A clip of animation I've been working on for my new showreel. I did this all traditionally on my light box and then scanned and tested the animation in Flash.

It has taken a while but I'm pretty happy with it overall. The only thing I'm still not 100% sure on is her trip. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to critique =)

well one way if you want to highlight the trip is to have a close up of her toe hitting the pebble that makes her trip then returning to the running sequence (and cut to the facial expressions b4 she recovers)

the other would be to have her flail with her arms for few extra slide/scenes before she recovers to run

(both can be seen in Naruto.....but you may be trying for a more naturalistic version rather than the heavy comedy lean that Naruto uses them for)


just my two cents for what it's worth :D

Thanks Tania! =D I was originally looking at a trip sequence in the opening of the second season of the the series 'When They Cry.' I think your right about it needing some more exaggeration =)

i find most of the anime i watch (especially when its one of the shoujo types they focus on the foot slip then have a session focusing on the expression on the face before zooming out to have the impact of the fall/stumble where you get a full body shot.


just finished watching Dai-Undo-Kai which is a sports anime (but with girls as the main instead of the usually boys as main character) so lots of falling over and therefore lots of cut scenes between feet/face/fall. maybe try googling/youtubing it to see....there are a few stumbles on the obstacle course/racetrack that are kept minor  as it's a kinda 'slice of life' type of feel to it if what you were looking for is a only a minor moment :)

Good detail in the dress when her right leg swings forward. I might not have noticed it if it wasn't for my slow-ass laptop taking ages to run the flash thing.

Thanks heaps! =D I ended up uploading a smaller version because I was having the same problem with the loading =P (Sorry for the late reply!)

great job! I love how the whole animation is her running to recover the distance from her stumble, and as she reaches her apex, she stumbles again.
