Summer Time by Soulnova Summer Time by Soulnova
It took me until 3.30am to finish this, spent the whole Sunday working on it to make the deadline. DONE!

Made as contest entry at ee-motes -> ee-motes.deviantart.com/journa…

Frame count: 165
Used layers: 288
Unused layers (dropped ideas):
43
Time spent: ~20-25 hours?

Was definitely fun to try out animating waves and practice angles with the mechanical arm.

Also needed quite some time to get the sand done the way I wanted to. A few things might need a bit more polish, but I think for the time I had it turned out pretty great. =P

Hi! I'm here because you sent me a llama, and as I returned it, I saw this on your main page and thought it was super-adorable!
It's very detailed, many things are going on in the scene (the wave, volleyball, just chilling, etc.), and it's a very cute art compressed into one :)
I don't know you and you don't know me, but I wanted to stop by to tell you that this is super-adorable, and I admire your other emote work as well!

Yup, gotta love detail! :la: There's only so much detail you can apply to emoticons though, so you can play with the background a lot instead. :giggle:

With the ridiculously high temperatues we had some days ago (and now it's around 20°C or less), I prefer when it's colder. =P
