I love it! It's great. But can it get any larger?

About the animation... The fact that he is looking up seems to be significant so what about a light beaming down on him? Or a flash from his right eye?

The world needs more geniuses with humility; there are so few of us left.

For some reason, whenever i try to do ANYTHING on Photoshop, it says "Error, not enough Memory (RAM)"

Any suggestions?

how much RAM does your computer have?

The only thing i could suggest would be to clean out your computer of any unused or unwanted items, put things you dont use, but dont want to delete onto a CD (or a few), do a disk cleanup, defrag, and then try it again.

It's the maximum size for an avatar I'm afraid, 115 x 115 pixels, being rectangular in shape it means only the hieght can be 115, the width is 86. It could be wider but I'd have to draw extra picture myself which would invariably decrease the quality.

That said, a light beaming down sounds great, I'll see what I can do but I may need to ask the assistance of another animator here. I draw everything (Still!) with Windows Paint so light/flashing effects are pretty difficult to do without the artistic prowess of photoshop.

I'll give it my best shot, and if it's awfull I'll call in some backup  thumbsup.gif

Edit:

On a seperate note, the seriously out-of-date Gallery is getting on my nerves, it was a great idea to begin with but due to the amount of space all the avatars take up it's impossible to view all of them in one visit as the site exceeds its bandwidth.

So, we need a new solution, I propose we all host our avatars elsewhere, like photobucket.com, and then each have a post with all our avatars in. Then I can link each post to the first post in this thread so every animator can have their own page so to speak.

So what do we think? The only issue I can see is that there may be a limit to the amount of images you can post in one thread, I've yet to find out.

Hey, barman, if you need me to, I can host your guy's avatars. So you can put them on a website or something.

I have an FTP on a friend's computer.

Cheers Janiel thats kind of you but we're talking nearly 200 avatars here, not to mention everytime someone does an avatar you'd need to update everything, it might end up being more hassle than it's worth.

Anyway, I just asked SaRuMaN and he says there's no limit to the amount of images you can link in a post, so if we all have our own posts we can all do our own updating and not have to bother anyone else, and every animator can display their work not just me and UA  thumbsup.gif

It wouldn't be hard to update it. (Just saving, and doing a drag-and-drop into a folder.) But simply posting them seems a tad easier. Let me know if you change your mind or anything. thumbsup.gif

OK, I'll start off:

I've uploaded all my avatars to photobucket, then linked them here so apologies but if you're on a dial-up connection you might be waiting a while  hmm.gif

There have been so many avatars I can't remember which ones I've done from scratch, which ones people used, or even ones I haven't touched.

There may be some avatars here that I downloaded with the intention of altering but never got round to it so if you find one here that's your work and not mine (UA, this probably only applies to you) please accept my apologies and tell me and I'll remove it.

I just can't remember  blink.gif
