WEEK 6: Character Acting 2: Attack, continued!!

that's some anticipation right there!
Assignment 3: Attack
Assigned: 08/02/12
Due: 05/03/12
% of final grade: 20%

Tranisition from the walk and run cycles into an 'attack'. Your file should include the walk cycle and the transition to the run. Include a transition into the attack that shows anticipation, and be sure to complete the action with a believeable follow through.  If possibly, the attack should also transition back into the run or the walk.

Use the pre-built humanoid skeleton or your own rig.

Exemplary: Clear personality and attitude, strong apparent weight, fluid motion with a strong grasp of all animation principles. Action transitions flawlessly from the walk or run and includes a clear anticipation and follow through.
Excellent: Apparent personality, weight and almost entirely fluid motion with a good grasp of nearly all animation principles. Action transitions smoothly from the walk or run and includes an anticipation and follow through.
Acceptable: Some personality and weight. Motion is mostly fluid with minor errors or missing animation principles. Action transitions reasonably smoothly from walk or run with some attempt at anticipation and follow through.
Not Acceptable: Attack not convincingly heavy or not fluid with quite a few glitches or missing animation principles. Transition not smooth or with errors such as missing anticipation or follow through.

Equal weight will be given to:
Attitude/Personality, Weight, Pacing/Timing, Overlapping Actions/Secondary Motion
