So here is Robo-Tank,
I know it's not perfect but I did spend a fair amount of time making this GIF,
I drew everything in paint tool sai, then animated everything in photoshop,
I just wanted to cram in as much movement as possible and I did have plans for there to be some more things moving around, blinking lights, more tank-men, ect,
but I was running out of time.

It ended up being 4.41mb and the animation is 12 frames because that's how long the background animation is,
so every different animation had to be able to loop evenly inside 12 frames,
Like the tank-man is 6 frames, so he loops twice,
most of Robo-tank like the arm, cannon, exhaust pipes and smoke are 3 frames, so they loop 4 times before the end but the lens flair and pumping hoses are 10 frames so they have a break in the loop.

I hope you guys enjoy this and have a great Robot Day!

Thank you :D

Nice work on your art / GIF. How long did it take you to make it?
(Also I feel like there is something wrong with the tank... lol XD )
But anyway great work and i hope more people see it! :)

Rennis5 responds:

I couldn't tell you exactly how long I spent on it, but i think it would have been close to 10 or 15 hours,
because I was completely winging it and testing animations, I think I deleted 3 backgrounds before I got the final one that worked really well.
Thank you :D

Nice work man, I dig all the intricate metalwork on it!

Rennis5 responds:

Thanks dude :D

That tank man runs like his legs are the front legs of a horse

Rennis5 responds:

Look at his happy little smile, maybe he is skipping in joy?
It was my first ever running animation.

That's a weird looking penis, loved the visor's reflection

Rennis5 responds:

I was waiting for someone to make a penis comment and I actually changed the drawing to make it look less like a penis.
Almost didn't put in the visor's reflection in but I am really glad I did with the lens flair.
