It really is good, and I can see that you're quite an effective animator, I hope that if you see this you'll be willing to take on a side assignment as well. xD
I'm late to the party but
your sprite animating style is great, better than the SMBZ everyone compares every sprite animation to, ever, since it's inception.
You have a good sense of timing, and you do a great job of capturing sonic's personality and movements.
Don't let anyone tell you you're copying smbz, just keep doing your own thing. What do people really expect from sprites? they're all made the same way, so of course the animation is going to look similar, it's the IDEAS, that separate the sprite animators.
Good work man. One day you should translate your spriting skills into drawing frame by frame animation, I think you could pull it off.
i like this animation 5/5
WOOT!! been a while watching a sonic trubute.
that was a good video, and aside from my biased views (name...) i think this was really good, i see u used the sonic battle sprites, good choice.
u gotta credit the songs u used, i want to know whats the name of the 1st song that u used before the vid,
a suggestion i would make for this is try to use the slo-mo technique for some scenes, and to use the after images of sonic when he is running really fast, though those 2 are really hard and maybe time-wasting, it really adds and captures the action that is happening really fast.
and if ur gonna do some super techniques, if possible and if there is space, try adding some dialogue to, it really makes it so much better.
i look forward to seeing the full version of this.
