Hey dsolo.....nice to see you here lets see some thumbs:):thumbsup:

Ok some thumbnails. Tell me what you think :thumbsup:

Hey dsolo....I get the idea of what you have going on...but I think you could push the poses a bit further...there are to many verticles in there for me....other than's a great start man...keep going:buttrock:

Hi Ryan, thank for comments. Well I think I try to push some pose. For example in thumbnail 1 and 2, I'll try to push with a lot of anticipation an reversal (although the video references I saw the knife throwing is a very restricted movement). Between 3 and 8 I'll try to get a more curve line of action, not so vertical like you can see in thumbnails by now.

Even if the video reference has restricted motions i'd say really really exaggerate them....really reach back when getting ready to throw and then follow with a really exaggerated motion...I think it would add alot to it..unless of course you're going for realism:) Keep going man:buttrock:

Thanks for comments Ryan, these are some thumbnails I make this afternoon with more exaggerate pose. But I take a decission about it when I begin with blocking. Because I want to reserve my extremes poses for the final. That was exposed in the firts Keith Lango supercool video tutorial (I'm sure you are suscribed, too), and I want to make some test with this new concept for me.

Let's see... :bounce:

P.D: Ali I send you a private message to update the thread title. Thanks in advance.

Hey David....of course I sub to Keiths vids:) And yes...I understand what you're saying...but im not saying make them extremes...I think you understand....your new thumbs show exaggeration but I wouldn't call them extremes...also remember the comments about verticle poses as well.
