blender sword animation practice

this time iam coming with something more advanced animation for me,
i will practice more on sword animation in the future

Looks cool but careful with the arcs and follow through… Insure the left foot stays in place for the first attack, move the head independently from the torso. The walk cycles of the guy are also a little bit too jumpy… And regarding the idle pose, keep the guy in place (looks like his anticipating a jump right now), he doesn’t need to have to much motion on the y axe, focus instead on the torso and shoulders for the breathing…

Comments from a fencing point of view… When he has a shield, it’s never a good idea to move it behind your back. Instead keep it in front of you at all times and cover the sword hand in the attack!
