Posted:Pendulum could do with some cleaning up... And at the start I can't quite work it out, but is that a flower in opposites? If it is... when the poi are passing one another bring them up through a buzzsaw plane, it'll make it look a lot cleaner.
Try some stuff without poi... moving them together time same direction, together time opposites, split time same direction, split time opposites and turning with each one of those, it should help out your longarm a bit.
Posted:You mean like the geometric fire video? Because if so, all I have been practicing is long arm/anti spin combos and variations in the form of circles, triangles, and yes, squares. As for without poi... NEVAR!!!!
Im not sure which bit you mean by at the start, could you give me seconds? But in any case, Ive been working on my horizontal symmetry flowers and bringing them smoother into a buzzsaw. My flowers in general need more work, but I also need a large mirror to help practice them lol.
Oh, and pendulums.... Yeah, they could use some smoothing, Ive been working with them in some combinations and I know theyre not as sharp as they could be.
Posted:There was something near the start that you were doing and it looked like a split time opposites flower, but it looked in the video like the poi were passing outside your arms rather than up in a buzzsaw plane. Its about 35 seconds in.
Posted:lol, that is a hybrid of my own creation and I like it just fine, tyvm. But I can do those flowers you speak of and keep them running through buzzsaw, too. that just isnt what I was trying to do
Posted:Certainly. In essence, each hand is following a triangle antispin pattern. If you're spinning clockwise (eg to the right), then the steps goes like this:
1: Left and Right make outside petals (left to left, right to right) 2: Right makes top petal, left bottom 3: Right makes bottom petal, left top.
The move in the video is a bit different from this because in step 3, instead of the right hand antispining to the bottom, it long arms which gives the left hand more room to go farther right on it's top and bottom beats, and vice versa for right.
