I really wanna help, but could you explain it a little more? Or make a small sketch? I don't know, if you want to make particles, which spread a "head sprite" all over the map or basically a particle effect, which is applied to the head?

edit: Here my first guess^^ ->

It's near impossible for me to animate such a character. He would stand still and had no walk animation etc.. Maybe, use the plasma effect?

That looks also cool .zyblade2012-01-31 16:29:38

@eony321v, here's one example. there are more complex ways that would give you more control by making your own particle system, but here's a simple example, of a particle stickman that's pretty quick to make. you can tweak the particle settings for different effects:

@zyblade, oops. I was using the next version of cc. I'll try to remember to make this in an older version later and repost it, though i'm not sure how @eony321v was able to open it, unless he just means the sprite particles example
