Sprite animation: 2 badass women showing off their fighting skills

First up is an enemy character, a blond haired, leopard print wearing scrapper… I don’t have a name for her yet. As with most of the enemy designs, she’s loosely based on a quick sketch I made of a person I saw walking down the street one day. I added some purple here and there and BOOM, new character. I went back and forth with the hair between keeping the wavy fro vs. a flat top (which seems all the rage these days, where are we, 1991?), but I think it came out pretty well.

Her one-two attack is a nail scratch attack that can cause a bleeding type status effect, influenced almost completely by my brief stint with Marvel Avenger’s Alliance. Status effects are going to play heavily in the pacing of battles in Treachery in Beatdown City.

Next is a character you’ve already seen, Lisa Santiago.

Here she’s showing off her boxing/MMA roots with boxing style jabs followed by an uppercut plus some MMA style leg kicks to slow her opponent down and a clinch grab followed by some face punches to that no good punk (who also doesn’t have a name yet).

Hope you like the animations, let me know what you think in the comments or on twitter!
