[C+C]Wanting some advice for sideview

on: March 07, 2015, 09:52:22 pm
Hi, I'm pretty new to pixel art and am making a side sprite for a character. I just can't quite get it to look good. I have the down sprite which I'm okay with. However, I can't get the side sprite to look how it would if that character were left or right. Looking for any advice. Thanks so much

Your character is doing what my brother's battalion referred to when marching as "circle squaring." This is when you walk with your left arm in sync with your left leg and your right arm in sync with your right leg. A walk is all about counterbalancing of weight so you actually move your hand in sync with your opposite foot.

Looking pretty good for a 3 frame walk otherwise :)
