Hi Cassie. Your EAP just got better and better, from the initial video reference, the struggle through the Jason Ryan technique, the first version uploaded, to this one with 'more snap' by polishing the spacing.

It will get more fun and easier the harder you work at it. Good work so far.

Hi Cassie,

Just give it more time in the anticipations and then have the contact pose and the overshoot on the limbs before returning to the original "extended pose" and the follow through on the other parts of the body.

If you have seen any great reference on youtube of kicks and punches, don't really go for the "how punch" videos go for over the top or really nice piece of a fight sequence from a movie and study that (frame by frame). Animation is not a art to make everything look realistic (we just have to look around to see that), animation is there to be dramatic, and entertain and hold an impression.

I hope that helps, good luck!
