Just an animation I've been messing with lately. It's supposed to be some type of alien in Goth gear. I'm slightly satisfied with it, however, I'm always open to suggestions.

So, got any?


Due to recent critiques, I've decided to update it and give it another bounce with the blink, to break the halt of motion...any other suggestions?

 I feel the alien is doing like, Awww you!  Waving off a compliment that made it embarassed. Thee hee.

oh..... well then

Gothic clothing...black leather, straps...the weird stuff...

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/26/2010 23:44

awesome stuff. I've been looking through your gallery and you really do deserve to be on level 11.


PS what is goth gear?

I love this, but yeah, I must agree, but what is missing in my humble opinion is the volume of the tentacles. I think that he lacks the gravity of the lower torso... IT looks like these tentacles aren't able to hold his body or move it.. I just think that you should just make them a bit bigger, or what jal said. :)

Hope that helps you somehow. :)

THAT must have taken forever. I agree with Doppleganger though.

It looks very unusual and interesting, can't get how it didn't reach the top of last month.

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/4/2007 04:09
Really love how squishy the head comes across. The arm movement and overall liveliness is really impressive!

It has your animation trademarks, but there's something about the palette (I think because you've been reserved enough not to overdo it with black) that shows your development here over previous works.

Great sprite!

very nice, love the newer animated version

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 3/1/2007 07:27
Gave it a bounce update.
Thanks for the critiques, everybody. More would greatly appreciated, though...

Thanks again.

Wondering what is it doing? Pooping?=))

Like the colors, blinking part is just adorabale,  nice work , man.=)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/1/2007 04:13
Some (well most) of this is greatly designed and envisioned, not to mention colored and animated. I too can't pinpoint what is missing here, but this feels incomplete somehow. Perhaps the undersides of the tentacles don't weigh it down enough because the color is the same all around them. The suit seems of the right weight and the head, with the exception of the 'jump/stop' works well too. It must be something in/on the tentacles. Still cool though.

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 2/28/2007 15:26
Its a great animation, very original character design
I dont like how its head stops as it blinks, makes it all a little bit less fluid, but its not a technical fault or anything.

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/28/2007 15:04
hey, that's pretty nice. i would only suggest fixing the jumpy highlights on the gear. pretty much all of them are warping a bit too much. i would like to see more fluidity, esp. on the highlights at the bottom.

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/28/2007 13:46
He's a cute one!

Most of the tentacles seem to grow and shrink through out the animation, especially the center tentacle.

Other than that, the animation doesn't seem to coincide with itself. It's very random feeling and I think that it keeps me from understanding it completely. My mind perhaps, is trying to fill in what's not there. I can't say exactly what isn't there but something's missing.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/28/2007 13:19
Adorable! What does it eat?
It's brilliantly animated, however I noticed a few glitches...
First, the dark green shadow up on the head is illogical when the alien bobs it's head to the left (it's left side).
The other glitch is the second tentacle from the left (our left), it darkens suddenly in one frame.
Hope this helps :D

So freaky, wonderfully done.

Luca (Level 5 Trash) @ 2/28/2007 11:44
awsoem...cool animation

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/28/2007 11:14
Pretty animation, looks very organic and smooth. Fun to look at.

Biffo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/28/2007 10:36
I like it.  Particularly the character design.

Radek (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/28/2007 10:06
Nice animation of tentacles ... but i think, that this gear is from metal not from rubber :) ... but, really good job
