That was a nice animation.
Very smooth and it flowed well.
Delete the frame before the punch because it makes it look out of place.
And work on foot placement.

Thank 'ee good sir, if I had saved the pivot I'd edit it, but right now I'm working on another test animation.
I'll post it very soon.

Actually I didn't like it. The foot placement was terrible and the movements where off, the only thing I can do is recommend practise because you allready know how to animate you just need to get back into it. Anyway keep it up and you'll get back into it. <3

Indeed. :)

I really appreciate your feedback, and I'll try to practice.

Zed's given up on his legendary criticism?

Not at all. I just couldn't find anything to write about without going into how there aren't twelve stickmen around the side beating the crap out of each other flawlessly.

Hahahaha, my tests usually aren't fights. Once I get the basics down, then I'll escalate into fights, and ascend into good lengthy animations.

They are great animations, but work on the feet, then it will be perfect.

Thank you, my feet placement is really terrible.
I made another animation, and I paid extra attention to the feet. Somehow they still don't look perfect, but I think the animation altogether is decent...
Check the first post?

The ball looked a bit shaky at the start, as did the lower right leg (although I expect that bit would be fixed if you sorted out the foot placement). I think you could have kept extending the arm that pulls back. I also think he picks up his back leg too early. It should straighten before it lifts. And on the very last frame the bit where the ball leaves the screen needs to be lower. It's not bad though. They're very small errors.

Add feet to your guy, it actually helps with the foot placement trust me.

The Dude
04-13-2010, 01:26 PM
Why thank you guys, both of you.
I'll work on it if I continue the animation.

Looking good,the dud(Lol ryhmes).
But you seems to be double framing after each attack.
It makes it look....wierd,anyway i like the easing as smoothness of the combo.
Keep it up!

I used to be much worse, and thank you all for your feedback. I just reinstalled my operating system and will be animating again shortly.

Dude.....


Uuum...anyway...
On the newest animation the feet are much better this time around, however the main issue is the lack of easing. I understand your going for the powerful look, in which case just ease less but still ease. There aren't that many other major problems with it aside from minor stiffness problems. Make another combo please.

your animations look funny, but to do a punch the arms should to be down of the shoulders or at the same place , the kick is too elevate and not enough to the front

You're newest animation kinda looks wrong. The punches weren't Straighten much.

Well, it's not bad, but every punch goes over the head before hitting, wich looks weird. The footplacement is a bit off, it seems like he slips a few times, especially at the end. The back was very stiff and that's also a reason why the kick didn't really look good. If I have to see it as a stretch it's still weird because of the balance.

Also with the punches, it goes step by step if you look at it. You should try to make it more fluid.
