Purple ghost included? Maybe as the Big Boo replacement, I guess.

Yup, he's the Big Boo equivalent. There's a long history behind him, an epic tale of conquest and intrigue, but I can't condense it into less than four paragraphs so for now I'mma just leave it at SUDDENLY GIF

Freaking rope physics, how do they work?
Yeah, not quite finished but... yeah. It felt wrong to give Sheath a single frame when she's standing still so I guess I'm doing idle animations now.

...Does she look like she's swinging her hips around in circles like a hula hoop or is that just me? She's supposed to be just rocking back and forth... Actually, it's probably the angle when she's leaning back, it looks like she's turning slightly... it'd probably work better overall if the animation was more subtle and subdued...

I've been watching your progress on this, and I've got to say, I'm very impressed by your work!!

What you have, looks fine! Just imagine animating heavy(ier) hair than you normally would, and you're good on that! To me, it does looks like she's rocking. Hmm... Perhaps smooth out the back swing with an extra frame? It's a bit jerky looking, but I'm too tired right now, to see why. >.>

It might be nice to remove those stray black pixels near the tip of her braid, they really stand out (at least to me). Also I'm not sure about her right cheek jutting out like that near the end of the loop. (Which doesn't mean it's a bad animation at all.)

The cheek is actually supposed to be rounder, it's just jutting in when she leans in. The stray black pixels are rotation artifacts, I'm going to touch up the details once the general silhouettes are finalized.

Yeah, an extra frame would probably help. The ponytail thing (seriously, what do I call that) was originally angled lower but it looked, erm... inappropriate. It would probably help if it had more visible weight to it, less of a wave/wobble and closer to the ground.

I also realized what makes it look like she's twisting when she leans back, it's the collar. And the reason the shorts look like they're rotating is because the pant legs don't arc with the perspective for those three frames.

Not done with touching up that Sheath animation yet so here's a couple other WIP things in the meantime.

Whipped up a quick thing to test backgrounds in Moonpepper

Image
Nowhere near fancy enough yet, still needs a ton more detail and stuff, but it'll do for now.

And something I just started working on for fun/practice/whatever:
Image

I really should've mapped out the seams and shading so they'd fit the curvature better, I was trying make the bricks vary a tiny bit in size/shape but it just ended up looking lopsided and misshapen :|

I keep coming back to that Sheath animation and tweaking it a bit each time but I really need to just sit down and finish it in one sitting.

I was inspired by Konjak to start practicing subpixel animation. Tricky stuff.

Ah. You are familiar with Konjak's work? Very nice. I rather enjoyed seeing his animation work in Shantae back in the day. I'm glad it did eventually see a release!

As for subpixel, it's easy! The trick is, you generally want to focus on painting down the raw forms, and then the shadows, before you focus on moving any of the linework. It's a little confusing to look at, while working on each frame. But you get used to it.

(I'd normally post an example, but many of my works are adult in nature.)
My best SFW example, is probably this enemy sprite from a Wonderboy inspired game:

So here's the new parallax backgrounds shown in the Moonpepper thread in all their unfinished glory:
ImageImageImage
Also a convenient link to my over-ambitious attempt at musicking for those not interested in downloading the entire source to listen to it. As mentioned in the description there, this isn't the current version; the most recent version is a massive collection of transcribed melody scraps that I'm trying to piece together into something that flows coherently.

And, uh, I figured it was the perfect time to publish this given today's level theme in A2ombieMT.

Edit: Oh, and I didn't know that Konjak worked on the Shantae games, that is pretty dang awesome!

I was wondering where the sprites from the moonpepper thread came from and I just just just noticed this thread somehow.

Let me say: holy moley hell woah gosh!

Also, this is old news but considering that sheath is supposed to be fairly 1.hyperactive and 2. move in a somewhat unusual, almost slithery way, it's okay if she seems to be rotation her hips.

So I have a plane to catch early tomorrow morning and I thought now would be the bestest time to try animating Catnip. Honestly, what is it with me and these horribly-timed moments of productivity?

Conveying that excitable gung-ho attitude is definitely a goal so I've been going for pretty loose/flowy and exaggerated animations (and looking back, I should've made that idle animation faster, not more "slow and subdued"), though I imagined them as more silly and cartoonish than odd -- the airplane arms/ninja dash running, for example.

I've even considered giving her Kood's/Peach's hover in the engine just so I can animate her flapping her arms, but I'm trying not to have too much overlap among the different characters and powerups and I kinda want to give the catllama the Yoshi's Island flutter to help balance him out and differentiate him from the goat... I suppose that's a discussion for the other thread.

But yeah, slithery. I'll definitely keep that in mind! :D

Apologies for the double-post, but there's something I'd like to clarify real quick. I don't like thinking of this thread as just "my space, my work, etc". As I mentioned over in Unaniem's thread, if folks want to discuss stuff and share their own stuff here or link back to their own threads, go ahead!

Also, just because I'm making all these sprites and backgrounds for Moonpepper doesn't mean they're limited to just that project. In general, feel free to use or modify any of my works I've posted/linked to directly both here and over in the Moonpepper thread.

I can even provide source materials depending on the circumstances -- with images and animations I can put up the GraphicsGale and Photoshop files. Anything I do in Famitracker I can share the FTM files. Not sure about the source for music I do in Reason because I use a number of proprietary patches and rack extensions (and from what I understand it's not the most popular DAW), but I can export midis or provide the stems as audio.

I just uploaded a bunch of images and source to the Moonpepper Google Drive folder, between those and the sheets in this thread it should cover just about everything on the art side. The Soundcloud page for the Shakespeare remix has a download link for the FTM.

I'm turning 21 on August 1st. That's also the day Guardians of the Galaxy comes out in theaters, season 2 of Gravity Falls premieres, all the dairy in my fridge needed to be sold by... and the day I fly out with my family to Seattle to begin the trip that I've been scheduling my entire summer around. As such, it's also my deadline for all my homework. And when I get back from the trip I'll have three days at home before I begin moving into my dorm at UT Dallas (Sunday, August 17th), so this Friday is also effectively my deadline for stuff around the house, personal matters with friends and other local commitments.

So yeah, long story short, I'll be gone for a while yet again. Here's some more unfinished GIFs.

ImageImageImage

I've already added the source files for these to the Google Drive folder, I'll update the Moonpepper Github repo in a bit.

This kind of amuses me because Sheath is probably the most 'stiff' of the ASMBXT characters, as a result of replacing Link. Not that anything can really be done about that, but still...!


Rocky please continue your awesome things okay thanks <3 <3 <3

I haven't actually been doing that much pixel work lately, mostly coding and music (which I'm not quite ready to share yet because [REASONS]).

I did do this after I got back from the trip and posted it to Tumblr, meant to repost it here but never got around to it because [MORE REASONS].

They can be Demo cosplay or Calleoca transformations, whatever works (unless Calleoca has a different eye color in which case idk she's wearing a colored contact or something)

Moonpepper thread update coming soonish.

These are fantastic! I especially love he purple cloaky guy and the larger sprites. Very nicely colored and detailed, but stylized and fun.
