Well I put alot of debris flying off because I dont want a carcass of ship to be left at all, so I can just get rid of the object when its blown up.
As its a bomber ship, youd think its full of explosives too, so the exaggerated explosion isnt too awkward...
You might be right about the smoke though, it flies up a lil quickly. But its also being "blown away" by the explosion, I thought maybe this speeds up the dissipation?
Also, new version:

Added smoke and finished the anim. I might correct some stuff later but ill prolly move on to next ship now, or ill never finish the game. Next ship is a smaller one, a light fighter. The kind that comes in big numbers.

The blast is advancing! Man those are bitches to animate! It'll look much better with some thick rising smoke, i'm sure.
I made the colors a little more deep and red, looks better imo. Also added black. theres about 5 frames left to add, plus the existing ones to add stuff on.

the damaged turning is useless for the ships that are in the background, but not for those who are on the ground lifting off. Those can be shot before they become active. Fior instance, some stay completely inactive when you pass, but then liftoff at the last second (before the screen completely scrolls past them) and they come from behind. Theres also a part of the level where you can throw a big bomb that damages everything in the area, so everything there will come damaged by default if you could shoot the nuke.
(im a big fan of having ways to modify a levels' course)

Well for the fire, I thought the light reflection should be stronger when the flame is at its thickest close to the reactors. (notice that the frame with the strongest light is the one where the flame is short and fat). But maybe youre right about this, ill try changing the light and see if I like it more.
The reactor reflection should vary less than that and be more of a constant light, but I wanted a strong flicker on the back to be very obvious, I think it looks better.

For the beginning of the ship's crash animation, it does look odd this way, but as I said ill throw in smaller explosions before the big one, and I think it will look much better then.

About the turning animation, as I said on the first post, its because some ships start out on the ground, and I wanted them to look different when landed, so that when its about to lift off, some movement warns you before it zooms towards you. I also thought of putting some ships that fly further away in the background, can turn and change "planes" to go to the players'. That would require some nasty work, but most of the movement will be when the ship is far off in the background, so the sprite will be smaller and easier to animate. the current turn animation (with the addition of flames coming out of the thrusters) will be the final little anim that, again, warns the player that the ship is on its level and is dangerous to him now.

(Whats nice with this, is that then I don't need to create different movement patterns for ships that come from the ground or from the background: both simply start with the turning anim in the same way. So I just create the ship objects at the moment they become active, and the rest works by itself. For ships that dont either come from the background or the ground level, ill simply create them away from the players' line of sight, so the player wont see the now out-of-place turning animation. You see what I mean?)

Working on the crash animation.

Its about half finished. I'm not sure how Ill place the smoke yet, right now its pretty much just fire.
Ill also add smaller explosions on the ship before the bigger blast. They will tear off a few parts.

(help verily appreciated for that blast anim! its a bitch to animate, I spent a few hours on it already...

...and I got like 10 more enemies to animate just for that level! seeeesh!)

I think ill try and reuse that explosion for some other foes, modifying the debris to match them.

Ill drop a few enemy ships here as I pixel hem, theyre for a flash game.
Please give criticism, there is surely much room for improvement here!
The damaged animations don't have much smoke because most of it will be through separate sprites or random explosions over the vehicle. Same with fire.

This first ship drops bombs on civillians and buildings. Its for a side-view, city-themed section.
16 colors in all so far, but itll prolly take more for the death anim. Fire and stuff.
The turning animation is for ships that start on the ground unmanned. Soldiers enter the ship, it turns and lifts off with a jet trust.
(turning, movement, turning-damaged, movement-damaged)


This second ship just shoots or rams into you-

This is hard to comment on, since it is hard to make out what parts are under progress and what parts are done and ready to be commented upon: there are large plain areas everywhere... Try putting a more recent update?

I dont like the blur over the sun, but I cant make out wether it is part of the sun, or a reflection on a yet-undrawn cloud or something...

The piece looks wonderful, but i am not a fan of the first panel. Its style clash with the rest...
