The Impossible Technicolor Staircase by Waluigi-Prower The Impossible Technicolor Staircase by Waluigi-Prower
EDIT: WOOO ANOTHER DAILY DEVIATION. Thanks so much *thatindividual, ~Dezenerate, and ^SparklyDest for suggesting / featuring this piece! :la:

Welp. I spent a buttload of time on this, and for some reason the colors didn't come out quite as planned. Probably something to do with the indexing color system and how I used the opacity of the eraser for some stuff. Oh well.

It all started with the black and white staircase, then an emote bouncing around on it, then it being a rainbow color, then you have this.

FRAMES: 110

TIME TAKEN THINGS I DID WHILE I PROCRASTINATED FROM THIS:
Got a premium TF2 account
Obtained Music Has the Right to Children and Geogaddi from Boards of Canada
Beat Saints Row 3, Mario Kart 7, Ocarina of Time 3D + Master Quest
Managed a 1,500 line 84 minute game of Tetris
Destroyed a pornography collection
Stared

Get the reference anyone? No? Spaghett?

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-01
The Impossible Technicolor Staircase by =Waluigi-Prower The suggester said: "Mr. Prower busted a gut working on this, and it shows. I see a smooth and charming piece of animation that's sure to 'brighten' up your day." Never ending rainbow climb? Yeah, my day has been officially brightened. :D ( Suggested by farand and Featured by SparklyDest )
:iconombrasova:
It's very interesting.
For some reason I feel like staring it all day.
Why did I call it interesting? Why I have no idea... But it is...

I love that little guy bouncing and the color actually has a really cool affect.

The little guy changes color into the undescovered color of the stairs...

Does he have polar bear furr?

Yes i've run out of things to say...

But simple put: I love it and it's like brain candy.

Please, tell me next time you make one of these.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
101 out of 110 deviants thought this was fair.

:iconfarand:
I'm not an emoticonist; therefore I'm describing this emoticon from the point of view of a lay person.

Not that this has any bearing on the deviation, but the artist told me that he had straddled two years, from November 2011 to January 2012, working on this - and it shows. The smoothness of animation is as impressive as it is pleasing. Since I'm unbiased because I don't have a stock of emoticon knowledge, I'll say that I can't find any flaws with this.

If emoticons could feel anything, I'm sure that this one would be having enormous fun hopping around those stairs, which bring to my mind Escher's 'Crazy Stairs' or something similar: if you look at the stairs, they seem to be going up all the time, never down.

I've never seen anything quite like this on deviantART. Perhaps I'd award five stars for Vision, Originality, Technique and Impact if I was an emoticonist and so had more knowledge of emoticons; but, as I mentioned, I'm not an emoticonist, so I'm awarding four stars for each category. The blank stars represent the blanks in my knowledge.

It's all about aiming the grenades correctly for angle above the ground and aiming for the enemy's future location. :iconforscience:

And with stickies, just set up traps everywhere and annoy people with them.

But the thing is, a lot of the time it would derp out for me and enemies could just walk all over mah bombs and not die!
And I'm gonna sound like a noob when I say this but I never figured out how to set of the stickys...

The stickies don't detonate by people walking over them, you have to manually do it yourself. Try right clicking. :B

Yep! In GIMP, each layer can be treated as a frame of animation if you save it as a .gif file and specify it as an animation.

One of my friends wrote a little article about it, if you wanna learn more. [link] :D
