Explosion for in my game

Don't make it simply recede back into a smaller blob of orange.  After it gets to the big fiery ball stage (mid-way through your animation) make it turn into smoke and fade/drift/dissolve slowly... perhaps twice the number of frames in the initial explosion itself.

Looks nice enough for what it is.

I don't know what program you used, but something went wrong after the first frame. There's antialiasing, stray pixels, and dithering all over the place.

I think in the last frame, the explosion shifts right one pixel, kind of looks odd.

Btw, it's spelt 'explosion'.

Congratulation this story is happy end. Thank you. - Ghost & Goblins

You used Flash to make the explosion?

Anyhow, here is an explosion I made a while ago to give you some reference:



Heck, here are a few more smaller sizes:



and a smaller one:




They are a bit "puffy" but they should get you started, they are all low frame-count and low color.

Here's my explosion with smoke:

I think it's better (except the strange quality) and that i could perfectly use it but i want to hear all your decisions ;D

EDIT:
Someone said the smoke was too green. I don't know if there's anything wrong with my monitor, but is it too green?
And that flash animated gifs looks really to strange to me, so everyone who knows some other program, tell me!

That looks really great! But i'm not that good to make that  :( and it would also be too big for my game, so what do you think of mine?



hehe... first saw your picture and than mine... than mine looks a bit less good looking ;) hehe... i think i need more practice ;)
