*edit* I lowered the helmet by one pixel and edited in some movement to body and head.

A mega man inspired sprite for a small project. Pretty happy with how i managed to make well use of the 16x16 space. The gun will come out when shooting, from idle, running and jumping. The fps is a bit off since i wanted all moves in one gif.

Critique is welcome as i am a beginner and still learning.  

If colors are off, i blame burned out monitor.

Nice work. Trying to contact you via private messges. Have some questions

Bitslap (Level 7 General Manager) @ 4/24/2013 12:56

 I never got to reply to this. Worth mentioning is that i came to PJ late 2011 to look for inspiration. I was awestruck and decided to never give up. I have always stayed true to a specific format and have had game ideas in mind when i practice. Fast forward 1½ year and i suddenly got there. 

Never give up

 Very nice character!

 A follow-up post: these sprites exemplify so many of the traits I've sought in my own sprites---the character design, the expressiveness, the movement, the colors, cartoony-ness, visibility/understandability, even the size of the sprites. I hope I'll be able to emulate you (and many other PJ users) in achieving these attributes!

16x16 is what i use for practicing pixel art. I believe limitations are something i grow from.
The bomb is uploaded and 24x24.

 A fellow supporter of 16x16 sprites!? :D

Any chance you could post the explosion sprite on your website? I want to fave it for reference!

Bitslap (Level 7 General Manager) @ 4/14/2013 07:14

 Thank you. I will see if i can fix the issue later. 

I think the head is even better now, a more subtle turn.

Lunch (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/14/2013 07:10

 I would say the head moves a little too much now, it is completely in synch with the hand which gives the impression that the arm isn't moving. However I like the colours and the run animation is otherwise looking great.

Bitslap (Level 7 General Manager) @ 4/14/2013 06:48

 I added some movement to the head and body. Looks more fluid now. Is it OK to make update to gallery pieces or should i have added it as another piece?

It looks so cute.


snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/13/2013 20:23

 love this! perhaps more head movement would be nice?

dragonheartman (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/13/2013 15:21

 Very nice animation here, especially considering you only had 16x16 to work with.

 Really sweet, hope to see more of this guy :)

Cute, cute, cute!

Bitslap (Level 7 General Manager) @ 4/13/2013 08:43
