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

Overly energetic, defeated, tech-oriented / evil scientist and all this stuff, I love putting together such things! :happybounce:

I'm very happy you like it, and I thank you for taking your time to browse through my gallery (watching, faving and commenting on top of that!).

I'm looking forward to seeing you again on the next uploads, you can simply write me a note in case you're up for a chat. I don't mind. :giggle:

It shows! It is so well done. In no way did it seem choppy. The animation is very fluid.

I confess to be a bit of an emote addict. I truly could spend hours browsing through galleries like yours. So, yeah, you'll see me around again, possibly very soon. :shifty:

And thank you. The same to you as well. Drop me a line.. any time.

Definitely helped to figure out how to animate a few things. :giggle:

Well, I'll be happy when you do! If all goes well, there will be new stuff at around the weekend. :)

You can check all the details in the description. 165 frames etc... :giggle:

The second time someone actually said they "admire" me or my work. And that from when I've properly started working on everything again. More reason to keep it up the way I did so far, thank you! :happybounce:

Progressed a bit with both animations I'm currently working on. I'm almost done with the outlines of the pixel art animation (about 250px height) and got some props done for an emoticon animation. I'm taking a day off on Friday simply because, to work on animations and some preparation stuff for when we move into the new flat. =P

Heh, it's hard to tell on this size. "Originall" it's grapes, but people also came with carrots, ice cream and other weird stuff... XD But it definitely is MLG. =P

Yeah, for every of the recently uploaded emoticons I needed a "minimum" of 1 hour of concentrated work. But it sure is a lot of fun, even more when you see the finished animation. :)

I spend a full Sunday, that I had to spend on the animation, because that was just before the deadline of the contest I made it for! :lmao:

But besides that, I commute a lot every day, and I find at least 2 hours to do something on the laptop. :D
