I'm working with the NES palette, but 4 colors per sprite (instead of the 3 colors required by the NES limitations).

 Thx Micha! It is out of sync, but just one frame ;)

The small legs are so smooth <3  : D if only the tail could be a bit out of sync with the hair

Megaman's sprite had 5 colours, but it consists of 2 OAM objects, basically 2 superimposed sprites. Contra does the same where the topbody is a seperate sprite from the legs. This sprite could easily be in an NES game!

 Oh ho! I can't wait for the next one to come out!

@nvision:  You're right! I took some freedoms on this point ;)

 Not to nitpick (I'm just being a jackass, here) but aren't NES sprites limited to three colours, plus one background/transparency colour?  The sprite is lovely, though, great motion in the legs :)

Now I can't unsee it :(
A related issue is the 4 unmoving pixels to the left of it.

Adorable sprite nevertheless =)

I meant the one pixel thats trans and where the lineart jumps one pixel on/off underneath the butt lightlight.

 @jalonso: oh no, I removed an annoying pixel, but now I think you were talking about another one…

Woaaa! I love the smooth animation. Congrats. Very good job.

The breast bounce sells it.
The ponytail and the tail are hilarious to me also. The whole creature just fills me with joy.

johanvinet (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/12/2013 06:11

 @jalonso: I agree! Good bye annoying pixel ;)

tiagocc0 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/12/2013 06:06

 Adorable, a centaur with a ponytail on it's head is disturbing though =D

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/12/2013 06:02

That single pixel space where the back legs meets the body is incredibly annoying :/

I'm unsure if the tail and hair having the same animation looks good or not...every 3 seconds I change my mind.
