SuperTux running anim

I noticed that Tux doesn't actually have a sperate running animation when in his Super form - but small Tux does.
Would contributing sprites for his brand-new running anim be welcome?

Probably, although I'm starting to wonder if a running animation is really needed.

I mean, currently small Tux has a running animation, but big Tux doesn't. Consistency would require big Tux to have one, too.
It also is useful for gameplay information, as it would allow the player to visually see the rate at which Tux accelerates.

Here's my WIP on the animation, traditionally animated (I can shrink it down when finished). In the future, I will add 'mirrored' set of frames where the wings will be moving in the opposite directions for a full loop.

Yeah, the run animation was commissioned for use in ReTux, then I think I submitted a patch to the SuperTux project adding use of it. ReTux doesn't have big Tux, so it never needed a big version of the animation, hence the discrepancy.

I'd feel quite sad if they didn't end up using Alzter's Run animation though.

Don't worry, I'll make a new one. The old one did look a bit too humanoid.

I don't know, it needs a lot of work. It doesn't convey movement very well and Tux's chest inflates and deflates like a balloon. Try getting the keyframes down first and do some research on how run cycles are animated.
