    Attack on Pearl Harbour animation I just finished

    See what you think:

    It isn't very long (1:34), but there's some longer stuff on my channel if you're interested

    Edit a like this so it shows up in the thread better:

    Code:
     [*video=youtube;WglTYrywNk8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WglTYrywNk8[/video*]
    leave out the *'s and it will appear properly in your thread.

    As I said on Facebook, very nice work. Great 3D sprite drawing skills. I don't think I've seen any other Pivot animations use sprites to this extent before.

    Like peter said very handy use of sprite work. With the whole 3d animation portion of the background objects, you did very well. I feel though you may of focuses too much on that and the general animation of the figures suffered dearly. Since you gotten the task of 3D animating of backgrounds and sort of got a good grasp on the effects, can we see some figure animating? If you want to upload the gifs of these figure animation when you get time use imgur.com to do so.

    That's really awesome, man. I thought this was going to be rather low-tier animation, this really impressed me. The actual stick figure animation wasn't all that mind-blowing, but the over-all use of sprites was really good. You may have over-done it a bit with the ship capsizing sheet, but nonetheless, you did a very good job. Did you draw all the sprites yourself or did you use external sources?

    That's it, keep it up.

    I drew all the sprites myself, and it took ages and ages to draw them all.
    As requested, here's some figure animating I just done:

    It's animated at 15fps, as opposed to the video I posted earlier which was 12fps (what I'm used to).
    I don't normally animate stuff like this, I'm much more used to animating what you saw in the video... but with much less sprites.
    Whoa guys

    dude it's not bad at all, tbqh you did it pretty good, just be what you have to watch out for is keeping it from looking like he's gliding which would mean keep the planted foot in place.

    So you like animating frame by frame but hand drawn. Have you tried flash/toon boom?

    I've tried using Flash before, it's quite good but I prefer the simplicity and style of Pivot.
    Just had a look at Toon Boom, some of it's features and what it offers looks very good, but it does look a bit complex for someone like me who just likes to animate casually.

    While your stick movements have a lot of room for improvement, your use of sprites is just fantastic. I love these war animations, much better than a lot of the real high quality movement tests posted around here. I'd love to see more!

    That's what I usually animate, and you can see them on my profile here.
    Alternatively, here's probably my favourite animation I've done, which I made for my A Level media coursework (5:17)


    And here's my longest, and also one of my favourites (6:00)
    Whoa guys
