    Animations and stuff. :D

    Alright. I quit animating about a year ago and now I've decided to "start back up again." Whether this is just some phase or whatever, I don't know, but I'd like to get a group opinion about some animations I've made.

    So go ahead and leave a response if you have the time, telling me what you think. Thanks.

    The most recent ones will be at the top, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll be the best. Really.

    Yay! A pretty good animation, considering I haven't animated in a year. The ending's abrupt, I'll admit that, but I'm more focused on the jumping, which I quite like.

    Spinny run.

    Portals! How original!

    Unfinished mountain animation.

    Take that, pink stick figure!

    Kick loop.

    Crappy kick to the face.

    ^ This guy's my bro. Greatest guy ever, don't forget it.

    Awesome to see you back! The newest is pretty cool, no stiffness at all and the movements were pretty alright. The camera movements didn't line up with the way the stick figure moved. As the animation the length from the black line to the stick figure varied a lot. Your spacing is kind of boring sometimes because it shows very little variation. Yeah, you ease at the start of your movements, but once you have the movement eased in, that's where the variation ends. You need to switch it up more. In every movement there are certain parts where the figure will move forward more or less than the frame before. It's just too consistent with you : P

    But still awesome for just now getting back into it. Looking to be close to intermediate already : O

    To smooth. Meh, if you wanted unrealistic you managed it =D. Though, you have some neat work, i would like to see the mountain thingy finnished. But things are going to smooth, there are none real quick and devastating movements in your fighting moves (though, the tremor triggers that effect... but in a long fighting ani it would look like it was an earthquake going on. Try only to use tremor (shakings) when your stick is using some form of a "finnisher")

    I think your pretty good. There is no stiffness I can see, and you ease really well, as well, so i think you should be interz.

    Re: Animations and stuff. :D

    Your smooth style is awesome. I like your movements, although some I think need a bit of work. Like someone said above me I believe, your fighting moves don't really go too fast, so while there is the sense of impact, there isn't much. Tremor helps with it, but don't over use it.
    I think you'll also want to work on camera movements and such. In that mountain animation, when it moved from the mountain to the guy on the bench, the guy standing on the mountain got a bit shaky and didn't move quite right with it. Also I think I saw the clouds be a bit shaky, so just watch out for stuff like that.
    I think you should be inter, but that's just me. I probably fail at ranks >.>
    But yeah, if not inter, most definetly damn close to it. Keep it up dude!

    Make this stop. Let this end.

    This life chose me. I'm not lost in sin!

    Re: Animations and stuff. :D

    Courtesy? OF COURSE welll. what i saw in your animations. was amazing smoothness and flow. quite fluid in fact. but. in the mountain animation. i saw a bit off stiffness in the back. and in the kick loop it was pretty stiff in the beginning. and the run in the crappy kick to the face anim just kinda looked weird. and the spinny run was cool. but he looked more like he was bouncing than runnin:P other than that. it was really really good. i think your prolly High/High-highbeg (it makes sense.) or borderz. really cool animations. keep up the good work dude. i cant wait for you to make more anims.
    -Pwny

    p.s. the newest anim wasnt that good cause it was no onionskin. look at it again know that. and it doesnt look as bad XP haha. but hey man. we should do a joint sometime. i mean. if your down
