April Fool!

For the weekly Challenge of emulating other artist.

Emulating TheRobinHood's style on his robot sprites, they all look cute so I decided to came out with the Caterpillarbot.

The caterpillar looked stiff when it moves though. But anyway, made this for fun and practice animating.

Edit: Fixed to make it less stiff and more moving. Reduced one frame.

Haha, okay!

Lol, haha I didn't notice that. Thanks for pointing out though but it's kinda too late to fix it now that the voting phase has started. Think of it as the faulty steam pump since it's a bot. :D

This is really nice - I expecially like the texture on the sides of the segments, and the circle pattern in the side of the ground.

(don't know if you noticed, but the first segment behind the head jitters a bit as he compresses)

If you'd like it considered for inclusion in the actual game, just post it at the thread!  ;)

Fixed it a little.

Can't say it's a good fix, but at least better than the previous one I guess.

The one frame stop was on purpose I guess, I thought caterpillars usually stopped for awhile each time they moved.

Regardless, I'll try to fix those up.

Agree with M. Lucanius.  You can also see the scroll stop for one frame...

Nice animation and sprite otherwise :)

It expands from the center because I simply just reverse its animation, maybe I'll try to fix that later. xD

It may be stiff because it expands from the center rather than ripples... such a caterpillar would be stuck in one spot.
