A collection of various enemies I did for Super Mutant Alien Assault.
Since they are all needed to fit into one gif file the timing for some animations isn't perfect.

Great to see these posted. I'm the developer of this game and I can still stare at these with pleasure. Was an absolute delight having Vierbit as the artist on SMAA. Honestly, recieving assets from him was like opening presents on Christmas day.

@JerryPie
Yeah, that took a while to put it all together. Most animations have either 6 or 8 frames so the whole thing has 48 frames to make them loop perfectly. Also most of these have at least an idle and a run/fly animation.
I can alternate between these two to avoid any stutter.
The only case where this method doesn't work is for the first two sprites in the second row. They only have a 10 frame fly animation, but it's not that noticeable.

@Carnivac
Hey thanks for enjoying it.

First I want to say these look amazing! ... but the thing that's really impressing me is how you have so many different animations looping without any stuttering.  Do you have a tool to manage that, or did you have to make special edits to make sure it all cycled perfectly?
Once again, great work.

Beautifully done.  I bought this game on PS4 recently and it's great to see quality pixel art on my TV again. :)

Very, very nice.  They all look vivid, saturated, sharp and animation is fluid.  Well done.

When 2d looks more 3d than 3d, and pixels look more HD than HD.

@Asada
The usual answer, practice ;).
@Volrak Rutra
The whole project took about 2.5 years. But that also includes a lot of other stuff that isn't shown here. I also didn't include every animation for each alien.
But yeah, it certainly took a while to complete.

Very fluid and well modeled. It gives a great 3D perspective.

An awesome piece worthy to be on the top for sure.
