The plan is to cut to outside the building looking at the single paned window and then have him crash through it in slow motion, maybe followed by some other stuff after landing.

I'm having some serious difficulty with the perspective on the stickman and the spin of the glass, but I wanted to show this bit now to see what you think of this running/bounding.

Edit: minor .gif rape on the background windows; they're meant to be light pink rather than grey. Ah well.

I like how the camera movement is really consistent and all. Good work.

Thanks.
Very, very nice. I haven't seen anyone using pivot animate anything involving bounding steps, or a pink background, so I'll be look forward to the complete animation.

I like how you used the camera. Its a great way to show speed.

I suggest, as he crouches to jump through the wall (Is that what hes doing?) Slide the camera left so you can only see a tiny bit of the wall (maybe 5 px or even none) Then have a silent moment, followed by a quick section where he appears flying out in the air, followed by debree and smoke, then after say 2-3 quick frames, make is ultra slow motion, and slow eveeryything riiiiiggghhhht ddddooooooowwwwwwwnnnnnn.

Looks great so far.

I don't think it got .gif raped. The first window is indeed light pink and not grey.

Hey zed, glad to see you took my idea to heart and decided to make it. It looks nice and original, it also has rather nice screen panning. Well done finish it and I will post a larger comment.

abyssal is my bother

Haha. And to think when I saw your first post I nearly went straight to PM's to ask you where you got that awesome sig from. I know Abyssal's work when I see it.

Thanks, all of you.

Looks pretty bleh in the main run, looks like he is running with both feet, but I know how hard it can be to animate that when the guy is running so fast. So I suggest you space the steps out every 2 windows. Is this your first attempt with that stk? I would say try an easier stk before that one, since its hard to exaggerate the motion of double jointed centaur feet like that. But move the bottom foot joint a lot more. Maybe watch some horse running videos on youtube to see how it goes. Also, move the head up and down more, and puff the chest out when he runs, Chest out head back, then chest pushed in head down per cycle, etc.

Exaggeration is key with that stk, so work on it.

Thanks, I'll try it.

You should cc in here more often. Frankly I feel honoured to be the first one you've done in months.
