I know, the barrel wobbles unnaturally, but there's nothin wrong with a bit of exaggeration right? I was bored so i decided i'd finish this and upload it... i've been working on rustbug stuff lately, mainly just random stuff to get myself back into pixelling. I suddenly found myself detesting this 'chunky' version and really liking the classic (original) style. But then i found this animation and quite liked it. Blaah.

EDIT: Added a "catwalk" animation for the detail file! (It isn't perfect, but i didn't spend too long on it so lalala). Preview file has 8 frames.

This is beyond words awesome. Excellent job, and impressive animation details.

 it's so cool, i like robots

MCSuire (Level 1 Intern) @ 10/18/2010 21:34

It's very cool. I love little robots like these.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 11/30/2008 21:47
Thanks :) Please check out my newer rustbug design if you haven't already. It does have a larger colour count but i think it's of higher quality.

Arrow-1 (Level 2 Peon) @ 11/30/2008 20:58
And to think it's only nine colors. o_o Very, very good job.

DraKenZ (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/13/2008 02:42
Walking Rustbug... and Backward...

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 6/2/2008 04:14
Damn good animation! I cannot see any faults in the movement.

Pixel-Pusher (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 5/30/2008 14:27
Can I make a game with this?

Beefies (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/26/2008 19:34
Beautiful. This will be my avatar.

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 11/20/2007 10:20
Made a game out of it yet?
If not, let me XD

Demon (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/15/2007 16:00
Look at that hot piece of machinery strut his stuff!@

EvolMate (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/28/2007 09:59
Beautiful animation. I love that.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 8/18/2007 16:35
Wow... Larwick, have you ever tried setting that animation as a desktop background to your computer? :p Looks very cool.

Rynen10K (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/31/2007 15:14
Crazy! I LOVE the weight the legs convey when then step!


MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/30/2007 19:23
I really enjoy the timing of this one, and the simple, effective design looks great

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/28/2007 23:52
I'm not a big fan of the broken outlines on the legs, other than that though, great work.

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/28/2007 08:45
chunky style = <3

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 7/27/2007 05:43
rustbug = cool :D

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/26/2007 16:20
Thanks everyone! :D
@Skull: Nah, i don't think i'd bother with that (lol) but it is a neat idea :) And don't get your hopes up about rustbug coming back... too much.
@orb: I don't think i could pull off 2 subpixel frames each way, or if i did it wouldn't be any better. (I might try it someday if i'm bored..)
@rabidbaboy: I actually did start with a jittery bob for the barrel (accidentally) but although it kinda worked i think it would've been too distracting or something...
@fawel: I thought i'd leave them in for the sole sprite
@bigbro: Rustbug thread maybe? The animation was done quite a while ago but i didn't submit it (or add the barrel) till now.

Jooble (Level 2 Peon) @ 7/26/2007 12:46
Jeeesus lar, Amazing ;D

InfernoMan.EXE (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/25/2007 16:53
Wow i love it!
Instant fav and +5

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 7/25/2007 08:24
I feel like I've seen this before... somewhere... Looks good though.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/25/2007 04:07
It's moving so well. Especially the furtherest leg - it's rotating (they all do but that one do it the best way) and that's great.

AdamAtomic (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2007 21:48
hot :)  nicely done L!

fawel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2007 19:44
You should remove the block outlines on the bottoms of his feet. Looks good!

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/24/2007 19:10
Chunky version ftw!

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/24/2007 17:16
Return of the Rustbug, great animation. 

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/24/2007 17:11
Needs a jittery bob.:)
And I agree, the barrel wobbles too much.

It's still ace work.

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2007 13:25
lol at you saying it wobbles a bit unnaturally. like there is a real walking tank out there that you used as a source and it didn't wobble as much.

who cares. i think this is amazing. great work.

orbofwisdom (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/24/2007 13:16
Heh, the barrel looks pretty strange when zoomed in, but looks alright at 1x. Not sure how it would look if the wobbling was limited to just subpixelling, but that might look interesting.

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/24/2007 13:01
amazing. just amazing 5/5

gambit1234 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/24/2007 12:58
oooooh! thats tight!

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/24/2007 12:52
wery nice design and animation !!respekta!!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/24/2007 11:40
Ooh right.. Rustbug is back. Fantastic animation.
Chunky version could be perhaps for snow or something harder to move through?

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/24/2007 11:31
looks good.  kinda reminds me of "advance wars" meets a turtle. 

Drako (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/24/2007 11:17
Very good movement. Respect.

Starchild (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/24/2007 10:18

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/24/2007 10:16
