Back to Bits - Critical Hits

I was invited to take part in @Jerry Liu Studio's Back to Bits: Super 16! For those unfamiliar, Back to Bits is a collection of animations from all different artists to celebrate the video games from their youth.

I was lucky enough to make a tribute for one of my all time favorite games, Chrono trigger, which boasts some of the best story, characters and combat systems of all time.
Akira Toriyama's character designs are great, and I especially loved the combat animations: Crono and Frog's critical hits in particular. I made these animations in illustrator a frame at a time based on the original sprite sheets from the game. Not the most efficient way to do it, but a great learning experience.

Check out the full collection (and Jerry's other work) linked above, and watch the music montage here:

Great work, everyone!
