    'Special getting up move' tutorial

    I have NO CLUE how this move is called, but if anyone knows, don't hesitate to post/PM, so I can change the title...
    Now that that's said:
    Hi, this is my first tutorial, I hope you like it!
    The images were converted to .gif format, for file compression. Therefore the quality isn't the best.

    This is what we're gonna learn:



    And here is the .piv file

    As you can see (and as the topic title suggests), we're learning how to get up from the floor. All you need is a stick, and optionally a floor. The example is 26 frames long, at 21 fps.


    Frame 1:
    First off, you start with your stick flat on the floor.

    Frame 2:
    The legs start rising, keep this movement small for the sake of easing.
    Frame 2 pic

    Frame 3:
    Move the legs up again. Remember the knees are bent. The arms stay on the floor to carry the weight of the body. Notice that the orange dot doesn't just stay on the ground.
    Frame 3 pic

    Frame 4-12:
    Just keep rising those legs, and use the arms to carry the weight. His rear moves up too, so basically your stick is putting all his weight in the arms, back and head. Also, the spine curves a bit.

    Frame 7 pic
    Frame 8 pic
    Frame 9 pic
    Frame 10 pic
    Frame 11 pic
    Frame 12 pic


    Frame 13-15:
    These are the most odd movements in the whole move. Your stick basically flies in the air, and rotates. The arms follow behind him. In frame 13 and 14 he goes up, and in frame 15 he starts 'losing altitude' already. Remember that the stick also flies forwards. Also, keep the knees bent.

    Frame 14 pic
    Frame 15 pic



    Frame 16-19:
    The stick lands. This is why I've told you to keep the knees bent. The back hunches forward, the arms simply stick out in (more or less) a 90 degree angle from the back. The legs are positioned in such a way that the stick looks like it's kneeling. Ease to a stop.

    Frame 18 pic
    Frame 19 pic



    Frame 20-26:
    The stick stands up. Again, easing is required. Choose either the front or the back foot/leg, and make sure that foot/leg stays in it's position. The other foot/leg slides towards it while both knees (finally) straighten, along with the arms and spine.

    Frame 21 pic
    Frame 22 pic
    Frame 23 pic
    Frame 24 pic
    Frame 25 pic
    Frame 26 pic





    And there you go! Movement finito. Again, hope you liked it.
    Have fun pivoting!

    Well, keep in mind that I'm still in beginners and this is my first tut. I was just scrolling through the 'request-a-tut' topic, and someone had requested this move in september...

    IN SEPTEMBER, IN FREAKING SEPTEMBER

    Ifyou're a beginner, don't make tuts. As simple as that. It probably wont help anyone and takes up precious memory

    In september? I thought I requested this a couple days ago lol.
    Anyways, the way you made the tut was ok, but the movement itself was beginner quality. Sorry...

    Beginners should not make tutorials on things they can't do amazingly.
