he looks almost weightless when he lands. have his feet hit the ground, then bend his body down way faster, like three or four frames. offset the head as well, and that should give it more weight. also, i don't know if you're planning to use this on a reel or not, but if so, take out the bird at the end. most employers will take offense to that, and it shows a certain amount of immaturity.

good stuff so far, just keep on tweaking it! :)

I agree completely with Capel, he definalely needs more weight to him. The wobble looks to forced and doens't really flow with the falling, check the timing of that.

The swinging of the sword doesn't seem to have any meaning, he does it like someone would shake a stick, not a sword :shrug:

Keep it up though, there's some nice stuff there just have a play...

thanks a lot guys. well, im not planning to include it in my reel...it's quite offensive i bet, that was only a test animation.

i'll keep those raised points in mind and put some weights in it.tnx again.
