Dude! That is epic... Gotta wonder if you'll ever do more animating, eh?

Haha that's about the extent of my animating abilities... It's more like Post-it animations haha

Ahh, I remember post-its... Those were fun. :XD: One teacher made us do an essay that was ten pages (I wound up doing 25 because of how interested I got), and in the bottom right corner, I did a doodle. 2nd page went to top right. Third to top left. Bottom left, bottom right, etc. If you looked through the pictures right, you'd see me hitting my head on a wall repetitively from writing so much. Hahaha!

Hey, I just noticed something. Is Dohi left-hand dominant? *gasp*

Ambidextrous =]
He usually uses his right hand though...
I think of drawings as mirrors usually, and my right is their left lol =P
I oftem mix up hands.

Yes, ambidextrous would be the easiest to draw, wouldn't it? =P Nora is ambidextrious, and Kornith has taught himself. Besides those two characters, I try to make a character seem one-hand dominant. It's difficult to remember, though ><

Yeah.. Norin is right handed. And so is Hido, although he dual-wields. He usually used the left hand to block and atacks with the right =]

Not bad but it isn't an animation at all, you just used 4 drawings with long pauses.

lol.. if u wanted it smoother.. =3=;;.. it'd take hell lot of a job... theres 24 frames a second... and each scene is held for 2 frames.. so thus it'd take u... about 12 drawings? jst to make a stupid second... =3=;;.. our lecturers made us draw like 50+pages just to animate 2 seconds... gawd were we pissed.. lol

That's very good actually, especially for your first try at traditional animation, though it is a little jerky in its movements. More frames would solve that though.

I'm planning on doing something with waaaaay more frames.

Of course watching this makes me think of Kamen in a sort of Fire Emblem-esque light with the game's various classes and their unique animations... xD I love watching battle animations -- and it's traditional at that! D:

Awesome. :heart:

The longer I watch it, the more I can't help but stare at that tail... xD Oh, the little things...

The tail is one of my favorite parts of them =D

And I was inspired a bit by fire emblem moves =P

Too jumpy, you need in-between figures while in each swing

It's kind of hard to tell though when you are drawing it.
I'll be sure to keep it in mind next try.

*sympathetic nod* The closes I've come to an animation is a flip-book I made out of my grammar pages. A stick figure slowly took form.. ony to have his head explode.
I had to finish it somehow! 0o
