So far we have two developers recommending you to do the animation first before trying to lock in the shading and details so you do not have to do that hard work many times because you have to change something in the shape to fit the animation.

We also have helpful people recommending GIMP for you and telling you how to do animations in it.

We should also have enough loitering people around to help you with anything related to your piece of pixel art if you'd ask for help.

I think the spineline should move a bit with the movement too. Currently the staticness pops out to me from the movement.

Yes, I think the spine should arch to the point where all four legs touch or nearly touch and then the spine should flatten back out as front and back legs separate or distance from each other.

*Gimp also has a windows version, just in case someone didn't know.

1st it seemed that the spine was made of rubber, the 2nd one seemed like it was waving....
I'll continue working on this :wink:
