After the last update I began working on shading on the character, he looked flat compared to the background. I think it works well, but could do with some deeper shadows. I also finished what I think will be his full motion, but it looks a bit choppy and could be smoother, I don't know if it's because the shading doesn't transition smoothly between frames or if I need to add more frames to his action.
I've also improved the swipe on the sword as he draws it, and it looks more like it fits with the animation. It isn't as sharp at the last attempt and is a closer colour to the sword which is more like what is expected in an animation.
The cape still looks to billowing, which I will fix another time.
