Working along the same lines as the little wizard, here's a wee warrior in an 8 frame walk cycle. Again, going for the same nice animation in a low resolution sprite...
Animation looks great.
Wow. The resolution's so low but the character is so realistic, readable and believable. You are the man
This is awesome.
|||| took the words right out of my hands. Well done!
Nice walking frames Absinthelord.
Nice animation of the frames.
Real good in every way.
I have a single nitpick on the sword because you have used several colors in all other areas. If the sword darkened in the jaggy part so that it would reflect and show moving into and out of her body plane as she walks it would make it even better because a single color indicates the sword just moving forward and backwards on the same plane. It could also have a specular shine as it moves too.
Your hard work paid off; the sprite's animation looks fluid and realistic given the limitations, and the color scheme works well in making all the details readable and distinct.
Yay for 8 frame low res walk cycles. :)
