Here's a pixel I made just in time for the holiday.  Sorry if the background is too plain, but I didn't know if I could make one in time.

Here's a rough WIP.

Happy Hallowe'en!

you're welcome.  Thanks for the great pixel art

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/13/2011 19:45

Thanks, I really appreciate it!  (sorry it took so long to get back, but the comments don't work on my mobile...)

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/21/2011 13:29

(sorry for accidental double post)

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/21/2011 13:29

Sure.  Sometimes I love just browsing through people's galleries.  I think how I found it was, I saw your contributions on that bot game, and I decided to view your gallery.  (Usually when I enter someone's gallery, I look at most if not all of their pieces)

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/21/2011 10:38

Thank you, Frost Butt, I really appreciate it :)


If I may ask, since this is a rather old piece, how did you come across it?

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/14/2011 20:52

wow! very well shaped with just the pumpkin alone.  Very pleasing form.  And the mouse is just adorable.  Great piece

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/30/2009 10:22

@ sharprm:  Ah, okay.  In which case, yes, I did just 'wing' it.  I simply 'pushed' areas of moving pixels as far as I thought I could go without creating an unnatural-looking hop, and pushed them less if I wanted the moving sections to appear to slow down.  FIve pixels in one frame, four in the next, then three, and so on.  Then I tweaked the distances until satisfied.  I'm afraid Math and me are no longer good friends (since that incident in primary school...) so I go it alone these days.  ;)

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/29/2009 15:50

just wondered if there was a math type rule like bigger parts accelerate less. Don't worry i'll try figuring it out next year.

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/29/2009 09:24

@ sharprm:  Well, it felt like I was doing it by eye, building up the animation with the pieces I needed as I went along (as is slightly suggested in the WIP) with a strong picture of the finished product in mind.

But then again, I've encountered plenty of animation tips in books and on the telly, which guided me to some extent while I was working.  Is that the type of rule you mean?

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/29/2009 03:20

were there any rules you used when making the animation or did u just do it by eye? thx

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/28/2009 10:06

@ sharprm:  Yes, I was trying to simulate weight in the animation.

Vote has been noted, and is the one I'm leaning toward as well.


sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/27/2009 18:59

i really like the animation - do you say it has good weight? anyway, my vote for 2.

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/26/2009 10:16

@ Jalonso:  Okay, I won't!  :)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/25/2009 21:42

OH! I didn't notice the AA to white, nvm...don't do it again :p

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/25/2009 10:54

@ RoboBOT & Dr D:

thanks, some good ideas!

Informal Poll (vote now!) :

  1. Wears lid like hat
  2. Lifts lid into place after returning inside
  3. Simple fade at end of animation
  4. Don't change

Refer to the number in the list to cast your vote!

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/25/2009 10:44

I think it would be awesome and cute.. If he popped out of the pumpkin with the lid still on top, and have it sort of bounce on his head, and then rest there, on top of his head, like a hat. Then, when he goes back down, it just falls into place.

Might or might not warrant the removal of the cutting phase, though. Just an idea. =P

Love what you have here.

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 10/25/2009 10:31

You could have him reach back into the pumpkin, grab the lid, and hold it over his head as he goes back inside, thus replacing the lid. It would then transition nicely back to it being cut again (even tho that doesn't really make sense). Or you could just reverse frames, like Manupix said, so that he goes back in, and then the lid is raised back into place. Or, you could have him cut out the lid, and then lift it up so that he ends up wearing it like a hat. Then he just lowers back inside and the lid is replaced. Just a few ideas!

@ FrostedMayem, Dex, Necroleachate, RollerKingdom, susuwataris, & orenstiv:

Thanks guys! :)


Thanks!  I can try (I had already AAd it to the white before I realized...).

@ Manupix & RoboBot:

Thanks!  I thought about looping, but the pumpkin has already been cut - any suggestions?

orenshtiv (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 10/25/2009 06:23

Nice! Happy Halloweenie :DD

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 10/24/2009 23:05

Definitely make this loop! This is really great, tho! It's fun. Another idea is have a face being carved in it from the inside as well.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/24/2009 21:05

Really cool!

It could easily loop, by replaying some frames in reverse...

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/24/2009 20:19

 it's so smooth. really nice!

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/24/2009 19:15


Necroleachate (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/24/2009 17:56

Very good and funny.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/24/2009 17:22

great animation~!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/24/2009 17:12

Very nice! Can  you at least make the BG transparent?

FrostedMayhem (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/24/2009 07:24

That's so awesomely cute :)
