  • Yves Perera (shinsaku)

    a bit slow but good enough.

  • Matt Dickun (az93)

    I think the movements can be more exaggerated.

  • crew
    Wayne Dixon (waylow)

    Good work tanky.

    @Phil has some great notes, (especially on the frame counter haha)

    This is looking like it is in a good place to move forward.
    The biggest thing that sticks out to me is timing of the lift off.
    You will need to really speed that up when you move on to spline.

    But I say, listen it Phil and keep going. :)

    Hey Tanky, good job the plan is all there. A few things to refine for when you go to spline.
    (quick note, do your best to remember a frame counter, it wil make it easier to critique your work)
    On your 8 and 9th pose try to bring him down a little further. Just to exaggerate that down anticipation before the jump. I would remove poses 11 thru 15 and poses 17 thru 19. Right now those poses are very evenly spaced, when you go into spline its going to cause a very slow looking jump. Think of this jump like the bouncing ball exercise, the spacing starts out far apart and then gets really tight at the top of the arc then starts spacing out further and further as gravity takes over.
    Pose 20 try to point his head in the direction he was coming from at the top of the arc. He's very straight up and down right now.
    Becarful at pose 24 his head is very far screen right and its reading to me that he's going to take a very big step in that direction, but then only takes a little one.
    Its a very solid pass tanky, just a few more tweaks and you got it. Keep it up! :)
