PodTard. by Sinister-Starfeesh PodTard. by Sinister-Starfeesh
Pixel practice mainly.

I got the idea when i was having hell with my goit of an Ipod earlier today, and then when i'd finally fixed it i started doing silly dances to the songs on it :la:

Very very basic pixel work :paranoid:
No dithering or anything :no:
I've always found black an ass to do :|

AND IM PRETTY SURE FIREFACKER HAS SPED IT UP :icongrumpyplz:

This is actually the first time I've ever seen an emoticon dancing to the tunes of a gigantic iPod, and I love it! :D
You captured the look of the iPod perfectly in pixel form, menus and all. The animation is also very fluid and entertaining, especially while watching the emote dance. Although it's a little short, it's still an awesome emote!
The only thing I don't quite like is the light color of the headphones. They blend in with the light dA background and make it kind of difficult to spot. :hmm: Maybe a slightly darker gray color? :shrug:
But anyway, brilliant job with this, i applaud you. :clap:

Hey! This is adorable and really awesomely animated. I love the little boogie the guy does when the song is playing.
Some things I thought were not quite right were... well, eh, when he jumps up, he hits the menu button twice. I might just be being picky, but it bugs me a bit. Maybe have him jump up to hit the menu button once, and then slightly lower to hit the center button? The headphones are also a bit small and kind of invisible.
I'd say something about the pixeling, but my tastes run toward super-shiny, squishy-looking emotes and I know that's not everybody's thing. xD
Anyway, I can't make emotes for my life, so who am I to judge? :x

this is really really great! :la:
great practicing! =D

tho there are 4 things i'd like to point out!

1. the headphone cord, where it plugs, seems unnatural. perhaps bending it a bit more would be great!

2. the 'MENU' word could be improved as on the ipod it's all uppercase, and the 'e' being bigger than the 'nu' really bothers me.

3. the headphone size is not proportional. the plug is almost the size of the headphone on this! the headphone could be bigger, as seen here :pointr:[link]

4. the dancing dance speed/sync. well, as some said, the dancing is too short, perhaps you could make the bar go slower.
and about the sync, it bothers me how the bar waits the tard to turn around before starting the song and how the tard starts and stops dancing at the exact same time the bar starts and stops. perhaps the bar starting before the tard turns around, and the tard stop dancing after the song is finished will give it a much more natural aspect.

i'm so so sorry if it sounded harsh in any way! :noes:
but i just wanted to give my opinion on how to improve this already great piece =D
