"Fast, maneuvrable and reliable. The Queen's Mercy-Class Frigates were the backbone of the Middle-Lands royal navy (when it once had a backbone)".

after 20 hours or more (or less I lost count) I can't stand to look at it a second more.

edit: mixed up the files (was a simple scrolling but still)

Love all the details, like the flag and the flapping metal.

DukeDarer (Level 3 Clone) @ 12/5/2021 14:20

This really shows the amazing stuff you can do with just two colours.

Thanks ZeeZerd ! I appreciate your comment !

I agree with you. although animating fabric movement is hard, I'll give it a try.

ZeeZerd (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 1/10/2018 09:44

forgot to comment on this masterpiece.
my only gripe with it is the flag, it should be waving more fiercly imo.

shm31 (Level 6 Made) @ 1/9/2018 09:58

Thanks jok , Fleja2003 , Mr_Hk_ , timothywalter , Renard888 !

timothywalter (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/9/2018 02:44

Wow very inspiring, makes me want to give a go at making something with so few colours. Plus love the subject, fictional machinery rocks

Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/9/2018 01:58

Congrats, It looks super good.

Fleja2003 (Level 7 Lotus) @ 1/8/2018 10:43

Wow - that's amaxing!
Congratulation on first place haha - the skill and precise pixel placement is incredible c:

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/8/2018 02:15

shm31 (Level 6 Made) @ 1/6/2018 20:38

Thanks Sasha127 ! You're talented too, keep up the good work !

Sasha127 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/6/2018 12:25

Hi! I think that this is awersome, you're super talented

shm31 (Level 6 Made) @ 1/6/2018 09:42

Thanks  Lucas, WreX, Esven, Char212, scriblroid, ||||, jackhummer, Irenaart !

I am glad that you liked it, this really made it worth it !

@ IIII : I'll try to slow down the whole piece a little. the scrolling is dependant on it being the canevas divisible by 48 (the number of frames of the ship repeated four times ), that's why its a little too fast. (but I think I can say it's strong winds).

jackhummer (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/5/2018 23:58

You finished it.Great work 

|||| (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 1/5/2018 21:54

Wow, awesome frigate! You'll probably win and should with such an effort and great animation. I only feel like the clouds should move at half that speed or even a little less.

scriblroid (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/5/2018 20:23

winner! it's a real marvel to look at!

Char212 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/5/2018 19:30


Esven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/5/2018 17:51

960x420, I don't blame you for not wanting to look at it a moment more that's a really ambitious size for a weekly contest piece not to mention animating it.  It turned out really well I think though.  Some fantastic detail for two colors.
