Journey of pixels... by LeonSpires Journey of pixels... by LeonSpires
...begins with a hop.

Why :?
Because I can :evillaugh: Ma ha ha ha ha

Original quote:
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Lao-tzu

1 in = 300 pixels
1 mile = 19008000 pixels
1000 miles = 19,008,000,000 pixels
(this emote took some math :P)

More useless info
- There are 165 frames in this emote each one 0.1 sec
- that's 16.5 seconds for one loop
- It travels 20 pixels each loop
- For it to reach 1000 miles it would half to loop 950400000 times
- that would be 15681600000 seconds
- 261360000 minutes
- 4356000 hours
- So at this rate it will take 181500 days to travel 1000 miles =P
It will be awhile

Yes I am such a nerd :XD:

Edit 1: I made the edges transparent and made the stamp the correct DA size. Because of the scrolling letters I was unsure of how to make the edges transparent. When I joined the group stamp kingdom they said in there rules that stamps need to have transparent edges and I wanted to submit this one thankfully they redirect beginner stamp maker to experienced ones that are willing to help. So I contacted :iconrstovall: and he emailed me telling me how to use masking to hide the words outside the border. I really appreciate how helpful he was. =)

Edit 2:My first DD :wow: (I'm still in shock) Thanks to :icongaioumonbatou: for featuring it and thanks everyone for the :+favs: and comments. =)

I couldn't help but smile at Journey of pixels... by *LeonSpires. Check out the mathematical process in the artist's comments, too. It's a lot to think about, but an awesome concept brought to pixel life! ( Featured by GaioumonBatou )

How did u animate this!?
LeonSpires Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Using Photo Shop. You create layers and then animate them by creating frames in the animation window and then moving / hiding or un-hiding layers. there are plenty of tutorials on DA with more info if you are interested.

Hope that helps :D btw I like your avatar. ;)
