So very, very true :)

I did mention that I am the worst off for even responding, yes? Trolls don't usually rile me up like that. I haven't been baited like this since 2001-02

No offense or anything, but you were more of a dick then him there. :[

Hey Theguy,

Congratulations! You seem to have trolled on just the right day to get my attention, and I will now attempt to engage your trolling even though rationally, I know there is no payoff to it.  I think I actually will take offense  to this, let me see if I can break down for you why I should:

1- You might want to rent Talladega Nights, which highlighted what every thinking person over the age of twelve already knows - that merely starting a statement with "No offense or anything but..." or "I don't mean to be rude but..." and "With all due respect..." does not cancel out the fact that whatever one follows those words with is going to be offensive. This tells me that you are either at or below the age of twelve, or you are a bit challenged upstairs.

2- Your comment is clearly a criticism, not a compliment. This in itself is not offensive, until one realizes that you do not offer up anything constructive that might improve on the work. It's possible that you know you have nothing constructive to offer, which leads to item three...

3- Minus the sword you made using reference that you did not site in the description of the piece, your pixel work is inconsistent and generally very weak. Dithering the crap out of something does not make a bad drawing better.  There are a dozen or two artists here that could come in with what you said, and have the skills to make me cower in the corner silently while honing my skills, but as Nick Swardson would say, your shit's weak son, Shit's WEAK.

In closing, let me again congratulate you on winning this interaction, because just by my posting any reply at all, I have let you know that you were able to bait someone yet again. Since I have lost, let me further bury myself with a quick look at who's shlong is bigger.

You have 39 pieces for a total of 10 Faves.

I have 5 pieces for a total of 6 faves.

If I keep that pace up, by the time I reach 39 pieces I should have my faves in the high 40's.

Take your meds, theguy. With all due respect, you're a real pos without them.

no offence or anything, but this came second

Webus (Level 3 Stalker) @ 5/15/2008 14:45
Great, really looks like a video game, love the animation

Expand (Level 3 Stalker) @ 5/12/2008 02:04
Congratulations with second place. Nice job.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 5/11/2008 02:01
This looks great; I really like the style here - the idea od StiltBall made me laugh.

Pukeko (Level 2 Dealer) @ 5/7/2008 16:55
I think this is really cool! Would be pretty funny to watch or play!

drewgilbert (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/6/2008 08:09
Oh good, I thought that Metaru was being glib there, and didn't know how to respond. Personally I think it would be odd to loop it, though I suppose I could have made that last frame hold for a full minute. I think I will let this one go though, I hope to represent better for this week's challenge.

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 5/5/2008 23:23
I agree with Metaru here. Though I was waiting for something to happen for a while at the end of the animation. Somehow I'm still waiting for more. A nice entry though.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 5/5/2008 01:15
don't bother listening to them. the gradient and the lack of a loop are what make this perfect.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 5/4/2008 23:28
Looks like the animation isn't looped. Might want to fix that :)

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 5/4/2008 17:12
I dont have a tutorial link, so you can Jal or another admin. You can also try making a gradient with stripes...

drewgilbert (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/4/2008 16:40
Thanks Vertigo. I actually did try to do a dithered gradient, but it looked pretty bad. I am fairly novice in the PA dept, so i don't know if there are other tricks to achieve a gradient and still keep the 32 color limit. If anyone has thoughts on that I am happy to hear them.

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 5/4/2008 16:17
Very nice :P gradient background would look better tho :(
