Dr. Patches - Gun Shopping by Soulnova Dr. Patches - Gun Shopping by Soulnova
Coming back with a big bang, also introducing an own emoticon character, Dr. Patches! :giggle:

What took the most effort to make: Explosions, lots of them. Alone for the nuke I needed 3 hours.

Time spent: 25 - 30 hours
Frames: 605
Layers: 419

I know, the animation is a bit slow paced.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-01
Dr. Patches - Gun Shopping by *Soulnova. In the words of the suggester, "This is a very funny emoticon with astounding animation!" ( Suggested by IceXDragon and Featured by ChaosEmeraldHunter )
:iconladyloki516:
I think it was a very interesting animation. You can tell that you spent a lot of time on this animation. It has an interesting story to it and I thought it was a very funny animation. Even though it was a bit long and confusing at first, I thought it was very good, going through the different guns and targets and such, and how he wanted a bigger explosion with each explosion that he got. All in all, though, I really liked this deviation very much, and wish I could work something this good into my art. I think that you should use this character again, he left me wanting more.
What do you think?

Nice... the animation is so smooth and flows great :D it's crazy how much time and effort has to go into these things when they only end up 30-60 seconds long, ya know? :clap: good job!!!

i have made a few terrible ones, not good enough to be put on here, but you are right, you but so much time and make ALOT of frames and then the result is only a few seconds.

Does it flash and then go to the beginning of the animation?

No just randomly flashes throughout...

Oh, sometimes with me some gifs will flash and then go back to the beginning. Usually if I reload the page it fixes it.

I already had various ideas for it, but most aren't without much violence. In the end, I though a very hot toast to the eye might be the cause for it. No? :|
