Ptoing, thank you very much for your comment ^^ and for your advice "Press F1" and I say this without irony; I´m learning a lot, this month I´ve learned the use of the tiles in Promotion, and I´m impressed for this functionality, I hope to post soon my first mockup ^^

Reminds me of the heads in Spirited Away! 

The easing is pretty good on the opening but there should be a
least another frame before going back down, it's giving a snap feel.
Not the bite kind of snap, the kind where it's like an animation opening
it's mouth and that's the end of the animation so it opens it's mouth again
after reaching the top.

Anyways, top notch job.

Hahaha, this dude is awesome.  


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/27/2011 17:39

hehe It´s a pleasure X3.

You have good eye because is true, the best is the small; maybe by the size, and is the last and I´ve controlled the AA better. I need to redo the biggers, thanks!


user

 I saw this on dA (we meet here too x3) I love it, just the way it opens his mouth. the best one is the mini, so cute!


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/14/2011 07:34

I´m agree with you M, pillow like a rookie XD, this week I´ll remake it, and ad a new as a bonus (I´ll add a piece of brain in your honor ^^)


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 2/13/2011 01:20

Hmm, ya know what . . . the largest one is awfully pillow shady. It may enhance it a bit to move the strongest highlight color to more of the top of the shape it's right now in the middle of. Maek sence?


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/10/2011 16:05

Sneep29 - Thank you very much! I appreciate your comment ^^ and your new avatar is gorgeus!


user
Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/9/2011 13:15

Very smooth animation. What an accomplishment, it just looks perfect.


user
|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 2/2/2011 16:24

Maybe just make a size between it and the largest giving you 4 total

 


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/2/2011 08:06

thanks, but I´m thinking in increase the size of the middle, (maybe it isn´t a good scale) what do you think about this?

 


user
|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 2/1/2011 21:53

So cool! and three sizes available.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/31/2011 09:15

S.Barbarie - Thanks Snes was a sprites paradise ^^

Great idea,,, How do you imagine that P1-with a hammer?


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/31/2011 09:13

GormenGhast - Thanks, but sorry, I dont know that game, would you like to give me a link, please? thanks

GormenGhast (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/27/2011 11:51

Deeply creepy. Awesome. Reminds me of that crazily scary boss in Faxanadu that guarded the Black Onyx.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/21/2011 21:07

Mathias, thank you, but now I think the monster on the middle is too small, oh, and the really BIG version is in progress XD


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/21/2011 20:31

It multiplied! I loved scaled versions of things like this. Nice set. They look very hungry.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/20/2011 14:55

dumbo - thank you ^^ I´m near to finish this ^^


user
dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 1/20/2011 12:32

Very cool piece! I almost missed this one.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/20/2011 08:17

one more added, Im waiting your comments :)


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/19/2011 12:07

thanks, now I´m making the Final Boss version ^^


user
ASR (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/19/2011 10:05

Awesome work for a video-game ;)



user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/19/2011 08:31

its true,,, the eyes look a bit static, now I´m working on it, thanks! ^^


user
piiichan (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/19/2011 01:51

The colors are perfect now!

But the eyes look a bit static, what about making them more open when the mouth is open at its widest.

The small version is nice and readable


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/18/2011 15:37

I need your criticism of the child, thanks


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/18/2011 15:06

Thank you very much for appreciating this ^^ I´m tryng to make a technique with the more less frames-palette-shading. thanks again.


user
Mis-BUG (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/18/2011 13:53

Amazing... I really love how you managed this animation in four frames...


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/17/2011 18:27

Mathias ,thanks, its like our Big Fat Upload Collab XD


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/17/2011 18:25

@Drazelic - Thank you very much thanks to your advices


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/17/2011 18:14

Big FAT improvement!


user
Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/17/2011 17:30

I like it! The decision to change the green innards to black helps a lot too and brings the piece together.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/17/2011 12:13

Drazelic - Now I´ve done what you said, Please would you like to tell me how it looks now? thanks ^^


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/17/2011 12:10

Mathias- now he bites, but I´m thinking about spit... I dont know yet...

IIII- Thank you ^^

 


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/17/2011 10:24

sorry, someone knows why in my gallery says "user" ?? I can´t see my preview XD


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/17/2011 10:12

Nvision, Thank you very much, is true, Now it looks great, I dont forget this on the future, thanks


user
|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 1/16/2011 18:48

Nose moves so well. good angles


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/16/2011 18:26

2 - Oh, he's spitting, that's different. If you added some spitty saliva or something launching out from his mouth when it opens it would clear that up. Right now, it's confusing.


user
nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/16/2011 17:26

Try swapping out the darkest colour outline along the top of the head, and perhaps on the cheekbone, with a lighter tone from your shadows.  It will give better depth/sense of lighting and negate the need for more AA along those areas (which is where aliasing is most noticeable).


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/16/2011 17:18

Mathias -

1 -I´m working on the eyes,

2 -ok, at the start I cant select ( he bite or spit, now is more like a spit, is that you mean?)

3 - any suggestion? thanks


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/16/2011 16:28

Funny monster. The eyes seem unfinished, especially eye on right when the mouth opens.

Seems like he should close his mouth when he thrusts forward, as if to bite, not close it when he seats back down.

The bright green in the mouth doesn't work for me.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/16/2011 15:58

Piiichan - "Some highlights on the cheek bones..." - Im working on it now, thanks ^^

"Love the color of the teeth," - me too, I´ve tried 20 variations XD

"but is the green inside the mouth serving any purpose?" I think its a dark magic, or toxic gas, I dont know yet, you don like it?    and thanks for your comments ^^ 


user
piiichan (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/16/2011 15:51

Some highlights on the cheek bones and forehead might be good.

Love the color of the teeth, but is the green inside the mouth serving any purpose?


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/16/2011 14:52

Nvision, Thank you , but I really dont understand "Might benefit from some minor selective outlining along the top edge" would you like to explain me this comment again?, thank you ^^


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/16/2011 14:49

Vaya, pues a menos que sean hermanos, (si no, caeríamos en incesto [ q para algunas series esta bien ^^U ]) deberíamos presentarlos a ver que pasa (esto no es un payaso, es un actor de Kabuki)


user
nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/16/2011 14:37

Feels felshy and solid...very good work.  Might benefit from some minor selective outlining along the top edge.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/16/2011 14:30

Drazelic - Thank you very much, I think you´re right, I´m working on it


user
Mochimandias (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 1/16/2011 13:28

Joder que miedo da , parece lo que hay debajo de mi cama


user
Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/16/2011 12:46

I'm not sure I like how the nose is the only part to use the lightest color in the pallete. Spreading it across the forehead at least may be interesting.


user
Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/16/2011 10:08

eyadan - Muchisimas gracias compañero, y te deseo feliz año por cierto, aprovecho que este es mi Facebook jeje

Drako - thank you very much ^^
