Inspiration by CryoSphinx Inspiration by CryoSphinx
"You never know where inspiration will come from or where it will lead you!" :dummy:

Don't you hate it when you get a 'great' idea, but you don't have anything handy to write it down with? And then, you lose it. :shakefist:

It was supposed to be a short little animation, but it kept demanding more and more frames. Until it became what it is now.


246 Frames
Made with Gimp and the GAP

Best viewed in FireFox 3 (but it should be fine with other browsers)

Many thanks to all the talented Pixel Artists on DA for inspiration and technical ideas. Especially to :iconcookiemagik: for explaining the different frame rate limits on various browsers.

EDIT: Changed some colors to make it easier to see.
EDIT v2: I removed some extra frames that I accidentally added in the previous edit. :iconfacepalmplz:

EDIT v3: Wow! a DD! :excited: Thank you `Synfull and ^PurpelBlur! :boogie:

EDIT v4: I made an abbreviated version, for use as an avatar, or if you prefer just the dancing in circles part. [link]
