Take a look at this (click on the movie to get focus, use left right and space to jump):
The dude was an animated gif, so I used each frame of the animation for the running effects.
I wanted to do a side scroller with a dude, different levels, and some villains along the way. I can do the coding but the art, well I’d rather concentrate on the coding, and my art is not exactly my strong point.
So if you can do a hero like this one - the running sequence is smooth with about 5 or 6 frames to run:
I would need running, crouching, jumping, maybe draw (as in pull out) a weapon, punch kick, etc, hurt and dead. Alot, yes I know, but I’ll put your name on the credits for graphics and this could go in your portfolio.
Also eventually villains, background etc.
Let me know if you or - if you’ve got other things, then anyone else is interested.
