Hello to everybody!

I'd like to show some test animation,

Here's the link to the video:

OK... on the first crash to the ground a slight bounce to the body with overlapping motion spreading to the limbs would help convey some weight.

On the limping walk cycle, he never appears to transfer weight to the leading foot so it doesn't look plausible when he pulls the trailing foot forward. And the upper body is quite rigid when he lunges forward. That's working against the feeling of mass and weight, also. I'd find a way to break that up with overlap in the torso vs. the head vs. the arms.

Those are the things that immediately strike me.


edit: Here's an example limping walk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzLqvfwVezE) I did for at AnimationMentor

This other clip is just a gag shot but at the end it show bodies bouncing when they hit the ground: link in post #112 (http://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=23073&view=findpost&p=270872)
