This is the Rohk...a commissioned monster named not by me.

He is now animated. Didn't take nearly as long as I thought. Most of the time spent was used correcting minor mistakes from the get go. Such as it not being centered, which really threw off the arm animating process...Could be better, could be worse but, animating things this large are just a pain.

it's not vearyy smooth but i like the pixel work 4/5


user
minipuck (Level 2 Corporal) @ 6/27/2009 02:42

no he puts down his heels first, and then his toes, so all the dust is blown forwards and sidewards.


user
Karzahnii (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2009 18:23

 If he's moving forward, shouldn't the dust be moving back? But still, this picture is awesome and the animation is pretty much flawless. I also can't believe it's 10 colours. Great work.

Nice Work!!! really great

user
finite (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/8/2008 09:24
I'm imagining this guy saying "BOM BOM BOM..." with each foot step. That makes him seem cute and threatening at the same time. :) Nicely crafted character.

user
DoomDoom (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/9/2008 22:14
Very nice anim...I like

user
gingerspam (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/29/2008 09:17
wow looks like shadow of the collosus type monster

Nicely done animation.

fuck.. 10 colors!! this is so sweet.

user
Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 4/20/2007 14:18
Besides the character and the animation I especially like the use of the limited colors and the way the dust disappears. One minor flaw though is the wrong timed bouncing of the little trees on his shoulder.

user

STUMP STUMP STUMP .... mamma mia lo sento camminare!

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/1/2007 07:30

I feel like we're seeing a lot of super-detailed animated sprites on PJ these days...

The outermost toes look a bit cropped when the feet land.

Great work overall!

AIGuy (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 2/1/2007 05:33
I like it.  The animtion is pretty cool.  Though I don't really get the way the branch bounces.

user
Pixlbrik (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/28/2007 08:56

this is awesome! it kinda reminds me of a Shadow Of The Colossus creature  lol

rate 5 + fav

"Could be better, could be worse but, animating things this large are just a pain."

That line says it all.

I love this, for so few colors, it's extremely well done.  Fav'd.

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 1/27/2007 12:04
you get some stray greens on his left our right leg, probably the result of flipping an early render.
i think that the basic animation is nice, but the reason it didnt take as long as you thought is because you havent animated nearly as much as you probably should, theres a lot of just hanging and stiff sliding that coul be improved with some simple sub-pixel motion and tweening, that should get rid of the "choopy" feel of things and make it a lot more fluid.  Its a very nice job, im just not sure its 100% done yet.

user
khorin (Level 1 Private) @ 1/27/2007 11:03
Great attention to detail when it comes to the animation. I don't think it's choppy just because it seems like those two vines or whatever they are located across his chest are beating. *shrug The armor  plates (I guess that's what that is) move as well. Neat-o!

user
DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/27/2007 10:48
Absolutely outstanding. Sort of reminds me of Shadow of Colossus, although with the sex appeal of a fancy new zelda game boss.

 Very very cool character design.

user
Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/27/2007 04:55
Very cool! Animation seems a bit choppy, is the delay the same in all the frames? It could just be Firefox acting up, of course.

user
tacky (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/27/2007 03:56
I would make him step on people

user
Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/27/2007 00:10
I think it's impressive for you to even consider undertaking an animation job like this, especially with such a detailed character. I think you did an amazing job. I do love the colors and the shading of the robot. The animation is also well done and I think it gives him a certain... personality. well done!

user

Your description seems to indicate you are not fully pleased. I, like every one below me is pleased, it seems.

user
Soup (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/26/2007 17:43

This is simply amazing.


user
nihilyst (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/26/2007 16:34
Wow. A great character and a nice animation.

user
Mirre (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/26/2007 15:39
Simply awesome. I really like the design, and details like the roots, swirlies and the plant on the shoulder. And the animation adds so much character to it.

user
Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/26/2007 13:47
Here's a link to the still frame. Nevermind the generic shadow it has (for game purposes)...

Click!

user
Sohashu (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/26/2007 13:38
Awesome work.  I never Saw it without the animation, so could you post a link?

user
Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/26/2007 11:04
Great work on animation and character, simply awesome!=)

user
Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/26/2007 05:20
The animation made it 10 times tastier then it already was, deserves a fav from meh :3

user
Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/25/2007 19:30
Thanks for the comments. I'm kind of sad that I didn't make this guy with the intent of animating, as I could've put forth a bit more effort rather than mostly pixelshifting.

user
ManningKrull (Level 9 Executioner) @ 1/25/2007 19:19
Excellent job on the animation! I can't believe how quickly you did that; I saw your earlier comment mentioning that you had to animation the thing next. Well done!

user
7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/25/2007 19:17

A monster with that size and that speed really would scare any player in a MMORPG game XD

Very smooth and well detailed, I loved every frame of it! Not only that, but the pixel work is impressive: pallete, lineart, shading...

I just wonder why some monster now have a tree on them. I mean, there is even a Pokémon with a tree on him XD


user
milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/25/2007 18:49
ha ha....this is awsome and gets an instant fav from me. really like the sence of weight youve added and the cartoony character design and smooth animation are right up my alley. Keep it up.

user
Afflict (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 1/25/2007 10:36
Didn't he say he was commissioned. Maybe they wanted the dark outline? Its not black though.

user
JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/25/2007 09:26
I like the shadowing under the stomach and on the legs. I think it will look a lot nicer without that black outline.

user
Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/25/2007 09:20
Black outline is wholly responsible to a poor style choice a long time ago when the project started. It's uhm...not 100% black though, so it's got that going for it.

user
chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/25/2007 08:55
Can't wait until you post the walking cycle! Cool character!

user
NMEwithin (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/25/2007 05:49
Really nice job!  But why the black outline??
