D:  Um my sai doesn't save images as gif files D:  I tried to save it in gimp but that's not working for some reason. The images won't actually drop into the unfreeze program! Help?

I know this is a little old, but I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful tutorial. I had never animated before in my life but I still managed to knock up a couple of blinking icons from this and I hope to make many more. Thank you very much :love:

Don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can't save the animation on MS Gif Animator, it keeps giving me an error message *sigh*

when you post them on DA do they have to be a specific size so that the blinking shows in the thumbnail as well o3o

I actually don't know how to make the blinky show up in the thumbnail. I always set a .png non-blink picture as the thumb

kiwicha Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012  Student General Artist
hehe in photoshop under the layer styles or whatever double click the layer and a box will show up and under stroke you can make an outline around the stuff in that layer.

Wow, so that's how it's done? O: I'll have to try this, even tho I don't have SAI, I do have PSCS3 which has an animation option. > 3<

I have a question tho; The lower eyelid is on a separate layer from the rest of the eye, right?
Reply
:iconkiwicha:
kiwicha Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011  Student General Artist
that's one way to do it. xD But the photoshop animation is pretty easy. I just figured out how to use it.

the whole eye is one layer. There are only other eye layers bc the different "openness" of them. Does that make sense?

:iconmokemono:
mokemono Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011
I already knew about the different layers, I was just curious because I didn't see a bottom eyelid with the half-open duplicate. xP

I'm sure it'll make a ton of sense when I try it, hurr xD

Thanks Kiwi : D I'll be sure to look at this when I finally decide to try ^^

ahhhh, I hardly draw a bottom eyelid to begin with. So it kinda disappears when i squish it. xD

I'm sorry if it seems difficult. I literally just found out you can make gif animations on photoshop. xD

Ha ha, no worries. :) I think, if it's going to be confusing at all, that it's because I don't have those animating programs. I've got SAI and Photoshop, and that's all I know how to use right now.
