More flap, less fap.

on: April 29, 2009, 11:23:19 pm
Made this little wooden being for the sake of seeing if I could still push a pixel.


It was supposed to look like it was trying to fly. Looks like it's struggling to keep it's head above water.

C+C on design, animation and pixel technique are all welcome.

I agree, looks like he's drowning, rather than flying. I think the frantic leg movement is the culprit. Tried a head bob yet? HIs body is so static.

If you're testing the rustiness of your pixelling abilities, it doesn't seem to make sense to feature design, animation and pixel technique. I'd focus on one at a time, so that you could better focus on the area of need, but that's me I guess.
