Manage to kill a couple of weekends to animate piece I made for a different purpose and which has been left without one.=) Some flaws most likely, but I've reached my fun limits on this.

Since originally it was meant to be on the white, please exuse white bg, it stuck to it pretty well with aa.

About speed - I've been using FF for so long i forgot there are others. 1mb gif WILL slow down in some browsers due to specific compression method in gif format. Also IE wasn't able to read delays less then 0.1 sec when we met last time, don't know how it treating it now. Probably assembling it in flash would be a better idea for cross browsing issue.

Got fixed a few things for better or worse in this gif

I can't stop marvelling over the animation for 15 minutes now.. so insane work.

redscorp (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 2/8/2009 07:36
I did already told you, but i'll do in again: It's amaizing! Pure birdy... :(

Thanks, guys.=)

Leath (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/2/2009 05:00
Once again you out did yourself. This one must be the best pixel art i have ever seen. I kept starring at it for ages, really amazing.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/26/2009 15:37
W.O.W, and I don't mean the mmorpg game :)

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/25/2009 09:09
Absolute – wow.

Egt Smartie (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/25/2009 03:21
The animation of the Bird is so good! Well, everything is good, but I love the bird!

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/24/2009 22:52
I really love the expression on the boy's face! Well, I love the whole piece, but that just stands out to me ;D

IanPhillips (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/24/2009 20:42
That is totally awesome!!!

YOYOGiGi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/24/2009 09:18
3xG = Good Skill, Good Anim, Great Work ^_^

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/23/2009 09:20
That's a nice scene you animated there! You haven't posted an animation on here for quite awhile, so it's nice to see something like this again:)

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/22/2009 14:31
I know you said you have "reached your fun limits" on this but since I can't seem to stop staring at it I did notice one other teensy-tiny little "glitch" perhaps...

The lowest sail (in front of the pump thing); the ending of the spar (the side towards the middle of the screen), when it reaches its lowest point it appears to just leap back/disappear for a frame or two.  Again just nit-picky on my part but I figure it you were gonna go in and re-work the last thing I mentioned you might want to take a peak at this part too!

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/22/2009 13:26
Awesome piece. Did the King have a clue that once the Fool would rule ?

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/22/2009 02:18
I watched it at the corect speed only today, as IE does not play it properly ! And i'm even more amazed !! I think that your talent has no limit, Fool ! :)

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/22/2009 00:08
Are you a kind of god, or what? That's really a awesome work... I really admire you a lot, since long time ago.

Good work!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/21/2009 18:41
Guys, thanks a lot for inputs.=)

Haserhud, thank you but not really true =)

progZmax, thanks=) i'll fix it as soon as i get rid of the puking sensation from looking at it=)

Darth Mandarb, why should you be flamed? That is an opinion=) Honestly, it is just not enough frames to make a decent loop ,  simply too fast. I think i'll get it into flash and increase frame rate. Let see if it will help.

Doppleganger, and i thought I got away with it.=D that sail have to be redrawn at the different angle, otherwise rope interfere with a dowel  and makes an eye sore.

alkaline (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/21/2009 16:16
your animations work so well. even things as small as feathers falling have been managed to somehow work seamlessly, and very ingeniously too. nicely done

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/21/2009 16:01
That's utterly amazing, but I would like to know how the sail that is beneath the patchwork sail is staying erect in the air like that.  It looks to me like that dowel is not attached to anything and is just kind of suspended in the air.

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/21/2009 14:36
The great thing about this is the animation, I can't really put my finger on it, but it doesn't keep the same standard as you previous work. It's still awesome tho!

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/21/2009 07:39
I'll probably get flamed for this ... but I don't like the bird's animation!  The rest of the piece (only 32 frames) repeats wonderfully and feels almost non-repetitive.  But the bird is very noticeably repetitive and takes just a bit away from the animation (for me).  Let me rephrase, it's lovely, just repetitive!

Also, the main sail (with the patchwork) on the full "down" frame(s) for the shadow the flower patterned panel on the bottom left... the flowers appear to jump a bit when the shadow gets to the bottom most point.  It's not terrible ... just caught my eye!

Other than that I can't stop staring at this thing!  Great animation!

oh and by the way... LOVE that bed's headboard thing at the stern ... great addition!

006 (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/21/2009 03:47
What are your secrets? Stunning once again. Love all of your animations.

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/21/2009 00:18

This looks a milllion times better when watched at correct speed.

IE sucks at displaying this, Firefox does a good job.

Also, saving it and watching it in an image viewer program a la acdsee or irfan does the trick.

ProgZmax (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/20/2009 23:29
As someone who favors animation to artwork, I think you've done a brilliant job here with 32 frames.  A couple of things that seem a bit odd to me:

Between frames 5-6 and 25-26 there's weird pixel substitutions around the boy's arm and the wheel that seem out of place.  In frame 26 especially it looks strange because part of the cuff of his shirt just disappears without any visible explanation.

I only pointed this out because I loaded up your animation when these things stood out to me while watching the animation cycle, and they drew my attention away from what is otherwise a brilliant piece of work.

Bravo, really.

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 1/20/2009 18:06
Hehe, people here are always so impressed by your work, Fool. Well, so am I, I just think it's good to be able to identify why. Of course your style has a lot of charm, but really I think the thing that leads people to say you're insanely good is simply good draftsmanship -- putting a sufficient amount of work into the design stage. So, more than anything else I am impressed by your discipline.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 1/20/2009 15:58
why don't we just go ahead and give you the "insane pixelartist" award and stop giving you so many monthly tops =P great stuff...

bugman (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/20/2009 15:56
Ha ha, that is awesome!

vierbit (Level 2 Recycling) @ 1/20/2009 15:52
Wow, never noticed this before. The slightly wacky animation reminds me a bit of the
metal slug games.
The pathetic bird is the highlight for me.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/20/2009 14:29
Funny :D   

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 1/20/2009 13:50
Yup... I was right. Straight to place #1 :p

Not that it doesn't deserve it, as always.

Haserhud (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/20/2009 11:01
You really do have an incredible gift for pixeling.  As usual, virtually every other artist on here pales in comparison.  You are on a whole other level here, and I have yet to see anyone else match you.

Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/20/2009 10:37
This is totally insane, Fool.
#1 January for sure!

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 1/20/2009 10:32
That patched sail is gorgeous my friend!!!

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/20/2009 09:53

GuiZ (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/20/2009 09:15

ohnoimnaked (Level 2 Peon) @ 1/20/2009 09:06
This is amazing! The animation, the design, the characters, it's all top-notch! It's really magical : ]
