First Post; First Animation Attempt

on: April 22, 2018, 02:41:38 am
Hello Artists, I'm still veeeery new to Pixel art in general. I've made a few things here and there, but today i decided to attempt an animation. It was a lot harder than i thought  :'(

Now i know the artwork its self needs work (legs are really bad). Mainly wanted to find a technique for making the animation more fluent and the best way of developing frames.
all in all im fairly happy with this little guy ... hopefully its not too bad  :wah:

Your image isn't working. Make sure you use the URL of the image itself, not the URL of the page it's on.

The animation itself isn't playing but a good place to start when worrying amount the animation aspects are the principles of animations. For this one especially I think using arcs and easing will add a lot to it.
