The new and improved AntLion!
I hired Bruno Corgo to re-design the AntLion and it came out better than I ever could have imagined:
Bruno not only made it "half ant, half lion" but he gave him a chest, which is something I would not have done and I freaking love it! He almost seems like a centaur, which is badass and it helped me realize that instead of a sword, this character should be wielding a bow. The game is coming along much faster now that I've hired Bruno to create the pixel art assets for the character and enemies. It allows me time to focus on actually building the game instead of spending endless hours making assets.
Next he will be working on the run animation. I will post that once I have it!
