Hawk Animations

on: November 28, 2016, 08:25:45 pm
So I was hoping some kind folks would not mind helping me to improve my animation skills with pixel art.

I do all my animations first with a basic wireframe, that can be sometimes a skeleton. then I add mass, and layer on more details as I go using gimp.

I'm pretty happy with the flap animation for now, but I could easily improve it if someone knows otherwise :)

the one I am having the most difficulty with is the turning/banking animation for the template. Basically I just have a rotation, but I want it to feel more like a bird.

I thought the best way is to have the inside (inside of the turn) wing roll down, and the tail counter the turn by rolling the tail into the turn.

Look forward to any feedback.

Reference! Birds tend to bank more than just twist midair like that! Think of how airplanes turn
