[GIT] Squirrel

Post by Fother »

:lol: Despite working on a few other things, I've also been working on a squirrel sprite I was playing around with on the Log Monster Redo thread.

There's no attack or up down scurry movements yet, that's what's left to do.

I have to add in a basic attack animation (yes another biting monster, and similar to the fluffy in movement, but ambient for the more wooded areas :) ).

After adding in the incomplete sprite sheet example, I just realized I need to address the shadow another way if I'm going to make this dyeable :o !

there are 2 options:
  • Use a different dye channel for the sprite, like using the green channel instead of the grey
  • Use a colour like RGB(0,0,1) for the shadow

Don't we only use shadows for flying things?

It's jumping, isn't that almost the same as flying?

Jumping is a border case ;)

We need to make a decision about shadow and fix existing sprites. But for now, use something just off gray for this shadow.
