Need a bit of help with animation

on: January 01, 2007, 01:43:52 am
I recently started working on a game and I was making a base.



I am having trouble animation him walking, when i make it, it looks like if he is having a heart attack. Also i was told i need a pallet edit, any help would be awesome.

Well, before you start animating, i'd suggest getting all of the perspective issues ironed out.  His eyes are in a place on his head that suggests he is at eye-level with the camera, rather than at an angle (overhead.)

I'd suggest studying some RPG sprites and re-designing the character's position first.

he never said he was doing top-down did he? although the poses he used would indicate he is...

animations- 1 leg forward, opposite arm forward.-> other leg forward, first leg backwards, and each arm is in the opposite of its leg (arm forward, leg backward)
untz untz untz?

the angle will be face on, unless you can suggest a better one  ;)

Okay, sorry, i guess i should have asked before assuming it was supposed to be in a top-down RPG style.  Is it going to be a platform game, or is the pseudo-perspective style just your choice?
