the zippy stuff, is motion blur frames, when he stretches the animation out, makes it looks like he's zipping around and schtuff!

iST:  That animation will look great if you can get the blur effect. It'd be pretty sweet if you animated the pirates mouth moving up and down too  :P

could fix the purple though i think, make it a little stronger if your into that kinda thing
Yea I figured the saturated orange I had was beating up other colors and making stuff look uneven so i took it out

Here's an update getting into the aa. I'm pretty shaky with heavy aa. So I'm not sure if my technique in some areas is as good as it could be

1bit action:

rats are leaving the boat - cat too.

and here is the progress so far:

Arrgh is it really THAT neon? (I really start to hate LCD's ...)

some thoughts: I tried to keep this connected to his avatar which has only a few colors (3 if I remember correct) and a kinda flat look. That flatness is a result of the low contrast which I obviously didn't used in my pic. But I hope it still has a "flat" look. Anyway the pose of the pirate comes close to the pose of the guy in the avatar AND there's a cat in it (he likes cats). Dunno if I will do another one with more colors... let's see. Oh and I do not consider this one finetuned and all so please c+c appreciated!

iST: The speech bubble is absolutely gorgeous - lovin the idea!
sedge: HUGE improvement
pep: That's wonderful but I like the higher contrast version much better
monsoon: I can't wait to see this becoming real. The face looks ace but I like your simple bg most so far...

Hey guys, I just want to see who's done, who doesn't have a partner, who's still working on WIP and whatnot.

Well, I was unhappy with what I had before, so I scrapped it in favor of a more cartoony style:


Is this in more of your style, iST?

BTW, yeah, for the blur, I just stretch the guy out to make it look like he's goin' really fast. That is one of my most prided works, and one of a very few animations. Do it justice. ;)

 :D Yes. This is BIW, believe it or not. I'm having trouble with texturing and just general texturing. And I have already run out of colors.  ::) Any help appreciated.
