This was the end-version of the main character sprite for the Hangover II promotional movie launch game,  Crouching Monkey Hidden Chow.

He underwent several iterations, probably at least 10 - some very detailed, some VERY blocky, and even had half of his sheets done at twice this resolution and color depth, but this was the middle-of-the road version that was eventually decided upon for use as it was simple looking to keep the pixelly look they wanted, but not so undetailed so that he was still discernable.

This animation is a merge of a bunch of his animation states:

walk cycle - jump - jumpkick - crushed - idle - kick - punch - electrocuted - faint/death - burning death - electrocuted death - being hit

Here are some of the higher resolution states, the rest of the states weren't punched together because a call to change styles came up.

Another artist, the backgrounds were done by the time I jumped on board.

Actually, I got it to work somehow. it's a surprisingly entertaining game, I'm stuck trying to kill the monkey right now, hehe.  Did you make the backgrounds as well or was another artist hired for that?  Just curious.

 Yeah, I wish they would have hosted it another way, because half of the time the facebook age verification thing wouldn't actually register for me after a couple of weeks.  It's in the iTunes store for free, though, if you have any means to run apps from that!

ugh, I really wanted to try out this game, but no matter how many times I log in with Facebook it doesn't seem to register that I am older than 17.  Oh well, maybe my privacy settings are just really badass or something.

 Getting a serious 'Zombies ate my Neighbors' vibe from this.  Awesome stuff!

@jalonzo: dug up a link to it since it is on the itunes store now, if you have an iPod, iPhone, or iPad you can play it there.

@lucas_irineu: edited some of them into the description.

I might just have to get a facebook page just to play this.

Do you think you`d be able to show the higher res versions as well?
