Pivot Points! - [11/05/16, Moved]

Welcome!
The whole aim of the Pivot Points business is giving you some extra satisfaction from animating. When you complete an assignment, you will be awarded with the corresponding amount of PP.
More PP equals bragging rights, so make sure you're at the top of the leaderboard!
To submit an assignment, simply post your animation in this thread.

Got complaints, suggestions or simply questions? I'm all ears!

Image


Update as of 11-May-2016: Pivot Points has been moved to the Freestyle section and is being run by Chris. Go here instead.

Update as of 30-Apr-2015: Resubmit any animations that were submitted between the 23rd of March and 25th of April. Animations and posts were lost in the two week site roll-back and I need the animations again to add the points. You won't get your points back unless you resubmit.

Update as of 14-Mar-2015: This thread is now being managed by me (Jojishi). Thanks TBM for all the hard work. I'll manage this the best I can.

Update as of 02-May-2014: All old updates were by Rez/Lush, I (TBM) will be updating and moderating this thread from now on.


Update as of 12-Jun-2013: I'm back into moderating the thread. Sorry for the absence. Hope to see this thread's activity kickstart again.
-----
NOTE: Just so I won't spam the thread, from now on I'll post less so often to acknowledge the animators that I have added their points for the submissions. Therefore, check the leaderboard frequently! I shall be updating it as soon as it is humanly possible.

Image

*Pivot 4 is going to be the default version used by every animator who posts an animation on this thread;
*ANYONE can participate!
*Posting old animations is not allowed, nor continuations of old animations;
*It is generally not allowed to do the same assignment more than once, though there are a few exceptions;
*You can overwrite an old assignment with a new one, if you feel the new version could earn you extra PP;
*Quality over quantity!

Look at the spoiler under assignments, they list plenty of things you can animate. Once your done post the animation in this thread and your name will be added to the leaderboard with how many pivot points you've earned.

You need to make an animation specifically for this thread and post it.
Then you get a point. :)

Edit: You need to put effort into it.

A walk loop is a lot easier than a centered origin animation and yet it is worth more points?
