Great, soft and fluid animation, but a lot of jagged lines. Still great job.

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 6/8/2008 05:56
exept that I find the face is turning too much, the animation is really great and in a good way overdone!

Nice,nice work..I miss flying arrows.

Animation looks nice. For the update, you should work on the quality of the pixel art.

Wow, that must've been hard.

Thanks everyone. In spite of its flaws, its cool that you got what I was trying to do with this piece. I'll be updating it next week.

Wow this is awesome! It's a shame it wasn't entered sooner, or else I would have totally voted for it :/

As has been said, it's a bit fast/jerky ... but i's dynamic!  I really like it!

Khris (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/8/2008 02:00
I saw this on pixelation and thought it rocked. The only thing I don't like is the way the legs are difficult to differentiate from each other. Oh, and I'd say it could be a bit more refined/cleaner/etc.

The movement itself is far from realistic, but it's clear that it's not trying to be and the strange head movement really adds to the character. Good stuff.

fantastic run animation

Jacky-Boy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 3/4/2008 14:51
Wha? This wasn't there when I voted? Awesome animation man, are you gonna carry on working on it after the comp? I'd love to see the animation smoothed out a bit.

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 3/3/2008 17:36
This is great but, I wish you would slow it down and add a couple more frames to smooth it out.

Qbi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2008 13:41
Awesome! Realy like it!

Salvage (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/3/2008 12:05
Naw, Lar, its cool I'm in ;)
Through no fault of my own it was added late though, so early voters wouldn't have seen it.
Thanks for the c+c

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 3/3/2008 09:52
No way! You missed the deadline?
Great animation, and i like the simplicity of the colours, although you could probably smooth some jaggedness out in places. Also looks like he's gunna get dizzy with all that head turning.

PresidentLeever (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2008 08:01
Wow, excellent animation! My only crit is that the head movement seems very exaggerated, especially if he's running into battle I think he would be more focused on what's in front of him.

Looking at the ref, it would've been cool to see him running past arrows hitting the ground around him.
