@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:29 AM) Sick nasty.
@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:29 AM) No More Heroes 3 is a thing.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on that
@  acceptance : (11 June 2018 - 03:35 PM) Although in terms of remakes I would have preferred an Abyss PS4 version. Beggars can't be choosers and all that, though.

Not bad, mind if I take a crack at fixing up one of the slashing frames later just to help show what I think I mentioned earlier (with it not being shaded well)?

Also, on the animation, perhaps hold the pose after he's done slashing for a few frames longer just to signify that that's when his attack ends (and in an FE game, that's when he'd sit there waiting for HP to deplete, haha). It's a little hard to tell at first that he's quickly unsheathing his sword and swinging it, only to sheath it again right after and step back. XP

Hey... It has been awhile since my school has been busy but I still worked on it slowly. Finished the normal and critical magic sword animation. Still needed to be worked but I think it will be edited on the later. Oh if you notice there is no return animation for the magic sword animation, well let us say that my time is pretty limited so I think I will make it next time if I have the time.

And I renewed the GIF for the normal hit.

Dodge, magic, magic critical? That's what it looks like.

Sword slash shading could use some work (reference existing sword slashes is my suggestion!) but otherwise it looks great. There's some really solid animation there.

I can also tell you centered it based off of his left foot (our POV) when animating as it hardly moves but I suppose that isn't a huge problem in itself. Just feels a little awkward for some reason haha

The attack animation a couple posts above also looks solid but the same issue with the sword slashing is there; it's a bit pillow-shaded, sword slashes in Fire Emblem (and in general to some extent) really only use one main color with only like, a thin edge of another color usually. I'm not great at it myself but it could really use some work--right now you're just creating this sort of "layering" of the colors used to "shade" it and it looks weird and isn't proper (especially if you actually think about how in real life you might shade a slashing object).

As for the lineart, the eyes look a little TOO anime-ish, but otherwise it's just lineart so I can't say too much lol (I'm also not great at portraits... or sprites in general haha)

Its pretty good. But I think I think it would look smoother if you cut out some motion blur frames and replaced them with frames with the sword slowly being sheathed/unsheathed but thats just me. Also when he lifts his head up I think he should still have eyes.

good job though you should keep animating

@Fire Blazer: To the animation: I think the slashing frame... I think it is fine for me on my perspective.

Portrait: Yeah.... totally!

@GhastStation: He still have the eyes.

actually blazer is right in the slashing frames. you should at least try. Also, he doesn't have eyes and his head looks like a thumb when he lifts it. I think the neck has to be defined/ trimmed a bit more? Lastly im noticing the unnecessary first sword blur. And to be honest blurs are only necessary if the char is moving really fast. This is a a slow animation so imo it'd look better if you only kept the sheathing frame at the end.

edit: more lastly, his legs/ his robe thing keeps switching places towards the later part of the animation.He's not moving his legs enough for the robe to switch like that. its like fidgity. these are easy tweaks that your capable of

You want me to show you what I mean? Would that help? Or are you not interested? If you're not interested, that's up to you and I won't bother--it's not my place to force critique on you and I won't think any less of you for it, haha. But if you want me to, I could try to show you a little better what I mean about the slashing frames and why it's not shaded properly like it should be for Fire Emblem. ohmy.gif

GhastStation: It ain't the final product yet GhastStation. The animation will be more faster on the end so this one is just to show the example. I only slowed it down so you could notice the dodge animation and yeah it is kinda awkward to see his clothpiece moving without the legs coming out.


Fire Blazer: Show the example then Blazer... smile.gif

I see I see. Well did you notice that you're missing you're palette on the top right corner? you won't be able to put the anim in the game without it :X

Oh the palettes... that won't be necessary since I can insert it without allocating and arranging the palettes at the top right.

I don't know how it does it but it comes naturally... laugh.gif


Note: I won't be posting in this topic for a while since all of the sprites I made was deleted by my foolish and ignorant little sister.

Yes I know... but I can only move forward on my Ebilen class while the others well, are gone to drown. Sadly some of them have animations I've been working on slowly.

Note: Some of my works are not uploaded.

Extra Note: Since all of my works are deleted... Well, I think this may be a great chance to improve and create a much better one than the other sprites I made before. Look forward and I may upload a new one once I am graduated from this school year since it is more busy on final exams and not to mention our Graduations song practice will make March a more busy one and the one I am particularly nervous is the signing of our clearance... Ooohh no! Our CAT ( Citizenship Advancement Training ) is also bugging us which piles more work combined with the other subjects. Just look forward and sorry for not being active for a while.

Sorry to hear that... back-ups man, they're great haha. Try Dropbox or a Flash Drive to start. Such a good investment. I think I was saved because I kept a patch of the old TLP in my Dropbox so when my harddrive got wiped, I did lose everything else (and it was freaking awful) but I at least had that haha.

But yeah, good luck on the futuer animations, seems like you're trying to make the best of the situation...
