Any Resemblance to Actual Events or Persons Living or Dead is Mostly Intentional but Not Particularly Successful.
An apology to anybody from the Salem High School, Salem, New Hampshire class of 1983 that might potentially recognize themselves (fat chance).

Here's one that I've been struggling with for a couple of days now. I liked the line art quite a bit but was NOT finding a color scheme and coloring method that appealed to me. In the end I had to compromise on both.
I'm not entirely sure why I am having such a difficult time with color palettes. I think it's time for me to do a few monochromatic coloring experiments just to work with values/tone and bit and not get so hung up on my crappy color choices.
To the batmobile!

At K12 (my super-deluxe employer) I've been working on a math game that uses germ characters and thought it might be fun to post some of the (simple) animations that I've created. The art shows the different states that the germs pass through over the course of a round: static, worried, hit and beaten. I had to keep the animations pretty simple for these (which is perfect, since I'm not really much of an animator) but I found that I could get pretty effective motion using a minimal amount of action frames -- and the randomization of the various bits helps add to the illusion of organic motion.
So, this is the first batch for the xGerms Multiplication game. There are a lot of these buggers so brace yourself.
