Pixel Art / [C+C] Simple Character Walking Animation
« on: January 28, 2016, 04:07:53 am »
So I've made a basic character (He's not intended to be any specific thing. He's just a guy. I'm probably gonna change up color schemes for other players) and given him a walk cycle. I'm looking to improve on it. I'd appreciate any help :)

Yep, what Friend said. If you need to visualize, I took your sprite, scaled it down and made a few adjustments:

What program are you using? There was another programmer on here recently who made the same mistakes about mixing pixel resolutions, maybe that's it? If you want to get GIMP or PS to work well for pixel art, google "Set up GIMP/PS for pixel art" there are some handy tutorials there to help you speed up your workflow and avoid technical mistakes :) Or there are programs designed specifically for pixel art, but I haven't tried any of them yet.

If/when you're ready to animate, google "key frames" for whatever action you want to animate. Key frames are the frames you need to include to really portray the action well. Just by following those I easily doubled the quality of my animations, so there's something to consider :)
Thanks for the help :)
I'm actually using Aseprite. I understand keyframes, but I'll try to understand them more.

I'm a programmer working on a game. I have made a basic character and idle animation, but cannot figure out how to create a walk cycle. I'm very new to this. I'm grateful for any help you can offer me.
