I cant quite get this mining animation right and I dont know how to fix it


It is nearly perfect but not quite.

The #help section is for help with Aseprite. For feedback on your art, you should use the #artwork section.

There’s no power to the pickaxe “swing”, it seems more like the character is handing the pickaxe to someone rather than mining. “Put your back into it” as they say - they should lean back, and swing down and forward with it, either overhead or sideways (however you prefer; sideways is more realistic in most situations, but overhead has a clearer silhouette).

You also have no recovery phase in the motion, the character moves the pickaxe and… nothing. There’s no feedback from having hit anything, and no follow-through from not having hit anything.

Thanks for telling me. That would also probably make it look more fluid and realistic.
