2D Sprite Skins -- Walking Animation
This work was created for Hero of Allacrost and is used as the base for most of the human sprites found in the game. You may start with this sprite and draw on top of it any hair, clothing, and accessories that you like to create your own unique sprites. This sprite was created to work in a 32x32 pixel tiled game where the size of an adult sprite is roughly 32x64 pixels, but should be suitable for similar environments. Four directions are provided for an adult male, adult female, and child. Note that you may only need to create three directions, and simply flip the sideways direction to provide both left and right frame sets.
The preview image illustrates how you can use these frames to animate the sprite walking. The frames are listed numerically at the top and the animations are created by putting each frame in order. The sideways directions have additional frames than are show in the animation instructions, which you may or may choose to include in your own animations, although we only use five frames for each direction in our own animations.
