Ok I added a few poses and in-between's, and I stated to work on the timing as well, Theres alot of thing I want to change here before I continue, The timing for one could be changed to add more to the animation, also theres a few poses im not happy with, Any way I'de like to get some feedback on this one, before I keep going.

btw, this is the first time im using the lowman and it great Its alot easyer to use then other rigs I used so far, and so far im happy with it

Any way, C&c are welcomed so let me know what you think.

I think it looks good.
What I've noticed is After he raises on his hands he takes a step with his hands. During this step his feet move very stiff, solid and together. If his feet move seperately and maybe bend some, he might look more like trying to gain his balance.

Just an idea. Good luck.

Thanks for your comment

Your idea gave me another perspective on that, When I was doing those poses I work paying more attention to the arms area and not the legs, Ill look at it again now, I mite find other poses that seem to be a bit stange.

Any way, About the timing I think im going to make the whole middle part, meaning the two parts where he stands on one hand or fingre, faster. I feel like right now im just showing these poses too long, and this scene should have alot more attention on the last part where he jumps.

Hey Amir,

When I right click and save link as in mozilla, all I get is a 20k file that quicktime doesn't recognize. Might be something on my end but i'm not too technical

I've kept working on this one, Im going to change the main concept a bit, but for now your not going to see any changes, Im much happier with the first part of the animation now, But I still have alot of unsolved issues. One of them is the elbo bends on one of the poses and a ping pong type action, its right before the last pose, im not sure how im gonna fix that, but I know im going to change that.

I'de love to get some feedback

Looks good to me for the beginning.....I would throw the hands back a bit further on the antic for the handstand. You might be able to add some extra weight to it too or make him look just a tad off balance when he's walking on his hands...yes he's skilled...but he's nervous It's an audition

Thanks for your feedback Remi, It gave me alot more to think about. Right now im just doing a simple acting for do this then that, I have to make a character come out of this animation, Ill start working with the head and face animation, I didnt work on that at all and that could show what my character is feeling, Also all the movments I made are very direct, ill see what I can do about that

I think it looks very good, almost perfect, maybe you could make it more interesting by animating some imperfections. Good luck!

"almost perfect" ah

Right now im mostly animating the character to do the hand stand stuff, Ill start working on the facial expressions soon, im hoping that will make it loose that too perfect animated feel and give it some character, thanks for you comment

btw I've changed all the links to a better host, Im just hoping this host will be good, the links now work when you click them, no need to right click and save or copy paste stuff, let me know if you have any more problems with them
