This is an attack animation of the pirahna plant version that I drew earlier. I know that the bland background looks crappy, but I couldn't find anything that supported a transparent background for animations (would be very pleased if any one could guide me to one though. And iaza.com doesn't support transparent colors for anim. gifs so...yeah). All frames done in MSpaint, and I used image ready photoshop to animate them.( does image ready photoshop have some type of transparency option on it?)

 I mainly did it because everybody liked it the most out of all my redid mario baddies. Well, here she blows, with her lucious lil lips. If enough people like, I may just add an idle animation, and fireball animation to it also. But seriously, people, I'm only one boy...

Tell me wachtya' think: is it groovy, or have I once again screwed up another animation?

i would love to play a mario remake with this kind of sprites.

ultima (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/27/2007 07:07
looks like the chrash bandicoot plant but still very awsome

Shinamon (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/28/2007 17:07
↔ This is going to sound very primitive, but you could use a transparent background for each frame, then animate them in a simple free animator such as Unfreez. I would think that would be the most simple way to have a transparent animation, as far as I know.

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/24/2007 06:22
Hahaha! Cool style.

rockybolan (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/7/2007 19:38
I think the animation is fine, if not excellent. 

AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/24/2007 17:27
Love It! It looks like one of them flowers from Mario!

It's great I love the animation

Beeblebrox (Level 5 Captain) @ 12/1/2006 08:59
I guess I should have read the description first. Awesome job.

Beeblebrox (Level 5 Captain) @ 12/1/2006 08:58
Amazing! you may not have meant to but it reminds me of the countless hours I spent playing Supre Mario Bros. on the original nes.

Arithmetician (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/30/2006 15:02
Amazing animation! (*_*)

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/26/2006 05:37
as i said on DA, great stuff.

BlackFang (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/28/2006 21:03

amazing man...

By the way, i use Gif Movie Gear on my animations, and its very simple to make the transparent backgroud, you can find it at www.superdownloads.com.br

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/23/2006 11:26
Oh my sweet jesus I love this. VERY retro like, and the animation is incredibly lively. I absolutely love your style, keep it up!

Mullet (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/22/2006 23:54
This is purely amazing. The animation is so...active! I mean it's hard to spot pixels that stay the same, or are even cheaply moved. Looking at how active it as and how many frames it is, I think you deserve major props. That's an insane animation man. I hope that you either have a job as an animator (or go to college to be one) as you have what it takes!

jkilla (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/17/2006 21:59
amazing animation fav!

Hotlead Junkie (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 5/22/2006 16:19
I could stare at this for hours

Transformer Guy (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/4/2006 20:39
Yikes! Hate to be bitten by that! Nice, and good color set. 5+/5 P.S. You should animate more, they're cool and would look great!

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/28/2006 11:40
This is what I'm talking about man! This rocks! It's awesome now! You deserve to be added to my favourites!! Hell yeah! BIGUP Supermario is toast if he meets this plant hahahahahahahahha!!!!

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/27/2006 18:22
Nice!  Looks many times better.  I still feel that she holds her mouth open a microsecond too long, but I'd say it's done.  Great work.  Thanks for taking the time to listen to our C+C and make edits!

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/27/2006 14:29


I just changed the animation a wee bit

1) I highlighted the plants lips throughout the frames so it doesn't look like they are changing colors as it moves

2) I gave it a wider mouth and horizontal chomping distance, so it can open it's mouth before it reaches its max horizontal peak.

Thats about it for now. The older animation is still in the preview box, so you can compare the two...tell me whatchya think peeps: better, worse, or wtf?...no matter the answer, I'm still willing to change it to please...

ice9 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/26/2006 06:20
It looks taken from Pink Floyd's The Wall movie, in the animated section with flowers eating each other. This is a super cool pixel art, i'm addin it to my favs. :)

Skit (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/26/2006 04:13
Another awesome Mario-related piece! +Fav

BlackEye (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/26/2006 00:39

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 4/25/2006 20:03

slay (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/25/2006 01:15
Great smooth stuff :)

Macks (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/23/2006 18:43
I love this. The little details add so much to this peice.

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/23/2006 11:42
just fucking amazing, make a game with these already.

DeathByChris (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/23/2006 01:19
though im using imageready 7.0, i was able to give it a transparency by selecting the green in the color table and then clicking the checkered box icon at the bottom of the window. above the image there should be tabs labeled "original, optimized, 2up, and 4up" click the optimized one to preview it if the BG shows up transparent then export optimized again this should work i did it in like 2 seconds.

leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/22/2006 21:51

hahaha Ryuria says it so well

+5 from me ;)

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 4/22/2006 12:29

lunarknight (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/22/2006 10:02
Wow man, really awesome. Easily a favourite.

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/22/2006 09:52
B.O.B I'm really sorry about my lame crit before. Actually I like this pic alot! But when I wrote my previous statement I was drunk and I couldn't see straight!  I know it's a lame excuse but it's actually true! My bad! Hehe! Here comes my real and only crit on this piece: I think he should open his mouth earlier.. right before he "stabs" with his head.. Maybe even as he loads up turning his head away. Because now it looks like a delayed reaction when he opens his mouth.. A little akward if you ask me! Otherwise it looks cool! Once again, sorry for my last crit!
