Animated sprite I did, flying pope john paul.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I find it impossible to follow the cloth animation. It's not smoothly animated (at least on the lower part of the robe).
Lacks a moving parallax background behind him.
The right hand and legs are not looking well when they're just slightly moving without any redrawing.
The upper part of the robe (where shoulders are) looks like it doesn't have shading, but there's this left hand under the robe which is supposed to make the robe more relief and drop a shadow.
And pope is flying to the left side of the screen, while the frontal part of his robe is leaning to the right, too? And the back of his robe is leaning to the left? Meaning he's flying downwards?
The part of the robe on the right hand is not leaning anywhere, it's just wiggling, so it makes it look like pope is flying right and left slightly. If pope was flying to the left, robe wouldn't even stay on his right hand, but would get blown off to the shoulder.

Should have used a reference!

Yeah it's a low frame rate animation, like 8 frames a second I think, so the animation isn't going to be smooth. Thanks for the advise but some of your recommendations dont take into account the stylistic economy of pixel art. But I appreciate your advise. Do you have some examples of your work I might be able to learn from?

What has he got in the hand?

spacefader responds:

Its a scepter, the popes sometimes carry them.
