For ^krissi001's Past v Present v Future contest. [link] :bucktooth:

I dunno why i made the emote explode during the end. i think because he was so overwhelmed by the awesomesauce future phone. :dummy:

First one are those really old phones. I don't know what they're called but you probably recognize it. the emote doesn't know what it is because it's so olddd :giggle: get it?

anyways, the present is the iPhone because now everyone has one :faint: except me :saddummy: and it can also be a music player so the emote is dancing to music. :thumbsup::lol:

the last one is a phone where you put on your head and you can speak to it and this screen pops up where you can see the person you are calling to talk. only the emote is so shocked that he is speechless and blows up. :mwahaha:

anyways, me and my crazy future ideas. :roll:

Making details:
Frames: 281 :faint: holy jeezus
layers: like i dunno a million??? :shifty:
time taken: i spent like 3 whole days. probably like more than 24 hours if you put it that way. :|
also my first time with the whole explosion thing.. i hate pixelling those :stare:
the timing might be weird and fast cuz i still dont' get the whole 0'07 thing but yeah.

Thanks for looking! :heart:
sorry for updating so much!

For the most part I think this is a great emote. The animation is generally smooth and the transitions between the scenes flow nicely. The two points I feel could do with some work are:

1) The music notes on the second scene. They seem really jerky and don't quite fit with the smooth animation everywhere else

2) I can't say I'm keen on the explosion at the end. Although it's not a bad explosion, it seems out of place in the story. I think having the emote simply walking off the edge and back on the other side would loop better

thank you! :lol: and yes the notes were bothering me a lot :noes: also, i have no idea why i did the explosion, it's kind of irreverent...

I really enjoyed this little animated emoticon. The future part was lost on me though, I had to read the description to figure that phase out. If I could make a suggestion it would be the make the headset more obviously sci-fi with some whacky colours, or something more "Tron" like. At the moment to me it looks like hair hehe. The animation is great, you've convinced me I need to put more effort into mine!
