Beginner.

First things first. The movement trails were definitely not necessary to use. Try to better your movement THEN consider those trailes to complement your movements. As of now, the poses AND movements are stiff, and when the beam happened, one leg abruptly snapped out of its place. Flow also seems to be a issue because at the charge up, the stickpan stopped all of a sudden.

All in all, the effect looked good and footplacement was mostly good, but you still need to work on them basics.

It's honor to be EVEN in the beginner rank, because I thought I won't fit even here... Thanks for the advises. (smile I hope that someday I will get even Elite... (confused

you did the movements pretty good, but at some parts of the sword fight it is very obvious that the back of the red stick is stiff, and at other times the black sticks back would be stiff. the foot placement is pretty solid man. but you need to work on your footwork or where the feet are supposed to be placed. also before the red stick retaliates from the attack of the black stick his leg kinda goes shakey.

overall you did good buddy, keep practicing.

us beginners dont improve by doing nothing you know :>

Wow, thanks. Uhm, yeah, I saw that, but I had other stuff to do and I didn't have enough time to edit it before posting here, so... (confused Yah, footwork was never my power, but I guess I'll be able to do something good with it. Ah, yeah, I noticed that. Just forgot to edit it. (cheesygrin
Thanks, I will! (smile
Yeah, I know. It's tough, but we have to keep going. Am I right? (cheesygrin

Its a bit shaky on the first one, and im not gonna say that u need to work on foot placement much, its not a very big deal. The animation looks a little stiff too but youre getting there :3
ShadowLith: 450 frames
Katana guy vs big sword dude: 84 frames
pyro vs setto: i think its like 890 frames or something idfk

So much mistakes... Well, it could be worse.
*Sigh* I wish I had more motivation to work on it... So much hobbies, so little time...
Thanks for the cristism though. You're one of them good ones motivating me to become better. (smile

Try moving all the body parts, and fix your poses. I recommend you study real human movements. and keep spacing consistent. ;3 Gl
