[WIP] Bird (Yet to name it)

Post by Anonymous!!! » Thu Mar 24, 2011 8:29 am

Well as you may have heard in a topic I was making previously I have been making a bird.
Sound effects can be found here: http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... 21&t=12575

It's only a rough draft and hasn't been shaded or coloured correctly yet but I basically want some opinions.
Feel free to help me out because I'm a newbie at pixel art.

The Bird's Sprite: Note that the hurt is useless and many frames are the same, but this is the draft and the good copy wont have duplicates or hurt scenes.

Well here is what I want to do with the bird:
(Will make more graphics for these but anyone who wants to help make them is welcome.)
Drops:
*Feather- Generic
*Bird Egg - Food (probably same as snake eggs?)
(Maybe these ones but if there is no use for them no use making it, any Developers got ideas for these?)
*Claw- Generic
*Severed Beak- Generic

I have an idea for a quest for the Feathers that I'll make if the bird seems to being going good and looks like it wouldn't be a waste to make something else.
But basically the idea is Pachua makes one of those hats with feathers sticking out at the side out of 10 feathers and a snake skin.

Okay so any help, advice or criticism I would love to hear.
Thanks :)

Edit:
Notes for XML: The bird is on tiles 32x32 (just because it seemed to fit best)
And I know how to make the xml file except I suck at the positioning XD

45° view is missing, exept that the shape is funny ^^

Also, just a little question, which program did you used for creating it?

I like it as well. It does look a bit evil. Would it be difficult to make a couple of different colours?

It'd be possible to make it dyeable, and then you can change a few characters to make it any colour you want.

To do this, all dyeable parts need to have either 0 or 100% saturation.

Yeah, as I said its a rough draft, and I made it in 7 mins.
I'll work on it though...
Yeah I'm gonna make it dyable.
I'm gonna make some particle effects for it, such as feathers flying, and some elemental attacks.
I want to make a bluebird, blackbird and sparrow (red). :P

I'll work on it in my spare time.
And I used gimp.

Yeah, maybe give them elemental-typed attacks...
For example red bird gets fire etc...
Elemental magic birds! XD
