Thought I post some animations I been working on. Here I put a preview gif and a deviantart link for a larger view.
Rose Swing Test
Shrug Flash Test
Walk Cycle Test
Walk Cycle Test 2
Blush/Fear reaction test
Rocket Launcher Aim test
I'm new here too. Your drawings are pretty solid, but the thing that seems odd to me is how 'stiff' they feel. The expressions in the faces seem unnatural (on the two with the dude from Bleach) considering the actions going on in them. The timing also feels oddly slow in them.
On the other hand, the rocket launcher one is really good, timing wise, but the motion still feels a bit mechanical...everything moves too perfectly, too robotic. More like they're animatronics doing those movements rather than people.
May I recommend acting out and video taping those actions then rotoscoping them? You'll find a range of movements, poses, and expressions you never expected to find and it'll lend a bit more naturalness to your movements.
I know rotoscoping gets a bad name, and I'm not suggesting do that for all work or finished work, but as a means of discovery and study, it's priceless.
Not bad, although I think you ought to look up Cartoon Animation by Preston Blair and study the contents of it. Plus, there's a lot more you can learn from old cartoons from the '30s up till the '50s.

This still needs works. The hair needs flexibility, some more frames here and there, and the face needs works. I still need to add the roses.

Still need some more frames in some areas and the face isnt done. This is a follow up to the "Reaction Test" after this character was blown up by a rocket. If I do another animation based on this story, I will need to redesign this character because his hair is insanely hard to control.

Need to work on my smoke but I dont see its worth testing much. This is the last scene for my WIP movie and now I need to compile all my rough clips to see if it looks good.
Final Scene Test
Full View here.
This is a redo of Rose Swing Test shown here .
While I was compiling all my clips, the original did not provide me the effect I wanted so I redid it. The face isnt done and the rose still needs some work.
Rose Swing Test V2

A redo of Rocket Aim Test found here or here for full view http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d520svu. The original has been bugging me because it felt too stiff, too much movement, and arkward. I decided to make it simplier by doing only two movements. I still need to fix the face and give some movement to the hair. The blast still needs work but I am compiling the all the clips to see how the whole film would appear first. Here is the 2nd version here and the full view is on this link http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5l5efd.
My previous punch test needed ton of frames shown here or full view here http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4xxfbo so I thought this is worth posting. Its a slow motion punch in the face. Once I add sound, the slow motion would make more sense. Redo is shown here and full view here http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5q9p34
Havent been posting for awhile and been really unmotivated so heres an animation I created.
Full view here http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/art...t-v2-354938062.
Its a cleaned up version of the original reaction test shown in the 1st post and I also change the ending pose.
I have compiled all my animation clips into one movie. There is still a lot that needs to be done though. The movie still needs color, backgrounds, music, and better sound effects. You can view it here on my youtube:
Finally completed this animation. Wow I can't believe this 1 min and 44 sec animation took so long to make. I literally did all animation, sound design, and music. This is a huge change from my previous work. Thank you for watching this animation everyone and hope you'll like it.
All animation and music is done by me (KhanhCPham)
