[wip]Simple Player Animation

on: May 21, 2010, 10:16:14 pm
Hey there. I'm way more of a programmer than an artist, but I thought I'd try to make an animation for a game I am (possibly) working on. I'm not too bad when it comes to static images (or at least sprites that require minimal animation) but I'm having a bit of trouble with the following animation:



It looks ok in motion, but I can't really say it's all that great, so I'm looking for some constructive criticism or suggestions on how to improve this. Feel free to slap me with a fish and tell me everything I'm doing wrong  ;D
I also know that these guys are extremely saturated, but it works with the background colour in the rest of the game.

Cheers,
Noel

EDIT: Animation in action:

It would really help to post it in motion here on pixelation.
Photocopier: the fact that arne can also code so well
Photocopier: is horrificly unfair

It looks weird because when you walk, you dont leap in the air when you cross your legs. You leap when your legs push you off the ground. Here, this is a very useful tool.



Btw, that game looks very fun. Kinda reminds me of Portal. Maybe because I was playing it recently :P
