I just took a look at it, and it was really beautiful.
I loved the fluidity of the movements, and the ending was really cool.
Great work !

:)


Cheers,

LOL... Awesome! When I studied martial arts, that was one of the songs my grandmaster used to make us work out to. :thumbsup:

I love it for the most part... just a quick nit-pick to try to help you:
I'd suggest loosening up his spine a bit and getting more subtle asymmetry and arcs (http://billysalisbury.com/tutorials_principles.htm)into his body motions, particularly early on. I think it looks great overall (especially love around 1:32), but I've got to admit, these concepts stand out to me big-time, partly because I struggle with this kind of stiffness in my own animations.

:scream: Really,you have heard this song before?the world is sooooo small ^^ This is a movie ending song from early Jetli's kongfu movie,and the song lyric tell us how to see the world in a peaceful heart,an some of thought of Tao:Lao zi's theory.
thank your "nit-pick" too,i learned a new word:) yes ,you are right,the spine is only two bones,and i use CharacterStudio to make the animation,i'll pay more attention later.And Btw,i studied martial arts too:) muay thai is my favourite,lucky to meet you!
And thank blz too,thank you for reply,i love u all:wavey:

SWEET!!! I like it! Good job :thumbsup:
Very graceful and fluid. Nice job on the color choices and textures. I used to practice and martial arts too. I love studying the internal styles such as tai chi and qi gung. Since I started school though I couldn't keep up with the study or practice.
Muay thai is one of my favorite styes to! :buttrock:

And at last,it seemd my animation don't touched the Admins ,and seemd never would.
I don't know the "star" rule,see some "star"work ,i was shocked and confused:eek:
What's the standard. we all are animators,and all can see the truth.
maybe the most importand thing is where i am from,i have thought it's a pure art forum,
now i am very dissappointed,not only me have the feel,but some of my friends too,that's why they don't come again. Since here no welcome,i think no need to stay more.

play yourself,see never:drool:

Very nice, and for me it's hardwork! :cool: I practice frequently Yang style Tai-Chi before but due to work i stopped for a while. I love to see especially martial arts animations like Kung Fu Panda, simply awesome and beautiful moves. BTW, care to watch my very short animation below :). Thank you. I hope to see more of your animations in the future.
