I wanted to try and animate something small as well as to investigate scrolling backgrounds. SketchGirl is 32x32 and DoodleDog is 16x16 placed on a 64x64 background. I've had trouble with the scrolling as the colours kept on messing up with glitches popping up here and there. I think I've managed to clean up all the frames so it should be around 21 colours.

I may do another one of these but using different software (Amiga) to keep it glitch free and with the colours in check.

(The preview pic has less colours so I could use it as my avatar)

 HOw do you feel about people stealing your artwork? I belong toa gaming site and have just discovered in the last couple days, that all name icons they have available for members, and other dividers/bullets they use, have been taken without the artists permission. A lot of stuff was taken from members at DeviantArt, some of them have been contacted and notified regarding this. If I knew how to attach a link, I would as they are using your SketchGirl and DoodleDog as a name icon. It is at www. The owner, Mary approves all name icons/goldies used on the site.

Man the hair flows so perfect, you rock at animation man, same with the bandanna in your Anti-2D piece, it's so fluid and actually has LIFE! Great work!

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 7/14/2007 04:24
you sir, are one of my favorite animators here in PJ.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/11/2007 05:26

Thanks for the comments everyone!

With the walk I wanted a bit of attitude/character and not just do a normal cycle, so it was just a case of making the arms swinging in a different style.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/11/2007 03:19
Nice animation, girl has some character the way she walks=)

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 7/7/2007 02:25
Whoa, thats awesome! Great animation!!!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/7/2007 01:59
Wonderful little animation.. just the dog bounce alone made me smile. :p

Pukeko (Level 2 Dealer) @ 7/6/2007 15:19
Dude, you're just awesome! The attitude of the girl walking, and that cute dog... they're so well done!

zeid (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/6/2007 10:40
The colours are the only thing i don't like. Beautiful in every other respect.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/6/2007 08:26
Just fantastic. Your sense for animation is among the top of all the PJ members.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/6/2007 04:50
Wonderfully animated, esp the dog!

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/6/2007 04:49
hey this awesome animation...

rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/6/2007 04:41
Haha, I understand. Adding to the score since I forgot you were using a shitty program, heh.

Keep the great animations coming.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/6/2007 04:32

Believe me...I wanted to do all those things !!! But with the colour issues and glitch problems I thought it would be best to do another scene on a different package as I ended up wrestling too much with the peice rather than enjoying it. (Plus I'm preparing to go back to the UK early next best to keep it simple for now)


rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/6/2007 04:27
Ha, I like it, sweet li'l anim.

Maybe the clouds could move a bit, because that's how parallax works.

And add more things to the foreground! Fire hydrant, a sitting cat, etc.

This could be more enjoyable with variety.:)
