 haha, great.  the animation could be a bit more dynamic on the body, the animation on the fins is a bit too evenly paced.  otherwise it's a great piece!

Anyone remember that scene in Breath of Fire IV where you have to go meet the flying dragon that resembles a whale on your hot air balloon? wow, this brings back memories xD

 

Best RPG ever, btw ~ <3 BoF4.

 wow wow he is just motoring along isnt he, omg I think I'd be airsick, the way the basket is bobbing up and down too XD

 

Nice colors and overall idea!

Thanks everybody :D

Well, some of you must be right about the lack of motion, but I got lazy. I'll probably update this later.

iLKke : Imo the lack of aa on the whale isn't disturbing because it's a solid object, whereas I aaed the clouds to make them as smooth as possible. I'll try to put fins and tails out of synchro.

Ui_ : an attached basket would be much less funny I think :)

Badassbill : "lulz" animation ? You mean it's kinda ridiculous isn't it ? Well I think you're a bit harsh on me, but ya maybe...

Kinda...hypnotic...and randomly syching with Vitas' Opera 2, adding an extra level of strange.

I love it!

 ! Try listening "Fat Boy Slim - Right Here Right Now" to this piece. :3

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/10/2010 14:59

Very nice.

The only thing I would change about the animation is to put fins and tail out of sync. While the the fins press down, the tail should be up, and vice versa.

Also top of the whale is not AAed, but I guess you couldn't be bothered.

heh i actually like the fact that the body bulk doesnt move very much (the perimeter shuffles just enough to denote some fluidity of motion even though theres no motion). really fun piece!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/8/2010 00:35

So lovely and original. Deserves a win!

I agree the body is somewhat disturbingly rigid.


user
cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/7/2010 21:50

Despite public opinion I kinda like the animation.


user
Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 5/7/2010 15:52

The actual art is beautiful, but the "lulz" animation is holding it back, rather than adding to it.


user
Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/7/2010 13:03

A little more motion on the spine would look better. Or maybe even straightening it out.


user
Green_Hell (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/7/2010 12:53

Lovely. I like the flow of the clouds.

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/7/2010 11:52

Really Nice Idea

Best One For This week i am Votinnnggg For The whale and MAybe i Can Get Ride On It Later

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/7/2010 11:51

 agree with onek :D.

I like the Whale a looot... you could put the basket as his necklace, so it dont jump that much and feels more confortable ride! :D... the whales usually are not that fast! XDD.

Great use of those blues! The pixelling looks great. I'm not a big fan of the animation, though, only because your whale doesn't move much like a whale. This would be so much cooler if it was "swimming" through the sky. The whole body should move. But like I said, the pixel work is great. I love the droopy eyelid!

Wow, now that's how to use a limited palette.


user
Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/7/2010 06:16

Elk : haha you're so clever, actually the windfish was my initial idea !

Onek : thanks. Ya it's kinda fast but it would be very long to calculate the frames length again to obtain a cycle, so I rest on that.

DawnBringer : thanks :)


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 5/7/2010 05:59

Nice & Clean. But I get motionsickness from just looking at that bopping basket!


user
Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/7/2010 05:57

the windfish!


user
onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/7/2010 05:00

the whale look nice....

i think u should make the scrolling much slower, to get the smooth feel of a ballon ride
