Is there any guide out there for creating 2D avatars beyond a texture on a plane? What I’m trying to do is get something similar to old FPS shooters in terms of appearance, although all of the sprites I have access to are front-facing. Ideally it’d use a walking sprite sheet when walking in-game, an idle sheet for when standing still, etc. I have no idea how to do this, and I don’t know if this is out of my ability or even possible as I don’t really know much about using Unity beyond what’s necessary for uploading a normal 3D avatar.
You can try seraching in youtube, there are some tutorials on how to create 2D avatars. For the moving animations you will need to research about Playable layers and how to create you own custom locomotion animations
