So... this totally might need a preloader and I haven't given it one. Even though it really is just a loop and only 412 KB. Oh well. Hopefully none of you have a slow internet connection. If you do, or just want to see the raw .PNG for any reason, you can check it out here: [link] (I warn you, though, this is one of the largest things I've ever worked on... very good for a desktop background... not so great viewing at full size.) It's even larger than the flash, being 540 KB. Oh well~~Also, you can right-click and zoom in on my flash projects like this one, if you want to for any reason.
Done in Flash, but the skin was colored in Paint Tool SAI and I imported it back in. Like HELL I was going to color every frame of animated hair. Screw that.
I hope you enjoy it because it took a lot out of me. No, this wasn't why I disappeared for two weeks. This didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would. It's actually pretty simple to animate hair like that, so I wouldn't call it impressive so much as I'd call it 'pretty'.
If I could do one thing better, I'd make the shadows under the two strands of hair that move a bit more ambiguous. x_x They kind of stand out when his hair moves away from their starting points.edit: So, over 150 favs in the first day of it being up. Wonderful, guys, but I'm not the sort to go thank you all individually, so I'll do it now - Thank You! - even if you've fav'd and ran. Remember, fav-ing is something you do for your own self, so you can find it again later - but comments would be nice. (Especially the sort where you give me something to respond to~ I like hearing recommendations and ideas.)
