Check out my new "Balrog whap" icon:
The original animation (113Kb) is one of Balnazzar the Dreadlord from Warcraft III.
To fit it within 40Kb, I did the following using Adobe (Macromedia) Fireworks 8:
- Used the magic wand tool to pick the image apart from the background, and deleted the background.
- Pasted the (36) frames into a new 100x100 canvas.
- Removed the last 17 frames out of 35, leaving just the right-handed whap (18 frames).
- Saved smaller color lookup table (CLUT) automatically - this one has just 14 colors.
Here's a double whap. It's 60Kb, though, so it fits only on GreatestJournal, not LiveJournal.
Edit, 01:30 CDT Tue 15 Aug 2006 - The image on the right is a 40Kb version.
