Re: Skip animation

Hey Peng,

That's some awesome animation. The only thing I want to comment on is the actual fall and grab of the bar. It just looks like his arms would have been dislocated being pulled back so far. Maybe if he grabed with one arm and rested defeated like he did and as his determination reawakens he can take control and pull himself up to two then blast off! The launch is amazing by the way, and I love the strength of the ending pose. Stan Lee would be proud.

Great work, keep it up,
Max

Re: Skip animation

The only thing that strikes me weird about his actions is that he looks up before he falls over the edge. Why would he be looking up when he should obviously be looking for how to fix his fall, or seeing the ledge to know he should grab it.

Otherwise, all nice. big_smile

Re: Skip animation

Hey Newsboy,

I can't speak for Peng, but I think that he looks up in a effort to pull his weight back to avoid falling. It also adds to the suspence right before the fall, and helps complete the line of the body.

To Peng

I was thinking about the way he grabs the bar and I think a good thing to try, if you can, is to try placing your hands somewhere where you don't have to hang but you can straighten your arms and pretend, like holding on (the top of a shower, the back of a chair (you could stand on your knees), hopefully a railing that most resembels a bar.)
I think that a more natural way to hold the bar would be thumbs facing in, fingers wrapping facing forward, and the palm between the bar and the wall.
Try it out, see what you think. There's no greater teacher then experience.

Keep it up,
Max

Re: Skip animation

The looking up part makes sense to me, it's the final leap I have issues with.  It's just far to quick to really get a sense of weight outta of it.  I'd suggest some more build up to it definitely.
