As I have little experience in terms of character animation, I was tasked with recreating an anime fight sequence in 3D. Summer Wars is one of my favourite films, so I chose that as my basis. This is...

Nice 3D animation man. Although theres one major problem. I noticed the choreography is exactly the same as the fight in summer wars, which really brings me down. I dislike it when theres literally 0 creativity in animation, making tributes (like shock tributes) is perfectly fine but copying every single move isnt, it really does ruin it for me. but i guess that by getting a task of recreating an animation you were meant to make every scene look the same, anyways i hope you understand, goodluck.

Yeah the entire point of this project was to recreate the 2D scene one for one in 3D, so having it be the same is kind of the point. Transitioning something from 2D to 3D still takes quite a bit of work as it's not as easy as simply tracing over a drawing. Many things do not transition well from 2D to 3D (as evidenced by the awkwardness of the moves around the 33 second mark) , and as I progressed I started to stray away from attempting to be as close as possible to making it work well in 3D

Either way, this was intended to be a learning experience in terms of character animation, and I learned a lot from it, be it timing or simply weight distribution as to have movements not seem stiff and completely unnatural.

My lack of knowledge about 3D animation may have made me sound a little cocky in that other post. My bad. I agree that turning a 2D animation into 3D may be pretty hard, and how you must have learned from this experience. Anyways i guess i meant that I have no problem with the animation, but with the task itself, because like I said copying isnt really my cup of tea. Anyways I hope you continue learning 3D animation. Best wishes and goodluck with future animations!
