So..I think we've all been in a similar situation at some point, with so many outstanding artists around the Internet. The idea is to take them as motivation rather than feeling completely impotent by their awesomness. Pretty hard.

This is for the challenge "Green with envy" (Depict somebody being jealous of someone/something)

Last scene (the rotten thing), is a joke used 2 times on Seto no Hanayome (and probably other places?). If you haven't yet, watch that anime, you'll pee your pants laughing. I mean it.

Good luck~

Edit: now the first scene lasts longer. Not sure if I'm gonna change the last background, though..can't come up with anything good and simple u.u

Edit2: Added a few transition flashes between each scene.

Thanks :)

As I said, that white thing would be a representation of how the guy feels after being shocked by the greatness of the other one..

I'm going back to my corner too, if you don't mind xD

I don't understand how that white thing with mushrooms works with the rest, but apart from that .. BRILLIANT IDEA. Love it.

Good idea :), definitely a well known problem, not just in pixel art!

U got my vote! Man u so true!

Franuka (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/20/2012 12:16

 Thanks :p

That thing is a representation of how the first guy feels after realizing how pathetic he is compared to the other one (the one in the account profile).



Good points. I may try to work a bit on the last background.
And yes, you're right about the first part too. Maybe I'll just add some more frames at the beginning showing that.

I don't get the supposed joke with that rotten thing. Not to mention that segment is out of place visually (the rest of the animation is textured, that part is flat).

I think it would be a good idea to have that part with the jowly bloke be displayed a little longer- it looks like the most detailed part of the sequence and yet it's the shortest.

 this is weird but good.

 Creative idea.
