It is a sort of dinosaur, I want to add some ridges and/or some wings. Anyway the violet line rappresents an hypothetic horizon. I'm not sure I'll make a BG.

Since it is the sun, and there is no real surface to walk on, I went with a fishy creature made of fire.

The fin animation is done, I plan on animating the side arms and doing a trail of flame (tricky part )

Maybe.
100x100 is the max, but it can be smaller right?
If I finish the fish just the way I like it I can work on some background and ambiance stuff.

So far making the cosmos in the back ground has been the most chalenging part. But I think I'll be able to make it look awesome.

It must be difficult being the only living thing on the Sun. Everyone thinks you are a monster! D:

My first draft. I'll come back to this later with fresh eyes. It's looking a little too busy for me. I might come back in and smooth it out a bit.

Can I rappresent more than one monster? Of the same specie of course, not another original one.

Some progress with the fire.
I have moved those pixels around for so long now to make up for the fact that the fish is moving. Also the top of the fish is a bit too static, need to fix that.




@curvedlines : wow dude, that looks fantastic!


update: Used the whole 100x100 pixels in the end, but I think it just ended up adding too much noise and taking away from the original, but oh well, all in good practice.

Reminds me of the monster "pitch black" from the old handheld series skannerz. In other words, it looks ******* awesome

This is pretty average so far. I think I'm going to need to break the animation down more logically... Was thinking a flaming eye.

I didn't want to do this just yet, but I feel like I'm going the wrong way.

How's this look so far?

5 quick ideas O: any good? started a bit late, just noticed the challenge, intended to enter last weeks too but didn't find time._.



Edit: DAMMIT just lost alot of challenge related pixels program crashed, only like the 2nd or 3rd time this year
http://i.imgur.com/jll8A.png < is what I was working on, some whale like creatures and phoenix like flame birds coming out of the surface of the sun, didn't save them once before that crash I was cropping the canvas down to 100x80 when it crashed :/

*what's up with the hyper linking?
