The second assignment for my first semester at animschool.com is a running jump. Again, the main goals here are achieving realism with body mechanics. I did push the jump some, since it is a pretty unrealistic distance to jump over. I feel like I have come a long way, even since the first assignment.
From the crit, my instructor said to decrease the length of the jump, as he seems to be being propelled by a rocket a bit in the air. Also, on the landing, the end needs work. He was saying the final step should happen sooner, and there should be another step after that. Finally, he said to slow down the standing up at the end, and overlap more.
