So this is what 40-somethings do in their spare time? I clock in at 44.

Shameful, but fun.

Have a cup of Carl's Eel Face Soup rather than coffee.

Soup is good food

I'll have the coffee instead, thank you very much.

Eel tastes too much like chicken.


Make that two cups of coffee.

OH no, remember Templar i'm 29 that's Twenty Nine.. and I'll BE Twenty Nine in a few months... so that would make me the baby of the group


Oh and I switched my avvie back to this one because someone found it in the early part of the thread and I caught them using it, since it *IS* technically a picture of me that a fellow artist drew of me, I didn't think it proper that some "guy" was using it simply because they were a bsg fan ... hmmmm.

So... Ahhh... How long exactly have you been 29?


*DUCKS*

I'm really surprised someone took your original av. I can see where you're coming from though, even though I'd make someone their own personal art in a sec, I'd be a bit peeved if someone took one of my own, especially without asking for permission first.

Sorry couldn't resist...
I know Vkeys out there right now, plotting my eventual demise....


I had the same conversation with Ms. Templar in our initial days, who is 21, and will be 21 this year and next year and so on. It kinda rang the funny bell with me...

vkey's lying. I saw a pic of her during the ATS Regent Fiasco, that she posted.

She's actually not a day over 21.


(Now she better delete it from her upload folder, quick, before all the hounds go looking through the thread.)

So I have a new idea.

(That shouldn't be strange, coming from me.)

The whole lining up of avatars that are animated to match a background image was a neat exercise. But we solved it. It's doable, and now that we now how, meh, kinda boring.

However, many people tote a profile background, and place a transparent .gif on top of it, as their avatar.

Okay. That's the standard. But why? People love the full image perspective. Avatars are too tiny, and all that space needs used. Right?

There are some people here who are animation deficient, (*ahem* bfft, who continuously states he sucks at animations) but I suck at graphic design. I'm not an artist like you guys are.

An animation is nothing more than a series of pics that are encapsulated into a .gif file, and everyone's software should be able to export to .gif format. It's just frames, a pic that is altered, and the end result is usually no more than 6 frames to achieve a suitable animation.

.gifs often have a transparent background. Most people have a transparent 170 x 240 avatar.

See where I'm going with this?

A sort of collaborative effort where we share techniques, and erase the mystery of animations once and for all. The canvas is the proverbial avatar space, a transparent 170x240 block, that could bring effects to a person's background image. I'm emphasizing subtle here, nothing flashy. We don't want the transparent avatars to induce epilepsy, but we do want to have effects that would be suitable across a wide variety of background images.

The idea?

A butterfly that flits across the avatar space every 5 seconds or so.

An ATS logo that fades in and out, every 8 seconds or so.

A UFO that floats across the appropriate background.

A bird that flies in, and lands, and flies off.

The sun rising, and setting. The shadow effect, awesome on that one.

The point is that they need to be generalized, and match a variety of backgrounds. Easily switchable.

Keep in mind, the animated avatars should be able to be popped above any background image, without interfering with the overall effect.

The alignment factor is irrelevant. The file size is. All transparent animated avatars are limited to 75kb. They need to be kept sweet, short, and simple.

I think the most popular would be the ATS logo as an animated avatar, with a 5-8 second delay. Anyone want to do that one?
