    Running up/down animations
    [​IMG]
    - The running down has the vanilla shadow and my extended shadow.
    - The running up also has the vanilla shadow and my extended shadow.
    It also has a version where the shadow is 1 tile higher (the 2 horses on the bottom right) so you can see the paws peeking at the bottom of the shadow, to match the running down animation.

    The kitchen come in two recolors: Chocolate (like my real life kitchen) and Beige (to match my first dresser). The rooms look the same on both versions. There’s also an optional fireplace.
    And... there’s a little “Easter egg” teaser hidden somewhere. I wonder if anyone can find it. ;)

    You can leave a tip/donation by clicking the tip jar above. These are 100% optional!

    You'll require a Twitch account to donate, sorry about that. If you don't have one, don't worry, it's 100% free to make. The reason why I chose this donation method, is some people don't have a credit card/Paypal account, and Gaming4Good offers a ton of payment options.

    I've been unemployed for 2 years now (I graduated from college and still couldn't get a job) so any tips/donations will go towards helping me and my family support just everyday expenses.

      W.I.P. :
      Horse base

      [​IMG]

      I decided to go for a no-saddle version for a number of reasons: not everyone likes the saddle; I'd need to have several saddle recolors because I did some color testing and the vanilla one doesn't look as good in some of the other horse breeds; the saddle isn't really visible when you're riding the horse anyways.

      I used the Redesigned Horse Running Animation as base. For the side animation, I made the legs 1 pixel long and then made the neck 2 pixels higher. For the up/down animations I made the head/back 1 pixel higher and 2 pixels chubby, to mimic the Bigger Draft Horse Model and then tweaked it a bit to my liking (like making all the shadows move instead of just the one on the side view).

      However, I'm still not happy with how the shadows look to be honest. It look weird, as if the horse is getting fatter as it runs...

      The tail movement when the horse is eating is a bit exaggerated as well, since I used the tails I already had available. I'll also need to fix that.

        Yes girl, I love your work so far. Also about the whole college thing, that's my biggest fear. I've been in college for roughly a collected 5 years, give or take a few semesters and haven't progressed due to change of major and "finding" myself academically. So basically next year I'm supposed to sit down with an counselor and try to find a major that I only need a few classes built ontop of what I've already taken. So basically, I'm thinking General Technology Degree. Anywho can't wait to see more of your work! Good luck!

          Update:​


          [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

          Still didn’t manage to fix all the shadows (still running experiments) and I went back to the original Redesigned Horse Running Animation shadows for the time being.
          Also, I hadn't noticed so far that my image editor makes shadows brown when I export the file as .gif. It won't have that color in game.

          I did manage to tweak the tails (after doing dozens of different tails all day long) and manes a bit more though, as well as some stray pixels and stuff like that.

            Update:
            Running Down horse base​

            Another update, this time on the tail and shadow:
            [​IMG]
            I think I’m finally satisfied with the way the shadow is turning out. My only problem is knowing how I’ll manage to replicate something similar on the running up animation.

              Does the running up base match the running down base?

                Does anyone else see something else that needs tweaking? I've been working on these for 4 days now. I think I'm getting to that point where the more I look at these the less I can see.

                  Well, if your looking for feedback, personal opinion, I don't like your most recent shadow changes. The running down shadow just makes the horse look fat, and running up one just looks like an extra dark outline around the legs, it doesn't look like a shadow to me. I liked how they were yesterday. Other than the shadow thing I really love your horse it's very cute.

                    [​IMG]
                    I never saw anyone else make a horse base where the horse blinked, but the static eye was starting to creep me out.

                      Constructive feedback is always welcome and much appreciated. :)


                      Really? You think the new shadows make the horse fat? The reason I changed those shadows in the first place is I thought the old shadows made it look fat. xD

                      While the new shadows only follow the horse's movements (and are actually 1 pixel smaller than the original shadow, on each side), the old shadow was not only 2 pixels wider, but was also expanding and getting even bigger as the horse was running. But, like I said, the more I look at these the less I can see. It's good to have an outside perspective.

                      Here's a side-by-side comparison of both shadows:

                      [​IMG]

                      And here's a side-by-side comparison of both the old shadow and a merge between both shadows:

                      [​IMG]

                      Which of the horses looks fatter now? Still the one on the right?

                      One thing I noticed though, comparing the animation of the horse running down with the horse running up, is that the running down is rounder, you can actually see where the thighs are, but when the horse is running up, it's just a flat line. Not sure if I could add some extra shape or if it would just make it look weird.

                        Maybe like a combination of both. Like if you can make the shadow around the hips thinner and maybe not expand so much when moving.
                        I can't do gifs or anything but this is sorta of what i was thinking. [​IMG]

                          I was already working on combining both shadows when you were typing and this is what it ended looking like:

                          It's not exactly what you had in mind though, I might give your version a try tomorrow if I can.

                                The shadow color is just from my image editor. Every time I try saving the .png as .gif it changes the shadow color from light grey (default vanilla color) into dark brown. No idea how to fix it.

                                I did. That's one of the things I might not share though, since it also includes collages of content made by other people. I might post a screenshot on my Tumblr at some point and, if anyone is interested, I can send it on a PM or something.

                                    I think the version you had was this one: [​IMG]

                                    I'm using this one now: [​IMG] I stole the bookcase column and the stove and reverted the white bed back to wood because a) my house was suddenly too white b) I had nothing to match the beds in the kids room. xD The bottom stuff is from a mod.

                                      Maybe I'll end up making a kitchen mod inspired by my real kitchen. That way, I can actually add it to the list and share it.
                                      Ofc that might take a loong time since I still want to make 14763825 horses first and didn't even finish the base yet. xD

                                        You should totally do that. We need way more kitchen mods.

                                          I agree. We do and yours is soooooooooooooooooo nice! If you dont mind I'd love it if you could send me a PM with it, I just love how you took bits and pieces and made your own version. I did the same .. I have a black/silver kitchen and bed set at the moment but like you, just edited in other peoples lovely work.
