[WIP]Samurai Sword Lift Anim - C + C

on: May 03, 2009, 04:08:44 pm


This is a work in progress and I'm still a novice

Anyways, this is going to be a samurai / ninja guy unsheathing two swords from his back and finishing in a battle stance. There are still a couple of frames that I have to make (can't make them right now because I'm doing a project for school)

My own crit:
His legs kind of remind me of that of a horse.
His hair looks like a helmet.
His shirt (supposed to resemble a karate gi) is too bland.
I need to add a frame between the 6th and 7th frames to get the "slowing down" effect I guess
I need to take the gap out of his crotch in the first 5 frames ( or make it smaller so it looks like he's still moving but it doesn't suddenly disapear)

added another frame

sorry I'm working at a slow pace, I'm also programming the game engine at the same time and I'm just doing the art part of the game while I'm bored of the programming part or when something needs to get done.

This is not the most efficient way to animate : D

Going frame by frame works but as you might have noticed it's kinda hard to know where to go next.

Draw how you want him to look when he's battle ready and then do the frames in between! Good luck <:
