    Big update today! So, jump in the air and get ready to kick some flank! I've got Knick Knack's air attacks here for you today, what do you think?

    [​IMG]

    As per usual, here's what's going on in each one.
    Light - Knick Knack pulls out a paddle-ball (who remembers those?!) and shows off his skill with it in mid-air.
    Medium - Knick Knack dawns his chef's hat and uses an oversized egg-beater (this'll make sense later, trust me) to whisk his opponent. (This attack is a multi-hitter).
    Heavy - Knick Knack pulls out a Jack-- . . . small horse-In-The-Box? And the toy sends his opponent backwards from the impact to give himself some distance.

    So, what do you guys think of these? Like always, thank you for keeping up with my progress! Have a great day, and I'll bring more soon!

    Well yeah. He's got a great design. You're making a full set of attacks, jumps, hits, etc. He's a currently unused species. He's got a lot going for him. lol

    Side note, if they met, I think Paprika would be the death of him. xD

    very noice, the chef hat one is a bit odd but like you said, it'll make sense later so I'm eager to see what that's about. But something I've been wondering about your character for a while is... what KIND of fighter are you leaning towards with his play style? you know, Arizona's the rusher and general ground beat downs, Tianhuo is pretty much an air attacker. aaaand.. Oleander keeps her distance to a certain degree. and so does Velvet. and Paprika... I forgot what she does.. oh, and pom.. hmmmmm... trap characters I guess? I don't know any of the "official"slang names for the styles..

    this is possibly too early of a question but I was just curious.

    P.S. if somebody already asked you that I'm sorry I am repeating the question.

    That's a good question, and I've been thinking about making him somewhat of a zoner with his own 'unique' type of projectiles/items that differ from the 'projectile-based' characters we already have. It sounds a bit vague as of now, but I'll elaborate on this more once I show off his magic and special attacks!

    Howdy y'all! Today I've got the last of Knick Knack's basic attacks, and that's his crouching moves!

    [​IMG]

    Here's what's going on in each one:
    Light: "This is great! We can stay up late, swapping mule-ly stories, and in the morning. . ."
    Medium: "I'm makin' waffles!" See? I told you the egg-beater would start to make sense! He's always prepared to whip up his favorite snack.
    Heavy: Knick Knack uses a giant Drinking Bird to attack. . . Because we've all got one of those lying around somewhere!
    Launcher: Knick Knack uses a horn to show off his lack of musical talent. The powerful, broken notes send his opponent up into the air.

    Figuring these out have been the most difficult so far, and I'm really curious to know what you guys think of them! Once again, thanks for giving my thread a look, and have a great day!

    . . . DONKEH' !

    As a side note: I rather appreciate the fact that you keep changing the name of the thread each update. I find it amusing, and also quite charming.

    What's up everyone! Before I get into the magic, special, and eventually the supers for Knick Knack; I've got a few extra sketches of things I couldn't really lump with any of the other updates. I hope you like these little extras!

    [​IMG]

    1 - Knick Knack's 'staggered' pose as he takes a few steps back.
    2 - Knick Knack adds some shades to complete his victory pose.
    3 - Knick Knack fires off toast from his backpack to catch his opponent in mid-air.

    Alright guys, we're getting to big stuff. It's going to take some time, and many sheets of paper to make sure I get it right (or at least try to). I hope you liked this little update, and I'll see you in the next one! Have a great day!

    Well, it could fall to the ground and vanish after a second, or it could just poof away in mid-air if the attacks are consecutive.

    Hello! Today I've got Knick Knack's Magic Attacks! It took a lot of thinking, but I think I've finally got them settled.

    [​IMG]

    (For the sake of convenience, Magic Attack will be described as 'A')
    He has three types of Magic Attacks: Standard, Forward, Backward and Down. These attacks can only be initiated on the ground, and every attack begins with Knick Knack reaching into his backpack as shown above. He will toss out one of three items (Further than two feet in front of him, of course. I've only depicted it as a shorter distance to save space on paper. Same goes for the general size of the items. I may have drawn them a bit small.), and they stay on the stage until they are used, or another is thrown out. As for his Magic Bar, I was thinking of having it behave like Velvet's, and charges over time; but that's still up for debate.

    Standard A: Knick Knack tosses out an alarm clock. Once activated, this item will bounce and ring, causing an 'area of effect' damage zone.
    Forward A: Knick Knack tosses out a television. Once activated, this item's screen will flash on with a hypnotizing swirl for a short time. If the opponent is close enough, and in its field of view, they will become disoriented and dizzily wobble about for a few seconds. This item does not do damage, as this would provide Knick Knack an opportunity to strike. However, the opponent can jump over it as long as they're not caught in the screen's field of view.
    Backward A: Knick Knack tosses out a table fan. Once activated, this item will blow a strong gust of wind for a short time, pushing against the opponent, and making it difficult for them to approach. This item does not do damage.
    Down A: Knick Knack crouches down and connects two electric plugs that lead to his backpack, causing a small flash of electricity. Once connected, whatever item Knick Knack has tossed out will activate.

    I hope you like what I've come up with! If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to ask! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

    Hey! Time for some special moves!

    [​IMG]

    Forward Special: A boomerang! The projectile that comes back! Not only will his opponent have to worry about it head-on, but they'll have to watch their backs when it comes back around. Once Knick Knack deploys his boomerang, he cannot throw out another until the first makes its way back to him. Each of the attack buttons will determine how fast the boomerang travels. Light Attack being the slowest, and Heavy Attack being the fastest.
    Back Special: Knick Knack pulls out an antique mirror. It's used to reflect oncoming projectiles such as Velvet's icicle, or Oleander's spells; and will do damage to the opponent if successfully reflected. However, it cannot reflect any projectiles that come from behind or below. This item does not do damage, and cannot be used in mid-air. As far as reflecting Supers such as Velvet's and Oleander's, I haven't really decided on that yet.

    And that's all I've got for now. I hope you like what I've made, and have a wonderful day!

    Time for something 'super'. . ! No?

    [​IMG]

    For Knick Knack's Super, he slams his backpack onto the ground, ties a handkerchief around his neck, and watches with excitement as a barrage of waffles flies into the air towards his foe. Stay tuned for his Special Super coming up next! Until then, have a wonderful day!

    And it fires in spurts.

    And now for his Special Super!

    [​IMG]

    During his Normal Super, Knick Knack can activate his Special Super where he yanks on a rip-cord that extends from one of the pockets of his backpack, and covers his ears as his bag springs to life. During this time, the player has total control of the backpack as gadgets constantly explode with attacks. The bag can jump (as depicted here) or can travel forward on wheels. The player must deal as much damage as possible before the attack ends. However, Knick Knack will remain stationary; and if he receives damage during this time, the Super will end. Whether it's interrupted, or the attack ends, the backpack will travel back to him; and he will strap it back on.

    So, I'm surprised I made it this far. From the Basic to the Supers, there's only one more thing I 'know' I need to make. However! Before I get to that, do you feel there is something I may have glossed over? Some sort of attack or pose I may have missed? At the moment, I know I've left out the 'Block' and 'Grab'. So, I suppose those will come next along with anything else mentioned here. We're getting pretty close to the end, and this has been a lot of fun for me so far! I hope you've been having fun as well! As always, have a wonderful day, and I'll be back soon!

    Thanks! I'm so glad you like them!
    Well, I drew a lot as a wee lad, but I didn't really get into drawing until High School. So, maybe about five years . . . give or take. Even so, I still don't consider myself that great of an 'artist'; but I try my best. ^_^

    I've finally got Knick Knack's Grab figured out! I've drawn up a little mock-up Velvet just for demonstration purposes. What do you think?

    [​IMG]

    Knick Knack swaps out his piece of wheat for a red rose, and goes in for the kill! He reaches out his hoof for a dance, and twirls his foe wildly (In this case, Velvet, will receive small amounts of damage during the twirl). Then, as he strikes his finishing pose, a larger chunk of damage is done before sending his foe tumbling backward. As a side note, his Backward Throw would be the same thing as depicted above, just mirrored to send the opponent the other direction.

    Coming soon, his Block and Taunt! See you then!

    Well, it's time. Let's keep spreading the love with Knick Knack's Blocks! I'm not talking about Legos though (cue cricket sounds).

    [​IMG]

    What's a better way to show her you care than with a box of chocolates! He uses its heart-shaped box to block the tough love, then gleefully offers the candies as his Push-Block!

    And that's pretty much all the moves! Shoutouts to TheGoldenW for helping me out with the stuff I've missed! So, as always, have a wonderful--WAIT! YOU THOUGHT I FORGOT?!



    [​IMG]

    Huh . . . that came out larger than I thought it would; but yes! I've got two updates in one! Don't worry ty4brawl, I didn't forget you.
    So, for his taunt, a speaker and a disco-ball pop out from Knick Knack's backpack as he joyfully bounces about to his favorite tunes!

    Now that I've covered everything (I think), it's time for the story behind Knick Knack and his kin: The Pack Mules! Which will have to come in the next update. 'Til then, thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
