Simple run animation


I’m drawing what could be the character’s animations. It’s quite interesting.
It’s the first time I do this kind of stuff…

Here is the simple run animation for Volt.

Actually the arm won’t be on the same image since I’ll have to be able to put and rotate an arm holding a weapon…

Feel free to use this sprite-sheet as a placeholder if you need one !

Right now I’m doing the “jump”… It’ll be a Contra/Sonic like jump so it should be easier 😀

    Thanks !!!

    1. Axel says:

      Hi, well you may use it only for tutorial purpose or as a placeholder (to be able to do some testing before you actually make your own sprite). It’s going to be part of my own game so I can’t let this appear in other game so far.
      Good luck 🙂

    Hi Axel
    I love you work on Volt & recently used it as part of a Uni Assignment where I had to develop a 2D game… i would love you to have a look an tell me what you think of how it turned out? if your interested?
    Oh btw your sprites were only & would only be used for the purpose of my assignment, but Thank you for helping me make it look cool by using your art/sprites… I even maintained Volt & MADtowers namers in homage to your work! so thank you again

    1. Axel says:

      Thanks a lot for your comment.
      Yeah, I’d be soo happy to see what you did for your Uni assignment ! 🙂
      You could even ask me for extra animations if needed.
      Anyway, I’m glad you liked it.

      1. Chunky says:

        Cool I’ll see what I can sort out for you Axel… 🙂
        oh n since you mention it, I would have loved an end of level boss Animation of some sort… firing projectiles into the air that are guided (in game AI) to hunt down Volt… that would have been sweet! 😉

  9. Axel says:

    Hey Chunky, got it for your boss. Check my latest post. I did a sketch for you. Tell me if it suits your needs and I’ll make the animations.
