Mini Ho-Oh by BronzeHalo Mini Ho-Oh by BronzeHalo
...

The icons are kinda driving me crazy, so time for some other pixel practice.
About a dozen really old Pokémon sketches are sitting around, and I decided to work on a Ho-Oh.
This is like the 3rd or 4th Ho-Oh I've sketched... but this chappie is the first to ever be finished.

Meh, I'm not too happy with it though. Really, really don't like that awkward choppy tail. *slaps self*
Oh well. Not gonna redraw it all now. :shrug:

Some WIPs: [link] / [link] / [link] / [link]
(and some more Poképoop is here if you like.)

Animation by me. Photoshop CS3, 10 frames, 31 colours.
Ho-Oh and Pokémon belong to Nintendo.
I don't mind this being used/shared/displayed elsewhere, without permission... but PLEASE give credit! Thanks...

Looks very realistic. Nice animation. You really captured the movement of a big bird flying. I can't even tell it loops.

That's an awesome sprite! I don't see how it's "mini" though. It'd be pretty big in an actual game.

yeah I agree with pahein. the head looks weird being stationary. Maybe try looking at a bird flying reference? it might help with it and maybe some birds in the future you do. ;)

I think the tail might look a little better if the head moved as well? In my experience, both the head and tail tend to dip during the downbeat-- to balance the body, and help the head stay at the same position relative to the world. Birds have some of the most amazing head stabilization processes... It's really interesting. :)

Either way, the shading looks fanTAStic. I really love the shading for the red and white bits, in particular.

Holy... science... this is the greatest sprite and animation of all time...

If somebody made a hack of some SNES game with this in it my head would explode. A lot.
