One of my first spell animations for Duelyst, I hope I could get somewhere close to the amazing quality of Squirrell Squid and the other spells/ spell animators!

Check out Duelyst if you haven't already! The beta for the game has just been released, I know I'm excited!

Thank You!

By never allowing the fingers to extend upwards, you lose the potential to really create a snap contrast - the hand open and the hand closed share too similar a silhouette. Otherwise, the animation is really nice.

Thanks everyone!

The animation is 22 frames, played at 15 frames per second!

How many frames is this? A bazillion?

Incredible smooth animation, well done!

I cannot even.

What a mind-blowingly smooth animation!

Very crisp animation. Love it!

Thank you all for your kind comments!

I agree, the ripple effect is a bit weak. Sand rushing into the middle would of been a good idea, thanks eishiya!

Ripples at the end are, as said before, somewhat disappointing to watch. I also think the thumb looks strange - it straightens a little too much right before the fist clenches, making it look like the thumb has broken. Amazing readability with the five (i think - analyzing it says that this only has one color!) colors used, and a very strong animation overall.

Love the animation! Would love to see a whole movie in this style.

I agree with pretty much all the comments before mine. Great animationd and timing, the material reads very well, but the ripples at the end are a bit disappointing. Have you thought about making it a bit like a drop animation, where the sand rushes in to fill the void in the middle, causing a small temporary swelling? Like the last frames here, for example.

This makes me almost regret not having visible magic in a project of mine xP

Wow sweet! Great hand, sand effect, and timing! Well done!

Nice! The only thing I would improve is the "ripple" effect toward the end, may need some smoothing frames before disappearing. :D

Nice this could be the new animation for the weekly challenge.
