    The first needs more bounce to his movement, and the 2nd run needs less moving quills. Looks more pre-next gen then Classic.

    First one has been adjusted already but won't be posted yet.

    Bouncing quills are being kept. He's not made of plastic.

    Well, I'm aware of that, but the rate he's moving at I don't think the bounciness of the quills should be visible yet. That's just my opinion.

    EDIT: Actually, spikes are made of reminaces of bone like fingernails, so making them bounce isn't a good idea.

    Alright, finally here. OSM sent me, so here's some sprites.

    Tails sprites based off classic Tails art. Pallet may require some tweaking, I'm not entirely happy with it.

    You have to be careful to not make the sprite look like it has the "Chibi" kind of style. Since I don't think that's what we are aiming for. :v:

    I don't think it looks very chibi, compared to some of the classic artwork Deebs hit it perfectly nail on the head in my opinion.

    It's not meant to be 'chibi', no.

    It's meant to be a merge of this: http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/5229/tails0232mb2.png and the original Tails sprites proportions.

    EDIT: I'm going to do some small tweaks on it. The tufts of fur are a bit too bright and stick out too much.
    EDITx2: Much more comfortable with this.

    Gladly.

    It's not exactly final since I copy pasta the same hands over and over, but that's what I get for animating at 4 in the morning.
     
  12. I don't think Deebs's Tails looks "chibi" at all. It looks closer to the classic Tails than anything else I've seen here.

    How exactly do you open this?

    EDIT: Can't get codebox to work.

    Gale106(

    I see. I can't open it then, because I use a mac, which is incompatible.

    I believe that's a Graphic's Gale file.

    EDIT: I know it's been said that the Sonic has been finalized, but I can't help but throw my two cents in for fun anyway. I'll be doing the same for Knuckles as well.

    For a spritual successor to the Genny games, that animation looks awfully Advance-like


    Or did you drop the whole "classic" angle?

    Sonic's quills bounced some during both running animations in Sonic 3 if I recall correctly.
     
  18. You're right, Ekoi.

    The quills never bounced in the original games. During the running animation they moved a bit but they never bounced.

    But yeah I must admit, even though it looks rather sexy it's screaming "ADVANCE" rather than "CLASSIC"
