For Liberated Pixel Cup.
Here are three coins (Gold, Silver, Copper). They contain simple animations to make them stand out to the player:
- Floating/bobbing over the ground
- Shadow size changes slightly
- Shiny stripe flashes over the coin as it faces the viewer
Each frame is 32x32, 8 frames of animation per coin. The floor-center of the coin is at 16,28 (centered, 4 pixels from the bottom; in case you want to draw the coin at arbitrary locations instead of just inside a grid square).
Process: I first created the coin in Blender with a simple spinning animation and toon shading (see attached Blend file). Then I used GIMP to recolor the coins using 4 color ramps. In GIMP I also added the animated shadows, the bouncing positions, and the flash/stripe.
I also included the GIMP xcf files. It should be easy to create more item pickups in this style that reuse the same shadow animation.
