Fireworks by Mr-Jaunty Fireworks by Mr-Jaunty
A couple of days late, I know, but that's what I get for starting it at seven PM on July fourth and then obtaining a new game.

Anyway, this is my Fourth of July emote, because there aren't already a bunch of those... As you can see, I made it in the amateur film style with shaky camera and off-center focus.

The loop's a bit crap but I was growing bored with it.

I'd also like to add that this is my first ever animated emote with a background, as well as the first time I've dithered large-scale emotes... or any emotes at all for that matter.

One last thing before I start my list. I want to say this before someone asks, and someone will probably still ask anyway, but no, it cannot be turned into a plz account.

Time taken: Thirty-some hours, but only about eight of that was actual work. :B
Program(s) used: My usual Photoshop and ImageReady.
Frames: 142
Layers: 92

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-11-05
Fireworks by ~Mr-Jaunty is a brilliant little emoticon with a fantastic camera effect and great firework pixelling. The whole animation fits smoothly together to form an awesome emote to celebrate events such as Bonfire Night today. ( Suggested by Ljserpent and Featured by Synfull )

Wow, I cant believe this is from 2009! This is so good! I really like the tilted camera at the beginning and the awkward ending of the "video" at the end, it's really cute to see in pixel form.

And there is another New Year coming up! This is an excellent moment to express my gratitude for creating the best Rocket-launching smiley ever...

You're very smart by doing this, I saw many great details, as the hands of the emoticon who wants to stop the camera after the fireworks and that he was running right before the firework started. :) Clever. :thumbsup: You make me smile of proudness.

Oh ! I love it :love: It is amazing the care you put on this work. Very well done, I am impressed by the little emote becoming more big while he is coming front to the camera, and the inverse. And it is so cute :heart:

Chrysshart Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2009  Student Digital Artist
uhm, no not really. I'd suggest looking in an English history book, or Googling. V for Vendetta is about the Gunpowder Treason, but it's all dramatized and whatnot. It's not exactly historically accurate.
