first off your animation is fantastic for someone self taught. However, the one where 2 team up on the one guy and guy#3 does a flying jumpkick, that looked a lil, mmm, choppy.

I would personally leave out the attempt at clothing.

I noticed your using the default biped rig for 3ds max. You should try some of the free models available out there, many are rigged with facial animations, which I think will definelty be a requirent for an animator.

you can get the one i used here
free 3ds max rig (
also I created a fully rigged dragon if you wanna play with it. :D
(giving credit where it is due of course)

I am just starting off in animation, but have some experience with texturing/riggin/modelling. Let me know if youd like to collaborate on something.

i like it, but the movements needs to be more natural lot of the stuff is there jus need some more refining theres no recoil or follow through on a lot of the animaitons an your doin stuff from the matix so your bar has been set very high , im not sayin the animations arent good jus need to faness them a bit more. keep up cheers

I agree.. there's nothin wrong with mimicking motions from a movie, but live action timing looks different on cg characters. Your animations need a whole lot more POW in the impacts. The constant slow motion is annoying (in my opinion) and it would be cooler to see everything leading up to the impacts at normal speed. (flying through the air is fine for slowmo)

Also, as said above, your cameras are jerky too. Work on smoothing out the motions, and play with the timing. Looks like you've got a great start though! Keep it up!

I had to compress the video thats why its jerky on some, just rendered it looks incredibley smooth. thx for some feedback though

i think you'd better add more weights and adjust the timing
