I tried to mimmic Fool's style here. I am not sure if I got the colouring well, but I like the resulting piece nonetheless.
One of my best animations so far, surely.

LOL! Is he smoking?

awesome detail o_o must have been a pain to animate xD

Thanks for the comments everyone!.
And the thing the dragon is holding is supposed to be a mug of murky coffee-ish thing.

The detail and the fluidity is mesmerising. Truly impressive.

I wonder though, what is that little pink thing in his front hand, and what keeps falling out?

thats a pretty awesome dragon!! i agree with all the commentary about the unique style... what's the dragon holding?

 it still looks really good, and has great animation

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/4/2007 08:05
Great job on animation.
Fool has a very specific way of using colors, and so do you. You tend to use a lot of black, and Fool uses almost none.Quite an impressive effort none the less. 5/5

Necky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/3/2007 12:39
It may not be exactly like Fools style, but its a darn nice piece of work none the less. Good job dude!

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 4/3/2007 08:34
You did good with the animation but... Fool is impossible to copy. Sorry to say that.

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/1/2007 16:54

honestly, this doesnt even remind me of fool.  as you mentioned before, the overuse of black, and the "swish" frame (for lack of better word) where his wings become blured, are not something that you would see in fools work. 

please though, dont minenturprate this.  this is probably one of your best pieces so far, and i love this clean polished style you have going now.  as perciv@l said, i just dont think that this is 'fool style'

Animmaniac (Level 4 Murderer) @ 4/1/2007 11:00
To be honest I think you failed terribly at imitating Fool's style. What you have is a cleaner and more polished version of your own style, something that I was willing to see more often from you.

Besides that, great pixels!

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 4/1/2007 09:00

LOL okay I honestly don't think it looks 100% like Fool's style


I think what we have is actually a super combination of styles. Frankie's wildly creative style and character design with an addition of Fool's crisp n clean pixeling - that's beautiful.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/1/2007 07:48
That's awesome!=)
Alhough you've developed it in your own style, it looks really terrific .=)

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/1/2007 07:26
It doesn't look like Fool's animation to me but I think it's just brilliant!

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/1/2007 07:13
Wow, really amazing!

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 4/1/2007 07:07
the best entries come at the end. beautiful work. :D

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/1/2007 07:00
whether you nailed fool or not, who cares... this piece is the balls! the fact that you constantly finish pieces of this size with detail and animation in less than a week completely amazes me.  nice work!

Famous animation! I dont like the colours soo mutch but that doesnt matter;)

9_6 (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/1/2007 06:14
It looks really nice but -in addition to what Varock Shade and you mentioned- I've never seen fool using that kind of sylized motionblur you have going on in that animation.

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 4/1/2007 01:05
Yeah as I said, my colouring is a bit off, I might work on it some more before the deadline.
I dont think the problem is in the hue differences as much as in the contrast level, I got large masses of nearly black colour everywhere, while Fool barely uses black.
(my over-use of black is something I really should work on, every single crack seems deep and over-accentuated, so my whole pieces seem flatter because of it)

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/1/2007 00:34
It looks great, although I thought the challenge was more about *Think style, technique and artistic sensibility.* This and This pixel show his style is a bit different. your scales are quite round, the ones on his dragon are not. Also, If you look at his other pixels, most colours are a bit closer to each other with the hue, and almost all the colours he uses for his main characters are quite warm colours, and your blue-purple-ish and red are not very close to that. Looks very nice, but I'm not sure if the mods will allow it in the challenge...

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 4/1/2007 00:11
Of all the entries I have seen so far, this is my favorite. Good luck, I hope you win!
