This character has absurdly stretchy legs and a dainty disposition. The latter trait is strange, considering he smacks his face straight into the ground with every step. Maybe he's learned to cushion the fall with his well-kept moustache.

I am uncertain about some color and shading choices, and the scrolling floor, so I'd be glad for advice from expert eyes. Still, I'm proud of my silly-walker; he was fun to make.

Also: Hello! I'm Jeffrey, new to Pixel Joint.

Really really funny, thank you for that!

I can honestly say this is the best walking animation I've ever seen.

 Cracks me up haha.

Mr. Paco (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/9/2010 18:20

Absurd! But that's what I love. =]

I think the slight pause at the height of each step, along with the hat bounce, is the perfect touch.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 11/7/2009 09:09

I think you should have come first mainly cos this is just so incredibly silly.  Good work.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 10/26/2009 08:58

Hehe, truly wierd, I like it. Welcome to pj.

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 10/26/2009 01:18

wow!! 1st pic and you won 2nd place!! keep goin' fella :D

andy0_0black (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/23/2009 22:03

 haha that's brilliant.

The only problem I see with it is that when he rises back up after smacking his face against the ground, his foot is not in front of him enough for it to propel him up without launching him forward. If his foot leads him by a bit before his leg stretches out, it may look a little more ...correct? 

Anyway great job

Gizmonicgamer (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/23/2009 09:39

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 10/19/2009 00:13

:D This made my day; I look forward to seeing more stuff from you.

Also: welcome.

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/18/2009 22:44

I love the way the rear leg shivers back into shape after retracting!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/18/2009 21:06

Very funny, perfect entry.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/18/2009 20:14

Wow, I love this. Full of character.

A vote for sure.

I think the scrolling ground is a grea idea to show movement, without him actually going anywhere.

Looking forward to more from you.

r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/18/2009 18:54

that certaintly is silly, I like it.
