Hey matees, back with another drawing.
Really need to work on making pixelart quicker.

This animation took more time than I'd like to admit to finish, mainly because about halfway through I just for some reason didn;t want to work on it any longer. This certainly is my bets drawing or animation, but it;s one of my different ones and I had fun making it for the most part.

I used 13 colors [14 if you count the transparent pixels] to make this
Hope you enjoy it c:

The most convincing water effect achieved in pixel art I've ever seen, bravo!

Love this a lot!

 Stickman - Thanks matee!

 DexRunner - Thanks! I learned from Youtube - that a good preivew or thumbnail can save a bad drawing. Im kidding haha - but yeah I try to put as much effort into my preview or at least  afair amount in comparioson to the drawing I want people to be interested in. 

It's 24 frames - each frama the wave move down 1 pixel. 12 frames center for any part, and 6 frames left and 6 frames rights for each part. and believe me - that was tedious to execute but the effect was worth it haha. 
thank you!!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/11/2018 15:36

Love it!     

DexRunner (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/11/2018 13:31

This is really good, Fleja!  Your previews are always amazing, too. They're like their own little pixel submission. It's like you're always giving us a two-for-one deal!  

I didn't see it before you added the ripples, but I'm sure it looks that much more alive now. I was trying to figure out how you did it so I zoomed in and finally think I figured it out.  It's kind of similar to my VHS Style pixel submission except it's less random in the horizontal lines you used. I just wanted to let you know how cool it is to have work like yours to examine to help us get better. Thanks and keep up the great work!

Taki - the Wave animation is more time consuming than anything else - at least for what I used to create it. It took at least 6 hours to thoroughly produce that effect for me - Thank you!

Fleja2003 (Level 7 Lotus) @ 6/11/2018 10:42

Zephyrrite - Thanks! - the preview was fun to make c:

Fleja2003 (Level 7 Lotus) @ 6/11/2018 10:41

AirStyle - Thank you! that was the goal haha

Taki (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 6/11/2018 09:00

This is amazing, really inspires me to try the same technique if i understood it correctly. Pretty simple and very effective. 

Zephyrrite (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 6/11/2018 04:57

This is so beautiful! Love how you animated the preview too.

AirStyle (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/11/2018 04:45
