Shooting gun art by a beginner

on: October 25, 2017, 10:23:23 pm

I'm a beginner but I've practiced by copying pixel art. This is what I've made with a source. Is it good for a beginner? I've tried adding depth/shading to the gun with extra colors and included the shooting out explosion without a reference and have the gun move by tilting and maybe moving the original image.

If you try to imitate the action of a gun you see that it gives a lot of feedback when you shoot, and it's also very quick and flashy. I put all this in the animation, you see that right after the gun shoots it immediately flies back. You can see I added a really quick impact frame right when the gun shoots as well. This is just knowledge you get from studying and learning a lot about animation. You're definitely on the right track!

As always, look at Metal Slug:

A lot of the best parts of any good firing animation comes from how the characters react to the recoil,  if you're going to attach this to a character later keep that in mind!
