Barbarian Assault

This was my first time doing any character animation in After Effects (coming from a motion design background), and I had a lot of fun.

Adding in little secondary motions like the helmet bounce, sword sway, and beard jiggle were my favorite finishing touches.


Oh, and one tip for some people who have had trouble with parenting hands or objects to an arm path point:

For arms and legs, you can use the puppet tool instead of animating a stroke path. And then, you can parent a layer to a puppet point (like the one for the end of an arm). That's what I did for the sword layer to parent it to the hand.
