Well quite awhile ago, mabye a year I figured out a technique for animating 3d ground all in paint

I don't really remember much but I think this is how it goes

First: Make a square

Second: Stretch/skew the square horizontally

Third: Do that with more squares, but with each square getting closer to the center stretch/skew it less horizontally

Fourth: (If a 2 color checkerboard just easily push the black/white color a few pixels, and replace that empty spot with the other color

Fifth: Once you have them all animated see if they go together by resizing each row to fit the row below

Sixth: Put every animation on each of the rows identical to the other animations, (you might mostly not do it perfectly though)

Seventh: Now use a gif animator to see what you have done, then ending result may not be that nice to look at though.

Also I didn't really focus on looks for this one, just animation, sorry if it is all blocky everywhere that's how it came out.

Oh yeah and in all, there are 14 frames

is it bad though, it's just something old I made and I'm not to fond of it anyway

Reminds me of Skyroads. :)
This piece is nothing special though, I might even call it bad.

All this sketching and skewing and resizing sounds rather unpixelart to me.

Look like the star wars text at the start when it explains everything lol

people should start using this for walk animations

hmm, that would make this more interesting to look at, thanks for that

it looks so simple, but i think youve put some work in it... it really looks like its moving towards you... maybe add wallas on both sides, and make it longer animation...?
