- It doesn't matter.... Our circus has fired our only clown, and the man-on-plate-on-stick-on-ball-on-rope-ten-meters-high trick won't be done by itself.... Now MAKE ME LAUGH!

Well, that's what I came up with for the weekly challenge. Actually, I instantly saw a jester when I first glanced the bottom-right sprite....

.... And since I liked the experience of (attempting to) make my first animation, I gave it a second shot. Maybe I exaggerated on the number of elements that move here, so I couldn't give proper attention to all of them (and that's why I unfortunately mirrored the arms and balls [?]), but, although I found it veeery difficult to animate, it turned out smoother than I expected, except for the subject's legs, the rope and the little guy there (because I honestly just ran out of patience). Lots of hours of work anyway, it took me all my free time during the whole week. There's a lot to be improved, but I'm really sick of looking at this guy. And I totally forgot the transparency requirement, so I had to improvise. =p

I hope you like it! Critics really, really welcomed!

I wish I could have managed to do it on all the parts in time, but I'm so slow! =(

Thanks again guys!

You did a very good job with animating small movements with subtle AA colors.

nah, it was a long week and mine isn't half as good as this.  I know I sound like a loser but there are a ton of good entries.  Still, green ribbons are good, I agree.

Oh man, this is the last thing I wish people to say because of my work! :(

I'm not trying to convince you, but my personal thought nowadays is that winning awards is secondary. The real point for me is that I'm learning something new (or trying, at least), interacting with the community (even if it's in a "weak" way) and - most importantly - having fun! I have just as many green ribbons as you do, and I really don't feel like I'm skilled and dedicated enough to change this for now, but that's no reason for me to stop joining the challenges - on the contrary, I find those happy faces way cuter than numbers, haha.

But really, please, don't be discouraged because of me, that's exactly the opposite of my intentions! Train and ask for help if you think you need to, but have fun anyway!

EDIT:

Sorry if I sounded like a shoddy self-help book, haha

But if you think it's good enough to be on the gallery, just post it! =p
