Hey Don!

I think it's a great start, but I feel like his sneak should be a lil' slower and right before he pops out of the corner to shoot, there needs to be a lil' anticipation. The kick back from the shot is a lil slow---> I think you can go faster.

All this and I'm no animator.....

Take it all for a grain of salt.

chubie-tastic!

Oh and since I'm nit-picking it to the point of annoyance---> when he hits the wall his hands and feet should slam against it too----> so says the force....

Great Observations Sam! I went back and gave this one some more love and tried to take into account all the good feedback you gave me. I hope when you see it now you are pleased. Im pretty happy where it went.

Hi Don

I visit your blog all the time. In fact I must confess its on my RSS newsreader.

I think you have enough of an antic when he creeps around the corner, as far as the timing goes.
But what stands out to me is he cross steps into the open. The antic would be made much stronger if your character used the leading foot to step into the open first, THEN spinning the back one around to get into that good shooting pose you already have. This might lengthen the antic but I don't think that would hurt.

Keep up the good work

Don Dixon! Stop posting movie files directly into your blog or I will fly to Chicago and kick you in the balls! I can't visit your blog without crashing my laptop because it tries to simultaneously load 47 quicktimes.

And I do enjoy visiting your blog cuz there's always great stuff.
