Spontaneous Combustion by Zneak Spontaneous Combustion by Zneak
I don't really like the color change of the emote. Any suggestion to make the transition more natural?
And I'm open to every other suggestion as well. :)
[EDIT] Made some better-looking fire. =)
-------
Inspired from a nightmare I had in the night of last Friday.

There was that ugly girl the from ISP who came in for no reason. I noticed there was smoke coming from her pants, so I said "umm, your clothes are on fire."
She undressed (she looked like she was mummified), and the clothes were undamaged— then I understood that she was the torch, not the clothes. I threw water at her and she SCREAMED THE HELL OUT OF ME.
I then woke up.

I didn't have any nightmare worth waking me up at 4:50 AM since like 6 years (or waking me up at all, for that matter). :paranoid: I spent the rest of my sleep time doing weird dreams, like my operating systems professor triggering the alarm for fun, sending neurotoxic gas in the classroom, and letting us escape one by one. Then I complained to the department. The school actually looked more like a space ship than a school, though.
I never died in a dream.

XD And THAT, children, is why spontaneous combustion should never be attemped at home (or anywhere else, for that matter!)! Nice job on the animation; and creative idea! ^^

Unfortunately no. :( It's too big to be made an avatar, so we can't make a plz account out of it, and I don't think dA would ever make it an usable smilie (though I'd have no objection ^^).

Looks pretty awesome ! You really managed to capture the "OMFG IMMA TORCH1!1!!!" feeling. But the fire seems unreal - or doesn't fit the "emoticon" style.

And about the color transition, instead of turning white then green - how about trying blue-to-green while its running?

I don't know :3. I've only made emoticons a couple of times.

Oh, by the way, it's in the wrong category :).

For the fire, what do you think would fit an emote style? =/ I've never seen any emote with fire, actually.
Do you think that if the emote was visible under the fire it would be better?

I could try blue-to-green while running, but at first I felt it was really unnatural. But thinking of it, blue-to-white-to-green is, too. :paranoid:

It's in the wrong category? :ohnoes:

(thanks for the useful comment ^^)
