Hi Everyone!

this is my current work in progress, I still have a little ways to go on it but I'd like to share with you guys to see what everyone thinks so far:

I still have to fix some pops here and there and the ending is still pretty sloppy, not even sure if that's a strong enough end pose. It could probably use some more snappy movement but anyhow, let me know what you guys think!

man this aint an easy animation to fire out lol! Awesome start tho - theres a coupla moments where feet appear to slip on the floor as hands are placing but I'm sure you know where they are. My crit would be the bit where he is on the ground then gets up and drops onto the ground again (frames 130-150 ish) ...I would exaggerate that weight by enhancing the upright pose more possibly and dropping him a touch faster - I can see the kinda freeze/into-drop thing going on but it feels a little soft at the moment

awesome work mate - I'm working on some capoeira stuff at home and thats not easy so this would give me nightmares lol but you've tackled it brilliantly :)

cant wait to see the updates :cool:

Hi Anthony,

thanks for your msg! Yeah that hop up/down thing does need to be exagerated a bit more, I've already really tightened it up from the reference but looks like i gotta take it even further! Thanks for the fresh eyes.

ya the the feet sliding is going to be fixed by the next time I post my progress.
Thanks!

let me know anyone if theres anything else
