as SpamMaster said you can't see the transparency in gif. so I decide to show this.
I smoothen it a little bit so no dramatic change.

your welcome to comment more. anyway I'm gonna do the root now.

There is no transparency in that image either...

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

the roots looks so wrong. I thinking of redoing the root. Do you know how to make it look better.

I'll do anti aliasing after I'm done with everything. It tends to confuse me.
I'll keep practicing on anti aliasing since it's not noticeable.

Anyone else bothered by the parts which remain absolutely static in the centre?

thanks rotonen, skipy.

here's an update

I'm gonna do the hit animation now. (I'm gonna make the cocoon shake unless someone has a better idea)
about the death animation which is better?

a. put a hole then the liquid slowly start pouring out
b. make it explode and the liquid starts splashing around

ps. I'm glad this cocoon is immovable. the idle stand will be reuse on north, south, west and east facing

Definitely a: easier and more realistic to me

Indeed, adding static content, providing it is well done, could add a lot to gameplay requiring little effort.

Instead of shaking it, why don't you make it inflate a lot and then make a big poison cloud?

lol we're having a misunderstanding. that animation is when the cocoon gets attack from the player.

my definition of hit animation is different than yours.
I differentiate it from hit animation and attack animation.

again sorry for causing a misunderstanding.

your idea is good. I'm gonna make an attack animation now.

The cloud of contents animation would more be for "creature dies", IMO.

So far looking good. You have a good grasp of how subtle things work in your favor in animation.

okay here's an update on death animation. so far its seem there's something wrong with the perspective. The hole just appear like that so maybe some skinning should solve some problem. the shading of the liquid could use some more tweaking.

your welcome to suggest.

still working on the dead animation.

after everything is done I'm gonna compile it into monster sheet.

here's the second update on death animation
Image

again suggestion are welcome.
