This is a monster of an animation, so it might take a couple minutes to load on slow internet connections.

My 1000th deviation! You all wanted something big, so here it is. *

Before I go any further, this is an entry for the June EMTC. Theme is Vacation. [link] For our family, vacations almost always center around going to a theme park. Usually Disney or Universal, as we have family in Florida. Though, we have some local parks we've visited for day trips. Note: This is a non-competing entry because *Ravenswd is a judge this month.

I have been wanting to do a roller coaster animation for over a year, but I knew it would be a colossal project. And, OMG, it WAS! This took well over 30 hours, mostly done in the wee hours of the morning.

I was gonna write a wall of text, but I'm gonna pass right now. *Ravenswd will be posting up some WIPs in his gallery, and I will be posting some of the individual elements in my Scraps soon. I'll get into detail about the animation then, since I don't want to bore everyone now.

:eager: WIPs are UP! Composite walk-through in my Scraps here ---> [link] + *Ravenswd's B&W wheel WIP animation ---> [link] + *Ravenswd's Final draft coaster animation ---> [link] + Tent alone ---> [link]

All of that said, it was a huge project and I'm really super geeked we pulled it off. At the end of the day, about 10% of the work was done by *Ravenswd and 90% by me. But, I really couldn't have done it in time without his graphics magic and general help--so a big thanks to Jim.

Stats: Frames: 324 - Time: 22 seconds - Colors: 224 - Size: Over 5 MG! :faint:

*** :aww: As with most of my smileys, you may use this on and off dA, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. If you do use it for something, it would be nice if you could comment and let me know. It encourages me to make more smileys if I know people are using/enjoying them.

Please note, this piece is NOT available for commercial use.***


For fun, my 500th deviation...

*In case anyone is doing the math, due to dA now classifying news and journals as deviations, the count is all fricked up. It's showing I have nearly 1100 deviations, when I've only posted 20-ish pieces since this one. So, I'm not sure if this was technically my 1000th art deviation or was perhaps a few under. But, considering I have more than a hundred formal emotes in my Scraps, I think it washes out.


:iconminniethanksplz: for the DD! Love and kisses to *upsguy1997, =The--Last--Hope, and `PatrickRuegheimer for suggesting, and special thanks to ^krissi001 for featuring. Also a huge glomp for all of my watchers who encouraged me to bite the bullet and do something epic for my number 1000! :heart:

I promise to respond to all comments. I'm actually sick today, so a bit slow-going, but I will get to everyone.

*upsguy1997 said: " Amusement Park by `Mirz123 is a brilliant, fun and colorful piece. While it will no doubt be an instant hit in the pixel arts communities, I'm sure the rest of dA would appreciate the attention to detail and use of experiences to produce her milestone piece."

=The--Last--Hope said: "The pixel work in this scene is visually stunning. I could literally sit and watch this over and over again. The smooth animation of the rollercoaster also makes this piece of art a top job!"

`PatrickRuegheimer said: "Oh god, this blew me away! The animation is so incredible smooth and the pixeling from the whole piece is just epic!!" ( Suggested by a-kid-at-heart and Featured by Krissi001 )
