Been a loooong while since I did such avatars, and I hope it doesn't show.
And I just remembered how much of a pain they are to optimise for dA's specifications, on top of the pixel by pixel animation. Proves my patience has gone elsewhere nowadays.
Anyways, this is my contest submission for =FreeAvatarProject
's Avatar contest.
. Give it a go if you're interested!
Done with The GIMP, 2.5 hours, 108 or so frames. No, don't request me for any more avatars, I won't do them anymore for free. But I will gladly teach you how I make these kinda avatars if you'll rather do it yourself.
