An animation for school with the restriction to use as few lines as possible to depict a motion.

I chose a katana slash. :katana:

The timing was done in Flash and brought over to Photoshop for inking and the finish.

Every last one of those 148 frames was drawn by hand; no shortcuts used.

***Are you having trouble seeing this animation in Internet Explorer? Please let me know***

Hmm. It was a while ago that I made it, but I do remember that it was an "A". :nod:

Thanks! Glad you like it. :XD:

Yeah, the Flash won't loop in Internet Explorer unless you download it or right click it and tell it to loop. I've added code to make it loop, but it's ignored.

It's good you knew what to do, though. :nod:

Thanks! The head had to be removed because the goal of this exercise was to work with as few lines as possible. I'm glad it's still readable. :XD:

very well done....

to be a bitch about the attack... XD its done wrong. samurai never stepped they bring their front foot foward and drag their back foot up. i was told this by my sensai.. and normal the pull out is a slash too. i know that for sure and btw if the pull out was that slow i would make it ez for me to throw him ^-^ (Jujitsu FTW)

Just tipping you for if you want to do something like this again
