I'm gonna critique this from an artist point of view first. At first glance it's cute and the story is clear, but if you look at it mor...

Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thank you to all for all the awesome comments on my recent animations.  I didn't think traditional animation had a fan base anymore but with all the support I got recently it's something I definitely want to pursue more.  I've always been a follower of the traditional ways of animation and it makes me happy seeing that there are others out there that still love it too.  I will be continuing to add to my sword fighting series as I want it to be one long short.  I'm already working on part 3!  By the end I hope to add at least lineart BG's and more effects.  I don't think I'll color it as it will take a long time in Flash and I always liked the black and white of pencil tests'. 

 For those of you out there in school or who also have dreams of becoming animators; don't be afraid to pursue your ambitions.  The industry may look like it's favoring CG animation right now but there will always be a place for traditional animation.  Do pencil tests in your free time just for the fun of it, you'll be surprised what you can come up with when you're not bogged down by a deadline or trying to stay on someone else's model.  Animation is supposed to be fun, so let loose and remove all your limitations.  Of course if you want to become a better animator the best advice I can give is to practice, practice, practice.  You can't play piano without practice, and the same goes for animation.  The more you practice the better you'll become. 

Thank you again for all your support and I promise you there will be more animations coming from me soon!

Sideshow Mel has no shirt, and he is laying down on the ground, and looking at the moon in the night

Hey! Great animation techniques! I'm trying to learn the art myself, do you have any references or tips (specially about smooth movement) for beginners? Thank you, and keep rocking the world!
Hey there, thanks for the comments!  Well the best tip I can give to you is to practice practice practice.  Keep your eyes open to what new things the industry is doing, in terms of styles, and don't tie yourself down to any one thing.  If you're asking specifically about smooth movements it's all about your timing and spacing.  The closer your drawings are the slower, and smoother, it will look.  For example when a character comes to a stop, rather than just stopping dead add 2 or 3 cushion frames so that it feels gradual rather than abrupt.  That and the all important arcs, always use arcs and your work will be super smooth.  Good luck!
