Animating is hard…

I’d never really done any sprite animations before, so this took me a really long time. Walk cycles are hard…

But yay, I’ve got animations for running, jumping, sliding, blocking, punching, kicking, and shooting. All thanks to the awesome Pickle editor. Because I could see the animations looping over and over again while I edited them, I could use trial and error and ended up coming up with some pretty nice stuff. You’d never guess by just looking at a still frame.

Maybe I should start writing some actual code about now? 😛

    This was also my first time using the Pickle editor, much better than fooling around in GIMP. The only things I found missing were select-and-move and rotate, so I had to do those pixel-by-pixel.

    Thanks for sharing this! I’ve been looking for an animation editor like this for a while.
