If I were to make a sprite of a character for the side, front and back, it would be hard to make him consistent.
It would be easier to just have a 3D model, and make separate animations for all side views.
-It would be good if there was a 3D character animation program plugin for this.
"Add Jump", "Add Walk", "Add Hit", etc.
-Layers too if we wanted to upgrade characters like adding a cap or something.
Currently I use 'game maker' to make the 2D sprites, and Cinema 4D to make the 3D animated sprites.
