Hi, I'm making a small game and I need the character to have an animation for when they are walking, I know how to set up animations etc. I just need help in the actual animation side of things(the frames). I am bad at pixel art/graphics and so I was wondering if anyone could use an Image of my character and make some frames(I don't mind how many) of him walking. I have tried myself and it just looks very unnatural as my art skills are rubbish.


Feel free to change the original image slightly if it looks better.

P.S if this is in the wrong section, please move it as I was unsure where to post to ask for this sort of help.

Art skills are not all that important until you're done with the coding aspect of the game. Although good sprites do provide a morale boost. Try an art forum, the majority of us are a lot better at coding than at drawing Smiley

If you just want some placeholder example graphics, you can maybe use this link:

I can't see how this particular sheet is great for placeholders, but I'm sure that there are more moral sites for placeholder graphics, than one offering sprites ripped from old games. If you're into that moral thing, of course.

Good graphics can do a lot for your motivation. Never use it for a demo. That is just wrong.

Thanks for all the replies guys, I think I'm just going to learn how to do pixel art better. I don't need placeholders as I can make bad ones myself. I'll just keep trying different frames until it looks better.

It's just hard to make a good animation with an image that's 40x40..

What should I put in my game to provide culture and diplomatic boost? Grin
