ee-motes by BenediktXVII ee-motes by BenediktXVII
This is my entry for the contest [link] to the Avatar of :iconee-motes:

Ready, check, #*$@$... filesize is 46 kB, limit is 30k. *delete* *check* *change* *delete more* *check* *change* *check* *delete some more* no transparency ...whew... 29.9k...done

I needed more time to get the size under 30k than to create this emote.

--edit--
I've changed the backgroundcolour, i hope its better now.

some more informations
original: 224 Frames and ca. 26 seconds, 256 colours
now: 169 Frames and ca. 21 seconds, 74 colours

This is cute and funny .I like how it's not just an ordinary icon but it includes a little story in it :D

File size limits suck! :shifty: The first thing I did when I saw this was check it too! `Krissi001 made some good suggestions, other than that I really liked it. Especially the whole EEE part. My wife does that all the time! :lol:

I assume it avoids some kind of problem, but it seems like they could make it larger. :shifty: Personally, I'm amazed when people are able to do so many frames with such a small file size.

I don't like it when I feel stress when making an animated icon because I have to keep my eye on the size .I sometimes have to remove frames or replace colors/transparency to avoid it.

That's awesome!
Only the background annoys me a bit. Maybe you could use the colour of the groups page background? And you can reduce the file-size be reducing the amount of colours on the Emotes. The Yellow Emote already has 23 colours and the red 19. :noes: Have you tried to use a hand-pixelled shading instead of a gradient?
