It doesn't jump a whole lot, but the actual movement/stretch is very "big". Doesn't seem right.
I'm trying to animate something like this, not really a "bop". But I guess you got it, so I'm gonna take my editor and try to come up with something better.

Does this look better ? I think I prefer it with no vertical movement, after all ...

I tried to animate a version of the inkbottle too. This is more typical animation, and Im not sure if you want it to be like that, but I think the anticipation helps make the attack look stronger?

I love how you have some "pressure" upwards already at frame #3 where the "mouth" is producing an anti-motion. I'll find some place in my spritesheet for something along these lines. Thanks a lot.

-- updated. Not as dynamic as yours, ymedron, but I have to fit a 32x32 box for the inkjet's "body".

Maybe instead of having it do what it is doing now, you could have it suck its body inwards and use pressure to shoot a drop upwards.

Err ... my mind fail to translate that into pictures. Sorry.

Hmm, I think the issue with your animation is that the anticipation is too quick. You could make the down-anticipation like two or three frames of it preparing to shoot the inkblot?

ah. I see. Well, the plan was to have the animation as a one-shot that occurs just when the ink is thrown (i.e. new droplet sprites generated), while would be the looping animation that takes place during the "preparation". They're separate for technical reasons. They should chain like . Would that bring in the missing anticipation ?

Now, I admit that the "new" frame with pressure building up would be more interesting as a basis for the "preparation" looped animation. I'll try it out.

I would vote for that one. Now show us the ink!
