morning all,

He is an animation test that I worked on, on and off today. Just my rig swinging a sword around. Let me know what you think.

This is really funny. It makes me laugh, a office man with a sword. Anyway, you need to look at his chest and hips. Right now they do not move with the shoulders and movement of the sword, especially when he brings the sword entirely across the body. The chest stays turned in almost the same pose. The chest should twist with the shoulders because of the force of the swing of the sword. The hips would move some too, although be a little less and be following a little behind. I hope this helps.

Hi man! It's getting pretty nice. You just need to focus in the "Line of Action ". Your spine seems a little stiff. Try to bend it to get more antecipation. The time is very nice, are you using a reference?

yep ur timing looks nice, but i keep feeling like he should walk around more. pick up his feet! maybe jump a lil? and yea, the back is way too stiff. he could use more anticipation before the stronger swings too.. but good work so far! it looks great!
