First animations.

on: September 23, 2015, 01:26:40 pm
Hey all, I am new to pixel art and this is my first sprite with an animation. I have been working on it for a week or so, but it feels very weird.

Here is the sprite:

Run animation:



I would like to hear critique and advice on how to make it look more realistic, thanks! :)

Judging from the style, I'd assume you're going for a Hyper Light Drifter kind of look.  I'd recommend look at some example from that game.

Otherwise, there's a distinct lack of frames on most things.  Having motion blur doesn't automatically convey a full motion for example.  Everything needs a much stronger motion.

You should start with a character design that isn't a copy of Hyper Light Drifter. I feel like it's cramping your attempt to learn as you don't actually understand the forms yet.
