GOD these are so goooood! Increadibly remarkable! At this rate you would think you've already created a game! The only thing I wish is that I could get something fantastic made by you of my bab, but I doubt your doing requests anytime soon hehe.
Actually... I wouldn't mind some extra practice with other people's ideas / characters.

If you'd like, feel free to pm me a request. ;3

Gosh, looking back at this it's just as amazing as ever (even if it's missing a little markiplier now).
I've improved ( http://i.imgur.com/q03Bx8a.gif ) and you continue to inspire me. I really like your little dialogue scene at the top there, and I think you could make a whole story and put it on youtube and it could be really popular.
Aww!!! I love to hear that I'm so inspiring to you! ;D Makes me feel all good inside.
Also, nice job there! pretty good! You're getting there buddie. ;3

I've considered making a story with my animations, it might be fun if the time to make more stuff for such a thing. lol

Love your pixel art! *Tries to make someone running in a pixel art* *Fails*
Do you by any chance take requests? >v<
Dawww! thank you! xD
And sure I sometimes do take requests, it all depends on what you have in mind. ;3
*is jealous and refuses to compliment you on your brilliancy and skill; after all, a true pixel extraordinaire doesn't need social motivation to fuel and inspire himself to continue his great artwork*

;P Keep it up, you.
As a side note:

I've always wondered how you pixel artists (pixelists?) knew how and where to arrange the pixels so it forms a style, an image, even a GIF? I've tried and, well, it just seems like it requires planning, patience, and prior knowledge on the subject, none of which I have.
Baww, thanks. :3

And in my opinion you just have to know the basic jists of anatomy, and just choosing a way to make it that you like personally. In pixel art you're just basically making the shape of your subject with more shapes (square pixels). Sort of like a digital mosaic. In pixel art you really just have to mess around till you discover something that you like, unless you're trying to draw a more specific style.

I had to experiment a lot with drawing pixels till I found a way to shade that I liked, a way to make the anatomy that I liked, how small I want to draw them, how large I want to draw them, etc etc.
It also helps to observe other styles of pixel art throughout the ages and see what other artists do with their styles.
Doing this helped me assess what I liked, and wanted to draw most when doing pixel art.

With gifs, In my own opinion, its MUCH EASIER to animate in pixel art on a tiny scale. What I do is look at running animations or animation frame guides to help me get a better understanding of how it should look. I make each frame of the running person in 1 solid color, using a program with layers the can be transparent, then label each body part in different colors.

Hope this advice was kinda helpful. :3
But just remember, experiment a bunch, use references when you're unsure, and have fun with it! ;D
This... is very helpful, actually.

Thank you. I'll be sure to experiment with pixel art more. I've always been fascinated by pixels, anyways; they just seem so... Retro, classic, and (in the case of pixel scenery or pixel games) beautiful. They leave more to the imagination with the "low resolution" characteristic they possess.

Anyways, I'll put an end to this rambling. Cya, Pixellis. :]
I'm glad to be of assistance! Good luck with your drawing! ;3

Make a game :3
Funny you say that, I've always wanted to make a digital game...  But I don't know coding, how to make music, or other important aspects besides the artwork.  (lol)
   If I did, it might be a Free-For-All Arena game with tons of powers/abilities.  Or a more story line based game like Metroid meets Mario Bros, but a more medieval fantasy theme.

I know how to create games with Game Maker platform, which is quite easy to learn (And perfect for indie games),
"Undertale", is an example of a game made with Game Maker.
Maybe we can plan something together for fun; looking for an artist :P
message if you interested.

Cool! I was using another one, gifmaker.me , but it doesn't let you save or customize delay very well.
Yea, that's why I actually use UnFREEz (an installed program) to make the actual gif, then use the website to make the gif better.  I find this process tends to work well for me.

These are beyond amazing.  The detail in the first half is fabulous, and the animations in the second half are equally fabulous.  Impressed isn't a good word to describe what I think about this blog; I'm astounded.  :O
You kindness exceeds you words.  :D
   I'm glad you like them.  ;)
