Hi Cheng,

Great job.. really liked the animation.. please keep it up..
Would like to make a couple of observations..
Firstly when he is changing his course from up to down, the feel of 'losing gained force and at a point being gripped back by gravity' could be improved by adding more slow out and slow in..
Secondly, am not able to somehow fully understand the final gag when he slips and falls down.. may be to add something that explains why he falls down, would help..
Please keep up the hard work..
Thank you !

I have to agree with nary about the slow in and slow out for for the peeks of his airtime. I like the end where he catches his foot, its a nice close to the animation.

Reminds me of an old cartoon "Rocket Power".

Nice work man. You need more hang time though. The point at where hes at his peak is too fast. HAve more hang time. Use Weighted Tangents to get that effect.

Hello everybody

Yes Mr Bizzle you are right it's look like this cartoon. my friend who did the character design of him like to do big head characater like that.
he is a freelance 3d artist. He actually doing the scene for the skate guy :) here his web site :

as for the jump. when i watching the quicktime file, on the first preview i posted it's wasn't good, but on the last one i think it's work.

but let see maybe i watched too many times, i ll give it a break till the scene's done and i do some tweaking on.

stay tune for a new update soon.

thank for your comments and critics
