The first thing that came to my mind when thinking of Sun's personification is that it's a yellow dwarf.
So blondie shortie beardy futuristic charity worker, who gives free energy to anyone who needs, seems like a close one to me.

As for animation, I just drew 8 positions of left hand, right hand and mini-sun orb, plus 8 or 9 positions of the beard/mouth.
And then put them over static picture one by one.

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/29/2015 18:49

a still picture is easy enough to make. the animation, however, is something i have yet to effectively grasp. come to think of it, i'm still trying to improve my pixelling.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/29/2015 16:05

@BathMaster, Well, I've posted some WIP's on forum. Maybe those will help.

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/29/2015 08:45

how do you do it..!?

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/17/2015 12:33

Never heard of it. Probably because I'm more of the PC-gamer.
Looks nice though.

RunninBlood (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/17/2015 12:30

@Finlal, Cavorite

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/17/2015 12:11

@RunninBlood, which one?

rklesmit (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/17/2015 12:10


RunninBlood (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/17/2015 11:41

This reminds me of an ios game...

Fundo (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/17/2015 10:19

I'm in love with this one! I think he would make an amazing character for a game or something.

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/17/2015 02:49

Fantastic! And only 16 colours, that's very impressive!

AlcopopStar (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/17/2015 00:14

Great job man tons of character here.

feiss (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/16/2015 09:18

So great at so many levels!! Congratulations, great job! 

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 8/16/2015 08:02

Very well done! I love his beard!

gablp30stm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/16/2015 04:09

Awesome job nothing else to say 

jebii (Level 1 Seaman) @ 8/15/2015 16:27

dude this is siiick I love it so much.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 13:08

That's the best compliment.
Thanks, Jal.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 09:55

@Mandrill, yeah, I know about the legs. Couldn't think of a proper way to animate it.
Surely, dwarf could dance or walk, but I wanted to finish animation in this millenium.

And I won't be so sure about first place - yours and Drazelic's works are very hard to beat.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 09:50

@bobo, I knew that beard is the best part.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/15/2015 09:26

This is so beautiful both technically and creatively.

Mandrill (Level 9 Vice President) @ 8/15/2015 09:14

This is absolutely fantastic, sprite quality and colours are stellar!

The animation is superb, you really got a talent for making them very look fluid and organic. One minor nitpick though. I feel that the the pelvis region, the legs and that energy thing on his back appear a little bit too static.

Still, it's an amazing entry; no doubt it's going to place first this week.


I'm with geci and drawing on the preview. ;)

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 07:26

@drain, I shall try it, though it was hard enough to make it even that fluid.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 07:20

@ADrawingMan, Geci, I always had problems with previews.

MagicKoi (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/15/2015 06:56

It is well thought-out. : )

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/15/2015 06:53

What Gecimen said.

So much life in this sprite -great job!

91grinds (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/15/2015 06:30

The hand with the sun :)

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 8/15/2015 06:18

The preview is not attractive enough for this great sprite!

drain (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2015 06:16

omg yes

I really like how fluid the animation is. The gesture of the left hand seems out of context and out of place. I wasn't able to decipher what it was until I saw your comment. Perhaps make it less frequent and slower.

specialmin64 (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 8/15/2015 05:53

the energy's reflection in his right goggle is a nice touch

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 05:41

It is supposed to be gesture showing people mini-sun in his hand.
Could have done better, probably.


ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/15/2015 05:22

The hand in front of his chest.

dami1310 (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/15/2015 03:52

You have my sword.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 03:43

@91, on which hand?

91grinds (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/15/2015 03:26

wow cool work

The fingers fascinate me

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/15/2015 03:13

@PBDC, which hand?

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/14/2015 22:47

Holy shit this is awesome, especially the plasma in his hand.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/14/2015 21:26

The hand animation seems a bit awkward to me--especially as it syncs up with his mouth movement, and doesn't really seem to be expressing anything.

Terff (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/14/2015 20:59

Lovely colors!
