By the way, I've been getting some comments that my Dex so far is a little chubby. I might revamp him, here's what I got so far:

Not saying this is final or anything, I just want opinions.

Hey, thanks for the critique. I'll fix the leaves soon and lessen the contrast on the trees. However, on the ground tiles, the huge grass casts a shadow that darkens it. It is dark there, but further down AFTER the light hits it, it'll get dark again, if that makes any sense. Will update either tommorow or Sunday, it's late here.

Hey guys, thanks for the comments.
@Corsair, thanks, I know about the idle and I've fixed it on the sheet I have but not the animation. I actually fixed it a long time ago after someone said something.
@Trev, thanks again, helps a lot!
@EvilEye, also thanks, but the punch looks fine in game and I've been through a LOT to get it even that far, trust me.  :D


Started over.

Thanks, EvilEye. A punch edit would be nice though.
Anyone willing to help out on this project, just ask!

S.Q.U.I.R.E is a game project I, Dex/MR21, have been working on in the past month I guess. I need spriters to help, and maybe a few level designers and a programmer or two, if anyone wishes to help. I spent a long time fumbling this stuff around my desktop until I pieced in together into a storyline:

The Intro, read by Dex's mentor at the beginning of the game:

The year is 2037. The world has become a desolate place of destruction and war. Death encircles our planet, hopelessly ravaged by the S.Q.U.I.R.E. army, led by their vicious leader, Nero Stormcross. It all began in 2032, however. Years earlier, a gargantuan asteroid was spotted looming somewhere in space, in a line straight towards earth some years later. At first, people thought nothing about it, like it was but a minor threat and that it would pass by unnoticed. They were wrong.

The asteroid was indicated to be traveling towards earth in a direct impact line in 2025, and scientists all around the world began working together to try and stop the disastrous asteroid from harming the world. Scientist Nero Stormcross then arose from the picture and introduced his invention, his "lovechild", called the Noxis, to be launched into space. His theory was that the Noxis would create a sort of "vortex" effect, and, in a principle similar to how a black hole works, would destroy the asteroid and suck up the pieces in order to keep earth same from the aftermath of the explosion.

And it worked. The asteroid was destroyed, and earth was saved. Nero won all sorts of prizes and awards, and his fame skyrocketed off the charts, becoming known as "The Man who Saved the World." But his fame was shortlived. Nero's power and fame corrupted his smart, heroic mind, and he then began to think that everyone should be like him, that everyone should be a heroic genius.

That was when his idea for a one world order came into play- the S.Q.U.I.R.E., or the Sononeuclionic Quindonic Urerthrum Ionic Robotic Entities. These words, made for the therum Nero had created the Noxis, became used more powerfully, along with the tons of new scientific advancements that had been created.

Then, in a scary turn of events, thousands of humans, innocently, were killed in an attempt to show the world what Nero wanted- humans dead, or S.Q.U.I.R.E. alive. Millions submitted to his new world order, thinking they could use an upgrade to the "inferior minds" that they now possesed. But Nero's S.Q.U.I.R.E. design wasn't just a mere brain-enhancer, it was a whole new body for the person who possesed it.

Then, The Resistance was formed. Dex, our hero, had been living peacefully until Nero's outbreak, and they had went into hiding and joined The Resistance. The Resistance fought back for a few years, when Dex was young, still in hiding underground. But the safety encampment of the Resistance was found and destroyed by the S.Q.U.I.R.E. And Dex saw it all- his parents transformed, his brother slaughtered, and his best friend fighting by his side. The end was near, however, and the battle was almost won by the S.Q.U.I.R.E. A lazer from an oncoming Sweeper robot caught Dex offguard and he was brought to the ground, only hearing his best friend's voice saying, "You'll be safe..."

This is where our story begins.

Yeah, this is a lot. :D

I think I see what you mean, I'll get to fixing it.
And if anyone could provide an edit with head motion I'd greatly appreciate it.  :P

I'm new here, but not new to Pixeling.
Just wanted some critique for my newest animation:

Some head turn movement is what I am looking for, as I have tried and failed.
(And don't worry, I am not an annoying newbie who won't take critique.  :y:)
