Yes, this is my very first animation, and the only one i have ever done, my friend helped me a bit. But i still need to know, that how i make the moves look better, to me they look weird. So, can someone help me with that?

ok, before anyone posts here i would like to say that, if it is your first animation that people will crit your animation. some of what they put you will think is untrue, however, dont yell at them because they know what they are talking about, they have been here for a while.

now for the anim-http://img519.imageshack.us/img519/1086/myfirstanimationgiftf8.gif

for a first it was okay. work on movements and pretty much everything in the book. read sum tuts and look at some of the good animators such as doomdooer, powerfuse, blacky, and frodomoj. See their anims and see what you should work on. another thing is don't use the default stick (stick figure in the middle of the screen when u open pivot). If you don't have any stk files you can make your own in the "create figure type" option or you can go to Droidz (http://www.droidz.org) where you may download stk files for free and you may use them in your animation. (but give credz to droidz when u post it). good luck! and happy animating.

Sheezy: Hey, thanks for posting the animation.

And, I know that people have more, you know.. experience from animating and much more knowlege about that than i do.. everybody can give as much as critisim they want, im just looking for constructive critisim, not asking you or anyone to do it. But thanks for telling me that.

SRC: Thanks for the comment and advices, i start studying the tutorials now, i just checked out, oh wait.. was it Doomdooers animation, it looked awesome, so fuild and stuff.

good for u. also i forgot earlier to mention beginners should post in the Beginners Section (http://www.stickpageportal.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35330&page=2038) the link takes u to the last page so you can post your anims as quick as possible. You should post anims in the beginners section until you are told otherwise ok?

At least your not a noob. your just a newb.

read some tuts and practice basic movements (running walking punching kicking jumping) along with easing and spacing, once youve got the hang of it (you don't have to be fluid right away) your animations will be significantly better. also to keep in mind for later on there are three things i find really help make a pivot better:

SRC: Ok, i "posted" another animation to the Beginners section, I think i made little improvement allready.

Jet: Lol.

NeCrOdE: Thanks for comment, And "Patience Practice Creativity" Well said mate.

More than likely.
God, I'm a concieted bastard, huh?

Anyway, man, you seem like a sensible guy. First of all, you probably better start off posting your animations in the Beginners thread.
We just re-established it, so people really want it to be used.

Next, a good thing to do right now, is look at tutorials. They do help a lot.
A good one is Bahamut's Ultimate Tutorial on www.darkdemon.org
It explains a lot of basic things you'll need to know.

If you really need one, I'm sure several members around the Pivot section would be willing to mentor you.
