Buddy looks like he is really enjoying the fall weather!

And, yes, I added my special Brandi effect of making Buddy pant! Wink

Then I made some of his fur move in the breeze!

He's adorable! You are lucky to have him and he is lucky to have you!

~Brandi

Bumping the above post for dasparkenator and Buddy!

Oh my goodness this is HILARIOUS!!!!!  I love it, thank you!!!!  You are a wonderful angel!!!!

Brandi these are wonderful!  We are so blessed to have you here and offering your special gift to us.  I love the very first one the most, with both the monkey and scientist blinking. I adore the lab!!! I am wondering since lab monkey is connected to scientist if you could make the bulbs on their heads light up one at a time like they are having a mind meld?  Again, if you are too busy, or if I am asking for something that would take I long time I would totally undersand.

You are such a special person to do this for us and make us all smile.

God Bless.

I think we should save something for Christmas, don't you? Wink

~Brandi

Again, your work is amazing.  I am not a big Christmas person.  It changed for me when my father passed the week before Christmas and it has never been the same at that time of the year.  I am very happy with what you have done .  Thank you again.

Perhaps instead of a Christmas avatar, you might be interested in a winter one?

I'll add the light effect you asked for in it, if you'd like.

I made a Halloween avatar for you today after I made this one, while I still had all the files open.

Tonight, I worked on the light effect you wanted, and I'll put it into a winter avatar for you for later. Okay?

Glad you like the Autumn one! I like it too Wink

Sorry but I am too tired to figure out how to clear this quote stack. LOL

But I went ahead and added white lighting to the bulbs, firing off one by one, beginning with the monkey (so small, hard to see!) and following through to the scientist.

I am not sure if this result is as good as expected, but I did my best with it.

(It looked a bit better with different colored lights in the Christmas one I made, but I understand your wishes.)

If I come up with an idea for a different way to do this, I'll let you know.

In the meantime, here is what I came up with:

love all of your avi's ... there are so many that now i can't find the one i wanted to reffrence but the one with i think ?snoopy? and the background ?scrolling? by... that's the one that i was wondering which program you used to make it... as i said i do tower/banner ads for work and a lot of people have no clue what they want and i am running out of ideas/new tricks since i have to pretty much design their whole ad without any input or ideas from the client.... would love to start playing around with the software if you don't mind telling me which one you used for that.... again thanks in advance

So sorry you thought I was ignoring you. I am just hyper-sensitive to discussing avatars and art in MP threads here. Although I see people doing it all the time, we have been told not to do that. So, I do my very best to avoid it.

NickandNora asked me the other day a very similar question. I am going to post it here:

Quote
Wow, what beautiful autumn avis! Very clever use too. I'd love to know how you make these. It looks like it would be fun too.

Hi N&N:

I began doing this about a year ago when I joined SM.

I am totally self-taught. I use paintshop pro (several versions .. 6,7 and 9) and animation shop which is associated with paintshop pro. I have also used other animation programs on occasion such as ULead Gif Animator and Easy Gif Animator. I also use Photoshop and Image Ready and Adobe Photoshop Elements on occasion. It just depends on what I want to do as to what program I use.

It is a lot of fun. It is also very time-consuming. I actually work an average of 8 hours every day on avatars! I have found that the more I do, the better I get and the more ideas I can come up with. A year ago, some of the things I do today, I would have considered impossible to do.

There is probably better software out there, definitely newer software out there, but for me, right now, I am accustomed to the old programs I use and satisfied with them.

I am glad you enjoy seeing the work I do. I hope you check out some software and perhaps some tutorials out there and maybe the bug will bite you too! LOL

~Brandi

I am thinking you are talking about the effect I used in this one?



I work really hard on these avatars and I do hate giving out my trade secrets. But if that is what you want to know, I'll tell you in email, rather than make it public. Wink

Hi Brandi!

I am just peeking in. I have seen how beautiful your avi's are so I wanted to check them all out. Your work is really exceptional. Each one really reflects your heart and soul. I wish I had the patience to be able to learn how to do this. But I tend to not "read the manual" when I get something until I really need to. Kind of like when you buy a new camera, you just want to take pictures.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I thought your work is very nice and how touched I am that you spend so much time creating new avi's for monkeys. an angelic monkey

Take Care!

Cartfly:

So nice of you to drop by and so nice of you to make such nice comments!

I often see people's avatars and practice with them. I saw yours a few weeks ago and animated your beer for practice! It is foaming and carbonated. teehee!

Check it out:



Please come by often and if there is anything I can do for you anytime, let me know Wink

Thanks again, Cartfly! Oh, and I don't read the manuals until I am completely desperate too! LOL

Oh! We were posting at the same time. LOL

I actually found the original picture your avatar came from and used it, rather than the one you were using. It's a bit larger too. I am glad you wanted to use it!

I took the liberty of changing you orange for the season! Then I had a bright idea:

LOL! That was too much fun to do! My husband and I laughed out loud while I was doing it. Wink

I also designed you in your usual pink, in case you don't like being orange:
