Sword evolve

on: June 10, 2016, 09:29:07 am
Hi guys,

This sword has really tired me up, I know if I spend more time being patient I'll be able to finish a sword that looks good, but for now here's what I can come up with.



Must've taken me around three hours to make these sprites, most sprites i think of will be new to me, so the idea of a sword evolving was interesting and I thought I'd give it a try. Things I noticed is that it seems a bit flat, detail is missing, it wouldn't make for a clean animation due to lack of frames. the shading is a bit messed up but I tried to keep the light point to the left of the swords. I didn't go too wild with adding more colors either, the end product of the sword is a bit daft. It could do with the spikes appearing by the hilt instead. But I'll leave that for another day.

I tried to animate it, It hurts my existence.

Don't feel too bad about yourself. Being bad at something is the first step at being sorta good at something (quote by Jake the Dog of Adventure Time). I would highly recommend studying similar animations made by people who are good at animating, studying on animation theory (there's an entire thread about it here), and starting smaller.

this actually looks alright, it just needs something to morph INTO from there!
