    Pivoting Practice #1 - Power Throw

    Welcome to new, and hopefully long lasting, addition to the Pivoting Community.
    Here's a Q&A to tell what's the hap, homies....

    Q) Liek wtflol?
    A) A good question. This will be a place to post animations. But they will be animations based on certain themes.

    Q) Yea but nubcake, you tried this with AOTM/AOTF, Pivot Wars, and god knows what else. IT WILL FAIL!
    A) I now know why they all failed. It was too much like hard work running a competition constantly. Always having to make/find prizes, and eventually, I lost interest, like always.

    Q) So why won't this fail?
    A) Because this isn't a competition. This is just somewhere to find an idea to animate. Or to practice, or to just have fun.

    Q) Oh ok. So, how's it going to work exactly?
    A) I, or my helpers, will set up a Pivoting Practice Thread every now and then. I'm not gonna keep a strict routine, because that is another ingredient that led to failure before. Each time we set up a PP, it will be of a different Theme. All you have to do is animate the theme if you can be arsed. Then you can post it in the Thread if you want. It is not a competition. Just practice and fun. There is also no deadline. The most current PP will be stickied. But you can post in older ones if you like. So YOU CAN BUMP OLDER PPs.

    Q) Oh so no strings attached. I like. Who are the helpers then?
    A) For now, just my nubcake Werez. But I will appoint more if they are interested : )

    Q) Kcul. So finally, what's this PP's Theme?
    A) See Title or below vv


    Pivot Practice #1

    THEME: Power Throw

    Explanation: Animate a stick(s) throwing something/anything. The key element to this is to get a real feeling of power behind the throw. I think this is good to practice, because it can easily be transferred to fighting, with power punches and the like.

    K Go!

    This is the best idea ever. I've seen this on FluidAnims. I'm in.

    Thread
    No one rates your animations? Do you need help? Do you want to request something?
    PM me and I'll do my best to satisfy you.

    Glad everyone likes the idea : D
    And there are no prizes because it is not a competition, and never will be.
    And remember, even months on you can post in this Thread if you find it. Bumping of any length IS ALLOWED : )

    I could make an advertising userbar for the thread, seeing as I usually make prizes for pivot comps.

    Why does it sound sad? It's been said over and over that it isn't a comp. There is nothing to compete with so how would prizes even be involved?

    Yeah, I did it.



    Hopefully if I do these PP's(lol) I can get out of my midget ways and start animating better with big sticks.
