Transparency - Required.
Animation - Required.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Yeah, I can join to Voltali, it doesn't look so good with the enlarged ones. But when we made the Misty-challenge I was one of the "c-c-combo breakers" with not drawing a full body sprite, so it's a bit unfortunate from me to say this. :I

Already 16 entries so early in the week!

I wish all the previews were x1 size though. I understand it's nice to gain readability among many entries, but it kinda dodges the purpose of having a TINY animation (and there's the zooming tool anyway), see my point?

A silly question - how to save animation with transparency?
Hey guys.

max amount of frames would be nice. Otherwise it may devolve to a competition of longest animation.

Is this a challenge I smell?

I might enter too.

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/25/2015 05:28

I might actually have to enter this one...

Hell yeah. This is my JAM!

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 5/25/2015 03:04

This challenge is hard enough for me.

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 5/25/2015 02:58

oh lawdy, as far out of my comfort zone as I think it could be hahaha

Nevercreature (Level 9 Whale Shark) @ 5/25/2015 02:56

I can see massive participation...

well im guessing the cooler the animation the better shot youll have at winning though.  Since this is so open with such a small canvas hopefully therell be alot of entries for this one.

Drazile (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 5/25/2015 01:37

Hey, wouldn't any animation mean you could do something stupid, like a blinking animation?

...not that I will...

Drazile (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 5/25/2015 00:51

This'll be...challenging...

Also, what Hapiel said.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 5/25/2015 00:47

Wonderful challenge, but I wish there was a max amount of frames.. :p
