awesome animation!! It would be madness if there were some proyected shadows from the cape to his own armor, but the animation for me is just perfect!! so real.
Have you used some rotoscopy technique or its all in your head?
I'll be your favorite number 100 on this animation.
There is a green blink on his shoulder at the end.
This is so cool. It almost looks rotoscoped. Freakin awesome.
It might be a good idea to take out a bunch of frames in the middle to emphasize the power of the strike, like this: http://www.herculeaneffort.com/upload/protecteur_l2.gif
I wouldn't recommend mixing framerates in the middle of the animation, either. I would use that if I wanted to hold a frame, so it would all be multiples of a base framerate.
