    Brandon539's thread (diemos tribute finished :D)

    Hello everyone, I am a newish pivot user I had only animated for about a week or two then stopped and I just came back. Here is my latest animation that I made a few hours ago


    Rust test


    This animation is just me trying to get a hold of it again, you know when you haven't used something for a while and you might be a little worse then when you used it on a regular bases, well this applies to this animation.

    Deimos tribute/dragon pivots tribute (FINISHED!)

    The video can be found in his sig,I likes his animation, it was awesome, and I intended to put more into it, but when I got into it it became very time consuming/complicated trying to move all the sticks but it was fun none the less. Thanks again deimos for making such an epic animation

    If u guys have any suggestions for my animations then please post

    This should help.



    It doesn't have to be resized to 50, but you don't want your animations too big cos it will lag when you post them on DD.
    Btw, your animations are nice, but very stiff. You can avoid this by moving every joint in every frame.
    Also, work some more on easing; start your movement off slow, then make it pick up speed, and when you come to the end, slow it down.

    Courtesy?

    You've only animated for a week, stopped and started again. You are one of the best animators I've ever seen. It doesn't hurt that I love the plot of the animation too.

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

    The "Best"?

    Anyway, it was ok for beginner, but you need to work on easing, flow, and choppiness(all the basics).

    I suggest reading some tutorials, which will help you alot.
