The Luggage by otohime0394 The Luggage by otohime0394
A gift for =phlum. :B
Because I wanted to practice my animation, and I thought that Luggage is just too awesome not to attempt at least once. :giggle:

If you don't know, this is the Luggage from 'The Colour of Magic' which I'm reading (between books for school) on =phlum's recommendation. It's a big box full of gold. On legs. What's not to love about it?! :love:

I added the emotes later in the process, as it was originally just going to be Luggage running and running and running...
I like it better this way, though! :dummy:

Overall I'm quite happy with this one.
Apart from maybe the legs, because I had no idea how to animate running. And the thought of pixelling lots of tiny feet terrified me slightly, so I just did a mass of blobs. Feedback is welcome! :aww:

Also, I made the emotes at night without the internet (my parents turn everything - including the modem - off at night) so I couldn't reference any pictures of Flump for the colours. :B And a guide for how to make him was posted the day after. :grump: Oh well. Close enough.

Flump... what a meanie... let Selador ride too!

Flump =phlum
Selador =otohime0394
Luggage Terry Pratchett

P.S. I know I said I wouldn't do any more today because I slacked on school work yesterday. But I finished it this morning in bed. Therefore I wasn't up. Therefore my Sunday hadn't officially started... :shifty:
I'm also working on an avatar request for ~IcEcReAm-LeViAtHaN. I'll try to get that done as soon as possible.

Why haven't I seen this?! Damn giant inbox!

It still blows my mind that you can make these (I guess in my head I thought it may have been robots that create pixel art)! And though I'm no expert, this looks pretty complex to me, what with the emoticons, the chest-lid and the 'blobs'! I wish I had more knowledge of this field so I could give you more interesting feedback - but for now, just know that I love it!

:lmao: It's okay, I understand!! I've been battling my inbox monster for quite a while, but there seems to be no progress either way.
It's actually a lot simpler than it looks! And I know that because I've only had a clue about it for all of... 3 weeks. Though this was complicated in terms of trying to time everything to move together in a way that was even remotely convincing. And the blobs were absolutely evil! ;P
Thank you very much!

*Shifts slowly off to the side to avoid being charged by the luggage*
"I think... I'm just gonna go stand over there." *Points off into the distance and legs it*

Awesome work, I can see what you mean about the feet/blobs, but I honestly can't think of any other way to do it, and it looks perfectly fine as is :happybounce:

Watch out! It eats people too! :noes:
As long as you're not an enemy of =phlum (who appears to be its master in this case) then you're probably okay.

Thank you!! :D I appreciate your feedback. :huggle:
