I've been playing around with GIMP lately, learning how to make all sorts of fun and interesting images and animated GIFs. Many of my avatars of late have been prime examples of my dabbling in the digital imaging arts. Some of them I am quite fond of, and many of you have given me good feedback. Because I've put significant effort into a few of them, I thought that it'd be a waste to keep them all to myself.
In this thread, you'll find copies of many of the animated avatars that I have made in the past. I'll update it as I make others that I think are good. Please feel free to use them as you like!
And if you have any suggestions or requests, please feel free to drop them here (or just send me a PM) and I'll see what I can do.
edit: I'm updating the GIFs with linked BBCode so that their animation doesn't lag as I add more and more to the first post. They're links, so just click what you see and you'll be taken to the original GIF. Enjoy!
Super Mario (and a Samurai Jack crossover)
Chrono Trigger (these look best on a dark background, try the CP9 theme)
I get nearly all of the sprites that I use from Spriters-Resource. Many thanks to A.J. Nitro for the Super Mario Bros. rips, to CRAPCOM and Nitratez for the Super Mario Bros. 3 rips, and also to Ryan914, Toadkarter, and Tonberry2k for the Chrono Trigger ones. You guys rock!
