He will be the one programming and i thought i could do the art and stuff. When i first started on my charchter i got pleasently suprised then i tealised i had to make him walk. Im getting of the trail here... The point is it would be lovely if you could skype or just even give me some pixel art tips like what programs you use and all that, btw i love your art.
"King of fancy pixel art" oh gosh thank you ahaha
I use photoshop!
I don’t really have any walk cycle tips, at least none that I can think of at the moment.
Well I have one I suppose. When you walk youre whole body moves. So animating JUST the legs moving will have your sprite looking stiff as heck! Move the head, the arms, everything you can!
But for more in depth stuff Here are some GREAT tutorials that have helped me a lot in understanding movement with pixels
Unseven’s run cycle tutorial
Manning Krull’s walk cycle tutorial
and this piece on Sub-pixel animation its kind of an advanced technique, even I don’t understand it completely. When it’s done right though, Metal Slug, it’s beautiful.
If you do wanna talk to me more 1 on 1, im supajackle on skype. Just be warned that I am not very talkative!
