Ugh I've been working on this the last three days. I just HAD to pick a character so.... asymmetrical... haha.
For my second animation ever, I gotta say, I'm pretty proud about how it turned out! I wanted to do more clipping layers on the lineart and I wanted to clean it up so it could be transparent... Buuuuut I'm not used to working on a project this long, aaaaand I was getting tired working on nothing but this for the last three days, aaaaand I got commissions to do aaaaand blah blah blah excuses.
Anyway I've never actually played Kid Icarus before. I'd love to some day... maybe next time it goes on sale in the 3ds marketplace! I love Lady Palutena. Her personality in SSB4 really stands out. I'm terrible at fighting with her, but she's a cool character. Spent hours getting the hidden dialogue with her and Pit when I got SSB4.
One other thing; I'm not sure how Lady Palutena can move like she can in the gif. With real physics she'd lean back and since nothing is holding the staff she'd just fall on her butt... Howeverrrr we'll say for the purposes of this gif she can defy the laws of physics because she's a goddess
