actions...
« on: July 02, 2007, 06:53:48 AM »
i have trouble describing so many actions. so i thought of starting this thread to help myself and other people out there to learn new actions. try not to add actions like kick. everyone knows that. if you can, include pictures or videos that describe the actions. [use these for examples]

1. crossdrawing  -  drawing the left gun with the right hand and drawing the right gun with the left. happens on lot on tv. for no reason except to look cool.
2. wheeled - [Gray, hanging upside down, wheeled onto the ground into a crouching position]
3. snipe - attack or kill with a rifle.
4. roll dodged - to roll on the ground while dodging bullets. not in the dictionary i think. i picked this up while playing video games.
5. crooning - sing softly
6. perforate - make a hole into, pierce

i need help differenciating all the different types of laughs. guffaw, snicker, scoff...
add as many actions as you like to the list.

You haven't described what wheeling actually is.

Never make a decision standing up.

7. pierce - cut through, usually with sharp instrument
