Hello! I really like your design! I think your timing is too slow by half. Sped up the timing and made a small change to the punch.



There's bit of anticipation to his wind back. Almost as if he/she is telegraphing the attack, giving the player a small window to dodge if fast enough.

I'm sorry if you didn't want me to edit your design. I realized I should have gave you my comment first then makes an edit if you wanted. Anyway, I think you need to speed up the overall timing of the animation and pause as the character winds up his punch  ;D

Nah i dont mind ^^ I dont treat my pices like little special snowflakes (thats why i post it here)

Thanks for the edit! seems way better...i think i shoud make the arm look a little like moving from back to front to give it a more realistic animation.

It needs to make itself smaller in anticipation of the punch and it needs to stretch further as it launches the uppercut because right now with the angle it looks like it's punching itself.

Uh
Bit of corruption there

Criticism though: I honestly think you need to rework the animation entirely here.
The movement simply doesn't read as an uppercut.
Try looking at some of lil mac's animations from smash 4 for ideas, try to take note of how he shifts his weight to drive the strike! Good punches utilize the whole body, from the legs to the shoulders.
PSA: use imgur

I think a normal punch fits better because this enemy shoud fly towrds you with a punch...then this animation woud fit...right?

Not really, as the enemy doesn't lead with their arm and there's still no force behind it.

What's the perspective of this game? Is it from above, a side scroller, or...?

Its top-down...a simple Shoot'em up.

Sure...force..right...but what do you mean with leading he arm?
