self-rejected animations -- clip2 by oomizuao self-rejected animations -- clip2 by oomizuao
I can see a lot of things in this one that could be improved... But it was my first attempt to animate someone running, so.. :shrug:
I wanted to show it to you guys anyways.. ;)

Everything looks absolutely fantastic! Really great movement on the clothes and hair. The secondary motion from the tail is good. The long strides and wide arms are great at showing the speed of the running. There is ONE thing though that hurts this....and it is the fact that the head doesn't move....at all. When people walk the head bobs up and down. When people are running this bobbing motion is even MORE exaggerated. That's my only critique. Otherwise this is a job well done I think.

Wow this is great! I can't believe this is a first try!
You probably already know this, but it may look even better if he was moving up and down too.

Listening to Hello by Evanescence and watching the animation work well together.

the movement is great
however
coming from what my teacher that i had over the summer said 
make the pelvis (or ass) really move up and down with the weight
but still
the animation really is great
very smooth!!
look up walking sequences on google
they are awsome to us as refrence

I think this is good, but for the speed of the background, his legs and arms should be faster, to make it seem like he's actually running at the speed your background suggests. I really like this though.

Really nice^^
But it should be his whole body moving though, not just the arms and legs, but his hips, sholders and chest as well... so it looks a bit stiff and unatural.
Great job anyways! : D

Very smooth movements.
THe only critique I would have is that, while Spikes whole body is moving, his head, doesn't move an inch, his neck seems almost glued in one position. Moving it just a little bit, would be better in my opinion.

I'd say it's a great first attempt! I don't know anything about making animations, but it looks like this took a long time to animate. :)

Actually, it's fantastic for a for a first attempt! You animated the body very well. I particularly like the attention paid to the arms. I think the ears need some movement, but I'm not sure since I don't have good knowledge of wolf ears compared to mote floppy ones such as the American Terrier Pit Bull. (However that's worded. lol)

Still, I think this is great! Are you taking an animation class or are you self taught?

This looks really good for a first runcycle! ' u ' Like you said, there is some stuff that could improve but the poses looks really good and he looks consistent all the way through which is hard! Good job. ^ u ^
Some quick critique would be to make him bounce up and down a bit more while he is running.

oomizuao Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks a lot for the critique and feedback! :hug: I agree that some bouncing would help, and a lot of other things that I've noticed as well (like how he doesn't blink at all, for instance... :p ). But I appreciate your comment! :la: I've seen the animation clips you've posted lately, and they're amazing! :o  Can I ask, did you use a reference for any of them? I'm quite stubborn in the way that I try my best to avoid using references (which is stupid, I admit), but if using references for animating helps improve one's animations, then I'll definitely give it a try :)

Well I don't really use ref all that much. But sometimes it's worth doing some studies for the kind of animation you're doing before you actually start. Look at cartoons or real people how they move and make some sketches, really note down those small but significant movements. ' u '
Watching these in slowmotion is also really educational. For the latest animation I did I actually looked at water in slowmotion to figure out how to animate the splashes when the girl/boy jumps on a puddle.

I'm really excited to see more of your animations someday. I really think you're doing a great job so far. ^ u ^ I can recommend the book "The animator's survival kit" by richard williams if you're interested in more details how to animate . It's fun and reaaaally interesting to read.
