You need to learn a thing called "Anticipation"

You know that part of a jump at the beginning? where the guy leans forward and bends his knees? That is the anticipation or charging up of the jump power. All human motions need this. A punch, a kick, a jump, a run, even a walk. The stronger the motion, the more anticipation you need to put into it.

Your kick needs anticipation in the jump, and the upper-body can add force to the motion.

Just look at a kick or a run in real life and look at how the upper body and head moves as the person runs. Try emulating that by drawing it frame by frame.

Different running and other variations of motions require different elements applied to it.

This man is running down a hill, so he keeps his balance by bringing back his upper body and keeping that part as stationary as possible:

The anticipation and landings of this faggy parkour shows the realistic motions people make while jumping.

Once you learn this shit, you can get more creative with your physics to make them much more aesthetically pleasing to your audience.


Look at some animations on the front page to see some of these unrealistic, yet still amazing physics work.

I think i get it..is this better?

A bit better, but it needs improvement.

YOUR ANIMATIONS are very good for a newbie, and for some reason you archer looks like it was made by raffi, so i think your quickly improving

The archer looks like I drew it?

Naw, that's when I was nub.

lol, true but then that must mean he's gonna have very good potential of becoming a very good flash animator....keep at it kegasha

04-17-2008, 07:05 AM
