in gamemaker 8 there is a sprite editor, where you can add some animations to a sprite, for example you can make it shrink in x frames, or become invisible

that's very very very useful, and so I wonder if there are others tools like this available with more options ? i can't find any (maybe i'm using the wrong keywords)
By tools i mean programs or scripts for gimp, or plugins or no idea lol

Thank you

2D & 3D / What is wrong with this animation ?
« on: January 14, 2013, 08:13:52 pm »

I did this with a model, the skeleton is supposed to be a monster that's why he has long arms but this animation looks weird, no ?

I made one earlier which was better but I don't find the words to explain what i dislike here (i think it's decent though)

Can you tell me if there is something wrong or if i'm just looking for the small details (on a sketch -_-) ?

General Discussion / Drawing from a 3D model (skeleton)
« on: January 10, 2013, 07:57:15 pm »

i know this technique is old, one of the game I like and which is very old used it, Legacy of Kain Blood Omen, they drew their characters based on a 3d model which could be viewed from every angles.
I need to draw exactly the same angle view than in this game (45 top down), I already drew some animations but more from a 20 lol if you know what i mean.

So do you know how should i proceed ?
Can i download free to use 3d model of a knight for example and observe it in a free program like google sketch or blender ?
(i have no idea of what i'm speaking)
Are there already pre-made sites/animations with this kind of thing to inspire ? i don't need details on the character, the minimum would be the skeleton !

For the moment I only need walking anim from 45 angle and sword attack/shield pary.

Thank you for the eventual help

2D & 3D / Castle rooms sketches : i need your help
« on: December 08, 2012, 02:48:16 pm »

I'm trying to make my first game which will look like a 3/4 top down rpg, like Sunset Over Imdahl, Blood Omen, Zelda.

The game will take place in a castle, in its rooms. I only need few rooms ideas in theory (but the more the better). The problem is I really don't find any reference to help me, anything to inspire me, so I ask you there if someone could sketch or draw something really quick, just to get some rooms ideas (what could be inside, what kind of textures I don't know).

Else you could indicate me some reference pictures.
Else i'm gonna experiment shitty drawing till i get something good :p

I drew these as first draft

It's more like an abbey's garden because i don't think there were things like that in castles but I thought it would be easier. Maybe i should stick with indoor rooms which is more "realistic/convincing" although the plot will be totally absurd.

As you can see this is not really appealing... I don't have good ideas in mind, the perspective is weird lol. I drew this only to have an idea of what it'll look like.

General Discussion / Hand Drawn RPG-style game ?

do you know some games where you move your character and the background is handdrawn like this one ?

From a top down view or 3/4 top down view and without tiles ?

Like a point and click but you control the char with arrows

2D & 3D / Trying to animate my first Character (walking 3/4 top down)
« on: November 10, 2012, 06:33:38 pm »

this is not pixel art so i post here,

I'm trying to make my first animated character, and it's hard :x I never animated anything
I think i'm almost done with its walking animation, i just need to ink it with my mouse and gimp (boring -_-) and using layers, transparency to simulate onion skin...

The first attempt was done without a "skeleton" and it was bad, also i drew in a too large scale, this time i shrinked it but it's still too huge i guess, i should have drawn smaller. And the perspective is medium i guess, especially the back view, i spent lot of time on it and i'm still not satisfied wth it...

The white poses are the good ones, the rest are only trials.

Do you think it's enough to make it walk ? i know some things must be reworked a little, so if you wanna correct the drawing, do not hesitate plz :p (the back view, or the second drawing with the left leg which looks too long imo)

thank you if you help :x

PS : if you know some tutorials or examples/templates about this kind of animated drawings, tell me please !
