Pixel Art / Re: Dinosword: Boss Animation (Critique Appreciated)

Hey Eishiya. Lo and behold, there are slow motion cat videos on the internets! I'm going to go study some and see what I can get from them.

I am going for a human/cat combination. Hopefully I can get the "generic cartoon human" part more "cartoon human".  :'(

I guess between the two references you are using, It's more a Ryu thing.

The context of the fight is that Chompy (The Player) enters Tuth's Home (The Boss). They have a discussion and it goes south. Tuth is a feline character, so I want to have his movements be more agile/cat-like, than say Zangief. Also, the player is significantly smaller. So I'm thinking the look is more.. like if a small animal was in his home and he wanted to catch it but more aggressive. Throughout the fight, things are going to get bounced around and broken.. but he is trying to be careful/aggressive at the same time since he is in his home. It's kind of an odd combination.

A lot of the feel behind the art in this game is that while a lot of the movements are over the top, both characters shouldn't really look very trained in anything they do. The way they fight is going to be a bit awkward, goofy.

I appreciate your effort in trying to help. I hope that gives you a bit more to go on for what I'm trying to do.

Also, you were mentioning about roars/winks/facial movements. I have a roar attack that I've been working on, but it's not really to a point where I'm happy enough with it to even put it up for critique yet. I'm going to put it up soon though.

Thanks so much for your help. I have been working on this game for awhile, and sometimes it starts getting hard to look at things as objectively over time.

I made some changes to both the walk and the crouch cycles. I think the new walk cycle feels a lot better, but there is still something not quite right. I changed the feel a bit from the original. I was aiming for more of a cautious looking walk at first. I think the arms still provide that idea, but the new walk isn't really a shuffle. Opinions?

The crouch animation feels a lot better to me. The legs were losing a lot of volume in the previous version. I think this might have solved it.

Here are some animations of a boss that's going to be in the game I'm working on.






Wall Grab:

Wall Slide:

Wall Push Off:

Corkscrew Jump Attack

Head Bump Off Wall transition into Landing Animation

I feel like the animations are coming along, but nonetheless. I know there are a lot of great animators that come here and would love some input good or bad.

Here is the room the fight will take place in if it helps to get an idea of how the animations will work in context. It's getting there.

I like this little guy.

I made a little something to hopefully get you in the right direction.

I was just in the middle of mentioning Monoprice, but Ai beat me to the punch. I've had mine for over 5 years and there have been no problems.

@Ashkin: Thanks for the Bass Guitar! That's the most electric Bass Guitar I've ever seen!

@Raster: Glad you like it! My knowledge of steampunk robots is fairly lax, but I tried! :)

I'm also in.  :)

I have been making pixel art for a year or so but haven't posted a ton of my work. I'm in the process of making a game right now called Dinosword. Someday I will finish it.

I like:
The Maxx, The Artist Jay Ryan, Coffee, Old Picture Frames, Lightning Bolts, Punk Rock, NES sprite art, Bass Guitar.

Excited to see what comes of this!
