Really lovely animation. One thing in particular, once he reaches the top of his arc before landing it looks like his forward momentum stops and he just drops. It might just be the perspective, but a little more x-translation could make it look more natural.

Its looking good. i would expect a bit more anticipation before the second jump.
keep animating:)

its looking good, nice and fluid. I noticed right at the beginning before his first jump, he begins his forward momentum a frame or two before he plants his foot. keep it up!

apart from the initial jump on the wall, your spacing is too linear. that's why there's no weight. if you don't know what i mean by linear spacing then you should pick up the animator's survival kit by richard williams. that book is like an animator's bible.

i see what your syain, i think has to do with the timing to show more weight an some delay an overlap on the limbs. im still refine it


thanks

It is coming along nicely. One place that is irking me is the end. When he is landing after that second jump he seems to hit an invisible wall and head straight down. If there was more of an arc to his motion it might alleviate that problem.

well it's definitely better. but i'm noticing that your timing gets slower and slower with each jump. try to keep the timing you have in the first jump throughout the shot. the overlap is coming along though.
