I edit it soon. So it won't just stand there so much.

Maybe if the net moved as well. Also the torch looks a bit wierd more like he is doing a magic act with it imo.

How about he beckons a little with his sword, as if to provoke his enemies?

:hmm: - nice ideas, but are provocations and posing really fitting for a stealthy assassin?

I find provoking fitting. He's an orc after all, maybe he likes to fight. I was planning to make an idle animations for the orcish assassin as well, by the way. One in which he'd walk with his hands, and one in which he'd bump on the ground when trying to do something flashy.

Ah i was inspired to make one ^^

Here is the rouge. He is supposed to be bending down and picking up something shiney, like a ring. The he subtlety puts it in his pocket. Its quite heavily frankenstiened, based off of his death animation, and needs cleaning

:lol2: - I'd love to see this!
Anyway, since it has been said that idle animation shouldn't draw too much attention (I guess those little stunts would be quite impressive), here's just another minor movement, based on the standing animation... perhaps the things you proposed would be even better for the slayer?

The rouges idle animation is cool - very fitting for sse nassty hobbitses :P - only the animation of his hand and turn of his head are perhaps not quite as fluent as they should be...

um... scratching you head with daggers coated in poison seems like a very bad idea (those are his throwing blades). I'm not sure if that was the intended point or not...

I like the concept, but I think he should look around shiftily a few times before putting it into his pocket, just for added effect.

He's an orc, which means he's not reputed for his intelligence. It could be part of the joke. :P

Combining it with a fake die animation would add to the funny I think.

Yes, it was - if the intention is not obvious enough the animation might be extended (fake death, as proposed, or after scratching his head he could be shocked from realizing that those were his poisoned knives and make sure he didn't hurt his skin...)

Logic need not apply. EELuminatus - could you post a zip file of the pngs for that?

sure... I also tried to smoothen the standing animation a bit.

EDIT: Aww, I just read on the other forum that you want hard edged shadows, again - sorry, haven't been here for too long. Will be fixed, later.
