"Failed ignitions from a gaz lighter looks like wizardery"

Created for the "Pixel Art Challenge: A Different Perspective" before realizing it was a no animation challenge T-T . ( i'll read better next time )

I've decided to add to the hand crafted 96 frames a few compositing FX to brings more life into the animation. I know you PJers may concider so as corrupted pixels so here is the clean feed anim , I let you choose if i was a wise addition or a cheesy FX =)

Inspire by slow motion / macro videos of lighters.
 

Update : I've corrected the hand and some high lights regarding CELS and  ParkerBabyDiaperCompany's comments.

Compositing is just a nice wrapping paper. I'm glad you likes what s in it  !

I didn't submit a frame cuz i think each frames of an animation is part of a sub-part.
On the opposite an image is supposes to be a snapshot in time, suggesting the past/futur.
I guess it would feel wrong submiting a lonely frame and promote it as a piece of his own.
But thanks for you kind words.

If I could only favourite this twice!!!


user
Coconutsales (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/28/2015 17:54

Why not submit a still frame into the challenge? Each and every frame is beautiful on its own - truly a masterpiece!


user

I remembered Ratatouille right away when I saw it.
Really love those effects, whole lotta stuff to learn from it.
Also, thanks for the link to that channel!

Mandril> Wow , huge compliment here =) i'm touched  !
Michel Gagné had a strong influence on my FXs,  I love his work on Ratatouille .

If Disney made pixel art, it would look like this!

Unbelievable... Shocking


user
Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/25/2015 11:42

Paddy> ha yeah, making those out of iso noise effect could also simply feels like bad compressions. I think my low values are too close, on badd calibartion screen it should feel like pure black . Also it could feel VERY noisy on hight gammut screen...
So do you vote for the noise or not ? =)
 


user
Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/25/2015 11:40

CELS> Thanks for those kind words ! I'll follow your advices and add some more rim lights on the climax ( thumb, back hand and lighter).


user
cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/25/2015 11:39

I could watch this for hours


user
Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/25/2015 11:38

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany> Ho mate, you're right, it's not a finger, it's only the back part of the hand. When your the head on something sometimes you don't see anything anymore.
Thanks for pointing that, I'll correct it  !
 


user
ZudZement (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/25/2015 11:22

Wow! This has to be greatest animation I have seen in a long time. Awesome stuff.


user
CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/25/2015 10:58

This is the first time in a long while that my jaw literally dropped when I saw a piece here on PJ. I guess my only criticism is that I wish the lighter and thumb were a bit brighter at the climax, and the index finger also looks a bit too much like a flattened sphere, and doesn't read like a finger. Never the less, this is extremely impressive. Faved.


user
Zeenix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/25/2015 10:19

Well done! Really smooth animation and the sparks look really good.


user
ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 6/25/2015 09:14

I didn't know what I was looking at until I read the description. I assume it is a thumb and forefinger. That both fingers have that stationary 'lightsource' dithering pattern is odd; it should change dramatically when the actual lighter lightsource ignits. But even in movement it just looks like a ball moving up and down with dithered painting on it.

Nice animation, though.


user
elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/25/2015 08:53

wow that's nice.


user
Paddy (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/25/2015 08:52

I was about to say that the image appears to get noisy in some frames and that you should fix it because it mightve compressed weird but nope, that was all manual. Your animations never cease to amaze me
