This is a test of the new style of "talking avatar" that I'll be doing starting from TOME Episode 03 and onward. Since there's no spoilers with Flamey, I decided to finish hers first and throw 'em up here for people to see as an example of what I'm going for. I think these already look a TON better than the originals.

I'd watch Episode 03 a hundred times just for the new ANIMs. Besides the Mata Nui Online Game, TOME is my favorite Flash Video Game.

You gotta love your fluent movements. They really work out and move -well- fluently. :iconbravoplz:
Could you upload everyone else's Talking Avatars? :?

Hey! Was this the outcome of those sketches I'd seen in your sketchbook? Haha

This is looking pretty good. I feel like the animated transitions will give the sprites more emotion when they're eventually paired with speech. The animation for the eyes is super smooth and your poses transition in a believable way that isn't choppy or out of place looking. :> Just remember to mind your proportions here and there!

Can't wait to see these in action in the 3rd episode. Keep it up!

Aaahh, now I completely understand what you meant about the moving avatars. The transitions are very nice, and really help keep the animation smooth. Looking forward to seeing how you'll apply them in future episodes.

This Talking Avatar format is a big improvement Kirbopher15! I like how there are actual movements to different poses instead of jump cuts. There is also even more detail than before! Way to put elbow grease in Kirbopher15! :thumbsup:;-)

Love how smooth Flamegirl's movements are. I wasn't so sure if I'd like the new avatars but, after seeing it in action, I realize that it looks great, in both the animation and the movement. :D Can't wait to see more!

Oh, yeah, these are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than just "BLINK here's a new expression!". I mean, the old way kinda worked anyway in a video game like sense, but this is just loads more creative.

Wow what a HUGE improvement!
Particularly, Flamy's sprite from before was one of my least favs but that completely changes with this one.
My god I love what you've done with the in between animation for each pose, they feel so much more lively
and energetic now. Not that I had a problem at all with the previous ones but this will make watching
TOME even more enjoyable. I'm dying to see what the other characters will look like, you are super talented c:
