An animation for my ongoing video game project. The character design changed slightly since my last submission ;)

(Note: Rotation was used on some of the frames... Some consider this to be a "dirty" tool)

Wow! Awesome animation! Looks very concrete, you can almost feel the weight moving around.

Favorited for the great use of motion blur and weight, and also for how the character counterbalances the sword with his legs and arm.

Great choice of keyframes and great use of motion trails too. Please, more, more, more !

I don't understand how this hasn't gotten more replies. It's a great example of a good, effective game animation that reads well, has punch and is as interesting the 100th time as it was the 1st(I know because I've been starting at this for 5 minutes now). This truly stands out from the majority of animations shown here at pixeljoint which are heavy in secondary motions like hair blowing, clothing rippling, body jiggling, etc and, but are always completely lacking in the primary motion that the animation is supposed to be about.

Please keep posting these animations.

I've wanted to play this game since the first couple sprites you made, good to see it's not forgotten.

very dynamic, I want to play ...

Looks great as usual, but you could have at least cleaned up that rotated sword.

I've used rotation tools a fair number of times myself...

Awesome slash combo.
