My submission to the Weekly Challenge. I hope you recognise them ;)
The style is intentionally simplistic and wobbly.
I wanted this to be animated and run at 60 fps... So if anybody can help me out that'll be very kind :)

 Pretty cool somehow; the animation is interesting and I like the simple shading technique.

The reason why it runs at the same speed is because it lasts 1/100th of a second. You can't make it faster in iaza.
I just noticed that the animation ran well between 45 and 60 fps when looking at a preview in GM, so I was just wondering.
I used Unfreez and for this.

Not sure if browsers will do it. Flash objects will run faster than a GIF, both are normally displayed in browsers. Flash's current version has a 120 FPS setting. I checked, and in FF this animation runs at the same speed. Does your program have a "no delay" option for the frame timing? I know Photoshop does.

I do not recognize them, but it still functions as an independent piece.  It feels like lightning light or some strange electric game the two statues are playing, and sets a very nice mood.

Okay! You do see now why I wanted a high frame rate ;)
Do you think it's possible to make it run at 45 frames per second?

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/10/2009 22:06

That's better. Why not make the bg flash, too? At least fix the awkward pause in the color flashing, I think it should be fluidly continuous.

The animation was psychedelic in some way. I've put it up.
The alternative frame rate would be 45 fps, but I don't think that's possible.
I've also posted the refs ;)

I really like the ones in the preview

I actually kind of like em.

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/9/2009 14:04

Are they made after Star Wars chars? 60 FPS is impossible in a browser. They simply won't do it. One tidbit of interest is that FF renders animated GIF's faster than IE, jsyk.

So far, there's nothing remotely psychedelic about them. Just do a haftone blur (like old mossimo sceen-print shirts) animated effect with maybe a zooming warp tunnel in bg.

I see horns on the green moai. Hmh ;|
what makes you think of dogs are the ears...
