I liked it, Although I agree you need more particles, easing and better sticks... The animation was actually alright, and a nice addition to the easytoon forum...

Nice work!

Thanks for the feedback! But what do you guys mean by particles and where should i put them? And i do agree that the tremor was a little too heavy in this, but i had to add something to make it look good lol.

particle is.. particle, it's like dust or something that will appear after you did some effects, arghh!!!!

I'm not good at explain things :(

Oh, i got what your saying....and now that i think about it there should be TONS of particles in this animation....but i got lazy and the only effect i added was the tremor...if thats even an effect

Thick stick figures.

agreed on the particles, but i cant really help with the thick sticks right now, i have a mouse and use the pencil tool, so my sticks would be utter crap if they werent thick

Why did you have to say that in my thread? It doesn't really relate to anything...

Actually the one in his sig is horrible. Yes it looks cartoony but there are many elements missing. I see almost no easing (if any) and the particles are just horrible. The anatomy of the stick is also very inconsistent. Try to make the size of your stick not change. Throughout the whole animation, instead of his body getting lower to crouch, you just lengthened his legs and made them bend and his body stayed at the same height. Same with swords. Instead of him swinging the sword at a reasonable length his arm just lengthened and swung around and his body didn't move at all. A way you could replace that is having him step forward and move one shoulder forward. Just try to make sure the sticks legs are longer than the torso and his arms are a little shorter than the torso. The heads are fine for the style.

And yes I realize this is bumped but there's a page of comments why would mine hurt anymore than any of those if not do him some good.

Thank you for the in-depth review, that's what i've been looking for ever since i joined SPP lol, i agree my legs are a little retarted, and thanks for telling me a way to fix that, i will be sure to use that in my future animations

Your stick figures have a specific head, and body (everything), because you don't use pencil, but icons like square or something like that. It makes your anims not-wobbly.
