His legs are too long, the socks are supposed to start right after his belly and move slightly away in the second frame. (not just up and down.) His foot is supposed to touch the edge of his muzzle.

Also, the original sprite seems to have bigger pupils.

Why is only Sonic's foot [and a tiny bit of his leg] moving, and not the whole leg like in the original? The HD one just looks weird when it's moving like that o.o

Hmm.

-The left arm is too visible in both frames. This is partly due to the shoes being too far away from his head and body.
-The spines should start and finish in the same places for both frames. They seem to go down in the second frame.
-The tongue shouldn't move from its place.
-The right ear should change shape in the second frame.
-The whole right leg should be moving, instead of just part of it.

I'm slidiiin'!!!

Is it me or does the second shoe look like it needs some bright red on the left edge? I know its not there in the sprite but with the quality of the other details it makes it look a bit wafer like....... a Foot-wafer if you will!

While reworking on Sonic's sliding animation, I've been updating Eggman's stand so:

HURRAAY! Thank you! :)

I don't know how, but the eyes seem very slightly... off - even though they are perfectly in line; it might just be because of the highlight on the nose is sort've blending in to his face

Uh I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean! :(
Maybe a smaller highlight would be any better?

Just a quick reply here, but in the falling animation, when his mouth opens you have an extra shadow appearing on the right. I can see how this has been interpreted from the original; however, I believe that the added pixels in the original here are actually used as pseudo anti-aliasing for the black lines on his mouth, a technique that's also used on the bottom-left-hand side of his mouth for that same purpose. It appears to me that the lack of space on the right means that the two added brown pixels join with the existing brown pixels that define the edge of Sonic's muzzle, resulting in the larger brown area you've interpreted as this extra shadow on the right.

Aside from that I see only one other problem - shouldn't we at least be able to see a tiny bit of Sonic's other leg in the second frame? His back foot doesn't appear to be connected to his body at all. At the resolution the original sprite is at, I'm guessing that what little should be seen would have been totally obscured by his other leg as it would have been impossible to draw without making too much of it visible, but the higher resolution sprite should allow for a small detail such as this to be filled in.

Other than those minor niggles, it's looking awesome. = ) Keep up the good work!

OH NOES THERE IS A WRONG PIXEL
LET'S REDO ALL THE ART FROM SCRATCH

This reply was totally necessary.

;)

I thought the whole point of these threads was for critique? It's a valid complaint.


There's critique and then there's anally-retentive, and yes 'anally-retentive' IS hyphenated.

Does his arm do that in the original sprite? Sonic's right arm moves a LOT farther than his hand does.
