Flaming Skull
Made using the program Pyxel Edit, which is my favorite program to make pixel art in. Hands down. 
pyxeledit.com/features.php

I don't work for them, but I will always say that it is 100% worth the money, every time. It's 9 dollars to get the version that lets you animate.  The free version gives you a good idea what to expect it just doesn't let you animate.

So I whipped this up tonight between life chores.

ImperialStarletStock Gestures by slyshand
ImperialStarletStock Gestures
Another round of gesture drawing.  The stock used for reference is :iconimperialstarletstock: she has some very dynamic poses and a large back catalogue of amazing gestures. It is the second time I've used her stock to do gestures but its been well over a year and like other stock providers I went back for more.  You should absolutely check out what she has to offer, as I believe it will help you out on your art adventures.

I'm still making a wide array of hats for Battle Sloths www.youtube.com/watch?v=whZG16… the game that I worked on that came out on humble bundle, and will be released on steam this year hopefully :)

I Tweet when we are streaming, and I happily take hat ideas.

Hope everyone's personal projects are going well! I'll try to keep up this trend of posting once a month or more!

Battle Sloths hat: Steaming ramen bowl
Hi everyone :)

In the interest of making some of my busier life more public, I have been making hats for Battle Sloths, the game I worked on that was released on humble bundle in early march! We hope to be able to sell the game at some point, so to get the word out about the game, and I've been making hats.  The last two weeks we haven't been live, but we try to stream live on Wednesdays.

If you want to see more of what you see up there, I will tweet out when we are doing it, and what twitch channel we're doing it from here
twitter.com/slys

Check out the trailer
www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7Qti5…

My role as you may have imagined, is animator, and hat creator.  I made a few weapons as well, and all of their effects ^__^

When its up for sale, I will let you all know, it should be later this year!

MODOK WINS by slyshand
MODOK WINS
I've been rather absent, life is a constant never ending adventure.  I haven't made anything super noteworthy in the last year or so...  UNTIL NOW I have made a game for March Modok Madness, marchmodokmadness.blogspot.com…

DOWNLOAD HERE - ITS FREE - PC ONLY atm
slyshand.itch.io/modok-wins

You can find more information and some of the in game assets here.  It was a collaborative effort with my brother, I did the enemies gameplay and animations.  He did the art for the start and end screen and provided the inspiration for the design of the game.

I hope everyone's projects are going well and everyone's improving.

I'm going to make a series on the actual process of animating, which I have already started here

I'm looking for specific questions to answer in the coming weeks months that need visual clarification.

ANY question you have about animation I am willing to answer, research and / or explore.

I have a few subjects in my head to go over...

Planning - Checked off*
Breaking down an animated scene
Gesture drawing / silhouette
Facial animation

While I'm not an expert in any one of these things, I feel like creating something that can be used for reference or a starting point will help anyone who may want to.  I've been less than social over the last year or two, and I hope to fix that ^__^

Ask questions, focus my brain and I will contribute.
  • Listening to: Typing
  • Reading: A Dance of Dragons
  • Watching: My hands
  • Playing: Borderlands 2
  • Eating: Too much and Too little
  • Drinking: only a little

Glad I stumbled upon your animations. It really drives me to know you don't need finished, detailed animations to show a good flow of actions. Thank you for doing what you're doing man! :)
