We welcome today Ned, who has no Knees!
Ned is a happy little bird who loves to explore. He was hatched in a large tree off the coast of Ecuador, and fell out as a very young chick. He's been searching for his family ever since and has had many adventures. He loves worms, cheese and baking lasagna for his new friends!
Notes on creation:
Creating Ned was lots of fun. I used a pixel art style for his asset, and animated him in spine. I'm not really 100% happy with the way he looks in motion however, as there are of course, lots of strange pixel shifting, especially in the Idle animation.
When rendered out larger you can somewhat forgive the Psuedo-Pixel Animation style, but it still would be so much better animated entirely frame by frame with pixels only. But I do love Spine!
Creating Neds assets themselves was fun, pixel art gives a nice sense of being able to make large changes with small additions and subtractions to the image, even single pixels. I definitely need to practice, but I'd love to know what you think! Let me know in the comments, or shoot me a message!
Keep an eye out on the Unity Asset store, as he'll soon be available to buy! For Cheap Cheap!
