    Sprite Animation Weekly #8 - 360

    Let your eyebrows grow back, it's Monday. Another character based theme.

    Week 8 - 360
    The challenge this week is to take a character in a static pose, and have it spin around to give a full 360 degree view of the character. Size is optional, looping is required. Original characters only. This doesn't require much animation.

    Example of classic megaman:

    Have fun.

    ohhhhhhhh shnat. Well, same deal as last week. Got school, will see what I can do with this if I can. Erm, with regards to what we want: The full sprites of characters and vehicles and shit are really really fun, but the effects sprites are faster and I can do more of them. I like this balance we have going; just keep time constraints in mind. Also, repeats of previous topics with tweaks would be kinda cool... like "exploding vehicle" or "running attack" but like I said, time consuming. Also, you should talk to the mods and see if you can get this made into a Sprite.O.W.

    Challenging! I've never drawn a 360 animation before, closest thing might be a turnaround sheet and even that was only four views. Hmm.

    I'm up for character animation topics and I've really enjoyed doing the effects too, but anything goes really. I also like that you suggest we animate our OC's. Don't know if animating sprites is much different to animation in general, seeing as how I've only done like... two (and am quietly chipping away at one of the CHOW parade ones). I approach it in the same way anyway, and it's good exercise. Gives me ideas when I can't seem to think of any for myself to animate.

    I like Lake's S(A)OW suggestion too.

    nice, I probably will make something! I'm a beginner focusing on human figure, I know something about the anatomy, but if the character is moving, I'm in trouble. so I didn't even try the jump, but this rotating standing pose is perfect for me
    now I need leave Flash and paint with pixels...!

    how many pixels tall should be our figures? 60 pixels at most like in round #3?

    Spite.O.W would be amazing! just gotta keep spreading the good word to the masses, so this gains a bit more attention... perhaps I'll throw a link in my signature or something hehe.

    Cool one though, this looks like a fun one again; kinda as complex as you want it to be. I really like these exercises because they are great animation exercises, and they are pretty accessible because they are done with pixels. Will try my best to do this one!

    I dunno what is with the others... I love activities I'm a beginner, so I did only DSG, spartan camp and as you know, sprite animation entries so far... but if I will be better, I will jump into the big weeklies too

    kinda as complex as you want it to be.
    yeah, I like this the problem is I tend to be carried away, then I say to myself I don't REALLY want to make a character with a broken crow mask, a sword I can't draw even for one pic...etc.
    so I will make a simpler, child version of the arrancar haibane character I have he has fewer accessories though I have no idea about his clothes yet.
    (original character means our own, right?)

    Hmm... this is a pretty time non-intensive one, I think I can find the time this week. Hell, maybe a couple if I'm lucky... or maybe instead of a couple I should just catch up on old SAWs...

    Cool stuff Chate!
    I don't know if I'm gonna get time to do this after all - got a turn happening, just have to draw the character... but it's another busy few days for me. We'll see what happens.

    Nice one Chate Noire
    Haven't decided what kind of character I will do. Maybe something really lowres or maybe not.

    Chate Noir: I've seen many good stuff from you in various activity topics already and this one isn't an exception

    my life starts to become a little(?!) stressful, but I'll do my best.
    I need to look at nice things, I looked at something with yellowish green/yellow/turquise/pink (highest saturation, of course) in 6 megapixel... and it's work related. my next 2 weeks will be a little tough...
