glad to have you with us. I hope that you don't take offense is my criticism, I'll only point out things that you need to work on.


-You have some resizing; he gets bigger as it goes on.
-solutions: use the grid tool(rightclick>grid>show grid)
Onion skin(on the bottom of the timeline, under all the keyframes?).

-Work on physics; he's not in the air long enough, add more frames.
-solutions: practice

-Try to get your movements down better; his legs stay behind too much and he should be curled up more when he does the flip(it'll look better).
-solutions: watch other animations and see how they do it.


I hope this is watered down enough for ya :D

Ok, that wasn't bad for a first.

Few things wrong. His back was too stiff in the run 'n jump and he flipped WAY to fast. Physics need to be practiced, also work on the stiffness.

What FPS was it?

You have used other programs such as pivot right?

It is rather smooth needs a bit of easing during jump, but good.

Yes, I did use pivot for a while. Oh and thanks for the critisism

For a first it's pretty good, but you need to add;
- Easing
- Smoothness
Basically you need to work on your physics.

you know, if its really your first anim, you should be proud because you've got talent if your anim were in a context like comedy it maybe fits because its fast..
anyway, u should improve the jumping thing and when he falls you maybe do it more smooth, his fall is too hard.
(i like writing)
hope it helps you.=)

Thanks, I spent a lot of time watching tutorials and stuff before I started. That's probably why it's good for a first. By the way, what's easing, and how do you use it

Oh, so easing is when a stick gradually gets fast as he starts to run and gradually gets slower as it comes to a stop. Thanks Rawgreen. Here's a second animation. i'm trying to learn a basic punch.

still work on movements.
