    I'm currently adding a rider to this thing and planning on throwing in a background and coloring it. Any obvious messups at this early stage? Suggestions for cool things to add? Good ways to make it look like it's moving really fast? I tried to look at how they animate the wheels in Akira, but the types of motorcycles they ride in it have big plates covering most of the wheel.

    It's looking good so far It looks like this is Flash? The only thing I can think of atm to make it look like it's moving faster, is to literally speed up the timing of the arm movements. Maybe also consider having the head be a separate part with a slight up and down tilt as it's running.

    Thanks, YangDaniel027! I agree speed is key. I'm actually animating this in photoshop cs2 (it's free and i've never used flash before) and I've got it set to have zero delay between frames. Do you think it could be faster if I were able to load it into flash or some other program?

    Oh okay I see. Hmm, I'm not sure about how it would work with CS2. Is there a way you can adjust how long you can hold each frame?

    Couldn't come up with any obvious way to lower the time spent on each frame. PS says it's holding each frame for 0.0 seconds. I will have to do some more research. In the meantime, I've made some more progress: Name:  tumblr_namy3rsvuI1rvwctfo1_1280.gif

    Speed of animated gifs with zero frame times (or with very low times) depends on browser.
    But mostly it is 0.1s for frame so 10 FPS.

    FF, Chrome or Opera accept minimal 0.02s for frame so 50 FPS.
    Safari or IE have 0.06s minimal time for frame so almost 17 FPS.

    To get higher FPS (for example in most cases optimal 60) something else then animated gif needs to be used, like flash or html5 canvas.

    So set your frames to 0.06 and you get it 1.6666 times faster:

    More info for example here:

    @bzgzd Woah! Good tip! It doesn't look any different in photoshop, but when you put it online its way faster. I even tried kicking it down to 0.02 but it was kinda spasmodic. Will definitely remember this when making gifs.

    been working on colors today
    don't know if it's a good idea to color it before adding a background, since any colors i add now might constrain the colors i can use in the background. we will see.
    also I am going to have to do some research on how to make a good and fast looking background
