Full animation here:


(Thanks to the lovely skamocore for the help!)


This is part of a longer animation (trimmed it down as it wasn't uploading). I didn't want to opt automatically for a battle sequence which is what I usually would have done so I've gone with a mock-up of equipping a character.

Got completely carried away with the mechanics of it and the final thing is too busy but i'm pretty happy with it anyway!

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!

Great use of color and detail here, and the costume selector is excellent.  My only issue is with the strange animation choice for the character; he seems to be wobbling around purely for animation's sake rather than in any natural, idle-animation sort of way.  I don't think this 'hurts' anything, it just appears as a bit of a distraction to me is all.  Great stuff, in any case!


Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 9/8/2010 02:48

Looks really confusing. Love the animation on the character.

iMoose (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/6/2010 21:37

 I'm totally entranced. Never seen a better pixel animator. I watched the full one thousands of times.


wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/6/2010 14:38

dude you animations are the bomb man i love it .... thts going to be 1st plae =]

robotic76 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/6/2010 10:53

 I like the lights

blackmoondev (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/6/2010 09:21

 Cool one!

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 9/6/2010 06:20

This is amazing! Seriously the animations is so smoot the colours and pixel art are simple and attractive and it looks so proffesional. Well done, Now I want to see the rest of the game!

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/5/2010 17:07

The interface is very innovative and very well implemented. The animation is so smooth, really professional. The costumes, especially the ones in the link are fantastic. I suppose this deserves double awards, one from contest and one from monthly top 10.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/5/2010 14:28

Cool, really cool! But I think you should make it more funny.

I just don't like the BG.

weezllane (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/5/2010 14:12

THis is great.

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/5/2010 13:43

i second Reo

PRO stuff!! win.... 

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/5/2010 13:24

That preview should have a warning label.


I would have died if 'terminator underpants' was an option that came up.

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/5/2010 13:00

 Cool piece man, but the preview really ruins it.

jazcks (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/5/2010 12:52

haha very funny, amazing job

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/5/2010 12:41

this really is faaar more fantastic then the preview would suggest!

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 9/5/2010 12:33

Insane. Genius. Win.

bonehead11 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/5/2010 12:31

You got some animation talent, its just wow. The pixelart is nice and simple, but that animation is just so smooth...there are some issues like the lightness of those stones is done sloppy, you could make it to go according the curtain, not blink its light, blink its dark, there are some other small problems, lightning especially, but other than that great job, well done!!!

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 9/5/2010 12:26

You have to post the full animation somewhere and link to it in your description! I'd really like to see it!

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 9/5/2010 11:52

cool stuff! 

Delusion (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/5/2010 11:36

Wow! I love the style and the animation! good job :D

robnoyce (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 11:23

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! :)

robnoyce (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 11:10

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

robotic76 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 11:07

oh sorry lol

how big is your file ?

robnoyce (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 11:04

Yeah, thats what i've tried. It just wont go in there at the moment. It attempts to upload as normal but once its done only the preview image remains!

robotic76 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 11:01

 You must submit your preview where it is written "maximal size is 100x100" and upload the whole image in the other field.

robnoyce (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 10:49

Aye, the detail image is pretty big! Tried making it smaller but it doesnt matter how many times I resubmit it seems to be rejecting it!

robotic76 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/5/2010 10:40

 looks like you uploaded the preview instead of the main pixel art
