Hey @jonny-clearwater,

This is one tough contest/challenge for me!

I'm not a graphic whatever, whatever oriented person lol

So... you've forced me to learn to use some software... which is not a bad thing 😀 But, it's tough creating an animation when you only have ONE frame to work with! Creativity?? Where art thou?! (see what I did there? lol)

Anyway, here's my first attempt at something for this contest... I just created a rudimentary GIF animation, of which I'm kind of proud.

Time to think of more "stuff" - cheers,

This sounds awesome, I'm definitely gonna participate, but I have a questions? do we have to create a post with the sprite sheet, and then leave it in the comments?

·

You can make a post if you want...that's up to you
Your entry must be in the comments of my post

does it feel so happy, of course yes.
but the problem for me is one question.
the question is, how much money do I have to pay to buy it? one character only.

Cool. I think this is something I can help with.

Good vibes.

appreciate the effort...perhaps you can take a look at what it means to animate something...
here's a great place to start..

I understand ... now my work gives me embarrassment.
Thanks for sharing the link will help me learn.

·
·
·

nothing to be embarrassed about at all, you didnt know....it's great when something like this can help you learn something new.

Do you now how to make animation from individual PNG image files?

·

simple way is to use them to create a gif

i understand this is a contesto only for animation of the characters, right? not designing them or any of that

·

No.
You can animate the existing characters...or recreate them in your own style.

Any other guidelines to follow like how big the sprites should be? (or at least a minimum size?)

·

Totally up to you.
Most game engines today have excellent tools to be able to scale sprites to size needed.

Hey @jonny-clearwater,

I had an animation in mind... but I wasn't able to create what I really wanted. Here's the best shot I could give this contest, with the time I had available to me.
