the death is good -, but perhaps could be more effective if he stayed on his knees a little longer, and wobbled slightly backward before he falls forward. at the very least i think it would benefit if the arms/shoulders were shifted back...

actuall now that im zooming in, if you wanted to keep it as is, id say that at the part where he supports himself with his arms, it would be good to indicate a little elbow bending before the arm straightens out again, until he finally collapses forward. that way you get that sense of weight in the arms. the elbows would be catching the weight in this action, not the shoulders.

I think the most disturbing thing about his death is that his legs suddenly disappear.

[edit] Update:

[edit 2] Update 2: Made the head bounce on the end. I was trying to make more of a thumping feel when he hits the ground.

His shoulders probably shouldn't be that spread, he's blocking the downward/forward momentum so the arms should go more in front of him. Still looks great, though.

Haha lookin' good. It gets more and more painful looking with each iteration. You need to make a version where he just explodes into organs and bones upon final collapses. COME ON

He should fall down like he does every time you die, with a 1/100 chance of exploding into a mess of gore after his fall. That would be awesome.
And I agree, the death animation is getting better and better. I like the little bounce his head does when his face smacks the ground now. Makes it very clear he's dead, or at least unconscious.

Mathias: Haha some day.

Working on a new area, La'more woods. (the outskirts of the town he was in before)



And here is Windstead, a city that is on a mountain... only place that the windy idle animation could really fit :P


(obviously this is not the whole city...)

You can Calibrate your monitor? How do you do that?

Not only can, but must!

Seriously, if/when you do critical work (pro) you'll have to invest in a calibration device (starts around 300$, I'd think).
Meanwhile, try to find an online calibration pattern (just a neutral ramp, you check that all values appear different). I've seen some before, forgot where.

Also, awesome job so far ^_^
