(WIP) Jump/Block animation

on: May 03, 2020, 07:34:10 am
I'm getting some eyes on this in early stages because I intend to finish it soon. Don't mind the ghost image, I know it's there.

What it is: A basketball player jumping high to block a shot overhead.

My issue: This isn't quite getting the punchiness I'm trying for.



My plan is to put some twist in the body on the "hit" of the blocking motion. And while the landing sticks, I'm not sure how I'm going to make it feel more alive.

Thanks for any input.

It's starting to come together. I don't think I've ever manually blurred in an animation before, but it's not half bad here. I'm happy with the upward movement and swiping motion. The landing needs more attention. I'm hoping a bit of polish smooths out that snap to the idle frame.

EDIT: I'm alright with this outcome I think.


EDIT2: Some more tinkering
