Thanks for the comments. That's a nice edit andy, thanks! The whole project started with a collection of 5 colour coded monster sprites which I rattled through in a fit of excitement! I'll be revisiting them for sure before animating. Just goes to show there is always room to improve something!

This is an amazing piece cure. The use of colour is magnificent!

Thanks all, turns out it's actually 11 colours, That's what I get for doing most of my work in Photoshop and not checking it before posting!

Love the clever technique mate. It's still hurting my brain trying to work it out now! :)

Super! so much charm from so few pixels.

All my pixel animation is done in Promotion 4.7 mate.

Haha, unbelievably no! This was supposed to be a simple thing to test out GameMaker and see what I could do with it! I ended up just focusing on the mockup instead! 



user

I am indeed a welshy mate! The mockup is all hand assembly. I tend to animate my character loops, get over-excited and then formulate some rudimentary backdrops and other details and put it all together.

The clouds are a fair bit faster than the other layers. This was mainly because I had a lot of  force in the animation hitting the characters hair and shroud like there was a lot of wind or he was travelling at speed.

I wanted something in the environment to reflect this but do accept it may jar with the other layers of parallax (I should have just had the environment travelling quickly as if at speed but don't think this will be true to how it would be in-game!). Thanks for the comments! :)

Hehe, I rarely use anything else for animating pixels but my default state is to abuse the software I love the most sorry!

Absolutely marvellous. The timing and sense of weight is completely brilliant. So much character!

Aye, I thought if he was static it would be a bit too lifeless. Part of the problem here is that anim becomes a bit more 'idle' like at the proper frame rate. I had such a nightmare getting it to display once I was too afraid to correct the framerate and submit it again.

I went through a couple of iterations of the idle animation and (believe it or not!) this was the best one that served my purposes to finish the challenge in time (I didn't want too many frames in it as I wanted to pixel each outfit piece on top of the naked idle)

The full animation is playing at the speed I intended but I do take your point. Even then its a bit wobbly (and "for animations sake" could certainly be my mantra, I am guilty of that quite often :)  )

Anyway, Thanks for your comments one and all!

Ok, finally got this working.. Had to severly trim it down in the end (from 470 frames to 90 or so!)

Still.. Lesson learned! Try to be a fancy smart ass with 400 frames and you get what you deserve! :)

Just got it down to 3 meg but still no joy. My own fault! Got carried away with this one.
