i still need to make the second punch look more forced but this is basically it. The animation is running as bit slow but this is because it was put together in Movie maker :angery:

C&C welcome

yeah, the second punch is a bit *pansy-ish* but, the rest of the animation is great!

Nice going some guy

To add more emphasis to the second punch, dont move/rotate the right shoulder forward too much during the recovery of the first punch. Then let it snap through at a fast pace and see how much more powerful it will make it look.

If you want to give the second punch some more "force" you can try playing with elbow. try to move its pole vector towards the sky as he is punching.

yeah good point eddieson, if you punch hard with the rear arm then it'll be more compressed initially (bent) and then the force will come more rounded as the left shoulder snaps back and the right shoulder* drives the arm forward.
* more shoulder = more effort and force
At the minute the force is coming through upwards from the elbow only and gives it a weak effect.

Its improving well though some guy, you should have some cool animations by the end of the challenge

Yeah, great work some guy - though there is something still bothering me about the second punch - it just seems to lack the force of the first punch. Not sure why though - maybe because he is not leaning into it so much, though I am sure others can give much better advice. Excellent work.

Why does he just all of a sudden lean back after he is done punching?
