can you make a tut. on how to make an animation with the pixi art? because i was wondering that when you have all those details do you erase it all and start over but in a different position? so when you put it in an animation it will look like its moving.
I made an animation tutorial for GIMP on my website ^^ [link]
There's also some further information showing how I animated my Elven Archer, but it's probably easier to read that after the other one ^^ [link]
Sometimes I might have to erase and redraw parts, but usually I can manage with simply moving small areas around ^^ And generally I will draw those areas on separate layers, so that way they don't interfere with the pieces underneath as much. Of course, it all depends on what you're animating too - bouncing up and down can be as simple as moving the top half of the doll down and back up again. Twirling around in a circle though would mean drawing each view separately, so it would take a lot longer.
