Apply the same movement to the thighs, as well, and I think you're probably there.

I have put some movement into the thighs and some additional creasing in the leggings.

I think those are probably good to go. If you can submit the frames, ideally with the shadows and transparency in place, we should be able to get this committed today.

I think the WC move way too quickly. I don't think that's humanly possible, and zombies should be slower than humans. Also, had it not been said, I wouldn't be able to tell what was going on.

Don't worry, the animation will be slowed down when it is in-game. What you see here is only a preview in gif form.

We think of these things ;)

Next time, please make sure that all of the frames are correctly aligned with the base frame - these are all about 3 pixels higher in-frame than they should be. I might fix them up for you, if i'm feeling enthused, but it would be great if you could do it. I'm waiting on your response to my PM before i commit, anyway.

For future reference, by the way, you don't need to include 'anim' in the file name. just 'unit-idle-1.png' is fine.

EDIT: and no, you haven't, it still rises by at least a pixel after frame 4. That needs fixing =)

A preliminary explorer idle anim. I think it would be better if I kept the axes.

A bit jumpy. The dwarf's arms seem stumpy. Torso could move a bit too. Emphasis on A BIT.

Still, I'm impressed with the zeal of your work. You're going to be a multiple-art contributor within the month, I guarantee that.

:D Thanks!
I also noticed that the torso onthe right hand side stays still till alsmost the middle then moves drastically for a frame so I'll have to fix that, and mabe put another frame in to smooth it out a little.

Very nice, but the axes need shading/definition when they change position, and maybe the one over his eyes should be angled more towards the screen.

Lol. His chin bounces up and down as if he's muttering to himself. Almost looks whimsical.
