Hmm. Does it look like he's swinging both the swords? The goal was to only be swinging one sword for the first slash, and to alternate for the next 3 slashes.

So you think the animation might be too many frames for use in game? I'll see what I can do about that. I'll try to see if I can find a balance between the smoothness and speed.

Hmm. You're absolutely right about the horizontal slash giving the character more range. I'll try to make a horizontal slash and see how that turns out. Thanks for the crit!

EDIT: I took out two frames of the existing animation, and it does look a bit better in terms of attack speed and still smooth:

Hey, looking good so far! A few critiques;

-You said that you wanted it to be a one handed slash, yet it looks like hes using both his hands; if you are using one hand, the other hand will naturally go the other direction (see edit)

-Your animation is TOO smooth between too many similar frames and motion blur (strange idea, I know! but you CAN be too smooth, which loses IMPACT and force needed for a good slash :-D)

-You detailed before you finished the animation; i'd stray away from that simply because its such a chore to have to constantly redraw details and i tend to force myself to rotate and slightly readjust existing frames rather then new ones, which is a big nono for believable animations. just use blobbies until you are satisfied with your animation

-Don't be afraid to over-exaggerate; humans being are a lot more dramatic then what we think in our heads!

-Act out your actions in real life! You'll notice small things that you don't think about, like how your arms and legs move naturally.

a demonstration

Its far from perfect, but it conveys action a bit better and leads up for a much better combo attack (assuming that's what your goal will eventually be)

Keep working hard; a good animation can truly make anything look beautiful.

the lie animation looks a bit like his arm is stretchy, probably because his elbows and upper arms dont move?

That's the bottom part of a half tank half mech thing. The bottom will have treads, and the top will be like a robot. The one on the right is the original, and the one on the left is the one that i messed around with in GIMP. I like the one on the right, but the colors are kind of boring. C&C

Yeah i do use GM, and yeah again it was set to japanese. Thanks.

With middle piece:


Not really going for looks, trying to see if i can get a good animation. Looks better then befores ;P For the person that was confused;

If it was looked from the side from now, it would look like:, just better. Also, in the game, you can swap out parts and stuff, so i have the legs , cockpit, weapons, etc drawn seperate.

Sorry, don't know how to make it loop. I think the reason it looks like it's shuffling is because the bottom part of the feet dont turn..?

How would you go for animating top-down legs? I've been wanting to make this game, but i really couldn't find a tutorial for top down legs; just mostly side-view. The way i tried is to animate the bottom part of the foot going foward, then the other going foward, but it looked like he was just shuffling along. So; How would you animate, lets say just normal legs, but also like backward legs (Kinda like a goat's hind legs) and a 4 legged animal's legs? Thanks alot

i found this forum today, and i wasnt a real pixel person. it looked like alot of fun, so i decided to try it. i was looking at that jack o lantern thread, and i made one of my own. Any suggestions will be appreciated, and any program other then paint to draw/animate with. I personally like the one with the black outline the best =/
