I'm still learning how to adequately operate the GIMP Animation Package, so it'll be a little while until I enter the animated market. Besides, I just ended the whole "text ladened" era.

saphyre~ I love your clean uses of transparency. Very nice 9/10
pazerfan~ very nice, but I sense a bit of choppiness around her hair in the front. 7/10

--> New avie made by Pellissier. This is Setsuna (Set-chan ) from Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora. She could be the next goldilocks

Cyz: 10/10 nice clean color palette, cute image (who is she by the way, the nameless flower that warms my heart).

EDIT 3

nvm, I scrolled up.

Well according to Pell, the avie is a little tricky to loop. She could answer that one if she post here.

Deathkillz: Not a big fan of Shiori but she looks cute on that one. Such big eyes 8/10

She?! Twice?!? In case you didn't notice, I'm a male, you know?

And yes, that sequence is tricky because basically only the girl's hairs are moving, while the face is almost stuck. So could I do a reverse loop of the hair movement? Answer: yes I could, but it would just be stupid. ^^

Deathkillz: I knew Shiori goodness would have arisen after episode 17. The motion is cute and Shiori is a plus, but she's not centered! Being centered is the main thing for a character ^^ 7,5/10 ... if you'll move her a bit on the right, add an half point.

Mr.Kurosaki - 8.7
I blinked too much and thought it was a static image. Then it turned into the eye thing. Creepy... but in a good way. I wonder if you could turn him/her about 5-15 degrees counter-clockwise so she's a little more straight or angled up. :x

Ai Suzuki - 9.0
35 frames into 50KB!? That's no ballpark. Teach me your secrets sir! I've had to make so many sacrifices to get mine compressed. It's a little dizzying yet suspenseful. Honestly, I think it's awsome.

favojavo - 7.6
Cute enough. I wish I had more to say but I don't. Actually, I do. You should put that Shika Shake as your text below your name. Leave more room to the image. That's just what I would have done, at least.

Vexx - 8.3
You've had that girl in your avie foreeever. Anyways, I like the look. I just think the image is a little too white or too pale. Could use more contrast.

Pellissier - 8.2
Another avatar that I didn't know was animated until I stared at it for a few seconds. Something about it looks a little strange. I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's the cheeks changing in redness as she sticks her tongue out. That's probably it. Those black lines running through seem wierd. Also, the framing is slightly off. If you can, raise her so that the eyes are roughly 1/3 the way below the top of the frame. That's probably it, yeah.

Cyz - 8.5
That girl has a loooooot of hair. lol Border is somewhat difficult to see especially at the top left. The hair movement is a little strange, but I'm sure you had to make difficult adjustments as I had to with mine. = P

Deathkillz - 8.6
Basic eye blink. Quality is good, but again center it and all is well.


Mine kind of encompasses the same scene from the same anime as Deathkillz'. 27 frames reduced to 13ish. Help me out, Ai Suzuki! >_<

Lol, welcome to the "how the heck will I fit it under 50 Kb?" club!
By the way, there's not a rule saying "a lot of frames = huge size" . It's likely but not inevitable. Basically the size depends on the number of colours in the sequence (not meant as 64 or 128 palette). If you watch that scenes there are three dominant colours, red, yellow and black. If you check frame by frame you'll also see how a sequence of reddish frames is followed by a sequence of blackish and so on. So it makes sense the size is thin. At that point put a 64 colours palette, it won't show great compressions, and it will even fit under 50 Kb.

Sample:



This avatar I made has 73 frames and it's 49,75 Kb. No secrets, just rationality :P

You have trouble with your Shiori's because the scene is full of light and different colours. Plus KyoAni animations are not exactly the easiest to be giffed (except for blinks or alike) ^^

Zaris: The movements looks unnatural, either when she brings the glass at her mouth, either on the return. But this has to be accepted as consequence of the limit. The three first frames of the return phase though are choppy and that'd be my major complaint. As it is, is a bit flawy, but I acknowledge how difficult is that sequence 7/10

why is everyone so obsessed with it being centered? just the image of goddess shiori alone should be enough

zaris ~ what pelly said i should try that scene as well (gonna be difficult i see) 8/10 for effort and +1 for bias fanboyism lol

Yeah, seriously. Try it for yourself! You're about to see just how hard it is to make a repeating .gif of something that doesn't repeat at all! >= O

I had considered making it so that her lips would always be on the cup, but that didn't seem very natural at all. I tried desperately to mimic real drinking motion (or at least funny it in a "I just took a spoonful of curry and I'm about to explode" kind of way). This was the best I could do and the best quality I could take - 12% loss, high 70s dither. Talk about yuck. Thanks to you and Pellissier for understanding what I had to put up with. = P

In addition, Pellissier I see what you mean now. Less colors, less light, and you can make amends while keeping the quality and file size as good as intended. I especially get what you mean by light too. Black costs like a fraction of a byte. My signature is full of dark colors and when saving it to the web, it was only 28 kilobytes for a .jpg (I changed it to .png and it was still less than 50). Next time, I should try for a darker .gif in my avatar and see how that goes.


Deathkillz - 9.0
Better. Now I see you have the cameraman's eye. Don't you feel looks better too? = P If I could rub you the wrong way again, I'd say get more of her head in frame and less of the shoulders (more work! Bwahaha). I'm only saying this cuz her mouth and nose is next to invisible. Zooming in might fix that.
