I was able to check most of your video clips, some I could not look at all of it because my pc is hanging for some reason. From the ones that I saw you are doing pretty good. Just keep on working on your stuff and in time you be there. It take time to develop your popping foundation and you are doing that right now. Since you are more of a stop and go type popper (pretty much like me) it would be good to develop your upper body hitting. Continue to work on your chest, arms and neck hitting and develop a hit then dimestop type of movement. Basically this is boppin.
You hit, then go into a dimestop, then hit, dimestop. Regarding your strobe try to make sure your whole body stop on each and every strobe movement. I really think you got something there, I just believe it just a matter of time. I am going to try to see can I make some basic video clips in the near future. I really good at animation, strobe, ticking, and dimestopping, I love to look up real at times.
Animation is more like vibrating off your hitting. There are different types of animations, I do the one more closest to taco and shrimp. I trying to knock off some rust and get back out on the scene. I just took a break when my lady passed. I was hard for a while but now I'm feeling the dance again.
Strobin is more of a whole body going in a stop and go movement.
Ticking is more if a smaller strobe, it more smaller movements like one dimensional of strobin.
Dimestopping is just like stopping on the dime, basically you just come to a stop.

Niiiice break down space capital~
I think i enojoyed watching the last 4 clips more than the 1st clip, the 1st clip didnt seem like you were really feeling it. alot of movements were incomplete and had a "unsure" looking feel to it.
The rest of the clips tho i thought were good clips of you. I think from watching those clips, you strongest feel is sttrobing, you had alot of good arm ticks and dimestops goin there :)
I see that you are botting alot too, that is a diffifcult style to master in my opinion, takes alot of patience and body control. I cant even do it so ill stay off what to work on haha but i think if you make your movements seem more "heavy" like a machine it would add more of a cool effect to it. YOu did seem more mannequin ish maybe that was the style u were going for.
The waves i thought could use more logic in them, i think for starters you should practice getting a pattern going across your body, get that down, be able to control where you want the wave to go, and later on trace them accurately, often times it seemd like your tracing hand was ahead or behing the wave in your body. i think if you syn it well, you will get a better effect.
Good stuff Proto! you have come up alot since last i saw you, keep the clips commin :-) glad you are participatin and out of your cave!! you are finally seen!! :supz: :supz: :supz:

ur bottin is not as a bad as u think it is.....
...my suggestion is work on ur speed between the moves.....that movement inbetween the move.....
it should compliment......each other...
make ur stops on one rhythm.....and the movement between the stops..a different rhythm..and different speed
one...normal...the other 1/2 that speed.....
watch machines...work my friend......study the movement of all the parts...
keep doin it..........
