personally, I like the not uber smooth animation.  It has more nostalgia :-)

 well, it's really awesome.

Ah, 4 frames is the max for the game so I can't add more. And yes, undesired motion, i couldn't fix it so I'm redoing it :<

hooo, nice one arch.

you can add more hilite for the hair, and the weapon end seems to changing length

Nice sprite! Maybe you could add a couple of frames to make the movement smoother... ;)

P.S.: is the weapon bending on purpose or is some kind of undesired motion?

I'd definetly make the animation more subtle, especially if its an idle anim. right now it looks like hes trying to dance or something.

nice colours and design though.

i love the style of the character and the colors but the animation doesnt seem really smooth, you should change the delay time between each frame.

Fav because I'm a sucker for dual swords.

And the sprite looks great =D

If you have a four frame limit try using saving your frames as .pngs then use and after uploading, try using to change the frame rates (you can upload animated gifs there too)

I wasn't aiming for her to be just breathing that's why~ I wanted to put emphasis on how the weapon is pretty heavy and yet very wieldy :D

@Chrispy, I always have bad timing for GIFs and have 4 frame limit for a reason, ah well :(


TioLuko (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/14/2010 04:10

I love the way that you did it, color, shading, is all very well made, but I disliked the animation :/


Pretty cool job^^

See ya

 character looks preetty nice (especially head), but animation is too harsh and wierd - why does she move her leg? Idle animations are mostly breathing animations, and this doesn't feel like breathing :)

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/14/2010 01:37

I don't like the way the hair moves, and the animation would be smoother if it were faster or had more frames.
