Trying to make rough animations for my newbie flash game.
Here's the idle pose, attacking, and running.

I like the look of hand-drawn frame-by-frame animation, but it's so much more work than just tweening everything. :(

I am not that great at animating so critiques and comments are very welcome.


Sorry for the obnoxious size.

*edit 1-26-11
As suggested, tried making the running animation buckle around a bit to be less static.

 I don't have any time currently to work on it, but I was sort of designing a game at the time, or at least animations for use in a character model. That is why the animations are in a (kind of) in a 2D game format, separated into "idle", "running", and "attack" animations

Thanks a bunch! I don't think I'll ever finish the game, though. I've only done rough animations for it, I don't really have the time or energy to code it or do all the art assets on my lonesome.

no tail?

I answer that question on the comment thread right below yours.

Honestly, I dislike the idea of tails on werewolves, because in most cases it makes no sense as there is no anatomical equivalent on a human.
It's purely aesthetic fluff to have a tail on a werewolf that transforms involuntarily (i.e with no control over how he looks). Plus, aesthetics is the difference between a believable monster concept and yet another wolf fursona.

I can only tolerate a certain degree of nonfunctional design choices and I spent it on having-a-body-that-almost-completely-resembles-a-real-wolf. Humans don't have tails, so werewolves don't have tails.

I don't like my werewolves growing extra bones and humans don't have enough for a tail.

I don't like the idea of tails, because then they're more like normal wolves with hands and not wolf-men. Also then he'd have to have a tail hole in his pants. People would question him.
I was trying to design it so that it wouldn't be like the video games where the clothes magically "grow back" when they return to human form(aka lazy spriting).

i think this is just awesome!

i thought you had no reason to complain!

however, if you still want feedback on something, the Run could have more up and downs and more pivits and more weight to the landing for both pairs of legs. i just had experance in this lately, so im just saying what i heard from my own animation but it appys here =)

keep it up! other than that, Awesome! =D

First I'd like to say that as an amateur animator, this is better than anything I could do :P so my comment is for you to take or ignore as you wish.

I love the style and think it is all very smooth! But looking an actual dog/wolf running you see a lot more movement in the body. For example, when the back legs are out the butt is high in the air. The werewolf's body feels very... uh... stuck I guess. As if it was suspended in air and his legs were just sorta moving under him. Of course, I imagine that a wolf/dog and a werewolf are very different and therefore could have very different ways of running.

That's all! Again, I love this, and even if you didn't change anything I would still love it! The style is great, the design as awesome, and the animation is nice an smooth! Great work!

Thanks for writing such a detailed critique on this! I was nervous about making the body move around because I was afraid I would lose the proportions as I drew more frames. Now that I have them down I can try editing them to follow your advice.
Thank you very much!:D

I have to agree with you, I like the hand-drawn animation better myself, but that's just because it flows more naturally in my opinion c:

I love the designs though, I can't wait to see more! :la:
