thanks but I need a better comment than that.

Too many fast direction changes make it difficult to watch and enjoy. The back seemed very stiff, and I suspect the lack of joints didn't help that issue. I'd also say the amount of momentum loss when he put his foot down after the first little hop was far too great for what that foot could actually do. And the leg that he flipped off didn't really have any sort of pattern to its movements after it left the floor, although I thought it was more or less perfect up until that point. I'd like to see you add four frames of followthrough on the end and about six frames at the start with no movement to make it more watchable.

Physics on the flip was good. And at least it's an improvement on what you had before.

never expected something that detailed but thanks zed,you give great comments but you never seem to apply them to your animations though.

Yeah, I tend to get lazy. It's probably the biggest problem with my animating.

I think it might be my eyes, but I saw a 3-D leg in there :P

It is quite good, but as Zed said, the back was a bit stiff, but nice physics :)

Because I don't like your animations?
No joke , But I really don't like it.
It reminds me to much of faggoty DD.

There is a very strong demonic accent to MA's animations, but I decided that on it's own that wasn't enough criticism, just like I'm no longer allowed to use the word "American" as an insult but have to break it down into it's components.

my brain cannot process your post zed,please speak in english.

I mean that just describing your animation as "looks like it was made by an animator who spent too much time on DarkDemon" isn't enough criticism. It has to be pointed out what makes it look like that, and why it might be better a different way.

well what's the problem with me going to DD? In fact I haven't there for a month until I started animating my jolt flip v2.

DD killed your old style , Your Old style was much more fun to watch at.

When he began to jump his foot went through the "floor". Watch the foot placement.

It was supposed to though. His foot placement did not have any flaws.

I remember those animations very well poppet,it's just that DD doesn't like my old style so I had to adapt,I'm might be asshole for saying this though but I think they're better at what they say about what should I do in pivot.

Very nice, just a little stiff and very speedy kinda hard to follow.
