So hey, technical question:

Gif optimization software, such as Gifsicle, can optimize animated gifs by using transparency to isolate the unchanging parts of the animation, and thus significantly reduce the resulting file size. My challenge entry is well over 800KB unoptimized, and 444KB when optimized using transparency method. Visually, the difference is non-existant (as in, the transparency is not visible on the animation).

I wonder if it's okay by challenge rules to use transparency in this way?

*edit* also, cheating:

@Mrmo: that's fine, since neither frame has transparent pixels. Nice cheat too :p

Started this little number today. Pretty new to pixels and I should have done this way smaller because I bit off more than I can chew! Still I like where it's going. Any CC welcome.

I'm a bit nervous to post. I just joined yesterday, and have never really done pixel art before, and hardly even do regular art/drawing, but I really want to learn. I figured doing the contests will give me good practice, and ideas of what to do.

Try not to judge me, I'm sure this is probably done wrong in so many ways. Feel free to give criticism, as I want to learn.

Anyway, my thing is of Naru (big black one), and Ori(the little white guy in Naru's arms) from a scene in Ori and the Blind Forest. I love that game to bits, so I figured I would try to do some art of it. My doodle here does not do it justice, and people should go play that game, its gorgeous! Oh, and the ball off to the side is Sein, a little ball of light type creature, which provides most of the light source for the image (note: Ori glows a bit, too)



I hope I can cobble together a background, or at least a border, before the contest ends so I can submit it.

Hey I'm new too, cant give advice, but I can tell you that looks nice.

As it stands there are 35 entries for the contest, I love the accessibility of 2 colors.
