77 frames, colored while watching movies, so it probably took about... 6 hours? Done with Adobe Photoshop CS6
PLEASE, READ! (and don't make me hate you for messaging questions about everything that I already wrote here because you were too lazy to read! Really, I don't want to be mean, but it's getting really annoying.)
Since many of you asked me this, and I am sired of answering every single note/ comment about tips and tutorials 'how to animate stuff' I decided to share a nice tutorial that I stumbled upon on my tumblr. [link] <-- here is everything I'm wiling to share about animating, that is how to use photoshop to make animations. Unfortunatelly tips about the movement I'm going to keep for myself. Professional secrecy! Mwuahahha.
Eriu belongs to me.
EDIT: This short bit got dubbed Check it out! [link] I love it!
excuse, how do you export this without losing frame rate quality? ive been working on some animations in PS6 and every time i save them for the web, i choose Gif and the quality slightly lags. do you have any tips? thanks.
Quality will always lag a bit when you work with colored animation. Basically, the less colors, the more quality. Here I only have a few, and variations between, and all of those fit within the around 260 colors in animation rule (and if not, program works with pixels to make it look nicer). The more colors and variations you have, the more simplified the scheme will have to be.
