How To: Animate and Light Weapons

  • Hey guys!

    I've been working on animations for our upcoming game, Dragonfly Zero, and wanted to share the process I used to create the weapon firing animations.

    Wasn't sure which subforum to put this in, as it pertains heavily to art. However, it does include a good deal of technical aspects of making the art, so this subforum should work as well as any!

    The write-up ended up being pretty long, but I added in pictures and humor where I could to make it more accessible. This post should be useful for artists and non-artists alike!

  • DatapawWolf Glad you like it! I just updated it to include the original file I used, so you can compare your work or work off of that file while you go through it.

    I'll be writing similar, graphic-based blog posts in the future and actually have intentions to write one about how to fit your game to any size screen/aspect ratio coming up here within a month or so - so stay tuned!
