Hello, I go by Izerna and I have been interested in the Rom hacking scene since 2012-2013. Mostly just watching MarkyJoe in my youth and then started creating stuff since August.
While I don’t intend to create a fully fledged hack for public release I do enjoy creating or editing sprites, icons, and the occasional splice/recolor. Unfortunately, with the pandemic and college work, my motivation has plummeted through the ground. It doesn’t help that I have issues understanding how to insert animations properly into FE Builder. Only a few friends and family have seen some of my work. None of them are particularly interested in Fire Emblem so it’s hard to find any encouragement.
I don’t have much to show, but I have a few things to present.
I made this by using Eirika as the base. I added the legs of a rogue and the shield of a hero. The rest was made by me with some creative liberties. I have a basic attack animation but it’s not finish. Here is what I have so far:
Both the dance animation and the dodge animations are finish I just need to compile them into one gif.
I wanted to incorporate Naga but with the way GBA animation work I realized that it would look way too tacky. Now Deirdre has a banana growing on her head.
Maybe someday I’ll finish these but not now. Believe me, I don’t want Edelgard to be rotting inside my computer unfinished.
If you intend to use/edit any of this(Don’t know why) please credit me. I worked really hard on it and I would be devastated if someone was praised for something I spent hours and days on ;-;.
Err, is Ninian here supposed to be a still? Your words imply there’s a dance animation; maybe you forgot the gif?
In any case, that’s a cool Edelgard! Pretty smooth, well animated, and such. My one critique; she should pause for a moment when ‘winding up’ for the lunge-bash forward. Like this Fighter 2.0 animation.
This is called ‘anticiaption’ and it makes the attack ‘hit harder’ if theres’a pause before a big lunge forward.
Compare with and without anticipation.
Hope this helps!
P.S. it turns out your return frames aren’t all finished yet, but I tried retiming the gif to give an idea of what the timings might look like.
What I meant about Ninian is that I have every frame finished it’s just that it’s not ready in gif form. If I showed it to you now you would eventually see Ninian twirl a few times with her hair unchanged. I’ll make a short gif as soon as I can.
I added shade to her boots which I’m not sure is noticeable. I’ll try to add color to Aymr.
