"Ever wondered how the Sniper became the man he is now?
Always wanted to see a professional at work?

Well here you go, the fantastic story of everyone's favourite Marksman!

I want to thank all my friends for believing in me and my project. Without them, I wouldn't have finished this video.

Thank you very much, this small "review" helps a lot, really! i knew it wasn't perfect, but what could you expect from someone's very first animated movie? :D I really just started working with the program, thank god i'm talented :D Also, i did all the movements in the movie WITHOUT any reference (walk cycle drawings, recording myself doing certain moves).
BUT now i'm working on my new movie, which will be way more detailed, music and animation, and also story wise :D

Great action! Awesome Sniper! Starts out a little slow. Need background music for silent parts. Was the arrow he shot in the beginning supposed to be the same one that kills Engi at the end? The way the music cuts off makes the scene transitions abrupt. Snowboarding, very creative use for the Razorback, not sure it would work on dirt, but I like the concept. Axe jump was a really cool move! Animation could have been a bit smoother. His Scout sidekick kind of comes and goes in the background, not there right after Pyro dies but filming Engi in the next scene. The arrow countdown was really awesome! Finger and mouth movements were perfect. Though the arrow comes in from behind him, yet ends up through the side of his head when he dies. Not sure why Soldier never used his rocket launcher, but the grenade catch and throw back is so cool nothing else really matters! Perfectly timed BroFist! And I like the way he “shoots” the camera off at the end! Really enjoyed it overall, Great Job!

It has a Larrikin Robin, it's not Dr. Face :C

Razorback-surfing Sniper is pretty rad. I like the idea, but the animation could use a little work. Overall I liked it though!

That Sniper, shooting at people during peace time (outside a match). Tsk tsk.
