Sprite Animation Weekly #4 - Dust Off
Monday monday monday. Alright, last week was deceptively challenging, so this week will definitely be a relaxing and easy theme. I'll probably do something based squarely on animation and effects every once in awhile.
Week 4 - Dust Off
The challenge this week is going to focus on animating. It's the first special effects challenge, and the theme for this one is dust/dirt. Create sprites of dust and dirt being blown around, kicked up, whatever. You can be as creative as you want with what is going on, as long as it fits the theme of dust/dirt effects. Just remember, you're only making a sprite of dust itself, NOT a character kicking up dirt. The only thing in the sprite should be the dirt. Be it as complicated or easy as you want, this is one that can be finished in a few minutes.

Sure I'll bite. Is there any online references we could take a look at?

I'm going to try and do at least 1 each day, with a different use of dust each time.
Here's the first, only took 10 minutes or so.

nice activities, I'm lurking in these topics and maybe one day I make an entry too. I have no experiences, so I was waiting for an easy and motivating round
I have not much time this week, but we'll see
a few minutes definitely won't be enough for me.
Sinix, your dust is wonderful as your other anims in these topics

hrm - sinix, the reason it doesn't look like it's sliding is because it doesn't look like it's friction - no dust in the front. If there's resistance there'll be dust kicked up in the front as well.
attached below, my first try. I'll probably do another as well. I also vote that this become a weekly... totally.

I confess to having tried a couple of other dust effects - but I'm still getting the hang of this, really, and the others looked like shite.

Whew, great sprite guys! Must say I was eyeing both of your sprites when I was doing this, trying to pick up a thing or two. I couldn't match the speed in any of yours; mine's kinda more of a dust cloud lol. Fun stuff though, gonna have to do another!
edit: looking at them on the same page now I can reaaally see a difference lol; gotta work on getting more of a three dimensional look to my sprites.
