I'd understand why you'd think that way, no biggy dude.

It's just, im not gunna link to an animation tutorial. He's a big boy he can google that stuff. As far as me giving him basic advice I'd rather not sound like a broken record. I've done basic advice.... millions of times. I'm tired of giving it. Basics is somthing you look up by yourself. Thats what I did, that what everybody does. Plenty of tutorials already made for that sorta thing, google is your friend. I'm working on a pivot tutorial in flash already, when I'm finished that freaking monster he can go look that up.

And I'm giving sound advice for him to not post any more animations on here till he actually does look up animation tutorials. This keeps the thread from turning into what made the other 2 fail miserably. Everyone thats a reg to the old thread knows what I'm talking about, and should understand what I said makes sense.

If he wanted my advice, he'd of hated it, because I'm brutaly honest, esspecially with sloppy work. Learning from the past, I figured it's best to just keep my mouth shut on that sort of deal. But if your saying I should go back and tell him what I really think of his animation..... lol

In case any of you are wondering, Ape has been working on an epicmation to kick off his sort of return to the forums. From what I know, it involves tentacles. Problem is, his internets have been cancelled for some reason and he can only access the internets from other computers.

Anyway, animated a little sump'n sump'n for you guys. Enjoy.

Or don't.

Advice if i can. Cause I know you wont hate me for it :P Just little tweaks you can apply, to tune it up even better.

It was a good flip and all his body positions were in the right direction, but he needs a little more weight to him. He caught his fall a little too easy. Add more easing frames to his landing and have him absorb the landing with the ground more will give the impression of weight.

Also his horizontal movement kind of stopped in mid air in the middle of the flip. Law of physics 101, direction of horizontal travel in mid air is generally constant. Take that into account as well as inertia and momentum and you can even factor in an even more realistic landing.

I'm not sure what happened with the initial jump. The front leg was wobbly. Were you trying to have the legs cross in mid-air? It's hard to tell. The leg positions were off for that. I dunno, shit happens.

The front flips physics were a little off. He actually landed pretty well tho. You had the right idea using the arms as the push off force. But you gave forward flipping rotation to the entire body too soon. To help with this, you could do a transition from his starting position to a forward roll, use the roll to get his arms into position to get a good push off for a front flip. The roll also helps the illusion as to why he's rotating forward once he pushes off. Not saying you have to do this, but its a suggestion.

Mostly it's just physics tweaks. Takes some getting used to. Again tho the limb positioning looks great.

Another thing for the front flip. More of an alternative. If you don't want to use the arms as the push off force and you dont want the guy to roll, instead make him use the legs as the push off force and us his arms as the support for the front flip. Meaning you use the legs to get the flip going and the arms to separate the stick man from the ground.

I could animate these as an example if you want.

Well DD doesn't seem to be working for me right now, but chances are hank, thats his DD account. Also the fact that he did say it was a joint animation might just mean the thing you linked to was the co-author. But i cant say for sure since it wont load the damn page.

Anyway. This ones taking me a while. Haven't done particles in a while, and on top of that I'm doing camera movements, so frames are taking forever to make. Trying to get back to my old ways. Here's hoping this is a start. Looks alright for now. I know for sure once I do the peak of the move. But I'm taking a break for now.

alright got the page working, and hank it's not even the same animation. The movements are completely different. It may use the same sticks but thats not a stretch since so many people share sticks.

All the moves in this animation
http://pivotup.com/files/jhf61q2v.gif

aren't even the same as this
http://yourimg.in/i/afocp9kz.gif

Not to mention the dimensions and lengths are different.
