The animation is really choppy, like a slideshow. his far arm should disappear behind his  torso at some frame, and it'd probably be helpful if the legs overlapped (which might require adjusting the sprite). It may even be that the sprite should be worked on a bit more before the run animation is jumped into.

also, there are many running-sprite threads in the forums, I'd study some of those if you haven't already.

If it helps any I used www.makeagif.com so I did not know which speed to choose.

I have looked at some of the other walking topics, but when i just look at it, it doesn't make sense to me. I tried and failed.
I am not sure on what needs fixed on the sprite.

Do you want to really do it right? You would probably need to redraw most of the sprite, as if he is going to walk left an right in that angle, he will walk almost sidewise, or something worst. I know how you are feeling, I have exactly the same problem (just that nobody seems to help me   :-[ ...  >:( )

Maybe i will have to redo the sprite... Ill try it and then post it up here.

New sprite maybe? it is a little more sideways. I do not know how else to fix it? Also a little sprite there.



Still willing to change it up, but i think i want to go more cartoony rather than more realistic.

I don't think you need to restart your sprite at all. Derk Yu's game along with a few others have a similar perspective and they look great. Plus your original sprite has more character than your newest. Just search for the many tutorials on here about walking animation and you'll do fine.

     :huh: mmmm.... sorry, I wasn't saying that you have to remake and turn 180 on the design of your character... I was just talking about  the angle that would make you change more things than you first thougt  :hehe:...
    I agree with ChadHackey

Alright but what can i do to fix this? I just can not get him in the right angle.



Fixed it up a bit. Shaped his head better, fixed some shading in his arm, eyes, and maybe with a nose?
