Alright, so you know that most animators, from good to just beginning, usually pick only 1 place to focus on when starting the stick figure, right?
Most common for people to do are head first, back first, or feet first.

I use several specific points to further my abilities, I usually start with the hips when thinking about animating a stick figure.

Here in this animation, I didn't use all the possible points like I first intended to.
I did not get to use some crucial points used in fighting, but I've been trying out my sense of balance when animating.

I used the hips feet and head all together for working out my run.

The neck and hips were used for the butterfly twist's pin point.
Hips for the areal

body and arms for the handspring.

etc etc..

enjoy.

it kinda hurts me that you're getting this deep into stickman physics. this would be a million times cooler with an actual figure.

Learning physics start somewhere.
Also, you know...making stick figures are so easy, I think I'll be using them as...you'll see later, I'll redo this animation with the idea...

As for now, to settle your pain, watch this xD

Was kinda pointless but I used no sketches or draft.

I said I was going to redo it but, I decided it would be a little bit too much work.

Cash...I think that means good?
And that's alright, to feel stressed out over it, I mean.
Stick figures are the easy way out of animating an entire body with clothes

p.s.I like pears, they're tasty fruit
