erm...to tell u the truth, i dont really know bout animation principal, i dont have a formal study on that, lots of people asked me this and that, i dont really know what to explain, its a 'by heart' work
For the time you did this in this is great. I mean anyone can pick apart even the best. I have. But the best thing about this is if you put alot of time into it you could do wonders. You just need a goal. Story. You look like you do stuff to test it out and then get bored and go on to the next thing. If you really wanted this animation you would be tweaking it and going back to it over and over... I know it would be what ya wanted. I like it.
not bad. i think the keys and the extremes could be a little stronger. maybe push the poses a bit more. on the crouch down there's too long of a pause with just the static frame. made cushion that with some inbetweens of him really pushing down into the crouch and then exploding into the air. you can kinda cheat that a little by animating the hair some too.
btw, i'm an animation major, if you couldn't tell.
geez thanx, at last, a professional review, i dont have a formal study on animation , i dont have a basic and so all , but thanx 4 the comment, really appreciate it, i have sum (major) problem with sum angle on the character that i really cant overcome yet , bu till try my best to learn from expert , wish to learn more from u , thanx again
If you can find it, check out The Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams (the guy who animated Roger from Who Framed Roger Rabbit). It's got a lot of basic stuff on timing and pacing and pushing poses. Since you've got a solid style and grasp of anatomy you're kinda ahead of the curve.
yea, my friend used to offer me his book, ive seen the book several times, not yet decided to go into it, i recently learning a lot from tezuka animation school book, got 2 vol, human and animal, mine were human , thanx 4 d suggestion dude~
good to see you back at it. just a question about how many images do it take you to get your effect? and it that flash() or justv a basic video program and lay the images behind each other and push play?
hurm...the effect...mostly i used a lot of frames depending on the move, if its a fast move, i used not less than 3 frames, 1st i did the line test in flash since its so easy to handle, then after id got all the move as i want, ill export all the frames (image by image) n import em to photoshop WITH current animation size, then i inked n put em back in flash n automatically they'll be arranged in sequence n centered , i just got to edit lil of this n lil of that n its done! seriously its not so hard
Yeah man they've been great I look forward to them. I always been into the 2d thing but every time I see what your doing I get the itch to animate. I've done two semesters of traditional animating but it really wasn't that great of an experience for me. It seems like you can animate pretty quickly with flash which would be good since i'm pressed for time like everyone else. thanks for the info.
