While being in process of making my entry to the week challenge, I got a little bit tired and decided to relax and make a cool avatar for myself. I took a part of the current picture and update it a little bit.

More important, it was my first attemt at animation. So, I've decided to deal with fire, because you can't go wrong with fire, I thought. Poor me. Never was wrong so much.

Nevertheless, any comms&crits are heartly welcomed, especially your wise advices. Animation is hell of a tricky thing, I guess I'm getting old for that kind of you know what.

Oh now I get it! And next time I will try it for sure. The thing is, that this skull is a part of my entry to the weekly challenge, so I was restricted in colours.

But honestly, colouring is my weekest spot not only in pixelation, but I will work hard to learn the magic. Thanks for support and explanations.

There are very good tutorials on PJ forums:

So, cluster is essentially a group of adjacent pixels that share the same color value. Rather than making color changes for every pixel, you apply the same color to a buch of pixels and form a cluster. Combined with the correct shape and form it gives a clean look. Here are two good examples of clusters:

And be sure to use the forums' WIP section. We have amazing pixel artists here and they will gladly help you out.

Cheers man!

Totally agree, but that animation process frazzled me out so much, I had no strength left to correct those properly. And by the way, if you don't mind, could you explain in advance what do you mean by clusters, because I'm not a native English speaker and a newb at pixelling.

Thanks for stopping by at mah skull!

Teeth area looks a bit busy. I think it would have looked better if you had clusters to imply teeth there. 

I like the metal/gothic feeling this has, keep it up!
