The legs annoy me, they need more flow. Although that's just my style, I quickly whipped this up in 1 minute 24 seconds. (Yes, I timed myself.)

Then I would have to either add in another frame or two, and that would overease the arms.
Or I need to redo the legs, which would take time that I don't want waste doing that considering the fact that I probably wouldn't like it. But thanks :)

yes but i dunno what you call that...

Anyway, my laptop died so my progress on my animation is completely gone. Hopefully getting a new one by the end of the summer. I'm not animating on this computer but every once and a while i'll give some CC and the occasional comment.

Pivot isn't for MAC I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I do know a program that is useable on MAC though, which is some sort of upgrade of pivot, yet a complete new program.

It's called stykz. Search for it.

Wow that looks great, I looked at it thought: What the... where is the second arm? Then I read what you wrote and ended up pretty much watching the animation about 10 times looking for the second arm. Anyway, that's some pretty nice animation. Definitely unique, not your generic stick fight or movements. Keep it up! You're getting good. Just one thing, I didn't like how he fell down.

You've got to make it in the program and then colour it.
Anyway:

forget making it look pretty, for now you should look up basic animation tutorials. And make the frame rates faster. Don't make anything else until you've studied up and put them into practice.

Don't be so de-motivated, it isn't that good. It's great sure but it's pretty simple to. Just animate for fun not because of competition.

Yup. Although competitive spirit gives good motivation and inspiration on improvement, it's not needed to keep on animating. Just remember to try not psyching yourself out just cause you think someones better then you in animation skill. Some guys on here have been doing this stuff day in day out for years. 100s maybe even 1000s of pivoting hours under their belt. It's takes experience and mistakes to learn and get better. We got guys on here that are like that, but you know what? We all did it for fun. We originally all did it for fun. We did it so much, as a side effect we got good at it lol. Then it stopped being about fun, and started being about being ranked, then DD came and blah blah blah you know the rest.
