Pretty nice man, i have a suggestion tho.Instead of moving the left foot first use the right foot.But other then that its perfect.

You have to make the legs cross over, and add more frames to smooth it out, but pretty good for a first.

Not bad for a first, but the action lines need to be seperate and go smoother.

the legs have no point of mouving the sword swing is ok but it would be bad in a thite you need a beter program and HTF did you make the trail

yeah, the legs look pointless when moving. But otherwise NICE!!

That was a great swing and I think it was worthy of being in a full animation.

i think this is rubbish. because this looks as worse as a first aniamtion thing. and its not.
tip: learn how to walk run jump, easeing, before you think about sword swings and stuff like that. and try to make your own sticks. and move the backward leg slowly forward. right before it touches the ground the you should have done the swing.

Yehaw before you try effects improve your *ahem* animations. and basics.

yeh yeh i thort it was good

needs some back movement, get to it, add some realistic movements and you're one the road to improvement

it was only a sword swing

If it's just a sword swing why was there a stickman?

I'm sorry, but we are very very picky here. If you make an animation, either don't include the stick figure or try hard to animate him as well.

That said, the swing effect was good, if slightly choppy.

no i was testing if i could do a sword swing its not like turnign into a series or anything..... i can do the swings but it looks gay with arms so i kept trying gort better

03-24-2008, 05:54 AM
btw while im here anyone got a good fighting tut the others r good but arnt good for long series......... so anyone?

It doesn't matter, everyone but me seems to have the magical power to see every frame individually and see every tiny mistake.

Besides, this is criticism, if you try to move everything on the screen then you'll get used to moving stick men and swords at the same time. Or, more used to it if you've animated before.
