Grenade Launcher by Soulnova Grenade Launcher by Soulnova
Well, this took me quite a while! :lol:

I finally wanted to try animating special effects and since explosions are my favorite, I made this.
Also, grenade launchers are awesome. Resident Evil ftw. :D

I used a few references from other emoticonists who made animated explosions, ^CookiemagiK's being the most helpful one. He knows. ;P

I hope you enjoy the 'splosives!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-26
Grenade Launcher by =Soulnova is a brilliant display of emote perspective work topped off with a flawless explosion to make a fun and exciting emoticon ( Suggested by tainted-dark and Featured by Synfull )
:iconflorianreich:
Hell the time it took was worth it!
I like the best the explosion.
A truely killing explosion! O.O

The flight of the grenade takes a interesting way
with loops, but this makes is look truely natural,
considering the wind which is disturbing the straight way.

The shades of the lil emote and the gun look truely nice
when they got stretched by the light of the explosion,
what an eye candy. :dummy:

But i dislike the shade of the emote,
i looks a bit rough, like he has only the steps of colors.
Maybe a slight gradient would make it look more smoothy.
Just a suggestion, it's your favour, i don't want to tell you what you have to do. ;)

So all in all a truely good work,
I like it! :clap:

Plus, congratz to the DD, this work deserves it. :la:

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

You've got some very nice weapon drawings on your account there. I'm watching you now, you might just give me the inspiration I need at some point. ;P

Also, there'll be a weapon-related animation up soon. Just in case you want to drop by or watch me not to miss it. Critique will also be welcome.

PS: Sorry for the late response. I'm back again.

This is probably one of my favourite emote animations I have ever seen, so :+fav:. It's animation is quite smooth and the explosion is masterful. I do have one question though, what was you inspiration for having the grenade barrel role/spin midair? Is that what grenades do when launched? I never really looked into it?
Reply
:iconsoulnova:
Soulnova Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010
Well, I've seen the grenade launcher do that in Call of Duty: Modern Wardare 2. I guess it's due to the air resistance.

I did it a bit too much, but hey. =P

Naaaaaah, definitely not Flash. You can't draw pixels in flash, as far as I know.
I did it with Photoshop (drawing) and Fireworks CS3 (animation).

Irgendwie versteh ich nicht wirklich warum das ne DD geworden ist.
Naja, wem halt das Glück zufällt, der sollte es wohl auch annehmen. Ich will nicht sagen, dass die Ani schlecht ist. Sie will mir persönlich nur nicht so richtig gefallen, du hast Besseres.
