Great Jaggi spritework WIP

Post by Tanzia on Fri Jul 07, 2017 4:13 pm

Update: It's 10/14/17, i'm not dead but I have been busy, tired, and everything else that comes with college. Was considering turning over sprite work to other individuals to finish it unless people were fine with waiting longer.

For quite a long time, I've been working on a sprite sheet for a potential VSO* of a Great Jaggi from the monster hunter series and I would like some feedback on what I've done so far, I believe it would help motivate me to finish it instead of just loafing around like a piece of bread like I have for the last 4 months. The black silhouette you see in the gifs/spritesheet is about the size of the default Starbound characters. What you see below is most of the "finished" animations either linked together, looped, or something else.












Sprite sheet (May have to increase window width to see it all):


You can see many additional frames in the sprite sheet for "non finished" or just work frames that aren't seen in the gifs I added above it. As you may have noticed, there seems to be a few things missing! Like... what the whole point of this mod is about. THE NOMMING. I to be honest have never drawn or done any kind of artwork vore related, so that oddly enough intimidated me from finishing what I started all while I was in this weird limbo state of motivation with life BUT that's gone now so it's time to finish this.

As of right now, there's a handful of issues to fix / goals I have:

  • Fix claw shading on many frames.
  • Create some kind of animation for the Jaggi to be doing while laying down, maybe more snoozin.
  • Have a "full belly" version of each frame, have to re-check with Sheights about how the layering works for that again.
  • Complete at least two vore-related animations, chances are having them being oral&anal.
  • Write dialog.
  • Organize sound files to accompany particular actions(?).
  • Add an attacking animation(?).
  • Organize sprite sheet, one with and one without repeating frames.
  • Probably more I'm forgetting.


My question to you all reading this, what can be improved? Any glaring errors? Something you'd like to see the Jaggi do? References for raptor-vore?

Well for me when I see preds that do anal I usually see them doing it instantly it seems. I think I would like to see the jaggi if possible seem like its new to nomming others so there for is cautious and does it slowly. I am in love with the animations otherwise

Looks pretty cute so far! Although, the arms look a bit off to me, like the angle of the "elbows" are a bit too open or the forearm seems a bit too thick and the arm a bit too thin?

I do have a plan for the Jaggi to have to push itself down over the prey a few time before it sits all the way down over it, so I think that's at least close to what you are describing. Like having to work it in instead of just having a black hole that sucks in all life back there.

Using this as a reference http://mhtri.stilltruth.com/img/monsters/Great_Jaggi.png  I believe I made the forearm a little thick/short. Did you mean that? I know the Jaggi elbow is often closed in images but I opted to show it open because, well, I just did. I don't remember why to be honest. It was difficult getting to to retain the pattern while changing angle, the shape of the arm suffered a bit during the rotations due to pixel graphics only having so many angles I could try out but I'm happy with it.  While it's technically never too late to change things like that, I don't think the arm is so far off that it would be an issue.

You make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Thank you for your kind words. It's definitely due time I've sunk into this, I work slow but I'm glad some likes it!

Yeah that's what I was meaning I just didn't know how to explain it. Amazing work though I love the look of the sprite

Well goodness I am -loving- this! Not that I'm biased to raptors or anything~ x3
Fantastic work though, seriously! Thank you so much for showing!

Can't wait to use this when the VSO scripts are ready. Alos this is not a request but, are there any plans on making great Wroggi, Boggi, and uh........(forgot the name of the one in generations. one sec..got it!) Maccao?

Currently there are no plans outside of the Jaggi itself. My motivation has been dead in the water for some time, and I've had more pressing matters such as college, relationships, moving, and more taking up my time. Technically I have had plenty of time to finish this, and my current passtimes are fading in value so who knows. I do wish to finish this, as I started many months ago and would hate to see all of my effort go to waste. I am very partial to all of those raptors you listed (especially Wroggi, so adorable) but considering the raw time it takes me to produce pixel sprites like the Jaggi, I don't think it is realistic for me to make many more. Maybe I just burnt myself out and it's taking me a very long time to recover. I have started and completed other art projects since the Jaggi began. It's entirely possible I could finish this but I don't want to make any promises. Ranting and whatever this is aside, I think it would be nice if I had all the time and motivation I wanted to finish this, but it's just difficult for me to work for now.

TLDR: No plans past Jaggi, do wish to finish.

Understandable. Was just curious.
