Explodicon.. Fireworks Night.. by Wooded-Wolf Explodicon.. Fireworks Night.. by Wooded-Wolf
It's almost bonfire night in Britain, well officially it's on the fifth (the day after tomorrow) but they start it on Saturday (AKA tonight). For anyone who doesn't know it's a night where we set off fireworks to celebrate the failure of Guy Fawkes' plans. Rather ironic setting off mini explosions to celebrate the prevention of one big one... I think that may be the point but if not it is totally screwed up...


So here's an Emoticon where the little white emoticon hurtles towards us the separates in a rather boring fashion.

I had a better idea involving a kind of fountain effect with trails of glittery stuff but I couldn't figure out how to do it and I really didn't want to make such a complicated animation.



Oh well, hope you like... P.s - it looks like a team of superheroes or something out of a certain film. I'll let you guess which one.

Please don't steal...


Yay! Thanks for all of the :+fav:s and the Daily Deviation!

P.s. The film was the Matrix when Neo does that weird flight bit at the end. But sadly didn't explode..

Remember, remember the fifth of November with this beautiful explosion of rainbow-colored emoticons. Explodicon.. Fireworks Night.. by ~Wooded-Wolf has all the color and vibrance of a fireworks show without the permanent inner ear damage. ( Suggested by synconi and Featured by livius )

All I can say about this amazing piece of work is: there aren't a lot of animations of emotes separating into multicolored copies of themselves, and counting this one, I've seen only two. Nice work, man! This definitely deserves a favorite from me!

XD Neo the exploding...what a mental image...

This is cool. It's like every grey-minded person's nightmare.

LOL it also reminds me of something the Doctor (of Doctor Who) said once: "It'll all go up in a great big unph of energy!"

Wooded-Wolf Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2008
That's rather a good point about a grey mind. The main emoticon seems like it's splitting up into each aspect of it's personality.

Doctor Who may be on to something there.. *Contemplates thought*

Technically it's not exploding. It's splitting up into the many fragments of it's personality...

Congrats on the DD, and excellent emoticon! I wish I knew how to animate them...

Wooded-Wolf Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2008
Thanks - I don't know why this emoticon is so popular but a DD is always a good thing :)

And to answer your wish it basically involves drawing a lot of slightly different images, saving them under different names (preferably 1,2,3,4 etc.) and then sticking them in an animation program. There are tutorials out there about making animated gifs.

Bah, you only have 50 comments thus far? So unfair! It's a lovely animation and makes me smile when I see it. I like the different expressions on each.

PS Which superheroes?

No specific superheroes - it just looks like an attack formation: flying behind each other then splitting up..

A wolf-shaped Mudkip isn't really that funny..

We celebrate the same thing here in the Bahamas (since we were a British colony) only instead of a bonfire, people make scare-crow like dummies from old clothes, etc. and attach them to crosses or large stakes to burn. Quite a wicked concept but its fun. ;)

:iconwooded-wolf:
Wooded-Wolf Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2008
Yeah, we used to be allowed to burn a Guy Fawkes dummy but I think it's against the law now. I guess people could disguise anything as Guy Fawkes and dispose of it (what a disturbing thought..).

P.s. Sorry about the late reply
