This is some contract work for an undisclosed title (permission granted to post).

Four frames per character (25x25pix; 3 idle, one attack frame) not including projectiles or kicked-dust. Interesting animation task. I tried to make the idle frames serve as warm-up attack frames also, but using a walking-idle animation would have also been a good idea retrospectively to avoid all the sliding about.

No palette restrictions and separate colour scales for hair and certain clothing elements for easy palette swapping, hence a lot of redundant colours.

Not sure if this project came to fruition or not, sorry. I didn't do much more work on it.

I know I am digging an old work but it looks awesome. Can you say something more about the game?

Awesome, just awesome! :D

I examined it a lot on DeviantArt :) Great work!

Wow, everything is so readable. The mage is brilliant, all of this is awesome!

It looks like they're dancing! :D

Looks like a fun game.

blaster (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 4/10/2014 02:25

Good question! I didn't decide it, and didn't really think about it.

president_skeleton (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/10/2014 00:35

Okay, I have to ask -- why 25x25?  That's a reeeally unusual resolution for this sort of thing.  24x24 I could understand, but 25?

Whatever the resolution, it looks great at this size.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/9/2014 14:26

Insane what you can do with 4 frames!!

Franuka (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 4/9/2014 08:46

Fantastic :)

Pomb (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/9/2014 07:06

awesome, I love the arc the bone travels and the effect of the blue orb, good work!

Wow cool

blaster (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 4/9/2014 04:08

Thanks guys!

These sprites are excellent for the size, in my opinion! Absolutely readable! And also you made the right decision regarding the palette restrictions. Making graphics for games is way different from a unique piece you show here in PixelJoint for fun. Having separate colour scales for each sprite part is very important when adjusting colors later for all sprites in order to get an homogeneous result. Grat job!

Phoenix849 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/8/2014 23:39

Oh, such cuties!

Lapada (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/8/2014 21:47

vary cool

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/8/2014 20:52

Lovely!! Some of the nicest looking sprites I've seen at that size. Didn't realize there is only one frame per attack, they still have lots of character.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/8/2014 20:36

Incredibly impressive for the imposed restrictions!  You managed to still keep great character in each sprite :)

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/8/2014 18:14

Fitted weirdly well with the rhythm of the song I was listening to c:. Great sprites!
