Hey, this is my first Pivot for about a year. I made one which was terrible, and before that I hadn't been into Pivot for about a year, so you could say I haven't properly done Pivot for about two years. I used to be "med-Intermediate" but I have no idea what I am now seeing as what was probably Intermediate is now rated as Beginner.

I have done all techniques by memory, no tutorials have been read.

I know, the blue guy's movements are awkward at times. The little yellow marks when the orange guy is dragged are sparks and worked well in the .piv but I think they're now too small to notice or make impact.

Not bad nigguh, the hands that reached out on the taller guy shook a little bit, and the part when the orange guy fell the ground was kinda off.
Stick was original, haven't seen custom heads in a while, the throw was done right,and the sparks were a nice touch. Good to see some older pivoteers come back.
Just scrap off that rust. And you'll be good to go.

No it isn't, it's choppy and stiff. What animation were you watching?

It's not choppy, it is smooth.

Unfortunately, extreme smoothness results in stiffness.

Thank you for your comments, peeps.

Yes it's me, the Ustartin. For those wondering about the .stk, I used a similar one in an animation I did called "Swords and Shields" a couple of years ago. Now with my new PC and all .stks deleted I'm trying to find a style again. I was aiming for a "drawn" style, so the .stk varies in thickness and it's not all smooth.

So Yogi, you still pivoting?

Oh and I'm tempted to bring back "Ustartin's caravan of whacky goodness".

I don't know what the shit that is. How old are you here anyway.

Pretty old, almost as old as me.

If Harry sticks around this time (:p) he'll be one of the oldest Pivoteers currently animating, not just of SP, but everywhere.

In response to Ustartin's question, I'm not that active anymore, though I may make an animation for fun lol.

Did Bert, Bahamut and Jon stop?

Bahamut is now Darren, he photoshops, but doesn't animate.
Bert's moved onto Flash, and no longer Pivots.
As for Jon, he does use Flash, and he hasn't Pivoted for a fair few months.

A shame, but then again, flash is better...

Flame dweller, Capn, El lobo, Stimpy, Mattns, Jaco and Picto.
They all still animate and are older, and i'm sure there are many more.

Edit: I also started in early '06 >:C
