    It's got a low budget mario look to it. Looks like you vectored a bunch of simple shapes to make a scene. The background, foreground overlay you've got covering it is nice. The scene its self leaves something to be desired.

    That texture is mucho overpowering grenn, is it just the compression?

    and yes to a biplane, or better yet a nutty quad-plane (more wings are always better), and a cloud with evil undertones, because nobody ever suspects the cloud.

    Yeah, I've ditched the dark background now... kept some of the texture but it's on a white bg.

    A plane of some kind was already on my list -- I love the idea of an evil cloud, that's going on too!

    Drop the texture back a little. Or find something a little more natural looking.

    Okay, so this animation has SERIOUS issues. I'm trying to catalog them and get a grip on what needs to be done on the whole before I start touching up individual frames. There are numerous issues with pixelation, coloring, and general put-togetherness. What I'm looking for are critiques on fluidity - I know the orientation of the feet will probably jump out at most people as the most obvious problem - rest assured they'll be fixed, but not until I have the animation smoothed out.

    Here's what I've picked up on so far:
    Gap between 3/4 too great
    Gap between 4/5 too small
    Gap between 5/6 too small
    Gap between 6/7 too great
    Gap between 8/9 too great

    Delzhand, I've noticed this in your animations so far, but have always been too far away from your posts to really say much. But your run animation doesn't account for the fact that a person's head and torso go up and down with the movements of their legs. That waist should be rising and falling, along with the head.

    Here's an example of what I mean: Look at the "run" section. His head goes up and down.

    Well, in the last animation I did, I only had a 1 pixel shift from frame to frame because I was learning from SNES/NES era sprites while creating them at a much higher res. There is more movement in the head/torso (which is followed with a slight delay by bounce in the arms/gun) of this one. But I omitted the upper body from the animation because I haven't animated the torso and the arms are out of whack. That's why I was hesitant to post this:

    RunAnimationB.gif

    I've approximated the bounce as best I could from the frame numbers, but I wanted to get the feet right so I could better match it with the step/pass frames.

    Your guy seems caught between walk and run, He doesn't want to straiten his legs or bend his knees.
    Spoiled for H scroll:
    runcycle.jpg

    The pencil is a walk, Your guy seems to have no weight, he isn't pushing off from the ground or falling into his step any. Hes basically walking the way you would mime walking with two fingers in the air, and you want him to hit the ground and spring off.

    Hope that helps.

    Here's a print I'll be selling on July 1 at a cute little exhibition! 3 x prints for $30, 6 x prints for $50! About 8 or 9 artists.

    (yes it's one of my paintings cropped and inverted and desaturated -- technical requirements for the paper things were being printed on and a fucked deadline. I still like it though.)

    robits someday when i'm not poor, i am going to commission you to paint me cute little things to hang on my walls in my room.

    very few things hang on those walls

    actually right now i have a minus the bear poster print which is incredible, a darwynn cooke original comic page inked and signed and everything that i gave humble for chrimmus, and then hopefully i'll get around to hanging up the ferrets iruka painted me. they used to sit on a little shelf over my ferret's cages and they'd always try to lick the paint.
    they were so silly.

    I really studied those sequences Iruka gave me, along with a few other materials I found. I realized that my problem was that I was trying to extrapolate an entire animation from the placement of the thighs. So I scrapped everything I had and decided to start with just a floating hip structure.

    Fake edit: Is spoilering for h-scroll breakage still a thing? I know it destroyed the forum window in the old forum versions, but it doesn't anymore.

    Looks way more like running. Its skipping between 4 and 5 because of how far back the foots landing on the ground. You need an inbetween.
