what's that? a hamster? O.o

 The animation is astounding, I'm very much interested in this game you're working on. I do hope to see something about it in the future.

are you working further on it? :-O


i hope so really! 

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/25/2009 21:48

 You did a great job.  I like the way you made his face with the long nose and the animation is quite good overall.


My only critique for you is that I don't quite like the wavy energy/speed lines that wisp up as he's drawing the sword up for the downward slash... it would be better, I think, if it were just blurred, like with lines parallel to the sword, if you know what I mean.

very smooth animation, nice job :o

i want to see the game ;)

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 9/25/2009 13:28

Snazzy. So, what's the game?

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 9/24/2009 21:10

Took a while to make out the face, I didn't expect such a big head. The shield goes from square to round during the anim. Do the horns on the helmet point forward during the first swing? All very well done.

Yogurt (Level 6 Centaur) @ 9/24/2009 19:03

quite sexy, quite sexy indeed.

pkjo (Level 4 Deputy) @ 9/24/2009 18:04

This worked out pretty well... I never thought such a small character could move with the fluidity and detail that it does.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 9/24/2009 02:16

Nice animation though I don't like the actual sprite anywhere near as much as your other one.

Xion Night (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/23/2009 14:01

oh I think I see what's going on with the arms now. 

strangles (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/22/2009 23:27

Great animation...

Xion Night (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/22/2009 19:38

face was a bit hard to read at first, especially with it getting covered completely by the shield for so long and often, and it's a bit hard to follow his arms, it seems, particularly when the blade goes behind the head.

the actual motion and rendering etc is all real sweet, though.

IceGladiator (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 9/21/2009 10:28

Not only is the animation awesome but thats a pretty cool character to!

SAB-CA (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/21/2009 04:50

Very slick. Love the latent energy the slashes leave behind. Liquidy!

Jakman4242 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/20/2009 22:33

Very fluid animation, excellent inertia carried throughout.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 9/20/2009 22:32

Nice anim and the effects are really good especially on the first hit.

My one comment is that the second hit comes from a pose that doesn't  seem to show any anticipation.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/20/2009 17:10

this is slick. nice job.

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/20/2009 16:47

this is great.  I wish I could do sprites like this

xXHalfieXx (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 9/20/2009 16:39

Love this animation!

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/20/2009 14:54

 I love it.

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 9/20/2009 12:23

this is gonna be in the weekly showcase :P

Tyvon (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 9/20/2009 11:09

Very smooth. Love it. 

Brod (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/20/2009 11:09

 Very good job, I can feel the force of his swings with my eyes, it's awesome.

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 9/20/2009 08:25

Smooth animation.
