Ah cool work dudio, great to see you improving! yeah the backgrounds are an important part of the video because it makes it pleasing to the eye and make audience watch longer. What you may need to do if you really want to get your background quality to improve, is make the videos alot slower and build the stage first and make it perfect, then do the fight animation last. another thing to look into, would be your camera movement. Sometimes rather than have the camera move super fast would be to have the camers move slower and pan slowly in and out, or left to right during the fights. kind of like a movie fight scene. It makes the animation seem more flowing if you get what i mean
Sometimes it happens - When we don't feel the magic in the creation. Not everything will always turn out good and how we want. The most important thing is the practice you get each time you make something and learn from mistakes and perfect the art. If you keep it up, you will succeed. If you follow the advice these guys have given you, you will get better and better.
One thing I will say, is about your text boxes - they seem kind of random and out of place and somewhat lack the artistic flair needed to really make the animation seem "professional" if you get what i mean.
The goal is to make the text box sequence seem like it is inside a real game, or part of the story sequence in the action game. An example would be to use sound, and have the box fade in, use colors and stylish clean text, and even the face of the characters inside the box too. Like this for example
Hey. Its been a long while. Sorry that I'm not as active here but school has preoccupied me. Regardless, I still had fun animating this on the side. Give me your thoughts. Im always looking to improve.
1. good sound 2. goos storyboard sequence 3. good original character choices 4. fight sequence is interesting and fast flowing which is good 5. good BGM choices 6. huge imporvement on your hit effects
1. the characters have no shadow 2. the camera movement is very choppy laggy not smooth 3. the background is only one flat picture with no perspective so the floor looks weird 4. the text boxes are far too large and weird color choices because u have dark writing over a colored box and the colors keep changing 5. alot of the other stuff mentioned to you above still exists here as issues
i suggest watch this one and see the smooth camera and quality backgrounds and video quality and try imitate this level and study it
I deleted the other post, as I didnt post it here initially... Anyways, this was originally going to be a shitpost, with, playing out exactly like the clip, but I thought that was cliché, so I did this instead. I hope you guys enjoy this instead. (Side note, there's a typo near the end with "305 subscribers" but I thought it was funny enough so I left it in.)
