what do you think: is that idea worth bringing it into the game?

Wahaha, I love it! It's sooo funny! :D

Yet I don't think it would fit in TMW... not with that attack animation at least. It's better for a Space Jam or Johnen Vasquez game. But with a more apropriate attack animation it could be a newbie creature. Or maybe a baby pet?

About the moving animation... he seems only to be jumping up and down. His leg should strech also backward, not only down. So the feet should go in a sortof half-circular motion. Oh, and the animation could be a more fluent, if you ask me. About two frames extra.

Thanks for the laugh anyway. :P

I like this too, but I could place this into a cold damp dungeon (we do have slimes!) with a different color and tweaked animation..

I see it more as a creature you swat during your first steps outside the safe city walls... hopping in the quiet peacefull fields of carealot.

Tell me about it. :)
Remember the standing frame doesn't have to be from the direct front/back. And for all north/south frames; There doesn't have to be exact symmetry in pixels, and don't forget you have anti-aliasing.

I think a carrot field lvl would be a funny idea with this monsters. Someelse could draw a better field + carrot.
