I tried to salvage the previous version, I really did, but I just.. I just couldn't. However, that didn't stop me from fulfilling my duty! Also, I noticed you said it was a boss, so I went ahead an made a boss, like a boss!
Yes I know, it's huge ...and messy, but I can continue working on it until it's purtty enough, if you want? After that no more, period. Why you ask? Because this is a man-made torture device, sir! ITS MADDENING!! Good golly, who's bright idea was it to make monsters have the same amount of directions as a player character? You know what, scratch that, I don't even wanna know.
Man, I only ever seen a handful of games go that route, and yet it still seems excessive, even though they get paid. :3
Now if you need anything else besides monsters, I'm your man. Now if, say, sometime in the future, if you were to change the monster sprites from 4 to 2 directions (Paper Mario-esque). I'd gladly jump back on board, again! You know what, here, I'll show you in my own words, through my art:
The really sad thing is, these took less than 10 minutes to make, compared to that nightmare above, lol - I'm talking about the 3 stationary frames, by the way.
