So cool

I really like the gif. So smooth <33 

AirStyle (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/7/2016 19:50!!!  VERY well done!

Thanks! Not for Duelyst, but my client was looking for something with a similar style. Most characters are a bit smaller, but this one, being larger, is closer to the Duelyst size, too.

Duelyst? If not, the similarities are striking, though I do say that's a good thing. It's not often I start playing a competitive game for the pixel work alone.

This is super smooth. I love the animation when it raises its arms, really powerful and conveys a nice feeling of reverence.

fluid animation

This is really fantastic!

Haha that's funny, I was flattered by the idea that maybe it helped. I love your animation work, and really like the color choices you use.

Joecreates (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/1/2016 13:39

Thanks :) I'd actually started this piece and had the main motion down a couple of months ago and had that animation on my twitter. I noticed the similarity too when you posted it. Thats not to say its not inspiring work, though. Ive certainly taken influence from your FX work more generally. xD

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 6/1/2016 12:43

nice work.. seems similar to this  which would be flattering if it helped inspire your animation. ;)

I really like your intro, how the smoke spirals up. Also the motion blur is great but I think a slight speed increase per frame would do this animation a lot of justice. Motion blur seems too always make more sense when the frame rate is faster

This is witchcraft (by which I mean it's absolutely amazing). I'm gonna study the hell out of this.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/1/2016 05:58

That's really really nice as usual !

Really cool love it

Strazt (Level 5 Werewolf) @ 6/1/2016 01:50

Love this. So smooth.
