Need Animated Banner

Postby TNHawke » May 19th, 2012, 10:00:21 pm

The General has a crazy new plot for adding to the ranks of the Skwiddie Army. To help advertise for his epic recruitment effort, we need some propoganda advertising.

What I have in mind is a banner that will fit in the signatures here on this forum. The animated part needs to be a line of skwiddies (hatchling krakens) moving across the banner (left to right, , but here and there need to be a missing Skwiddie. Any kind of decorations as far as army hats, stick guns, boots on the tentacles (or just a skwiddie hopping along in a boot), etc, would be fun, so feel free to use your imagination.
Wording could be something along the lines of "Help fill in the ranks of the Marching Skwiddie Army"
Fonts should be easy to read, so, nothing too fancy or flashy, but boring is boring too.
Hawke likes purple, so if that color can be incorporated, great!

I am willing to pay in gold, or anything in my prizes tab http://magistream.com/user/TNHawke/Prizes for the banner I choose to use, and I may very well choose more than one.

It's been a while since I've animated pixels, so this may take me a while.
I guess these are bad examples, but in case you're interested these are simple ones I've done;

But, if you do choose to use mine, may I request the Adremeri? I've been hunting down one for a while now.XD

Edit- I'll just show off some accessories I made for them. :yarly:

Those are adorable, especially the dolphin and orca.

The guns are extremely well done, but for the banner, I would rather have toy weapons, like wooden swords and rubber band and marshmallow guns and stuff. Sure, the General may be serious about his take over of the Keep, but c'mon, the army is made up of a bunch of kids. *giggles* They're much more mischievous than dangerous.

I'm definitely looking forward to what you come up with!

And I'll set the adremeri aside for you. I haven't had any plans for selling or trading it, but I'll certainly keep it in mind.

Oh, lol! Well, I'll change the colours to make them look like water guns and add some more "kid friendly" weapons.XD

Oh, I have started. Not in very far, but just to give you an idea.I was planning on having the army rush in and pass the little booty-skwiddie while dragging along a banner with the words you requested. :lol:
But we'll see how long that takes.XD.

How's that? I can adjust the animation if it's too fast/slow/whatever.

OMG, I think I just died of squee. I LOVE how his eyes bug out just before it resets.
I'm not sure that it conveys what I'm trying to do. Maybe I should fill you guys in on the plot.
The Skwiddies are numbered. Some numbers are missing. The General demands those numbers be filled in. Take a look at my Marching tab if you dare to brave it and I think you'll pick up on what the goal is.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! all over again!
It's definitely too fast. I can't quite tell what each one is holding/ doing before it's gone. Also, I think there need to be a few more, that way it looks more like they are marching (even if not in a very good formation) and there are distinct gaps. Right now it just looks like a small horde running across the screen haphazardly.
Also, maybe a bit bolder on the lettering, or even with a white outline? It's a little hard to read.

Sure thing. Good thing you listed a few other weapon-y items, I kinda ran out of ideas with the hat, gun, sword, and boots XD

Ah, I guess I should of asked more question before I started. :derp:
I'll delete what I've added since then and try my best to get it as you want.

Awesome animation, Eds! Though, what're the blue and green things? Bullets? ;_; Poor skwiddies.

Better, TNHawke?
