I couldn't sleep tonight for some reason. And since all the games were played, all the sites were visited, I had nothing left to do but pixel something :)

And while I didn't plan to pixel and animate a character at once I got carried away and spent ~10 recent  hours working on this animation.

I hope you like it :)


Edit: his left arm fixed. I just uploaded an earlier state.

The head looks really like in 3D!

Killsick (Level 1 Private) @ 10/12/2012 04:25

 Haha, this is great! Pure awesome! I love it ♥

Weasly Grizzly (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/20/2012 14:35

Epic win!

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/18/2012 07:32

Pyro has that blue lightsource as well :)

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/18/2012 05:19

 soldier is the only one with a shadow and blue lightsource. honestly I think it look best without the blue light. good job great animations!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 5/17/2012 10:55

That face is amazing!

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/17/2012 06:10

Please keep on dancing Gas!

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/16/2012 15:05

 So happy! I love your jobs.

Win. Win. Win.

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/16/2012 10:36

 Good pixeling, mate! Appreciate it. [/sniper's voice]

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/16/2012 10:16

Mrmo Tarius, hehe that's nice. Now I see that the head of the solly is too large :D

Gecimen, he was also compared to James Hugh Calum Laurie and Woody Allen :) I'm not the creator of the character anyway :)

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/16/2012 07:51

He looks like Maynard James Keenan...

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 5/16/2012 01:00

[subliminal persuasion] make all 9 classes [/subliminal persuasion]

also, a version with the Pyro and Soldier dancing side to side would be absolutely awesome :)

*edit* like this, haha:
**sub-edit** added the Heavy ;D

Dweller (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/16/2012 00:32

Fantastic, waiting for your Heavy dancing version

Partack (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/15/2012 23:47

 5 stars for this. i laughed so hard.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 5/15/2012 19:40

Thanks for the nice comments, guys!

Faceless, thanks for pointing on problem places.

st0ven, thanks, really glad to hear it from you. Interesting, I was thinking about the welcoming girl on your site while working on this - I thought I should check the way you worked on the trouser creases. But I was too excited to show it up as soon as all the parts were animated :)

dumbo, there's no idea behind it :) Just another dancing character from my favourite game.

Peelz, yeah it need work. I animated hand before the body movements and then I was adjusting the position of the hand and actually failed here :( Thanks for pointing that out.

Cyangmou, thanks for your comment, I always enjoy reading thought out comments like this one. Lighting on the legs is too contrast, probably that's the problem. Electric baclighting didn't add anything in my opinion so I removed blue pixels. 6 to go, yep. Never planned to complete them all though but I like the way it goes - 1 per year :D

Losm (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 5/15/2012 13:59

 But they do air-hump, it seems.

Dastal (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/15/2012 13:22

His expression is really amusing.  

Mille (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 5/15/2012 11:15

Expression, or the lack of it makes this quite comical. Shoulder movement is the only thing bothering me on that, but it's been pointed out before.

Cyangmou (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 5/15/2012 09:39

face and hat are awesome.

The left arm is terrible, the right arm is ok although I am missing shoulder movement (deltoid should move up)  - because of this it looks a bit awkward.

And I don't really get how your cast shadow at the legs, especially at his right foot/shoe is working

I am not sure but I also think that it'd be an idea to make the neck one or 2 pixels shorter or maybe it's the bright color you used at the neck which is bothering me.

I am also wondering why you don't added your light electric blue backlighting this time

However, don't really mind all the minor nitpicks, it's really great work. If I am right there are 6 to go for the complete crew =)

Peelz (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/15/2012 09:14

 Absolutely fantastic :D

The arm on his hip doesn't quite move with the animation though methinks.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/15/2012 09:07

I could look at this all day!

Love it! Don't get it, but still love it!

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/15/2012 08:26

excellent sprite. For me it's the reflection on the glasses that does it.

Alex Pang (Level 7 Underboss) @ 5/15/2012 08:12

 You need to make a spy dancing behind him :)

Oh wait, spies never dance!

st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 5/15/2012 08:02

gorgeous work, i particularly enjoy the face as when you zoom in to view it appears to have great depth, almost a 3d quality to it.

Faceless (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/15/2012 07:41

This is pretty awesome. The animation on his right ear could use some reworking though and I don't think the highlight on his left leg should completely disappear.

TKNy (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/15/2012 06:56

Made me giggle :)
