like i say in the devs post, i do some perspective and it makes his legs look short at the beggining.

Yea, his leg disappears in the bring up of the second kick, this is quite a good style. In an animation the black screen flash would be replaced by a v-cam roll, and you need to make your sticks fatter, if you enjoy that style then you can go back to it once you've improved, as it is easier to animate with a fatter stick.. there is less wobbliness.. (for beginners)

having said that I've seen you improve so much in the last week with your persistent animation...

thats when it goes behind his body probbaly but ty for the crit, i didnt notice that. ++ vcam? whats that?

^^ how to use the V-cam, explains it all

If you have a look at terkoiz's animation, you'll notice he used the V-cam a heck of a lot... but He still does use some black frames... It's whatever looks good really..

yea, i know terk. nhazul does that kind of thing aswell. (i started because i saw their animations on devs)

Well, literally every animator, when there not doing random tests would use that... so I just thought I should inform you about it.

kk, i downloaded it. it looks good.

Uh yeah. It's just really really stiff. You should bend the limbs. Try either making the sticks a bit fatter, or just draw them shorter. Look up stonesbucket if you haven't and Strills' tutorial he just put up (even if unfinished) is really in depth. Go to his deviantart and look it up.

?on stones-bucket,? I just went on there to see if I could gather any tips, and it seems to be redone... with no tutorials on it at the moment?

the kick looks really weird, maybe its just the black flash though. don't be afraid to move your guy foreward, it seems like he should.
