Shocked?
A redux of the Rustbug sprite, and i think i've finally found what i was aiming for. The chunky sprite was fun, but it wasn't efficient, it was too fat and hard to animate. So i introduced the good aspects of the orginal Rustbug sprite (the agile look) and those of the chunky Rustbug sprite (the solidity) and gave it a clean up and wash of more intense colours.
This will hopefully be used in the 'Rustbug game'.

Great animation. It strongly reminds me of Dragoons.

I can't believe I haven't commented here yet! This is one of my favorite pj avatars. Definitely on my top list, along with jalonso's and fawful's.

 This character has looked great since the first sprite. In some ways I like the original look. But this one really has perfect animation! :D

Can't wait to play the Rustbug Game!

i like this. it gave me the idea of a high tech side scrolling rts xD very nice.


user
TheChan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/3/2010 01:38

To be honest I prefer the older rustbug to this one.

 I have loved your rustbug 'character' ever since I laid eyes on it while lurking on pixel joint. Keep up the good work. Maybe one day I'll be this awesome at spriting.

that jump is funny

Thanks Arrow! Yeah, you could say i simplified the feet/legs, but i think it's for the best. Thanks for the interest :D

user
Arrow-1 (Level 2 Peon) @ 11/30/2008 21:52
This is great! The colors are better than the old one for sure, much more vivid, and the curved border piece between the orange and black is much better rounded, but I think the legs lost a little of the definition the other one hand. Unless you redesigned that portion on purpose. Regardless, very nice!

really digging the new paintjob here, the more vivid colours are great.
great detail and animation there, goes to favs :D

user
neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 10/2/2008 22:14
A real work of art.
7/8 (the -1 is because I think the AA on the near legs could be clearer -- might even be better to have LESS of it)

user
Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 10/2/2008 10:10
This is just pure art.

I respect that. Take your time.

user
DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 9/30/2008 17:15
Man I loved the chunky version and was sad when you said you were leaning back towards the original style again. What you've done here is exactly what you said, melded the best of both together and tied it up with your latest level of skill. Great job man, I'm looking forward to a game someday...maybe by the time my kids can play it =P

user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 9/30/2008 16:57
Oh Halfie i wouldn't put a date on it. Years, years... very casual.

user

awezomenezzzz~

I realy like the colors. seem more vibrant. seems I have to alter the lady to the current style ;)

user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 9/30/2008 09:30
Yeah, how it goes up? As wrong as it is i just kinda like it. Still, there's always a chance i'll change it someday.

user
Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 9/30/2008 09:17
for someone reason that shooting sequence doesnt seem to be right... they way the cannon answers to the drawback...

user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 9/30/2008 09:10
Thanks guys.
@PixelSpy: The idea is still there, for when the Rustbug double-jumps. However i've still gotta work on that animation. So don't worry!

user
Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/30/2008 09:08
I see that jump improvement nice going man. <3 Fav'd

user
PixelSpy (Level 5 Captain) @ 9/30/2008 08:09
What a great improvement! The new colors are so much sharper and the anim is very smooth. Only one thing, why did you decide to remove the thrust boost animation when he jumps? I kinda liked that.
