They’re saying the art isn’t very good. The characters are just simple shapes.
(Not trying to be mean, just honest)

It’s gonna be hard to find a programmer who wanna work with art which is that simple to create… Then they would probaly prefer to do it by themselves.

Just wondering.. why search for an AS2 instead of AS3 programmer?

Dont underestimate art thats made of "simple " shapes. What about characters like Kirby? Pretty simple right? But still really popular.

As to the question of the AS2 rather than AS3, its just what the other programmer has requested Im not sure why to be honest.

Funny thing is, Kirby was originally intended as “a dummy character that the developers used until they could define a more sophisticated image”. They just happened to end up keeping him for his cute appeal.
Your drawings don’t have that appeal.


…Anyway, the point is, like Danishdragon said: Your art is very simple. Anyone could just do it themselves in 30 seconds and spare the trouble of hiring someone to do it.
The point of being designated the “artist” in a team is be creating appealing art that would be too much work for the programmer or whoever else.

If you could do it in thirty seconds prove it please? Also going onto your profile I see no work, Id like to see some of YOUR work, if your here criticizing actually scratch that its just plain bashing, and you have no work up yourself and you turn out to have no skill at all then you’d be better off working on your art instead of wasting practice time criticizing others. Im not saying your not good you could be amazing but how can I know? Plus I came here looking for a programmer and if you didnt want to do it why just post here bashing me? Also how do you know my character isnt a dummy character? All my designs are still subject to change.

Just saying, no hard feelings towards you or anything :P

OK guys, the characters are just shapes, no shit, right?. but there supposed to be like that, if that was what he was going for they could fit into a very good game. the art doesn’t have to be detailed to shit it just has to look good and it passes good because he animated it very smoothly.

my feed back put some more depth in the animation maybe make it go down a bit in the middle, also do something with all that negative space you left. add some kind of background (just for show but in the actual sprite leave it blank (duh))

Khronosis has a point though.

Fair enough. Here’s an early sample of a game I’m working on. (Doing both the programming and art)

If you’re looking to attract people, you should be posting solid demonstrations of your ability.

I’m really, really not trying to “bash” you.
I’m trying to help you understand that someone looking at this collab offer wants to see that this is something worth teaming up for, which means demonstrating commendable proficiency in the area you’re attributing yourself to.

I don’t want to be mean, but as an animator, bouncing balls are one of the most basic things you have to know how to do.
Practice on that a little more.

Hahaha Nice one Khronosis, you sure proved it, very nice game aswell, Im a fan of those bash em up style games, tell me when the full version comes out so I can play it :) Seriously though, Ill work on my characters more now, any advice for me? Cheers man.

I amnt really an animator in my first post I said
“Im the character + one of the animators”
I only noticed now but it should be character designer not “character”, I only started animating like a week ago and am still looking for a good one to do the animations. So my animation skills are pretty noobish lol. Thanks everyone for all the advice :)

Cheers!

If you want to practice animation, start with a bouncing ball, try squashing it and streching it, what happens, ease in or out at the top, leave a few more frames for float time, decreas it, now try that for the bounce, what happens? experiment. Look for weight and personality

If you want to improve your character designs study things like dominant shapes, try out what colors say. ask first what you want to project, is he a bottom heavy stable character, or a top heavy lightweight balloon? what’s the texture of the surface? how does it move? check the posture.

Good Luck!

I won’t ask why you’ve put so much work and thought into the deformation and bouncing of soft balls Epsellis. ;p

But yea, what he said.

ahaha. every time people say he to epsellis I go “what, who’s that guy talking to” only to realize “oh yeah he’s not a girl”
