I'm doing the April Fools challenge

I decided to try and create a Helm self-portrait using the Spartan style/technique

This is what I've got so far:

LOL, the only challenge I tried to enter was the Vista colors one. I joined when it had, like, two days left, so I thought I would be able to finish before the deadline. I got the basic thing down, but then the contest ended. I didn't really care, though, because it was fun. So I kept working on it even after the contest ended. LOL. It's about halfway finished now. I'm going to go work on it.

I want to do the fighting character challenge, making this piece above a ref for my fighting character... but is it an "original" character (as so called in the challenge)? (Because I made this piece after some anatomy lineart to give c&c for This piece by Marilii)

you draw it, its you original :P

Since it's a 2 week challenge(and that means a lot of time) I have decided what challenges I want to do.
  1. April Fool's Gallery Study : Maxana
  2. Tales from The Future
  3. Retro Remake
  4. Billy Jean Ilumination
  5. Close Encounters.
indeed, 5 challenges in a Row. 1st one is what I wanted to do months later after the challenge, the second one is a rematch of my rejected piece, third one was never made, forth one was an unfinished WIP, and fith and last will be the remake of the above posted animation.

I wish you the best of luck metaru... thats a hell of a lot of work  but if you do make it, it would be an amazing feat of pixeling... 

First version of my fighting character...:


What will be different  comparing it with the Gaia's Vengeance piece?
- Shorter and (hopefully) more natural and detailed hair (despite the size).
- No branches on the arms, but long fingers.
- Shorter (and broken/torn) roots on the legs...

If I had previously posted a WIP of the image but not recieved any posts, does that image still qualify as eligible as an entry to this challenge?

All 'unfinished' pixels allowed. Its a clean your hardrive thing.
As long as you did not enter the challenge when it originally was running.
We can't really verify so its gentlemen's honor.

Ready to make the frames, I guess? But what do i want to animate on it...? The hair I think (cause it looks like its windy there)... so also the whip, maybe a leaf on the branch on her leg... and a bit of idle stance movement like movement?

Edit: First crappy try at animating the sprite... it needs more frames and diversity in movement... and maybe i needa tackle the body movement of the character first, before trying details?

This is one of those pixels you start and never finish, but luckily I remembered it when I saw this challenge (love machine)! Probably won't end up submitting but hey... it's worth a shot. So here's the story: there's this bored-looking tv who suddenly explodes with colour. The in-between animation is still on the drawing board (in fact the whole animation is) however I was hoping it to look somewhat like OMGFossil's animation here. Please help!
...and animation somewhere in between...

Since it's a 2 week challenge(and that means a lot of time) I have decided what challenges I want to do.
  1. April Fool's Gallery Study : Maxana
  2. Tales from The Future
  3. Retro Remake
  4. Billy Jean Ilumination
  5. Close Encounters.
oops,
I challenged metaru.. for the 1 bit bittyness challenge.. I did not read this, now he ordered me to do this list too...

Manxana, why does he make so huge images?

Tales from the future, Ohnoes, thats huge too!

Retro remake: Ill search for the smallest screen possible.. sadly im not of the retro age, so its going to be hard to think of a game (probably one I dont know..)

Billie Jean ilumination: again huge!

Close encounters: I will remake my first finished non-iso pixel art..


AARG, lots of HUGE images!
im sure I am not going to finish them all, and im allmost sure metaru isnt as well....


EDIT:
Ill do this order: Manxana and 1 bit thing, than the close encounters, and then if I still have time the tales from future..

Manxana wip:


(not as detailed as the origional, but I dont have time to make it pixel perfect..)

Final animation... I have one problem... How do i get the BG transparent
(I cant get it done with Jasc animation shop 3... pasting in photoshop, making bg transparent and copying to animation shop doesnt work cause then the canvas will be small... too small)... Anyone who could tell me how to get the BG transparent or can someone do it for me?

Iaza makes the BG transparent, but it puts the old frames behind it, so it looks like one big blur at the last frame... But thanks for your help...

done

its easier than it looks:
Animation > Replace Colors > check the "all frames option" > select the BG color in the first box, and then select "transparence opacity" in the second one as the output. and that's all. the canvas will not change.

ah, and do not forget to set the palette(when you save the animation) to 256 when the optimizator appears. its right after the "customize" button.
