Hi all, just had a question on any tips for a beginner on animation..
Namely, i want to make a functional fighting mixed martial arts game like UFC Undisputed 2009 but realize im a noob at all this creative stuff (programming, graphics & animation)
I did the ghost shooter tutorial and am also currently messing around learning how to make sprites walk smoothly and tilesets for animation and such.
But with this fighting game i tried to take a sprite image of Anderson Silva from this picture (bottom row, in the middle)
And tried to make a concept game of just trying to program keyboard commands to animation of him throwing different strikes...ex: A is his left jab, S for right straight, Z for left leg kick, X for right leg kick, then maybe Alt + key for body blows..but is there any way to make the animation look decent without having a full tileset of him facing every direction or how could i make my own? is there any way to make it look like hes actually throwing all these strikes and if so how do i go about learning to do it?
Thanks to anyone that reads or replies!
