Idle animation for a game I've been working on in various states for years now lol. I feel confident that this model is final however I don't know if the idle will work in gameplay. This was a test of sorts and I'm prepared to make a new one. I learned a lot from just this tiny idle. In fact my entire process and how I think about animation as a whole has changed because of this animation. Also the pixel model itself changed during the process of animating. Because of that I don't finalize my designs until they are animated. I am considering posting my steps on my tumblr soon.

I love the bounce to this! Very impressive. Cant wait to see the other animations for this little fellow. I agree the idle is hard to tell its a flame but we're looking without context so maybe the other animations like attack will help convey that without changing the idle animation.

Keep up the good work!

you caught me on my laziness @pix.Ed. Totally noted on the fire hair bit haha. Although hair chunks was what I intended. I'm playing with the idea of him being fire like. They will be more flame like in shape and color and form(rising and snapping up instead of falling down like lava) in his powered up state. I'll post an updated version at some point but as it stands now its good enough to go into the game and to give me an idea of what I want. I may completely change the whole idle pose and therefore animation. I don't know and that's the fun thing about it. I'm making videogames son! 

This animation as I said was a test of sorts and for my next animations they will be put into the game as 1 frame poses that strongly suggest what it looks like in animation. 

As for him looking feminine, well thats okay to me. I have tests of him with a more puffed out chest but I didn't like it.  ;^]

Thanks for taking the time to comment! You've given me more to think about.

 Smooth animation and nice spriting. I thought it was a female sprite until I read the title, it's pretty femenine in form. The hair does not read as flames or fire so it looks more like chunks it's hair and unidentifiable specs comming out of the head. At first glance I thought it was paint or some other liquid.
Again, I think it is an impressive animation and the sprite is very cool and kudos on the great work, it just reads quite different from what you intend.
Thank you for sharing.
