erm... how about a running loop, but like he fights people while he's running?

that was terrible, that wasnt a throw?
more like a beam.
also it was far too choppy it lacked power and the bounce had no physics whats so ever.
maybe its the rust.

I agree, it werent a throw, more like it was coming straight out of his arm. Anyway, I like the physics.

yeah like i said - rusteh as... well... me. it wasnt really meant to be a throw, he was meant to pull it out of a slot thing on his arm and spear someone or whatever, but then i decided to just make it bounce. anyway, what was so bad with the physics of the bounce???

also, heres what i was like before the rust:

It's not badly animated, but I am yet to see anyone in reality who would throw a stick like that.

It should be an overhand throw.

:( nothing i guess. though i was better before, though you might not notice it with these anims (maybe not any). i just need to improve physics and easing

The physics aren't that bad, I really just don't like the throw.

Yeah, the throw was a little bad, you got the bouncing height right but I don't like how the stick slides on the ground before it goes up. Nice camera shift too. Beginner thread tho...
