If there are any other compulsive ABC-viewers out there, it is entirely possible that you have come to this entry shortly after seeing Andrew Denton interviewing Jose Ramos Horta or, as it can appear if glimpsed briefly, one man making a mockery of the laws of physics by talking to himself 20 years in the future. Dad pointed out that this illusion is shattered near-immediately by the fact that Horta actually has quite a bit more hair, but I reason that in 20 years the cure for male-pattern baldness shall be discovered. Hell, I'm relying on it.
Anyway, the point of this prattlesome jackaknapery, if you have just walked in from this surreal experience, prepare for something EVEN MORE surreal... well, not really but I'm trying to sell it as such... the wonders of poorly-drawn animation.
You may recall my scarcely-visible pixel-art posted along with a declaration of my intent to make an old-skool adventure. Well, this is a continuation of that. In my spare time when I'm in the mood I've been working on animating those lumps of pixels and the results have impressed me if nobody else. I've done quite a few walkcycles now, but shown here in particular are parts of those of Ben Chatham and Duane The Zombie Water, two of the colourful characters to appear in my protogenic master-piece.
Bear in mind, from the way that blogger is acting I get the distinct impression that these aren't actually about to animate at all and thus the entire post will be pointless.... enjoy!
Oh, Christ now I think I've lost them...
Right, now idea at all how this is going to turn out...
EDIT: Oh, for fuck's sake it doesn't work. And Blogger help has nothing but a link to another blog that won't load. Well, isn't THAT helpful? A clue: I kill you all.
Well, take this post as to mean I created some animations and am quite pleased with myself. I'm going to bed and life is too short to waste wrangling with this sort of crap. I mean, hell, it's not as if I just spent about an hour formatting them into shitty .gif format just so that I could post them as an animating file in the first place. All this youngster technology, taking our jobs.. *increasingly incoherent rambling...*
