This is great!

Worriedcat (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/24/2015 07:15

Dude, the colors, the colors man<3

Aces (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/17/2014 12:56

Nice work! Could you teach me how to combing different animation together in one? (just like yours, I can make moving red car, moving blue car, and a moving background in Photoshop, but I don't know how to combine them together as a gif)

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/17/2014 06:04

you deserved this. nice job.

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/15/2014 03:35

 do you even know what report to admin is for, not complaining its for violating the rules. the reason i think your stuff is stupid is you have the pixel skills to be rewarded for this simple tile stuff but you dont try nothing else. you wanna act like a real gift to the world taking the attention of all challenges and winning them. its bad sportsmanship imo. 

Mosst (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 11/13/2014 00:01

Reminds me of wario land four intro with the car.

This piece is BOSS!!! Like ALL of your works!!! You, are one of my favorite pixel artist of late hands down around here.

I... LOVE... you!!!

Ignore the Trolls Mr. T.!!! A simple look at their gallery usually will sum it up at a glance.

Now go back to being #1 (weelky challenge champion) around here!!!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/11/2014 15:20

While I appreciate the time you took to comment on my work, I fail to see how this is in any way constructive criticism.

I don't care at all whether you like me or not; on the other hand, calling my work "stupid" is an outright insult, and I'd advise against using similar comments in the future.

If you have any further problems with me or my work, feel free to report it to the administrators via the proper form on the right side of this page.

MotorRoach (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/10/2014 17:26

I love the choice of colors.

vimmel (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/10/2014 15:01

Great work man! looks awesome! :)

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/10/2014 10:33

your stuff is mostly basic tile-work that anyone with good pixelation skill can match. yet you are like the most praised active pj user and win every contest with stupid submissions like this. i dont like you.

Sergiotron (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/10/2014 02:57

so awesome!

Arkan85 (Level 9 Rear Admiral) @ 11/10/2014 01:56

Great work, as always!

Lindion45 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 11/9/2014 06:12

This is so amazing, it's like it's 3D - the shadows are done so well!

TheKasparrr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 11/8/2014 13:24

I just can't have enough of looking at this. Your style is unique. :)

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/8/2014 03:11

quite nice anim and design

simple but fun

RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/7/2014 00:08

drivin' me nuts, fast and furious.

Harrisonk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/6/2014 14:37

Mrmo have my children please <3

ZudZement (Level 5 Captain) @ 11/6/2014 12:43

The colors are pretty much perfect. That metal girder gives a nice touch of depth to the animation. Cheers!

Papermoon (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/6/2014 06:39

oh my gosh that looks so nice ^^

albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/6/2014 01:27

Man, this is quite good, congrats!

Volrak_Rutra (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/5/2014 15:30

you just want all the trophies, don't you? i dare you to participate in this challenge 3 times to see if you could place 3 times))

I like this, but I feel there's no dynamic here, blue is in the lead, red follows. if there was some intrigue, passing, cutting off, maybe dirty tricks, it would make this piece superfantastic.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 11/5/2014 14:08

That looks super nice, good work! Amazing how the metal bar in the foreground gives so much depth to the whole animation.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 11/5/2014 14:06

Much better.

You rock!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/5/2014 13:02
 I'm (ab)using the "spare screen" functionality in Grafx2, using tiled backgrounds that wrap around seamlessly, and placing the stuff on top of the background manually. Also using the grid functionality to calculate and move stuff around more precisely. After that, it's only the matter of setting the framerate so that it looks alright!

That's why there was that error with the metal bar thing, I misplaced it and had to clean it up later :)

After the basic animation is done, I can add more details on top of that (like the exhaust smoke, for example).

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 11/5/2014 12:38

what's your process when making a simple parallax effect like this? I feel like if I would try something similar it would take me forever and still wouldn't look as clean. 

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) @ 11/5/2014 10:58

Love it!

atprises (Level 6 Commander) @ 11/5/2014 09:41
These are so cool! So happy to see you doing animations 

I'd only recommend to make the cones of light move down 1px when the car is in lower position. The car isn't static so it's lights aren't static as well)

failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 11/5/2014 09:03

turquoise car has a spolier.  duh. 

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/5/2014 08:31

Fixed, thanks!

(at least I hope I fixed it properly :D )

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/5/2014 08:04

Great work!

One small thing: When the metal bar that crosses the road is about to exit the viewport the smaller horizontal bars pop up one step upwards.

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/5/2014 07:56

This looks sooo cool dude!

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 11/5/2014 07:25

Nice! Missed opportunity for exhaust puffs though :D

arth (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/5/2014 07:16

The parallaxing metal structure passing by, damn!

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 11/5/2014 07:02

Haha, red onez go fasta!

Absolutely gorgeous piece, especially the colours you've picked for the shadows! The animation looks very fluid, and the texture of the road is superb. I also like the little smoke puffs that are coming out of the exhausts, a pretty cool detail.

My only small complaint is that I think that the cones of light shouldn't be static.

Lux_pp (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 11/5/2014 05:33

This is really nice stuff, but the headlights really flatten the animation and ruin the illusion. They should be more of a conical shape emanating from the level of the car, rather than a flat overlay on the ground.

Ubisavis (Level 6 Made) @ 11/5/2014 05:26

awesome :D
