I don't know much about art, but I know what I like. Behold the StarControl lovin'!
Original Size

Part 2 follows.

Star Control 1 Animated GIFs part 2

Avatar Size (100x100)

I'm most proud (and had to work hardest on) the Syreen. The original animation didn't have her unfolding her arms and making her do that while not having the crew look funny was tough. I was considering making that my avatar on every board I visit, but I have a policy about using someone else's artwork as an avatar when I have so much of my own to use.

So here's what I'm gussing the FAQs are going to be:
Q1. I've never seen these. They look cool but what are they?
A1. These are animations ripped from the full game portion of StarControl 1.

Q2. How long did it take to put these together?
A2. In actual work time, 3, maybe 4 hours to record, edit, and convert to GIFs. In terms of how long from beginning to end it's been over a year.

Q3. Can I use thse for...
A3. Dude (or Dudette, depending on your denomination), I'm putting them on the internet. If that's not invitation enough to have people use and abuse them i don't know what is. Besides, isn't not like they're my animations. I stole them from SC1. I expect to see these in people Avatars and posts. Personally I think the new "ZING" should look like:
Alliance Base Destroyed
or something along those lines

Q4. Hey could you do for me...? / I think you should do next....
A4. See A2 above. Over a year on these. I don't do requests. I have a life, a wife, two and a half kids, and a career. I really didn't have the time for the ones I did. You want something done, do it yourself.

They're amazing ani gifs, guesst. Some of the best I've seen. For people into Sci/Fi, they'd make fantastic avatars. I think the ani featuring the Syreen is my favourite, too.
