    Hi guys! Please note that this is not an official collab thread. I'm here to see if people would be interested in the following collaboration between spriters and animators.

    Idea:
    So Fashion Collab! There are a lot of fantastic existing sprite costumes and weapons that, sadly, aren't being used from the latest Maplemation Sprite packs (Project SP and MMSP). The idea is to showcase these sprites in the form of a "model-catwalk" kinda thing!

    Spriter
    Spriters willfocus on spriting new outfit designs or spriting poses for the outifts. Poses will mostly include walk sequence if nothing else is requested.

    Animator:

    As animator you will be animating the characters in a interesting way! Preferably fullbody animated, but if you can do something cool without it then go ahead. Just keep in mind the poses are limited to those the spriter sprites. Or you can sprite for yourself ofc!

    Collab in detail will be further described in the official thread. Please post your interest and vote in the poll (multiple choices available)!

    Poll result: It seems like there aren't enough spriter that would like to participate in this. Therefor this collab will have to be postponed.

    So basically spriters are making a sprite sheet and animators are animating said sprite sheets in actiony/funny ways?

    Sweet ideas Jaycie.
    Would be really good for specialised weapons that need to meet certain things to work nice.
    Those weapons would be really cool too, we need summa those.
    Have you tried asking spriters directly for their input for this ?

    Spriting poses would help me practice spriting my custom character, and designing seems fun but I don't think I'm good at that particularly, so that is a no for now.

    And so my expressed interest in working on stuff goes that far, but contributing ideas and being a part of something seems fulfilling as well, so I guess I mean I would like to help if I could.

    Thanks for everyone who showed interest to this idea! It seems like we don't have enough spriters who are interested in this idea.

    This collab will be postponed for some other time.

    Thread can be closed now.

    Sorry for not noticing this for so long. It sounds like a pretty cool idea and i wish to join if you want to realize this in the later future, like this summer, i'm too busy with other projects right now.
    I had in mind and discussed some things with paul about a new sprite pack. But well, we will see, it's too early to tell but i can imagine we can do something neat if we start around summer and end on around christmas with a nice gift for the community presented in an awesome way.
    Let me know when you start this, even if you intend to start before summer, i tend to miss a lot lately.
