I made one where energy filled the sword completely (grip to point), but animation file was corrupted, although at the end I didn't like much the streams anyway and started a new one, the one at the right is an outdated one & couldn't find the file for the full size (this animation is old actually), posted the sprite again for reference.
Loop is not completely perfect in this image, it's kind of hard looping all the elements in the same gif without making the file size too big.

Updated this a bit btw.

It will take some time to complete, designing the moves is proving to be rather difficult

Anyway, I drew part of the dress, but she still got plenty of loose clothing and ornaments left to do.

Magician Type-0
Got the idea from Dartzpie while we were at the Mugen Free For All chat, and started sketching a sprite of him, kinda lost interest midway, but posting it anyway because don't know if I'll bother in finish the body too, did it some time ago.

Made a few energy blasts, still not convinced completely, may draw a few more, this is part of a cinematic move I'm planning.

Drawing the continuation for this combo, also trying a couple of new programs to sketch my animations, so far I'm really liking them.

Anyway, gameplay related was planning to make her rather slow moving and weak at close combat, but strong and capable of press the enemy at mid-long range (like shown in the gif image), since she's a puppeteer & most of the attacks are done mainly by puppets obviously (those are strings, not whips btw :­P)
This was just a quick test.

Alice how long do you believe it took you to get as good as you are at sketching your graphics?  :-w

Well, that's a simple question with a potentially complex answer.
I mean, have been into pixel art for 4-5 years IIRC, but I've messed with different types of graphic work for longer than that, like 8-9 years, drawing architecture is a part of my job too.

During all that prior time I learned some stuff that helps with the spriting part, but probably shouldn't take that long for someone commited to only one thing to improve, because I practice different kinds of graphics during free time instead of focusing in only one thing.

Like, at times I practiced 3D, sometimes CGI FX, other times hand drawn animation, other times pixel art, etc...  lately I've been interested in digital illustration too, so I guess it will take more time to improve in one area, maybe shouldn't do this but keeps the motivation.

There's no limit in learning on any of them though, I keep on doing it.


Updated slightly, could end with the puppet exploding.

Oh you're fine don't worry i love complex answers! & That's great to hear actually.
 So last question, Out of all of those expertise which one do you enjoy doing the most and which one do you dislike the most?

Don't dislike any really, but I have preferred ones.
Even though 3D makes life easier when it comes to fighting games since it's more practical and faster once you're adept enough at it (which is why a lot of companies opted for 3D), I still like 2D hand drawn animation better when it comes to giving life to characters, maybe is all those small details that you can add to chars to give more dynamism to animations.

Also, might be just me, but when you need to rely too much on softwares to do the job (such as modelling), constant practice is needed in order to not forget how interfaces work, or keep up to date to the program updates so that your skills don't become dull (like once I forgot how to print using scale after a while of not using a couple of CADs).

Regardless, I grew fond of 3D for background work and is pretty useful, like that animation is pretty much hand drawn, except for the explosion at the end.

Magnificent. I'm happy that i was able to pick your brain a little bit and explore your interests. It was great and i appreciate the detailed explanations as well! Can't wait to see your character fully completed.  O0 ;)
