from about two months ago? @_@ It's been a long time since I started this and it drove me crazy. Animating is evil. None of you ever get into animation. Save yourselves the trouble. In fact stay really far away from pixel art forever. Go learn how to build boats or something. Boats shaped like Ponies.I wouldn't mind seeing that.
Anyhow, the story here is that I started with the animation on the right, and after getting as far as I did, decided on the advice of a few people that it was kind of... nonsensical in concept. It didn't really seem to fit what I was going for, and the hoof movement was superfluous and Raindew would be super dizzy and such, so I started over from scratch and went for the sitting animation on the left instead. I'm much happier with how it turned out, and it looks more complete, and it makes Ruby look less like an annoying pest xD
Like all icons that are done for people, these are only for the person they are for
. Anybody else using these will have copious amounts of glue bottles opened atop their heads.
Raindew Mist and Ruby Oh and, dA has tiny icon filesizes, and transparency is a big jerk that makes things way bigger than it needs to. Hmph.
