The second of three states.  the first is in my gallery somewhere.  This one is his attack stance.  any feedback would be appreciated for this guy or the last one. It's 15 colors plus transparency and 17 unique (barely, just the hand is different for half the cycles) frames of animation.  Its set at 5 delay now, but ie may display it 6 which looks alomost the same

Man this is awesome, I used to want to be a ninja so badly when I was a kid. Man we need ninja movies to make a come back in a bad way.

  You HAVE to make some more pixel-works! Rare are pixelart animations of this quality!

Really nice and smooth animation. Only thing you should work on a bit is the hind leg when it's contracting.

Perfect 6/6 most awesome animation, plenty of subtle detail I like the finger movement. :) And ooo sooo smooth ;)

I did notice a slight strange hump on the hind leg that forms, that looks weird..

Great animation, even down to the fingers!

Ooooh! I like! Very nice animation and a really wicked stance! I'd love to see more of this guy!

Wow! The animation is awesome! )) The ninja-character is cool as well...

still too fast eh?  i wonder if its a display thing.  If anyone cares to, download it and play with it until you get a speed you like and tell me what you prefer.  I happen to like it at delay 3 but it gets really annoying after a while and is sort of unfit for a game.  i also like 5 and 6 but 5 a little more. thanks again folks.

Nice animation but  it does look a little fast though

Labbe100 (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/28/2008 12:08
wow I want to play with this guy, Hit, run grip and jump !

well, i can certainly reduce the color count by one no prob.  i'm not really going to for the j-fighting game / cel anime  look (even though he does look like spidey :you were right rush, i should've used it as a ref it would've gone faster AND be cooler).  as cool as capcom and kof sprites are, i don't want this guy to look cartoony.  I was thinking more of sierra adventure game sprite style, only a little more filled out.  I like his sort of oil paint muddled look. But i'd like to hear why you would like less colors?  is it personal pref for that style or the idea of color conservation?  I also got used to looking at him with a longer delay on ie so i changed that.  I messed with the hand some because I don't like it (still) and dropped that one redundant color out.  now its 15 colors.  Like I said in my other piece, This is the first digital art I've done since mario paint, so I really appreciate the feedback.  You guys have a lot of experience and were right about the speed and are probably right about the colors, I'd just like to know why to speed up the learning curve.  Thanks!

Very impressive animation, 5/5

Rush (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/28/2008 09:53
I like it, reminds me of spider-man from Marvel vs. Capcom. So you get bonus nostalgia points

Stan20 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/28/2008 07:25

Luca (Level 5 Trash) @ 7/28/2008 06:25

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/28/2008 06:15
