Well it has been months since I've worked in my usual animated pixel style, so I figured I'd work my way back into the groove by making an animated pixel thing of Tendon, one of my old, underused characters. His design has changed a bit since the last picture he's been in,
since the biker aspect didn't seem to fit in too well with the Tengu aspect. So, I figured I'd go with a more traditional Japanese look.
I'm relatively pleased with the way this turned out, but some things could use some work. I originally wanted his sword to tilt a bit as well, but it ended up looking too wiggly and weird.
Oh yeah, and this is my first time doing the whole thing in Photoshop, instead of using Imageready to animate. Now I kind of understand why Adobe discontinued Imageready...
