Hey guys, I am UnickyXComix, but you can call me Ky for short (It's close to my real name Keishawn). Long story short I'm a washed up traditional artist and newbie digital artist and I'm rearing my head into animation and spritework. For some dumb reason, I've decided to start right here in the world of Mugen. I guess I just like jumping into the Lion's den.

I've been trying to plan out my animations just to really understand the gamut of this project. Here's a relatively small list of the animations I have and their progress.

Basic
Idle - Line art complete (Color, pen, sprite, touch up)
Walk - Line art 60% (Everything above)
Jump - planning
Jump Squat - planning
Crouch - planning
Dash - Stopping

Attacks
L punch
M punch
H punch
L kick
M kick
H kick
Special 1
Special 2
Special 3

Supers

Super 1
Super 2
Ultra

I can't post the animations now because I'm using my phone. So I'll post the gifs for the animations later on. I'm going for a street fighter kind of character and I'd really appreciate suggestions for animations I'll need. Thanks for reading.

So there's this, http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/optional-animation-standards-138791.0.html
As it says it's optional. But if you're making a character for mugen, you definitely want to look into it.
For your basic animations you'll have to have the blocks. I always recommend a mugen character have a way out of the corner. Either Push Block or a Roll out. There are just too many characters that can apply constant 100% pressure in the corner. They become unfair if you dont have a way out.
Look at Kung Fu Man's animations. Dont worry about his specials, just look at the blocks and the hit animations. The hit animations are pretty important. The more you have the better the character will flow against everyone. Especially characters that throw.
I also like having more than the standard 18 basic attacks. 6 standing, 6C, 6A. I like being able to hold forward and get a different attack. Things like that make a character feel unique.
