that idiots look at and say, "wow what an idiot".

I (as well as about 80% of the other posters in this thread (by excluding you from the equation)) can make that same animation with two tweens and about 20 actual keyframes. By this I mean your animation was lazy and not HARDLY worth posting, but not worth posting whatsoever.

If you are looking for advice I have loads of it, but I sure I hope I don't get insulted by such an intelligent poster.

1. My first piece of advice is to not resort to vulgar so much in your posts. You look like a retard when all you have in your vocabulary is the word (f)uck as it has been stated twice while zero or maybe even one is enough.
2. For advice on your animation you have to keep this in mind:
-16-20 frames per second. fir your motion-pace to that and you will get better with your efforts
-Spend much more time on it. Look at other animations and see how they made those cool effects and how they created their cinematics and apply it to your own works.
-Keep the ending result in mind. You tried at a random killing of a stickfigure. Once you are supposively "done" with your animation and say this while you watch it: "Does <insert situation> look like it actually happened in real life? Not graphics wise but are the motions smooth? Are the physics okay? Vcam?"

There is your Constructive Criticism. The same basic things have been said already so I see no use of posting this while you would know it already if you listened to posts.

Take people's advice to heart. When you start out, everyone knows more than you, especially Spazz...... :3

Do not get worked up by names or anything. Do not mind if what others say is not to your liking, just accept it, listen to them, and this is still a forum, where people hang out, noone cares if you get worked up by anything, noone is actually trying to actually make you mad.

Geez, calm the **** down. That last part was a joke. I like how you disregard the whole meat of my post that you should be paying attention to, and nitpick about one tiny sentence that happens to grab your attention, thus defeating the purpose of my post.

Also, your user title says "Spazzykins!!". My former name was "Spazzy-Z". Coincidence? I think not.

I don't get whats with these noobs who don't like criticism. Criticism is just help to guide you for your next animation. Don't think it's insulting or deliberately hurtful. It'll make you a better animator, and DON'T throw it back. Don't even ignore it. When I animate, I look forward to criticism. Thats why I want comments. I don't know about you, though. These things said were to help, not insult, goddammit. If this guy replies doing the same thing, I don't think he'll ever learn, let alone get why people are telling him. Spazmodan, I have lot completely all of my remaining respect for you. What the hell is going through your head?

@ Brian C - He's been mentioning are names constantly and it's really starting to get annoying because he thinks I PURPOSELY did this name and my title to copy him in any way.

@ Kitsune - Thanks, that actually DOES help.

@ Spazz - Okay, so the title DID sound purposely put there. But how many times am I going to have to say "this was not on purpose!" Am I going to have to explain a whole story of my life how this name and title came to be? I guess so.

Spazmodan came from a game I played on; the owner of this server had a name Azmodan. I started out as the name Toxic. Later on I became known, and I decided to come up with a new name as a joke and I came up with Spazmodan and nobody had a problem with that. As time went on people came up with nicknames such as "Spaz" (itself) "Spazzykinz" "Spazzy" and more, but that was a while ago.

@ Apples - That does not help and that's just sounding as un-educated and immature as I am, how come nobody yells at you?

@ Brian C - So be it.

In conclusion, I know I took all this criticism to heart, but FOR ME it seemed like it was more of a complete "omg, this guy so n00b hardcore, just go die" I know I'm a noob, I know I didn't take an insane time on this animation, but I plainly said I just made this out of boredom and I didn't note "C & C" at the end like other posts because I KNEW what was wrong with this. To me, compared to all my other crappier animations, this wasn't as bad, I guess I just took it more than it was meant to be because of this mind-state. But apparantly since everyone has lost respect for me, I guess I will leave then.

You get his point. Apples is so damn awesome, he is allowed to have a slip on his insults once in a while. There has been proof posted that he is 10 (as he was 8 when he joined I believe) so sometimes its okay, from his age, to slip up.

Still, I lol'd at the furry porn on gaia comment. Not a very hardcore insult.
