First pixels in months. That challenge was just too good to miss.

Any reminder of this subspecies of CAT may not be by pure chance.

I tried to make a parallax bg, but it was too distracting. A shame, because of the time it took to make.

15 frames. Colors not guaranteed, because of f***g macbook monitor. May be too slow for Chrome users, sorry. Also, 10k preview fail.

Update: colors checked and fixed. Not that bad really, only the bg and helmet yellow were too close: brightened bg.

AWWWWWwwww! Very cute helmet!

Thanks a lot guys'n gals! <3

It's a pain that colors suck, I really can't control them on the crappy monitor, and it's not the first time either. Nothing I can do about it until I get home - and then I won't have much time for pixels.

I also agree rocks would have made a cool scrolling bg, too bad I didn't think about it.

The animation of the tracks is... mesmerizing. Cool concept, great execution.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/26/2011 20:45

Favorite concept so far. Very clever!

This is really good way to incorporate to the headgear and smoke, well done

Rocking as always Manu!

what a lovely animation.  Personally, I like the subdued colours, but I figure ptoing and cure know what they're talking about moreso than I do. : P

EtNoir (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/26/2011 10:36

This has to be one of the best ideas for this challenge :D Nice work!

Bonhomme (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 6/26/2011 09:11

Nice animation. I agree with what ptoing said. Without rockson the ground, the cat seems to jump witjout reason. 

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/26/2011 08:59

yeah, scrolling rocks would be useful (and rocks flung by the tread would be cool). Agree that the piece overall feels rather light, still a winner though.

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 6/26/2011 08:57

This is my fave so far, content wise, but I feel that the colours could be better, there could be more contrast to the bg.

Also you could make some stones on the ground that move by to give a better sense of movement.
