If you like Resident Evil and going oo-oo-ooah-ooah from time to time then you should definitely go and see ShadowLeggy's awesome Resident Evil Caramelldansen video. And if you like icons too, then you should stay right here and watch me proudly present

Q & A

Q.: Eeeewwww, poor quality!
A.: *sigh* Yes, yes I know. The 40k limit hates me. I'm sorry, but that's all I could do. Take it or leave it.

Q.: Eeeewww, there's character X next to my awesomesauce character Y! MAKE IT GO AWAY!
A.: Erm... no, sorry. I'm not going to do any more variations this time, so you'll have to stick with the pairings ShadowLeggy gave us.

Q.: But there's no character Z! Can't you make a character Z for me?
A.: Nope sorry, in case I didn't make that clear: The icons were all taken from ShadowLeggy's great video and feature the characters she chose. I'm not affiliated with her nor any kind of artistic drawing ability whatsoever, so there's really nothing I can do to help you.

+ DO NOT HOTLINK any of the images!
+ Credit lunargullicons if you like.
+ Comments and feedback are always appreciated.

I am probably going to steal most of them; these are amazing!

Glad you like them! I've been looking forward to finishing the batch for a long time, because Resident Caramelldansen is definitely worth it :D

Awesome icons. ::steals them all::

I hope you asked her if you could use this before making them, if not at least e-mail her and show her them. Also it wasn't that good. *Raises eyebrow* Note: I am an Professional Animator myself, I know what I'm talking about before anyone says "OMGZ U H8s her!?"¬_¬ I don't have anything against her and I'm not saying it's was bad either so...shush.

Anyways good job on making animated icons, they're tricky sods at times.=) I wish LJ allowed better us to upload quality ones.

*shrugs* I like it well enough and compared to everything I can do I think it's absolutely amazing. Though if you're a professional and can see the flaws then you should definitely talk to her, because as far as I know she's always looking for constructive criticism on her videos.

And thanks a lot, I tried my best within the limits of both the 40k line and my own PS experience. I see how a certain size limit is necessary, but sometimes it's just so damn frustrating!

Hmm...not the impression I've seen from the comments on YouTube when people crit but I could be mistaken, after all we do have bad days and sometimes people can say the silliest things. I know she has to deal with a lot of the internet retards who just spam her with hate messages, it's lame people are like that. But still even if it's bad crit you have to suck it up and hopefully understand what the person is trying to point out. 9 times out of 10 they've just worded it badly and mean well.=) If you don't listen you don't learn and then you don't improve. Simple. It's really stupid to have the attitude that everything is 100% perfect. Heck I know my work isn't.XD Btw this isn't a go in particular at her, just me ranting as usual.XD;;; But any animator/artist should always be trying to learn and improve.

Of course her animations are basic, I understand that and I do like the simplicity of them and the character designs...shame everyone's pretty much just traced the Caramelldansen animation though. Ah well so long as she enjoys making them that's all that matter. Wasn't aware she would like to talk to other animators, I'll give her a bell.=)

I know how you feel, if LJ upped the limit animated icons would look much better. I screened shot Ling from Mulan once (can't do video recordings on my comp) and made it into an icon only to find it wouldn't upload because it was too big. The quality pretty much got killed when I reduced it.T-T Again awesome job!=D

Basically I agree. Of course you should also see what you can make of bad crit, even if it's not exactly worded nicely, though especially when you have to deal with dozens of "Fuckin' sucks." and the like in your youtube comments I can imagine that you start ignoring comments unless there isn't at least some kind of positive feedback involved that makes you think that the person may actually want to give suggestions instead of just flaming you for the heck of it.

I'm not sure if she wants to, but from what I remember she mentioned looking for feedback, at least in the form of comments, so I could imagine that she'd like to talk to somebody who's also into animation and can give her a more useful opinion than 'omg suxx!' or 'omg rocks!!!' on her videos (especially the ones she cares about more I'd guess, for example I think the Caramelldansen was really just done for fun, but from time to time she mentions having done something to try out a new style or so).

And thanks again! XD

Lol! Yes you make some very good points. Slightly off topic but is related, I upload artwork on DevinatArt and usually get "Cool!" when something a little more is useful. For me as a developing artist I would like hints and tips on what to change and how to improve. Obviously not everyone's like me but it's a shame when people say they don't want crit because they're too scared or embarrassed to get it. So am I but for me if I want to improve I'll accept it, got to get over the ego because not everything a person creates is 100% perfect. Obviously DA is just about ego to most people and when they become known for a particular way of drawing most refuse to learn and improve thus their work over the years, for their age, looks like a 15 year old drew it...

I love the stamp on DA that says "Kawaii is critique HOW?" Which is very true. Just like "OMG dat sux!" If people knew how time consuming animations take to make they'd think again. I'm glad Leggy is doing animations because she wants to and it's fun. It is very rewarding afterwards when it's complete. You just feel like doom and gloom for a while whilst making them.XD; Actually I know an animation site she could join where she can get good useful crit from fellow animators, don't worry they'd be nice to her. For the basic packages she uses I'm impressed at what she can make.=)

Yeah I do have bad days. I handle things just however I see fit really. I DO rather hear constructive critisism rather then just Lolsux. But even if it's worded kindly, depending on the subject matter I still may rebuttal it. And also depending on the person, I have a little history with some people so sometimes I can just tell when a certain person is saying something but is actually being hella sarcastic. And sometimes even normal constructive critisism is tough to deal with just cause like you said at one point.... people aren't me, they don't understand how I work. A lot of things I do intentionally which may seem 'imperfect' to some people. Like well... it's not like it's supposed to be perfect anyway.

A lot of people assume stuff, saying I 'think' I'm the best at what I do, or that I'm 'better' then others and all sorts of other crap. I get a lot of beef from other artists who (ironically) say that THEY are better and think I'm stuck up and dont deserve anything I have. When I don't even think the quality of art has anything to do with my standing, I think it was more so the humor. Because anyone can see that back in the day I had very little true animation at all, and wasnt even done that well. But then as you said again, I'm more about simplicity. Flash and RE had been done over and over and over again, and I wanted to do something new (not to mention its the only movie program I have). And that also I feel had a great deal to do with all the happenings.

So I dunno, maybe I'm just one of the cocky or bratty or scared people you mentioned, but unless it comes from someone who does similar art/animation (programs/tools) as I do, it's hard to even compare and relate skills, let alone learn anything. Someone that's a Flash user trying to give me tips, unless it's something really generic, it's hard to relate. And yes most of the advice I get is either about changing programs or fixing something thats basically impossible TO fix (like quality or music choice). So when I get comments like that I just tell them I'm sticking with what I got until I feel otherwise.

Anyway gotta run, rambling over for now

#6 and #8 make me die! Great work, I love them :)
25th-May-2008 03:03 am (UTC)
Cute! She's such a nice person, I love her cartoons. Some people are just rude about animation these days. It is what it is and if it's fun doesn't have to be Godly.
13th-Jun-2008 01:10 am (UTC)
I feel hypnotized while looking at all of those. o.o
9th-Aug-2008 09:08 am (UTC)
Taking all!! x333
can I credit you instead of the graphics community? I mean~ It's 'cause when I save icons in my computer I put them in a folder with the name of the person who made them xD if you wanna me credit the community, then I change the folder's name so I can remember who to credit ; )
9th-Aug-2008 09:16 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D
Uhmwell, like I said in my Q&A I suggest the community's name since it leads to the icons directly (there are none at my personal journal after all), though my profile also has a link to this community, so you can really go about it whichever way you like. ^^
9th-Aug-2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
o.o yay! Thanks for answer so fast : D
