So, I posted a explosion a while-back, and honestly, it was pretty bad. It was my first attempt, but I got really lazy right at the end. Although it looked ok in-game, it just wasn't to my standards. Because of this, I added a ton more frames and removed bits that didn't really work.
As people has pointed, I'm using a ton of other references, purely because this was my first attempt! :)

Kudos to this reference most of all! http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/79055.htm

Thanks man! Most appreciated! The animation is growing on me. I realised I would have needed to slow down the animation to get the smoke effects working the way I wanted, and I didn't want to do that!


Thanks bro! The last few frames could always do with some work. But I'm super pleased with the improved version of this. Very happy!

Nice explosion. I actually like those explosive liquid remnants, they add a great feel to the explosion in terms of timing!

This is great, although the last smoke remnants look a bit too much like liquid drops in my eyes.

Done and done! I want to re-do this but with no heavy referencing this time around. I assure no frames were copied/pasted/manipulated! All was created from ground up! :)

If you're using references you'd better put a link to them in the description.
