Here is another short animation I did, feedback welcome
Bro, the animation is very smooth and well done, but this is the flash forum, not 3d animation.
Which program did you use btw?
oh my goodness I’ve been reading the title wrong the whole time hangs head in shame
I use maya.
Alot of people have actually posted animations here for critique, most likely because it’s the first thread that mentions “animation”
Here are my critques:
Looks kind of floaty, the character doesn’t seem to have much weight. The reason may be due to the fact that his foot doesn’t plant very well.
Here is a link they may or may not be useful http://www.freetoon.com/prestonblair/02-charactermov/pages/106.html in terms of the difference between a walk and run.
I think the character should swing his sword when he is half way through the air and not when he lands. That may look better :shrug:
By the way I’m not a left hander so I can’t comment on the swing bit. Also I don’t have a mirror with me
Note: these are just my opinions.
you’re right about the floatiness, I think I might have flattend the tangents by accident so I’ll go through and break them so the guy has a distinctive plant. Thanks for your crits, should the animation go in the techniques forum?
Yeah, it should go under the “3D/2D Techniques” > “Animation” Thread. In order to get better feeback.
