I received a lot of feedback on the top down solider tutorial and a few requests for additions. This tutorial will cover one request for enemies to go with the soldier. What’s better than a few zombies. I decided to make this tutorial a little different – rather than show a step by step on how to create things, I am going to take the zombie walk cycle apart and explain (or hope to explain) how it’s done.
The files for the zombies are here.
You can use them for your presonal and commercial projects as long as you don’t resell the art itself or in a bundle.
If you open the inkscape files you will find the zombies in eight layers (one layer per animation frame).
Seeing it’s zombies walking. You want to consider adjusting the animation to make it less smooth. Have him shuffle one leg, move the body/ head in an odd way, reach out with his arms, or just move one arm.
