That's some wicked neato stuff, I like lightning bolt 13 because it seems to dissipate more realistically than the others.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8waV48897o4 shows some ultra low-motion shots of lightning bolts, and it looks like they spread out, then flash bright, then just sort of thin out until they disappear.

I do have to say though, those bolts are pretty fluid which makes them appealing to watch.

very very stylish. i like that a lot.

yeah 13 my the only one i made "lightning" like. the rest are just vague interpretations of electricity, or a stylized twist on lightning.

that's a good practice. you might want to work on your timing a bit more. but i like that you gave it a feel of transferring force and mass on the bounce

Animating the individual parts inside tweens is a nightmare, but the satisfaction once a sequence is done is worth it!
This character needs a name, too. He took me about 2 weeks, roughly, to animate.

Interesting style... is he going to be used for a flash or is he just a little animation test?

I want it to be a series. A good series, with a polish similar to Zeural's "Escape from Nevera". This all depends on how many I can get to help out, voice actors, sound/music producers. I'm being horribly ambitious, but all ideas start somewhere.

Think of a city similar to Saints Row 3 except with real consequences. You're not just some omnipotent being, there's villains in a city with no heroes. Their motivations all different, none of them being "to control the world/city". The chaos they create is just a given.

it appears to have a form change on the roll but its very well done. Animating strict geometric shapes tend to drive me nuts because even the smallest detail error can put it off.
