Wow specter, your getting really good now.
I really like the movements after the flash of the red arrow and before when the blue guy's hands raise. Those are really good.
Oh wait, that was my part. Lol... im kidding, im kidding. That part was actually one of my not-proudest part in the joint.

Real talk tho:
I really think your one of the next intermediates Specter. I seriously learned some stuff from jointing with you.
Make a long animation with multiple stuff using your best skills, and im sure you'll become intermediate. You might want to try something other than acrobatics first though to expand your horizon.

Honestly, I suck at any percise-detail cnc. I can do big picture ones cnc pretty good tho.

Haha that was hilarious, also I think that my second part wasnt my best part by far...
Thanks for the encouragement I'll try to make something long after finals. I already have a good idea

Pasted from Animator.net. I'll come back and give you some new Critique on your joint with secret.

Run Tribute

Ok, overall it's quite nice. There's not much wrong with it at all. The little bounce he does after he lands etc is cool. But i think overall the movements can look stiff in areas. Don't be afraid to loosen the limbs up a bit, moving most of them every frame. Your avatar is actually a nice example of this, very loose and dynamic.

From frames 17-20 the poses seem to be a little off to me. I believe his knees should be closer to his head because the flip itself moved at speeds that would've warranted the tighter tuck. The forward momentum also looks like it was stunted during this movement as well. I know the camera is supposed to be following him as he moves but i would suggest moving him forward just a little bit as he's mid flip until he hits the ground. This way it doesn't stunt the momentum as much.

Everything after he hits the ground is ok up until he hits his first hurdle. He's quite stiff as he jumps onto it. I would say, to add a little more anticipation in the form of a subtle bend in the knee before he jumps. But because it was such a small jump i don't think it's needed. Instead i would have him crouch and touch as he hits the hurdle, adding a little dynamism and fixing the stiff look he had whilst jumping.

When he meets his second hurdle, he seems to become completely static for a moment. The camera speed also doesn't help this at all. Like i said above, this is another case were the movement can be helped by making it a little more dynamic as opposed to static. As he connects with the hurdle, he should slip down it a little before pulling himself up. Physically this should happen anyways as his weight would be too heavy to just land completely static, he should definitely slip down a little bit.

I've highlighted the above points and animated them to give you a better idea of how it should look. Ofcourse it's roughly animated but it should give you a good idea i think.

http://www.shuniu.in/s/u/f/1393571340.piv

The second jump in from the side of the camera was fine with the exception of the momentum. As he comes in from the side his forward momentum is cut off too quickly. I would ease into a stop rather than jumping to it a little more. But when he lands everything is "A" ok.

Keep at it man, your acrobatics are really impressive

Wow dude that was aweosme I really liked that, the double kick was actually great and the movements overall were smooth and fluid.
The only thing that was wrong is how the guy landed after the kick, something with the head and legs just seemed wrong and weird to me, but really good animation.

Glad you guys liked.

@Amir yeah I was trying to have him look up so he knew to run from the box, guess that wasnt conveyed well enough.

I really like the idea of the box fall animation,
the one criticism I have is how you animate your back, the first jump (when he jumps on the box) does not display the movements you would expect in that situation, where as the back is pretty stiff.

The collab/joint animation, I am not sure which parts is yours, some parts look really good while others are some what stiff in movements, when he is flipping near the end of the animation and does a couple flips and falls, i really like that part! Before that part it is a little rough!

Keep it up, just work on your stick stiffness, remember everything usually moves in momentum with one another!

I like that you're sort of animating some things that people don't normally animate.

That creativity.

Good job.
