Wow geeze finally submitting this! This little gal's the result of almost a full week of work! Huge shout out to everyone in my WIP thread and the challenge thread!


This thing wouldn't of been marginally as good as it is now without all of you! (as you can tell from my first animation attempt!)


By far my most complex animation yet, and I'm pretty satisfied with it. That said, totally not completely satisfied, and feel free to drop me a message in the WIP thread with any advice! I'll try to get it fixed up and added to after the challenge ends!


edit: Totally blown away by the response! Thanks everyone!

Wow! I'm completely amazed! Great job completing this. Her movements are interesting and eyecatching, and I love your idea of using headwings. Good work!

spbrunson (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/17/2012 22:10

I'm going to second the really cool blocking animation

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/17/2012 05:41

Oops, I almost didn't see it in the voting thread! Voted!

Muziak (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 9/16/2012 16:46

my mind has been blown to shreds. freaking amazing.

Since you posted the image I'll continue the halo issue here instead of the forum.

It's better but still not good. There's still some banding and it's not quite circular. And It's often an important aspect of a sprite to make it work with different backgrounds, meaning that you will have to be very restrictive and selective with outer AA (something I've been practicing & exploring myself recently). Typically, any sprite that works well with all backgrounds often become a better looking sprite in general.

Here's an edit to demonstrate this: (your original in the left column)

 I agree with buddy90 for the throwing animation, it lacks of strenght and dynamism. But the whole sprite and animation are great ! :D

This blocking animation is really really cute :)

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 9/16/2012 10:34

Looks adorable. I still think the throwing animation could be faster, but it's fine to leave it alone. I really love the shield.

arkoso (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/16/2012 10:22

Good to see you got her finished - turned out great Zeratanus!

Nevercreature (Level 9 Whale Shark) @ 9/16/2012 09:52

Wow! I'll vote for you!

RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 9/16/2012 09:52

It was a favorite ever since you first posted it in the challenge thread.

Terrify (Level 3 Chief) @ 9/16/2012 09:36

 My favorite entry. You definitely have my vote! So much well done animation,  and an awesome character design.

A2J2TIWARI (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/16/2012 09:29

A great piece! Innovative and smooth animation. I really like it.
