DBZ style, very lame I know. It was for fun. And what can I say, I'm a sucker for dragonball!

I'm not sure I see what's going on?
Maybe it's just because I'm old and don't know DBZ..

They are fighting, because in dragon ball Z they would do the kind of thing; two frame movements while in a fight(although not always).

Exactly, It was kind of an in-joke if you're a fan of DBZ. I made it for myself though, I had no intention of anyone seeing that , haha.

fuck no, if there is any more DBZ shit im going to kill somebody. Tip = Clouds aren't round, people aren't made out of sticks. The effort you've put into this looks extremely minimal.

I'm sure there is heaps of anime animation tutorials and guides and things like that. I'd say the problem is finding it because when you search anything anime related on the internet your flooded with tons of bad, shitty, clique drawings and hentai crap.

'cheap tricks that look awesome and takes minimum time'

I said earlier that this thread is not really a place for crits, rather 'practice'
Meaning, time spent becoming better, in this case, regarding animation.
The quote above is saddening in it's complete antithesis of what this thread
is about. That would be my crit

I suggest if it is imagined the point of DBZ is to spend 3 minutes making
something woefully rubbish then please start a thread possibly titled
'cheap shit no effort dbz anims'

As much as I love the art form, it is possible to take cartoon characters too seriously.

I'm not going to let one person dictate what type of anims are posted in the thread, therefore I think I'll make a few more just to spite you ;).

no shit, sherlock. Guess ill just spend a whole day drawing to perfection to test some movement then. Tip: stop being a fag.

@mickharris: keep you upper teeth static. Seriously, dont lecture ppl, you are annoying. Hey! you are supposed to be an animator, think you can make one of those anime fight loops? id really like you to make one, honestly!

Back to manga animation and fight scenes...well, ive tried searching youtube and google for how japanese do it or any reference but there was anything useful, id really like to know how those guys make their shit

It doesnt help if you arent even gonna try and just make a stick figure and then complain when people dont like it.

Mick I don't think that animation you posted earlier very well justifies you calling the shots on what animation really is. the "Houses" or whatever that was. It looked like a bunch of cardboard cutouts.

Haha, some practice examples were really nice. This practice was made some time ago. It's a skeleton for an animation I was trying to do.

Mick has more right to say what animation is than anyone who has posted in this forum.

Sure its animation, but its not animation that's beneficial toward artistic growth.
IMO if you made something and you haven't learned from it, you are wasting your time.
