a kinda stupid question

Recommended Posts

i''m not used to making graphics but i''m not working for a team so i have to do the grapics myself.so my question is when i make a move let''s say a "kick" do i have to make the kick once and give it to more then one person.or re-make it for every person i give it to? the reason i ask is because if they all look diffrent does that mean i make the move with that persons look and and re-do it for for someone who looks diffrent

yes... each char in the game needs its own kicking animation...

Assuming you''re talking about a 2D game... Every character needs a separate picture for every frame of animation. So the only way to make it simple is if you want to copy and paste, and then change the colors.. Unless you do that, you''re going to have to draw a new picture for every frame.

if it''s 3d, you can easily create an object format that allows you to have the same animation system for different objects, so long as they have same number of vertices at relatively same locations. Then you rotate/move,etc the vertices in the same manner, around the same pivot points. This is assuming u have free time on ur hands to develop such a format and ur own rendering functions...

enjoy your day!

i''m not good at making 2d graphics (unless they are very small) so i used a 3d editor to create people and render the frames of my animations, and it was relatively simple to apply animations to several characters.
this may not work for your current situation, but it could qualify as an idea.
