My main inspiration for this piece was various other stick figure animations that I have seen over the years. I've seen some really really cool looking fight scenes and other animations done only with stick figures. While mine isn't nearly as good as the one's i've seen, it was fun to do and get an idea of how they do it. The process wasn't all that tough, I basically drew each individual piece of the figures for each frame of the animation. I would rotate the body for the angle I wanted in the specific pose and then draw the arm/legs etc to fit the rest of it. I had to move the guys around alot to get it to look somewhat realistic, but I added some aspects to give it a nice touch like all the "impact" marks and the action lines. I don't know exactly who it was that created the ones that I saw, but they would be the artists that influenced me for this.
