looks kinda choppy. here are some tips!
-all body parts move. it just makes it look more natural
-don't make it move unnaturally don't make him fly up then go left like you kinda did with the 2nd to last one.
-and uh speeding up the frame rate makes it look less choppy sometimes but don't really use this a lot. try to check it and if it looks odd don't bother with insert frame crap its to annoying just remake it again.
uhh thats all I got.
any one else?

At least you know how to upload the animations, so I give you props on that, just work on your movements and easing.

its quiet choppy, there was no easing - so beginners thread
and the running isn't only a bit choppy, it's choppy

The physics on the guy who got shot by the shotgun were way off. Nobody flies up into the air like that when they get shot by a shotty

Artasmas you should be the one to leave forever if you ask me. It appears zawmbee is a fairly respected person in the forums. And you are fairly new seeing as how you only have 21 posts. I bet multiple people would agree with what i just said

Anims are choppy and arguments are invalid. Go practice and post in the beginner thread.

Hey there Art, welcome to SP! For now I think you should post in the Beginners' Section so you can get tips from fellow beginners and get hold of some basic movements in Pivot.

Let's start off with your first animation - Overall, this animation is choppy. It lacks realism. The legs are too stiff, think about how a real person would use their legs in this situation. They would be bent with the heavy gun and trying to stand still. It looks like you tried to make them jump back because the gun was so powerful, try making the whole body more smooth. The other person flies too far back and none of their blood hits the floor. Work on the basics in this animation - position and movements. The gun shot was okay, the idea of him throwing the gun with one hand was unrealistic, seeing as you originally tried the gun as being heavy and powerful, also it was very choppy. The blood on the wall was nice, as was the man being shot back - just make it smoother and more realistic (would he really get hit so far back, and, by being it in the torso would his whole body flip inwards?)

Second animation - I think you read a tutorial for this one. If not, think about it. Does it look realistic to you? Pivot isn't real life so no one's expecting it to look like a real person running, but I think you might agree that it looks stiff and choppy. Go for a more exaggerated style of running (big strides and arms, tight). The back leg also needs to come infront of the front leg at some point, but other than that you've mustered the core basics of running - just improve on it a lot.

Third animation - My favourite of the four. Although very simple it is the smoothest. When the guy's in the box it looks great, however, when he comes out he slides too far (I think you did that for looping purposes, how about changing it and making it something more interesting and more realistic?) the running is very basic and looks choppy. Make sure you bend the legs more for the jump into the box and make it look like more of a struggle when he jumps onto the "J". Also, make his back bend at some point. Other than that, I like this animation but it needs work!

Fourth animation - a nice use of sprites here. To make it look more natural, curve the back and have both legs pointing forwards. He also looks too static, moving each body part that's supposed to be still a little bit on each frame makes it look more realistic because when we stand still we're not dead still but moving a little bit. Don't go wild, just the tiniest bit will achieve the desired affect. Just for throwing a card (or whatever it is, I never played "Platform Racing 2") his arm moves a whole circle! Make it move less and bend the forearm to make it realistic. It is quite smooth but add a few frames to make it smoother and work on easing (that's slowing down at the end of a movement, not just coming to a dead halt).

Overall I see you have potential, keep it up and remember to post in the Beginners' Section for the time being.

EDIT: All of you, shut the f*** up. He's a new member and will make mistakes. You should be welcoming him, not acting like the 'tards you are. Just show him the right way politely, we've all made mistakes. It looks like you guys still are. You've been here longer than him and you think you can act like that well I like him more than most of you and I've seen about 5 posts. He comes here posting his animations and asking for advice, not flaming from people who have been here for years and should know better.
