she is completely straight during the dive, if you think about it, that would be incredibly difficult to do. look at like, michael phelps' dive as a guide or something. same with the swim, you wouldnt be totally straight, at least your head would come up everyonce in a while

Hey Web, thanks for the suggestion. I made her bend more during the dive, and it looks significantly smoother.



I agree about the swimming too. She is underwater, so I won't make her head come up, but I was thinking about making her "dolphin a bit more". I'll update after I work that out.

In the game, the character gets different suits that give her different abilities. Here is the frogsuit, which lets her swim faster and stay underwater longer. I wanted to see if anyone had input on it before I animated it.



The large one is zoomed 4x, which for me is how big she will be in the actual game. I guess it will be different depending on your resolution, but the game will be 320x240 so she needs to read at that level.

Thanks

The swimming animation looks strange, I wouldn't think someone would just be staring straight down as if rotated 90 degrees right, but I could be wrong.

I agree, if you look at the new sprite sheet at the top I addressed that very problem! She bends up and looks in front of her.

I still think it could be improved, why does she always have to have her head somewhat face camera?
