This took way too long to make.
Runtime 2 seconds.
26 drawings of Max.

I'm wondering if I should animate moreso instead of drawing still pictures though.

Somehow, I just could imagine this would be a tumblr thing somewhere. (Even though I hate tumblr due to being so frustrating and confusing, I am obsessed with Marysuefacepalm.)

It is so confusing. And I can't ever find the replies to the things I say.
Not to mention disturbing pictures put up there.

Hehe, I know, animation just take so ridiculeously long to complete, isn't it a shame?

I think you should try exagerate the extreme poses a bit more, so that the movement has more impact, especially if you're going for "cartonesque" animation.

Yeh animation takes a ridiculous amount of effort, time, and correcting.

but yeh I totally agree! I gotta exaggerate it more.
I animated for 3 years just for the fun of it, or something. So I was always about quantity and not quality. cutting corners everywhere. So I'm still getting used to taking days on just 2 seconds of animation.

This is pretty good. One suggestion to make it even more impactful, is to have the head delay with some follow through. It all kind of gets there at the same time making it seem a little stiff. By having the head lag back behind the body when it goes forward would cause it to snap forward on the last few frames, having it get there last and being more of an impact. If you acted out the motion, you'd probably notice that your head would do that. This is pretty funny though.

Your right.
I did the head desk myself just now and realized the head has delay from the body.
I should've done it in real life to understand the motion before I animated it. I just didn't think too.
But now I'll make sure to do that all the time.

Thanks for the advice! It certainly opens my eyes to see how important all the little aspects of movement is. :D

Very smooth movement, I love his face, and the way his head squishes just slightly when it hits the desk.
You're great at animating, good job!

It looks kinda stiff when he lifts his head up. Maybe its because the torso and the head is facing up at the same time. As the torso is arching back halfway, you can lift the head when the backs goes into the halfway point. The slam motion is awesome. Good job.

I should pay more attention to the little subtle things to flow and motion.
Your'e animations are amazing and I wouldn't doubt you know ALOT about animating.
Do you think the next time I animate I could contact you and you could give some suggestions/critique before I fully animate it?

I'd say that's pretty good time. I have yet to make a fully complete cartoon (animated smoothly with dialogue and sound FX), but in my case I am burdened by Bi-Polar Disorder and having my concentration spread out amongst one immense project.

I am effectively one person working on a massive saga involving a myriad of characters and adventures spanning several series...its a lot of work.

What's the message you intend to portray with the series?

Or is it pointless beat up the baddies save the day kinda thing. :iconherpderpplz:

If an overall message was to be derived from my collective stories, I guess it would be something to the like of "Imagination is the key to a life of endless adventure", but my work has a myriad of messages too numerous to mention here.

There is definitely beating bad guys and saving the day, but there's a whole lot more stuff involved than just that. Honestly, my series "The Toon 5some", can easily be seen as a blend of slapstick Looney Tunes humor, heart-warming Disney-like wonder, DC/Marvel comics style action adventure, and even mature themes like in "The Simpsons", "Family Guy", and "South Park".

It's a very diverse storyline. :)
