Animated Icon Tutorial by f-sonic Animated Icon Tutorial by f-sonic
WARNING large file
well a while back i put up a poll asking people what kind of tutorial they would like to see from me. and they voted for an animation tutorial
so i decided to upload one of my animated icon 8D

Just in case any of you guys have ever wondered how people make animated gif avatars.
well here is how i do it.

sry if it's complicated, but i tried to make it as simple as possible xD as i know how confusing tutorials can be :U they can make you more confused rather than helping sometimes.

You can see the final result on my avatar :3

Artwork and animation is (c) :iconf-sonic:
Character is (c) :iconsegaplz:

When i tried to resize it to 50+50 it did an auto number on width by 8 more. so i tried to resize it on gimp and it look both cruddy and none animated (my icon)

This is pretty helpful, does Macromedia Flash 8 Portable count?

Aww, what a pity. I'm a GIMP user D: But I know that I could make "GIF"-files as well.
But it's uncertain that it works as well unlike other artwork softwares :saddummy:

I'll try it myself once I get a copy of flash but... even with tutorials I'm often like "huh? What now...". But that's not because of the tutorials but of my talent of confusing myself xDD"
