Ink's CPS3 Demitri Animated by CallMeMrA Ink's CPS3 Demitri Animated by CallMeMrA
First things first, this was based initially off animated linework done by DA user inktrebuchet (inktrebuchet.deviantart.com/ ) which I proceeded to try and clean up a bit... and then got terribly out of hand with.

Edit: Now that I have a moment to add to the description, the original linework by ink was likely inspired by eFex's (omegaefex.deviantart.com/ ) take on the character, with the head, feet and general colors used being borrowed from there. Beyond that point, I ended up cleaning up lines and some anatomy to closer match the original frame, added a handful of frames for fluidity, and tossed in a makeshift cape and aura as a proof of concept animation. In a more polished format, there'd probably be another few stretched frames to space out the aura in parts as well as make the cape a bit more fluid.

I know this is for showing the frames but I would suggest this:
breathing animation (and cape animation) → he stops breathing for a while and the cape still moves → he proceeds to breathe again.

Like Gill in SF3, he breathes, stops for some time, then repeats. And in the same time his hair moves a lot.

The cape needs more frames of animation. But it's not bad as a starting point. :)

This is indeed mostly a proof of concept animation more than anything. Certain frames at the height and bottom of the breathing cycle would probably be stretched out more in a finished version, giving a bit more room for some additional slow aura movement and cape movement, although I actually opted to keep it a bit more subtle than the CPS2 original for the new aesthetic.

inktrebuchet didn't make that original sprite. eFex made that sprite.

Technically correct, especially as the head and feet used in the buildup I started working from were eFex's. The base animation though was hand drawn by ink; I actually did mention eFex's influence on the overall design on the tumblr postings, but seem to have forgotten it here, so I'll add that into the description.

Thank you for the update. I just wanted to make sure he was not left out.

But ink animated it. So in a certain way he's right.
Hey, I wrote this first! XD
It's because of the timezones.
