thanks for the pose! I'll definitely use it.. (maybe with an enlarged head? i think it is smaller on this frame) Might take some time though...

If you have something to shade, I can give it a try.

I've looked at that one before.. It's a great sprite (like basically all artwork in wesnoth :))

edit: here is another try at the walking animation (sort of boring, don't you think? ;))

Now this is much too less arm movement.

Why don't you try arm movement in front of the body instead of next to it? Don't be afraid to cover up parts of your sprite during the animation.

unless someone posts a better animation, I'll use this animation and shade it. but before I'll start with the sideways walking animation.

Can you add a bit movement to the static right (from the viewer) hand before shading?

I would suggest that you make his arms swing across his upperbody to make it better looking.

I have a very early leftwards yeti animation:

I think the animation would be nicer if the yeti turned his shoulders as well, but I think I'll leave that for another time..

Hkurn's earlier texturing is desirable. but all the hair had too similar contrast, and then it must be shaded.

The walking motion must have feet less saddle-seated. Do not fear completely redrawing entire areas.

The arms will have to have more expression.

For an idle pose, I was thinking of a squat type of sit with its knuckles on the ground, bonus points for an idle animation, such as making it scratch its head or stretch.

I'm trying something. If I post nothing within 48 hours of this post consider it bust.
EDIT: am working from a fresh start a different yeti... keep checking back here.

I claim no authorship on yeti sprites derived from hkurn's work.

This thread isn't a lost cause. Work on a Yeti monster is still underway albeit at a very slow pace with feet dragging. Hkurn would probably like to come back to this if he saw some more interest in it.

Here is a Bzipped tape archive with WIP that has been stagnating in backups for some time. It tries to cover all the ground needed such as scripting for both eA and Manaserv. The project file shows some new WIP which might or might not renew interest.

Once again, development is still underway. It got snagged because of our approach.
Jetryl once wrote that it is necessary to make many stick figures before texturing.

For this next session we will need a set of stick figures or basic outlines for each action. We won't apply texture until the animation works this time.

The stick figures should be based on Image though it is smaller than I'd like.

These are the stick figure animations to be done before detailing:
0.) Idle
1.) Walk
2.) Attack
3.) Die
