The effort is there but sometimes you need to simplify things to really make something have an affect. Imagine something random happening, but no one expects it, therefore the funny factor goes up, or you could have more detail in each action it will appear more action packed. For example sometimes in dragon all z there is 20 minutes of talk until 1 single attack, yes it’s rediculous but the monentum up to that moment boils your blood. I know animation is hard but if you keep at it, ideas will come! Not bad just looks beginner.
Also giving credit to Sega and sprites resource is a nice idea but it’s really not necessary, you can just pop it in at the end with some text if you really want. Just saying.
I love sonic and can’t wait to see how you progress, ima follow you now.
