Amazing, beyond perfection!
Any individual part of this would be impressive on its own. This is stunning.
Woooooow, I cant say anything else!!
I pretty much only use Graphicsgale for all my pixelart. Not sure if that is the best option
these days, but it works for pretty much anything I want to do.
Just unbelievable... the animation, the design, the color count... just wow. The water splashing inside and the occasional droplet especially..
The sub and mines remind me of the arcade game In The Hunt, not sure if that's intentional, but if so, cool ref. :)
I don't have enough words.. this is a beautiful piece of art!!
the smooth animation is so pleasing to look at!
Beautiful animation, everything is full of movement!
Out of interest, what software do you use for animation? (I keep meaning to drop paint shop pro...)
Dayum bro whats up
Wow, that's incredible! As usual though!
Yeah, everything in sync wouldn't give that impression of water-like inertia and just quasi-randomizing it would't make the rythym of the waves. But, going for number 60 and using its many different divisors adds an entire level of mathematical beauty to this piece.
Your animations were already insane and this is even insaner.
I've spent hours at practicing my pixel art skills for so long. And sometimes, my mind would lose purpose. But then I'd take some time to study pieces from artists I looked up to. And right away, my purpose would come back. The constant improvement. The thirst to learn.
Looking at that piece gives me exactly that feeling.
Thank you for this. Thank you for existing. Really.
The colors are a little bit duller than your usual stuff...but it's one heck of an animation!
Good analysis! Yeah, I quickly realized that it looks weird when some parts animate
perfectly in sync with each other. This would be especially noticeable on
the sub and mines.
So I placed each element in such a way that no animation with the same cycle count is
close to each other.
Looks like I could grab it through the monitor! Masterful, as always.
I love this! The animation looks super good. It looks great

This is so good.
incredible! about as close to "mastery" of pixel art that i can imagine.
I want to make pieces like this one day. Extraordinay job.
The animation is superb!
That water is amazing! Great colors too, as always. I love it!
The flow of the animation is absolutely wonderful! Lovely job!
Damn! Truly remarkable. I have no idea how this was put together in a week, and I have to echo what has already been said about the smoothness of the animation and how surprising it is that this is only 16 colours.
Sometimes I wonder why I care about color restrictions and then someone posts something as amazing as this and I remember how much I have to learn about color. It's so fitting that this is a ship in a bottle, on many levels. TL;DR - I like it.
Ok, so in music this is called polymetre.
The animation has 60 frames, and within it, the drop of water has 1 cycle, the boat and the waves have 4 cycles (15 frames each), the left mine has 5 cycles (12 frames each), the right mine has 3 cycles (20 frames each), and same is the rightmost seaweed, the center smallest seaweed has 6 cycles (10 frames each).
Counting and arranging it all makes a challenge itself.
Can't even begin with how it is pixelled...
This is such a smooth animation. Wow
This is mindblowing in so many ways...
Exquisite entry. A storm in a bottle, so to speak!
16 colours!? I would have guessed twice that much. And those animations are so smooth. A real joy to look at :D
Wow! We know who the winner is...
