I purchased this and I'm very happy with it. The only possible flaw I see in the design is in the red shirt variation, which looks like a sprite of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

Haha, I'm not sure if Ace Ventura is known for a red shirt, but I remember someone else commented the same thing a while back. I think the hairstyle is a little similar.

I'm glad you like the asset and that it's working for you! Feel free to recolor the shirt or any other parts as necessary for your project.

Is it possible to make a request? I'm in the process of designing something using this character, but I'm in dire need of a throwing animation. Right now, I'm using frames from the punch animation, but it just looks like he's punching and things are spawning from his fist. I'm not the greatest artist in the world (nor would I even make the top 500, or the top 1000, or the... well, you get it). I'm really hoping you will be willing to help me with this, though I will completely understand if you're too busy to do so. I just figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Hi there, glad to hear you're putting the character to good use!

Yes, I can add a throwing animation, but it might be a little while. Currently prepping to demo my game at a convention in early March, but I will put this update on my calendar for mid-March. Are you looking for just a standard overhand throw?

Yes, a simple overhand throw would be terrific. Nothing fancy needed, really. I just want to implement tossing objects as a way of defeating enemies as opposed to using traditional weapons or doing a cliche head stomp. Thank you so much for this. I hope your convention goes well. :)
