Warrior of the Gates by zeratanus Warrior of the Gates by zeratanus
Oh man this thing was a beast. Almost a full week of working on this and my brain's about fried!

Done for the weekly challenge at Pixel Joint: 8 colors + transparency, Angel character with a specific red, 100x100

Still not totally satisfied with it, and might update this later with improvements, but it's done enough to get entered for the challenge today so that's it for the moment!


MASSIVE thanks to everyone who helped me out on PJ's forums with this thing. It wouldn't have gotten even fractionally this good without them! If anyone is interested: The WIP thread on PJ's forums which has all of my process on this thing!

Thanks! I just got into Fire Emblem with Awakening, but I've checked out how the older games look, and now that you mention it I can see it in that kind of game :laughing: Ah that'd be fun~ But at this point I'd settle for actually finishing the updated version of this I've been sitting on for a few years ><

Nicely done. You should reall make a huge scene off of this.

Thanks! And I'd love to make a whole scene based around this, but it's been a few years and I haven't managed to complete the revised animation for this sprite, so adding more around it will probably never happen :laughing:. The link in the description does have a near completed version one of the last posts... Ugh I can't believe I haven't finished it!

:laughing: Check out the link in the description if you want to see pretty much step by step how this was made (This version actually isn't the most up to date, but I haven't actually finished the improved animation yet due to other projects and laziness!). The main ingredients are being really picky and getting lots of feedback :D

Thank you :D. If you're interested, there's a link in the description to a WIP thread on pixel joint, where I've kept working on this piece a bit more. Haven't gotten back to it in a few months, but eventually I'll have a much better version done :)

Do you need a special program to make animations like this? I can't seem to find any on Google.
Reply
:iconzeratanus:
zeratanus Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012   Digital Artist
I just do everything in Photoshop since I already have the program (CS3 and newer have animation integrated into it, CS2 and earlier have it in the program "Image Ready" that comes with Photoshop)

I haven't tried anything else really, but here are a few other programs and such that I've heard about: Grafx2, Pro Motion, Graphics Gale, and Giffy. There are a number of gif animators on the web, but I really couldn't tell you much about them.
