Hey everyone. I’ll be posting my WIP hopefully tomorrow. I know it is a bit late, but I have tons of time to work on it this weekend and all week next week, so I should be good.
Anyway Mr. Mike, I noticed you weren’t getting any crits yet so I thought I would share a few observations to help you out. First off I like the over all animation so far, just a few things bugged me. The crouch is a little bit unnatural. I think it would benefit very much if you had him put a knee down or something to stabilize him, especially when he pulls it. I really like the last pull, it looks like you pushed it a lot further than the first attempt. I know he is pulling harder the second time, but you really need to sell the force he is using and get that good silhouette. I think it would help if you flattened his right hand against the safe a bit more, and made it look as though he is using that hand for leverage. As he is pulling, his right arm should be, if not totally, almost straight with his shoulder forward like he is pushing on it, and his left arm would be slightly angled with his left shoulder back. Don’t be afraid to really push those poses, a little stretch goes a long way in pulling off weight and force. That’s really all that I noticed, very good so far.
Parikang yours looks very nice, but I think your biggest problem is the animation curves. If you get those smoothed out a bit more your hands should be almost, if not totally, fixed, and you would be well on your way.
Bobi877 yours is turning out great. I agree with Mr. Mike, however, if you got the hands more clenched and the last “dip” fixed it should be a great final animation.
I hope this helps, or at least gives you a good idea, and I am looking forward to posting my animation here tomorrow.
