    Re: I am Animation

    Pretty good, and you've definitely progressed a lot from when you first started animating but there's still some work you need to do to rise through the ranks here on DD.
    Firstly your movements need some work. Basic movements like walking, running and some fighting moves like kicking and punching are all essential things for animating in pivot so you need to know how to do them probably. I recommend looking at some tutorials to help you improve. This tutorial:

    http://darkdemon.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=22662

    Should help you with most of the simple things you need. Hit ctrl+f, type in the movement you want to get better at and look through the tutorial on it. If you can't find the movement you want in there check the tutorials section, there are loads of tuts in there and you're bound to find the one you need eventually.
    I also see you're trying more complex movements such as the handstand kick thing. Well, once you've mastered easing, stiffness, how to make an animation flow and some other basic movements you'll be able to make those complex movements look much better.

    Another thing you need to work on is shakiness. As you can see some of the joints in your animations shake a lot when you move them. Try to edit frames at then end of your animations so you can improve what's there and work out any little shakes and things that might have crept in. Remember to always keep a note of the movement you're doing so you don't forget and move the joint in the wrong direction as this is when shakiness can come up.

    Easing is another thing you ought to make some tests on and try to improve. Take a look at the tutorial I posted up there^^^ for some tips on easing (press ctrl+f and go down until you get to the part about easing). Generally though a simple diagram of easing looks like this:
    |-|---|-----|----------------|-----|---|-|
    When | is the joint you're moving and - is how much it moves by. Easing helps your animations to look a lot smoother and will help your movements look better, whatever movement it might be that you're doing.

    Finally, stiffness. This pretty much speaks for itself - it's how stiff a certain joint is. To combat stiffness try trailing the joint you're moving in the onion skin. This makes it flow better and takes the stiffness away from the animation. Again, this is covered in this tutorial so you can take a look in there for more advice. A simple diagram of that looks like this:


    Credit to Darren for this image, I did not make it.

    Overall, you're a low, perhaps med beginner at the moment here but if you continue to improve and use other people's CC to aid you when you animate you'll improve quickly and eventually you'll find yourself going up the ranks. Keep animating man.

    Re: New animations

    Tell me, do you even like stick figures. Looking at what these animations are doing to them, I'd say not.

    And shot again. And again. And if you die you will still be shot again.
