Hammer Bros. ML:BIS Idle by RidgeTroopa Hammer Bros. ML:BIS Idle by RidgeTroopa
[Update I: In addition to fixing how Hammer Bro.'s back arm animated, I also added the other three standard Bro. subspecies. Since they're all basically the same in terms of animation, putting them in one deviation was most efficient.]

Took a break from Koopalings and finished something small I've been wanting to remake. So for today, here's Hammer Bro. v.2! I'm fairly satisfied with the turnout... Geeze the old one is really ugly... Some of you probably remember seeing it, and I'm sorry for that.
Hopefully this makes things better.

Dear ridge, your work is awesome. Im surprised your not working for Nintendo. Anyway, im new to deviantart. I am wondering what you use to make your pixel art and how do you make it move. Thx, Drake.

RidgeTroopa.
I love your work so far.
I also love Koopas. XD
But what I most love is having other spriters to talk to.
I like your art. You seem nice.
And Yes, I'mma spriter too, but you make my stuff look half-assed. XD
Also. To actually comment on the art itself right here.
With all the different animation speeds for each of the Bros., I though they all had different Idle Poses. XD
I don't know if I'm asking you to talk to me or not.
I don't want anything. Maybe a conversation or a new friend. But I want nothing else really.

Sincerely, Kai.

Thanks. Yeah, I did that to make the animation more interesting.
I've been at this for a while now, so just keep at it and you'll be happier with your own sprites.

How long do these take to animate these sprites anyway? I already have trouble trying to draw them, but I cannot for the life of me animate them.

For me it usually takes some time to get a good looking animation, but I'm a slow spriter. Probably a few solid hours?

GraphicsGale is what most spriters use to check animation. I think it's free.
I need to try GG, but right now I use a less efficient method of spriting in Paint, copying frames into Game Maker for testing and then polishing things in GIF Movie Gear (which isn't free).

Probably. I need the Hammer Bros. at the least for a personal project, and the others wouldn't be hard to do... Either way though, it'll be a while from now before any full sheets are done...

Would you mind if I extracted the frames from this? I'm not going to make them into a sprite sheet or anything but I do need them for reference
Reply
:iconridgetroopa:
RidgeTroopa Featured By Owner May 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
When I say not to extract frames I'm more concerned about others posting a "ripped" spritesheet online. If you're only planning on using the frames as personal reference, that's fine - so long as you're not editing them, though.

Thanks! I always try to get things as smooth as possible, although admittedly I need to work at adjusting the speed of individual frames... This one is at a constant rate, which is rare in BIS.

:iconkalzai:
Kalzai Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No problem. I think you pulled this off flawlessly, including the smoothness. And true, I noticed the BIS sprites have different frame rates, Although it can be done by going into photoshop and lengthening the frames on the animation pad.
Reply
:iconridgetroopa:
RidgeTroopa Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, timing is one thing, but in some places there actually may need to be more frames. I'm not sure yet though as I've not gotten around to changing up any of my animations yet, this is just what I get from looking closer at official animations.

Kalzai Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

:iconridgetroopa:
RidgeTroopa Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd like to think I have as well, at least in terms of shape and shading; although there's always room for improvement, in this case it's probably animation.
