Here is the latest update for the hero sprite of Into the Dungeon ++. I drew inspiration from Aragorn (dev's suggestion) and Gatsu, the main character of the Berserk manga. As of now, this little guy has four directions walking cycles, attacks, standing animations, and a death animation (which is the last thing I've done).
The game this will feature in is a roguelike, and even two-frame animations are pretty much ZOMG HERETICAL HIGH TECH!!! for roguelikes.
