Can't Decide on Idle Animation
« on: April 02, 2017, 05:56:57 PM »
Working on the idle animations for an upcoming game I'm working on, and I can't decide if I should use simple or more bouncy animations for one of the main characters. (Here are the animations I've made http://imgur.com/a/q2bZf )

EDIT: As suggessted by PeachClamNine, I added some more realism to the animation and made her pull her shirt back down after it rides up.

Here's the new animation: http://imgur.com/a/N8lyK (Timing may be slightly off, that's my recording software's fault. Sorry.)

Animation 1 just looks like an unfinished Animation 2. 2 is fantastic though and I really like the look of this project! Super excited to see where it goes.

Thanks! Unfortunately I probably won't be done for a few years, but if you're still here when it releases that'd be pretty neato!

Have you thought about releasing early access demos? That's what people around here usually do.

I like the second one but am unsure that's how an actual shirt would act under the circumstances. That shirt looks pretty tight so I don't think it would flutter back down like that after a bounce. it would ride up instead yeah? But that doesn't lead to a good looping animation...

Unless you wanna have her cutely pulling her shirt back down.

That's actually a really good idea! I'm not the greatest at drawing (This sprite is the product of a year's worth of slight tweaks) but I'll see if I can make that happen! EDIT: Here it is! http://imgur.com/a/N8lyK

I don't have any GIF makers handy but what about something like this? I didn't think there was enough 'bounce' before. Her hair was moving but her body has not. When you got that much fat one isn't gonna move without the other, if she is bouncing up and down like that.

Feel free to do whatever with these, it's your art not mine I was just trying to help lay it out a bit better.
