:bulletyellow: I got a Daily Deviation for it. So I have to say really big thanks for every suggester, commenter and even to the Favers :)

:bulletyellow: I also won the second place in `LeoLeonardo's contest, so I am realy proud of this pic :)

So.. After makeing a poll, if I should do a Tank related emoticon, I decided to do one.

:bulletred:It's also a subbmission for `LeoLeonardo's Emote Get Away Contest... Because its not a normal-day what they do there :evillaugh:

:bulletblue:I wanted to make it as real as a pixeled thing can be. I hope it worked.
I know, the umbrella is a bit noobish :(

:bulletred::bulletblue: Critiques are much welcome! Please give me some!:bulletblue::bulletred:

Some more info, statistics:
Frames: 128 :omg:
Time spent: 7,5 hours :omg::faint:
Made with: Gimp :strong:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-10-07
Breathtaking details on both the background and the tank itself! When =madb0y decides to Get Away with a Tank you definitely don't want to stand in the way. ( Suggested by PatrickRuegheimer and Featured by CookiemagiK )
Haha! Truly brilliant man!

I love how this is essentially a continuation of the previous tank animation. But it's still very recognizable as such.
The driver is STILL preoccupied with blowing things to :iconsmitheroonsplz:.

The (ninja?) can finally take a break from running alongside the tank.
(He's gotta be in shape by now.)

And as usual, the sleeping guy... Is STILL sleeping.
Though it seems he ran out of drool in the last animation. And learned a way to avoid sunburns.

I love how you sped up the tank since the last animation, it fits the 'getting away' concept. And you seemed to fix the lag when they're firing a bit better this time around.

The only thing I would suggest, (If it means anything coming from someone who isn't an emotist) is the umbrella.
I love the addition of it. But with the tank moving and the cannon firing, one would think it would move a little.

The stiffness of it doesn't quite fit the overall picture.
But I still love it. C:

This is a great piece of art! the animation is smooth, the background is nice, the shading is incredible, everything about it is great! I don't know how these people do it, but its amazing! I also like the detail in the grass, the tank, and umbrella's shiny top! Great work!

Hee hee, I remember I fell asleep a couple times during training when we were practicing on the Abrams simulators at my military school.

I woke up one time when we were getting shot at! The loader's chair was actually really cozy!

:XD: it would be funny if the one at the top has a sword instead of a canon and is screaming "Get me closer, i want to hit them with my sword!!!' Rofl and they would be going a mile per hour i love this its funny in its own way :XD:

Emoticons and joyriding in a jacked battle tank. Why didn't I think of that? :evillaugh:

(The one hang-up, though... the gas mileage to those things is especially crummy.)
