    AGGH I HATE MY FLIPS



    This was my first serious flip, and it really was terrible. I know that.

    So I'd like some advice on how to improve my flips and whatnot.

    No demoralizing faggots going "UR FLIPS SUX NOOB GTFO"

    I'd just like some help and crits.

    Hmm, seems like you're not making the twist obvious enough (where he turns from facing backwards to forwards, not the flip twist itself) - Try having the arms wrap round his body a bit more to make it look less 2D. Also, in flips you wouldn't gain that force when jumping, you need to bend down more, jump up, and flip very very quickly then land. It's less of a 'down - jump into flip - swirl - land', more of a 'down, jump - tuck in knees and flip as quickly as possible going up - land'.
    The knees do need to bend, for that type of flip you animated it may look a bit weird, but just bend them a bit to give a hint of realism.
    When he lands it was good, but you need to have a few more frames of him recovering from the land, it takes quite a bit of force to the feet.

    Sorry, that was less of an animation comment and more of a tutorial, but that seems to be what you want.

    Nothing is wrong with it really...
    It's fine.

    Maybe a tutorial could make it a little better...
    This is a signature.

    maybeh he should jump a little higher so that flip can have 1 or 2 more frames in it.
