Have not touched Pivot since 2008~, Lets see how this goes!
NEW ATTEMPT AT CHANGING STYLE
My Own Criticism: Testing some flow, I can definitely see a difference, it looks a little to fast though, not sure if I should lower frame rate from 21? Help me with CNC as I am new to this style (as you can see from previous animations)
WORK IN PROGRESS: Black Stick got power
My Own Criticism: I love this, I am sure there are flaws, I watched some other animators movements and I tried to change my style slightly and make it a mix between my style and others, not easing my movements AS much as I normally do, turned out okay! I REALLY SUCK at reactions, sticks getting hit, sticks fighting sticks, so I still need to practice, so I will probably add onto this with more fighting so I can get some practice with it
I like this, after the screen phases out and goes to the punching bag it gets a bit rougher, I don't like the last hit on the punching bag to much, where he double punches it, I feel like he was in the air for to long at that point.
Upside Down Kick test
My Own Criticism: First kick looks flawless, It took a ton of editing to get the push off the ground (after the kick) and flip landing down to a reasonable level, still not happy with that part though.
Smoke Tests, Effects tests (Not Finished)
My Own Criticism: The floor/grass gets messed up at the start, some movements still stiff but getting better! The fence scene looks a bit off to me, I really like the end scene when he hits the rocks, I miss using trails on sticks, may do this more often now.
Running with Flip Test - LOOP -
My Own Criticism: I actually really like this, I think the tail was annoying and not done perfectly, and a few things were stiff, but overall the look I was going for was accomplished
Multiple Sticks - Ended it early
My own Criticism: first time moving multiple sticks, I liked beginning punch, second guys back slam was not to bad, but the final kick I was not happy with, so I ended this animation early. This video was going to be only a run test animation, but I continued it to see how I could make the middle black stick a vocal point of being punched, meh.
My own Criticism: I liked the first punch, I need more Kick practice
First Animation back / Movement Test
My own Criticism: I don't like the leg on the last kick, slightly stiff
First Fight Animation back / Test
My own Criticism: Fast, not as smooth as I would like, Camera shaking could be better, The effects are okay but are there to hide movements I am not comfortable doing on pivot yet.
