Just so to go with the challenge, I decided to work on this death animation for Level On-e's upcoming game "Dropping Danger" on this week.

Basically, Whiskers is being hit by a freezing drop from a Liquid Nitrogen Faucet. As there is a lot of actual movement involved, the animation alone will seem a bit off, but with the intended movement, it looks a lot better.

When he is hit, the ice cube formed will fall down while moving with the momentum from which side Whiskers was coming from, and, while the cube slides, it turns around on itself (in which I actually tried applying the "refracted light" effect on the reflection) then stops slowly and melts, Whiskers inside, finishing the animation.

I hope ya people like it!

Wow! I especially like the part when the ice cube forms, looks really cool.

nicely done! one thing to consider perhaps is that the tail looks transparent on the default theme. nothing you can really do about it really, just makes it look a bit off is all. I clicked on it and it did read better. great job nontheless.

Wow I forgot about this. Looking back at the challenge, this should have been first imo. Very well done.

Oh man, great work! Lovely animation, and I'm impressed how you seem to have implemented the effect of light breaking through ice as well!

Congratulations of representing light refraction so well. Great animation. I can imagine Whiskers running his ruin.
