    I thought that was one of your good ones, Kellawgs. I actually really liked that.

    Just because it's unrealistic doesn't mean it's bad. It looked really cool dude.

    Thanks guys!

    I expected to get comments like: "RUN WAS TERRIBLE SPACING WAS TERRIBLE MOMENTUM WAS WAY OFF AND THOSE MOVES WERE IMPOSSIBLE."

    But I didn't......THANKS!

    Alright, I see a few major flaws. But first, you did well to animate a buildup. Lately I've seen animators just go balls-deep right out of the fucking gate, but you took the time to animate a run into the flip. So good job there.

    However, the build up pose for the first flip is awkward as fuck. The arms need to tuck back further, and fling forward to compensate for the movement you attempted to animate. Watch your animation a few times; notice how the stick kind of uses it's arms to power the flip (kind of being the key word, there needs to be much more power in the arms)? That looks weird and wrong. The stick went far too high as well.

    Also, after the first front-flip the stick landed, took a second to absorb impact and then did a mother fucking back-flip. That means you totally changed the momentum, which actually almost ruins the animation man. And it kind of bothers me that you didn't bother to animate a landing. The stick went too high on the second flip as well, and the stick didn't move to the right enough. But that can be overlooked as the momentum was already shot.

    Awesome.

    Thanks for the advice Crono, after I get back home from school I think I'll re-try the whole animation (but without the backflip shit).
