Looks good! The only problem with the anim is that his legs go in circles. First his right leg is in front, the it's behind, then it's in front again, and behind again. It looks rather strange. Lol Nice anyway.

I agree with the above comment. But it's a really easy fix, just make sure the leg in the foreground is always lighter then the leg in the background and that should fix it. The head bother me a little too. The whole 'head bobing' thing looks painful. My advice is have don't move it at all. You give the impression of movement not by moving the head up and down, but shorting the legs slightly. Also, the head is slightly looking back, while the rest of the body is pointed forward. Maybe you should try redrawing the head to have it pointed forward also. Just my two cents.

This mabye seems a bit mean. But alot of your characters suck in this topic.

Expect Oldmanclaytons are nice and AndyUK's are ok and Zezard's one is quite nice.

I liked the characters in this topic - they were all unique and had a lot of character about them (except for my Terminator, since i never invented it!). This topic is great, like the tree one a while back - i hope it keeps going for a long time!

I appreciate the compliment... But it wasn't very nice to say that a lot of them sucked.

That character is interesting, Zezard. All of these characters are unique...

Strange thing is... I don't think there are any repeats from the not-real you 2k8 thread... O_o

Some would argue.

Have you ever heard the phrase, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all"?

Hehe, well I fully understand what you mean. Yet, this is an old technique in 2d animation to spare animation time, and it isn't as disturbing (in my opinion) when you are playing the game and paying less atention to what the sprite is looking like. There are a lot of moving stuff to keep your eyes occupied with in the actual game. The head isn't final at all, it's just something I put there so it wouldn't look so weird (as it does without one), at least I'm planning to make it turn in the animation, and adding heroicly waving hair.

Hehe, that isn't really helping anyone. Shouldn't you show us one of your main characters instead?
I think it's bit hard to give constructive critic though, as these are only sprites and scetches of main characters, telling little about their "story" or underlying concept.

...because 'Greg The Overenthusiastic Potato' was such a wonderful achievement, and far less dull...?
