Short instruction what to do in case zombies:
1. grab a bat
2. ...and swing it at the enemy!



38 frames, done with Adobe Photoshop CS6.

EDIT: Spotted few mistakes that needed fixing, such as hair movement. So I fixed them.

Actually, that's more of an "apple swipe" than a "zombie strike" - only because we tend to raise our elbows and widen our stances prior to a really hard swing.
Still, I'm not complaining! This is certainly better that I can do. ^_^
Awesome work!!

The animation of the bat swing seems a bit slow, like not enough force put into it..
That's really the only thing I can point out critique wise :P
Wow your animations are really good though.

Any update on the whereabouts of :iconniveouslamia: ?

It's not cool to just jip you like that, especially on animation. You make good quality animation (I'll admit, probably the best I've seen) and she just... faves it, then disappears! It's just not right, I tried poking around to see what I got but nothing that is of news to you :<

Very nice. I love how you portray the emotions, regardless of the mistakes. I get it: eventually at the end of your animations, who's gunna worry about a few pencil lines, right?
:D

too smooth, needs the jerkiness of a bat coming into contact with a zombie skull

This is really cool! The motion works and is nice and smooth, and I love the perspective of the bat as it swings. If I may offer some criticism: The timing of her action feels really even. That is to say that she goes straight from one action to the next, with little pause. A split second pause between when she notices the zombie (something to indicate a pause in her thought process; surprise is really good for that. Then something simple like the furrowing of her brow to mark her decision to bean the zombie) and she swings the bat would really sell her acting.

but if I may not offer criticism, that's okay too. This is a really good piece, regardless.

wow, over all i think this is amazing
but i think the timing might be slightly off
like the anticipation and the action is too smooth, that is could be a bit snappier

i mean c'mon she's smashing a zombie give it more force (take out some frames, exaggerate pose a bit more on keyframes + breakdowns)

tried doing some traditional work myself and found that its not really my strong suit so i guess im not one to talk ^^;;
