Random NPC animation

Post by Sookill » 02 Nov 2009, 21:44

What do you think? thought of extending the flag and making it smoother but it look's ok ,although it is rough atm.

also im thinking of animating his hands, so he will move it around his forehead level, pretending to search(look) around for something.

The flag animation looks really cool. But it seems like a frame is missing - there is a considerable jump in the animation.

Well, at the selected time resolution, to me it just represents a whip of the flag in the cycle of it.

Not everything has to be moonwalk-smooth all the time.

What bothers me more is the shininess of it.

I'll admit it sucks but I only spent a few min on it. But then again that's why im a web designer/developer and not a graphic artist. :mrgreen:

Took me about 30 seconds to fix that by duplicating a few frames and put them in the right order (Ok, IMO it needs some more frames to look more natural). But anyway, I agree with Rotonen, it looks too shiny. And you also have to know that it's an old NPC which has to be replaced cause it doesn t fit the player sprites.

who said i want them to be added? and if you were to add it at-least ask me before putting it up, and yes, i did the same thing but it just doesn't look right now, it isn't natural anymore, its to smooth..

also you'd want to add alot more NPC animations because it will add more life to the game, youd want them to be able to blink from time to time, and look around and stuff.

O'h and as for the colors, its Child's play, as you can see i divided the Flag into 4 -3 sections, you just change the colors accordingly and there you go.

The "front and back" animation by spit looks even more strange. There is definitely some more work necessary to connect the last frame back to the first.

Color is something I wouldn't worry about now. This can be fixed later with a few clicks.
