I'm not here to criticize but to ask: "What's new to that?" Animation itself looks cool though.

It's different then my old style, I guess I should post a "before and after" thing

the leg sweep needs to go around more because right now it looks like he is sliding his foot forward. maybe make him get lower and have the leg get shorter and longer to show its moving around him. other then that its much better then your old style it just flows better.

Awesome new combo, I like the style. I'll tell you a bit on what I personally think you could do to improve.

CnC:All the attacks are smooth, pretty well animated, has nice flow, but your emphasis on POWER and FORCE is lacking. What I mean by that is the spacing looks too 'one-sided'. It's pretty constant throughout the whole animation, making every attack look a tad bland. You should try spicing up your spacing techniques by spacing your figures further when they do attacks, then slow it back down to the constant speed on the stopping/changing directions/anticipation. It's what I tell most Pivot animators to improve on, not many people do it, but it really shows you know what you're doing if you get it down right.
An example of what I mean would be this: imagine he's doing a punch- he woud be spacing like you are now on the anticipation (Bringing his arm back behind his head, front arm infront of him for aiming), but when he is actually going to punch the spacing should go up by almost double for about 2 or so frames- 'BOOM', looks snappy, precise and powerful. Then go back to your regular spacing style after those few frames of 'BOOM'.
Overall it's a very subtle bit of advice, but if done properly will add more precision and power to your attacks!

Regardless you're doing great so far, keep it up!
