He's the best at what he does. And what he does ain't so nice...

No, but really, butterfly watching is a manly sport. Don't judge...

Been working on this one off and on. Amazing how so much animating can be done, yet it only comes out to a couple of seconds in real time. I may draw a quick and simple sky or not-so-detailed mountain in the back ground, as it seems to be lacking there...but for now, I'm too tired to continue this.

Fantastic animation is fantastic! Man!

AtskaHeart (Level 7 Colonel) @ 1/24/2013 08:57

 Animation is awesome

DragonDePlatino (Level 5 Detective) @ 9/29/2012 08:40

Absolutely amazng animation! I don't think I'll ever get this good in my life. -_- Really brought a smile to my face with the subtle facial expressions though!

jessicauglypug (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/10/2012 23:05

 hehe, verry cute and i really thought it was good.

beevance (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/3/2012 16:58

 HAhaha nice!


philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/6/2012 12:46

 I think colors could be better.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/18/2012 05:44

 Hey BOB, do you do any NPA animation? Those tend to be less time consuming and relatively easier to do, and if you're this awesome with pixels I'd love to see what you can do in other mediums.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/21/2012 17:46

 hehe awesome =)

greenraven (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/20/2012 21:05

That is priceless, my hat's off to you sir!

Abiotik (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/20/2012 12:10

The animation is just perfect!

Qbi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/19/2012 03:01

All i got to say is that you are crazy man!!! :D

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 2/17/2012 22:51

@TheInquisitor: It took a while. Every day I'd come home from work, I'd work on the animation for about an hour or two during the work days(5 days out of the week). On my two days off, I'd give it a little more love, about 4-6 hours or so. All this over the course of about 2 months, or so. Very time consuming, and not for the socially active, I'll admit. However, if you're a hermit like myself, than have it!

AfroMonkey (Level 2 Dealer) @ 2/17/2012 22:22

I honestly could not hold my laughter in at the end. The smoothness of the animation, the awesome-ness and the cuteness factor are all through the roof. Kudos my man, kudos.

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/17/2012 14:33

I must also ask how long this take you. I know you say "on and off", but can you put a rough hour/day estimate on it? I'm doing some attempted animation (non-pixel) myself at the moment, but something like this I fear would take years!

ceddo (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/17/2012 08:42

 Excellent animation the B.O.B, you brightened up my day :)

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 2/15/2012 23:29

Aww, so many old faces posting here. Warms my heart to hear from some of you guys again. Thanks for the warm comments.

@UI, Helm: I agree wholeheartedly that I should be moving away from the Intellectual Property of others, or pre-existing characters/art. However, this was done primarily out of fun, to just hone in on animating what I may have lost over the past couple of months. What started as a doodle, turned into a small loop, and then grew into this. In the future, I do plan to submit more stuff from my own imagination, which may or may not be to the chagrin of the folks who view it. : )

@TheInquisitor: I did do some animating professionally for WayForward, but that was about a year ago. Thanks for the kind words, friend.

@TheElk: Thankies, sir!

@Stoven: humbled to hear praise from you, as always.

@Cyanqmou: the shadows in the crouch were supposed be like those dramatic poses you see in anime-type cartoons where a character has that look before the pounce off screen...or something. I didn't quite get it right unfortunately. It was good practice, though.

To everyone else that commented, again thanks. Whether the comments are back-patting, or constructive, I still appreciate them equally. This old family...I tell ya'... : )

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/15/2012 18:13

 the animation is soooooo smooth!!!...epic.... but the only critic i have is that  you should do something with one of your characters, would be even better! :D...

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/15/2012 11:11

I really really appreciate how good this is. Do you do animation professionally?

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/15/2012 00:48

 This is a really well-done animation. I hope you make more art. If you don't mind me saying without using established IP.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/14/2012 09:30

 hey bob good to see youre alive :P


nice animation!!

Muiriled (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/14/2012 06:58

 Just amazing man.

st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 2/13/2012 20:24

animation's beautiful. this looks like you had a lot of fun doing it. it feels like it shows that in the final quality of the subtle stuff. the kawai transition in the end is awesome i love all the character youve given him. animation takes forever so i can appreciate this peice a lot.

Sylon (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/13/2012 20:04

Hahaha wow, great!!  Love this!  I'm thinkin'...the only thing this needs is...SOUND!!

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/13/2012 13:42

 Fabulous and unexpected.

takikazama (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/13/2012 11:49

I love the details in the animation, like when he cuts the falling leaf in half : ))) And sure some backrgound could make this piece even better.

Well done!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/13/2012 11:35

During the animation I had to increase the rating I gave it a couple of times!

Flonkon (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 2/13/2012 09:14

 This animation is genious...

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 2/13/2012 06:55

This is crazy.  Great animation.  It's got a real Disney feel to it.

Lacaio123 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/13/2012 06:43

WoW ^^ Very Nice

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 2/13/2012 05:36

and thats mama BOB for you.

ellie-is (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/13/2012 05:30

 Man, you're the best.

Aastikya (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/13/2012 05:03

 This is outstanding! I wish I could pixel something like that.

Argyle (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/13/2012 03:39

 BOB, your pieces have made me laugh every time. Fantastic animation; the movements, transitions and transformations, and your timing are very well handled. I want a pet doey-eyed version to keep in my pocket.

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/13/2012 03:34

Pure greatness!

Cyangmou (Level 8 Marshal) @ 2/13/2012 03:30

perfect animation, great expression.

if you draw a background don't use more than one color more, it doesn't hurt that it's empty.

the only thing which I don't really understand is why his arm is casted in shadow if he touches the ground.

ECPixel (Level 8 Marshal) @ 2/13/2012 03:05

Man u pixel psycho!

Gecimen (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/13/2012 02:52

Right before valentine's day, good timing :)

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/13/2012 02:30

 hah, great animation. has a lotta character to it

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 2/13/2012 02:25

LOOL awesome 

wiggles (Level 1 Private) @ 2/13/2012 02:01

Im seriously dropping to my knees in amazement. !i!Wow!i!

Inle (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/13/2012 02:00

Great job!

8BitBeard (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/13/2012 01:59

that is one long and awesome animation. Really, really well done - I especially like how you did not shy away from animating the WHOLE body instead of moving separated parts (the "usual" technique for doing it the cheap way)
