That anim here took me about a week, working on and off...
Trying to start a new avatar fad of drawing your own face in a dozen or so weird themes and styles mayhaps! No need to animate now, the idea is just take your own face, and re-draw it in as many weird ways you can think of.

Theres quite a few styles/palettes in there... I had a lot of fun with it!
The whole thing has 64 colors.

(I might add some frames later on... if you have suggestions for what themes to use, go ahead!)

Jabberwock (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/5/2009 13:32

3D -zombie is just amazing! 

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/15/2008 10:48
Thats pretty epic,looving the randomness of it all.

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 5/29/2008 14:03
Frightening animation? What do you mean by frightening? Like, a scare? I don't know, I mean with just a single animated image and no other context, sound or anything, its hard to imagine how I could really "scare" anyone. Creeping or grossing out is pretty much the only thing single images or animations can do there...

WERKZEUG (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/11/2008 17:24
Man the animation on this is very well done. The following comment is just a suggestion; I noticed that all the themes within this work are "kinda-gross-and-scary-but-not-really"... I'd love to see you produce some truly frightening animation.

cerealkiller54 (Level 6 Made) @ 2/26/2008 21:20

Kills my brain cells.

*twitch* Seizures!!! *froth and another twitch*

psycore (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/5/2008 03:14
The zombie is the best part. btw you work fast...

Pokedude (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/11/2008 19:19
bloody fuck thats amazing!!

Club Beuker (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/9/2008 04:39
Unbelievable. Nice 3d-effect you got there with the zombie one.

Zero Power (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/9/2008 04:20
Hahah I love the afro zombie.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/8/2008 13:31
hail to the afro pixeler :D

mikl3 (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/8/2008 10:16
8/8 + fav

Delfos (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/8/2008 09:06

It's genius!!!! jajaja!!

I love it

Haze01 (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/8/2008 06:52
Very cool.  The rabid-looking one is my favorite, even though the nose moves oddly :)

Edit: Woah, I had no idea that the pixelplayer lets me see the individual frames of animation.  Pixeljoint really is an awesome place for pixel art.  I'm glad I read the comments on this page.

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/4/2008 13:55
Yeah I should have guessed that from the start about the pumpkin being the hardest. It makes sense that the shortest part of an animation was the hardest for an artist to get right.

True art man. Amazing piece 7/7

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/4/2008 07:39
Actually the zombie head turn was pretty easy to do... I just shifted parts of the face sideways, and then corrected the mess it makes and the shading. I made parts that stick out more shift a little more than the rest (like the tip of the nose for example), so it does that neat 3d effect... but really, it didnt take much more than like 30 minutes to animate that zombie. The longest part to animate was the pumpkin, it took more than an hour.

M.E. (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/3/2008 23:48
Watched this about 10 minutes!!!! Boy, I usually don't look
that long at a masterpiece in a museum :) 6 out of 6 + Fav!

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/3/2008 18:59
Love the 3D effect on the zombie did you plan that out?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/3/2008 15:36

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/3/2008 12:43
Personally the zombie one is my favorite.

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/3/2008 12:15
well I, at least, will be attempting this fad :P

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/3/2008 10:31
I love the effect it creates!Awesome!!

Mille (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 1/3/2008 03:33
Great. Most of them are very cool i like them a lot. The tree between the windy sepia one and the purple alien are fun, its a shame that we cant see them well in the animation...
The preview will kill some epileptic guys by the way.

Rare Cabbage (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/3/2008 03:29
Amazing animation. I liked the zombie one, it had a lot of depth which made it stick out more to me. Terrific job,

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/3/2008 03:10
Very very very impressive!!

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/3/2008 01:03
Not only is the animation worked through - the pixeling on each of the characters is amazing... and it all adds up to 64 colors! I havent been so impressed with a pixel piece for a loooong time!

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/3/2008 00:21
Heh, now this rocks! The zombie is probably the best; it's got a tone of depth to it.

Only thing I think you could mess with would be that odd fellow with the tubes coming out of him. The parts on his face seem to lack the depth all the other heads have.

Also, since our jaws are on a hinge, I think the skull's jaw should swing back instead of down.

But those are pretty minor qualms considering the top notice quality the rest has! :)

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/2/2008 21:11
Nice work, nice idea. I really like how 3 dimensional the green zombie animation looks.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/2/2008 20:22
You are such the wannabe.

DevonR (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/2/2008 19:47

If you want to create an avatar fad, make one that everyone is capable of

Your animating is beyond belief.

funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/2/2008 19:07
very very nice. 5/5.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 1/2/2008 18:53
the zombie head...

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/2/2008 18:52
man you did an amazing job with the 3d head just blows my mind that this kind of stuff can be done through pure pixel art! great job!

HMC (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/2/2008 18:48
That is insane.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/2/2008 18:31
Frankie, the pumpkin animation portion is effin' great. Not to mention, your animations are getting smoother as well! Pretty soon you'll be having to swat away all the big animation companies from your wing wong!

I wantz mo...

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/2/2008 18:18
Actually... speed it up.

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/2/2008 18:06
You can see the individual frames with the pixelplajer... though maybe ill end up slowing it down a bit.

leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/2/2008 17:47
see seeeee surt agrees - I told you everyone else is way too lazy to follow the fad XD  

This is still beyond awesome though.  But there's a chunk at the end that goes through toooo fast.  Slow it down so we can ogle

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) @ 1/2/2008 17:25
Holy shit.. best fad avatar ever.. O_o

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/2/2008 17:22
Wow that's just aboslutely great. I'm loving it.

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/2/2008 17:06
Pure FSS awesomecoolness.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/2/2008 16:50
Way too much work for a fad I'd think.
