These are nice, the the spearhead looks wobbly in the idle animation.

edited timing (it looks much faster in gimp? not a gif person...):

Oh, yeah that version of the idle is the old one, is this better?

The timing in the gif has nothing to do with what it looks like in game though, so I just threw it together.

The shield changes size in the attack animation (either smaller or larger, depending on what it is supposed to be in the original spearman).
Otherwise, it is especially nice that the specular stays in place (should be correct) rather than moves with the helmet (should be wrong) as I have seen sometimes.

In the new idle, the lower part of the spearhead still seems wobbly.
The shoulders and the elbows seem to move separately.

Whoops, I hadn't noticed, must've stretched it during blocking. Shouldn't be to hard to fix if desired.
The lower part of the spearhead is actually a piece of cloth, so it should flutter a bit and it would be hard to get the shoulders to move with the elbow, as the shoulders move upwards due to the breathing while the elbows are just flexing outward.

Would you mind if I committed them in the state they're in?

Nope, the frames I posted are actually the latest ones, I'd touched them up before I did the attack anim, and unless you want me to adjust the shield I think the attack anim looks allright.
Should I get cracking on the NE attack?

Ok great! If you want to make a NE animation as well, that'd be perfect.

EDIT:

Committed the Spearman anims.

Looks good to me. I'm not an artist though, so maybe it's good to wait for Jetrel's approval.

no, i did mean the spearhead metal part, it seemed to be twisting.
doesn't matter now as it has been committed, so this little edit (including the elbow) turned out to be just for fun.

The fact it's committed doesn't mean improvements aren't welcome anymore. :wink:

Updated the bob a bit, thanks Homunculus, sorry I was a bit short with ya earlier. Tried to fix the bending in the spear head, but I fear it might not be within my skills at this scale.
