These are some little sprite doohickies I made at Gamer Camp. It's my first time animating with Photoshop (Photoshop has animation? Mind blown!)
Since I don't think I've introduced Hitmantis yet (since I can't come up with a decent drawing for him yet), basically, he's one of the villains I created for Project Wonchop. As his name suggests, he is an assassin who's good at his job (for the kids). And the mantis part? That stems from his artificial arms which, when forced into close combat, recoils his hands (ew) and brings force giant praying-mantis like scythes to make sure there are no witnesses left.
For this task, we had to do a character doing an idle animation, a walking animation and a death animation (I skipped a run cycle due to time restrictions, which also applies to lack of inbetweens on the death animation). I drew them at this size after taking a look at some of the Ace Attorney Investigations sprites, since they would have to fit on the iPhone. (Though I might not go with this when we go onto the main iPhone game making dooflips)
