Slot Car Speedway by rhysd Slot Car Speedway by rhysd
I made this animation of a slot car track for my friends slot car businesses website. It took a fair while but overall im pleased with it.

C&C always welcomed.

UPDATED - the people watch the cars now :)

New update - 4 years later and a DD. thanks :D

updated the file to a new one with transparent background thanks to the guy below who fixed it up for me. I am happy to say I can create transparency 4 years later so it won't happen again!

And thanks for all the new nice comments :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-10-22
Slot Car Speedway by ~rhysd History Lesson. Here is an early piece of Isometric PixelArt beautifully animated over 30 frames. A lovely soft color pallet was used and the overall effect is quite mesmerizing. ( Featured by ShoneGold )

Hmm it seems like there should be a bridge where the cars disappear for a bit, unless slot car tracks can overlap like that?

This made it as a Daily Deviation?

I'm not sure if I'm surprised. For it's quality and attention to detail, no, but that anything slot car related made it on here, yes.

I made the background transparent for you, and reduced the dimensions of the image accordingly. [link] Hope that helps. :)

Definitely worthy of a DD. Submitted 4 years ago, and still setting an excellent example for the Pixel Art galleries!

I don't like it. The perspective seems to be all wrong. Looks like the part away from the guys is higher than the part facing them...

Amazing!

A friend of mine also runs a track and I'll have to (with your permission, of course) show him this in case he wants to put it on the website for the joint, if he ends up making one.

My money's on the red car... always for the underdog. I love this! I know how much time animating these can take so I really can appreciate it. If anything, I would've also animated the two kids as well but, it's great as is too :) (Smile)
